If we were in any doubt, we’re not now.
I walked Maggie on my own this morning whilst Hubby got on with the touching up.
I was out for over two hours, and sampled the 99p breakfast where Maggie had a 50p sausage.
The nose was in full sniffathon mode, so she didn’t miss anything, but walking back along the sea front was a different matter.
I kept her on a lead as that particular stretch of beach is off limits to dogs, and when I stopped to take a photo, I spoke to her.
This was the reaction
or lack of it as I could not get her attention (my foot is on the lead handle by the way).
This was the view though
I walked a fair way today, through the park and along the sea front, then after our breakfast, back through the park, up to the sea front again and an ice cream, then home via the park again.
The above is the kids paddling pool, completely off limits to water fowl and dogs.
Hubby took Maggie for a walk this afternoon and nearly lost her.
She did not respond to his calling, neither did she react to the banging of sticks together or along the metal railings, taking off like a shot across the road.
Luckily the van driver’s responses were fast.
Her days of off lead walking are over as we cannot take a chance now that she’s so unresponsive and we shall be looking for a warning vest that says ‘Deaf’.
She’s exhausted now, so any walks will be on her extending lead round the Avenue.
