While we were walking along the shoreline yesterday, a black and white dog suddenly came rushing towards me and promptly dropped her ball for me to throw.
Tash is a cocker spaniel and absolutely gorgeous. She has a playmate called Lucifer who is a totally black cocker cross and a real devil but fun, though I think they call her Lucy. She is a little more shy, but once she got the idea that this person in the bright yellow coat was up to throwing balls, well, you can imagine how I was occupied for the next fifteen minutes.
Hubby took this picture of Tash as she tried to get him to join in too.
When we first met up with these two, oh must be almost two years ago now, they were a little wary of strangers and it was unheard of that they would share their balls, let alone bring it to someone other than ‘Mom’.
Yep, Tash brought her ball to me and we played for a little while as Maggie looked on. Maggie was never one for playing fetch, or she would fetch the ball, but not give it back. This could be a wee bit embarrassing if the ball in question had been pilfered from another dog in the first place. Happy memories of Maggie on the beach one day with two younger dogs who let the old lady join in. You can read that here
