It was a lovely crisp quiet Winter’s day. My back was hurting and I find going for a walk can help – gets it gently moving again rather than locking up. I would rather exercise than reach for the painkillers.
Having been to collect Lambie and Lambster home from the hill on a few occasions, I don’t trust Lambie not to pack his spotted hankie and set off (ungrateful so and so that he is).
Lambie gets very narky if he is walked with a collar and lead so I fashioned a very effective harness (Patent pending) for him by putting Hetja’s headcollar on him backwards.
It worked a treat.
Flossie led Lambie using an extendable lead and we had a very civilised walk to Watsness and back with Lambster dutifully following, because he is a good boy.
How we struggled looking at this view!
The way home.
And this, I think, is Lambster’s small-bounce-of-happiness! He is getting much tamer now and we spent time this morning talking and stroking him. Such a darling boy. He does long runs of lambie-bounces with all four legs on the way home Boing, boing, boing.
What a wonderful walk it was. BeAnne is somewhere – don’t worry she didn’t disown us. (Loki did not go with us because he had gone on a long walk with OH).
That Lambie harness was very effective. The way forward for Lambie, I think.
