I took Pepper in the car (as she has to learn to travel) to see the Minions. They were fine and afterwards as her reward, I took her to the beach to explore.
She was keen as mustard.
And thought the beach was BRILLIANT!
To start with, I kept Pepper on the lead as I was not sure about her recall.
There were so many distractions.
Everything had to be explored.
We pretty much had the beach to ourselves.
The trouble is Pepper is almost totally invisible in any background (my next dog will be fluorescent, I have promised myself).
More exploring. This was Pepper’s walk so I let her do what she wanted.
And then we met a friend. They were my almost-neighbours and, after some consultation, we agreed to let our dogs of their leads to play.
Pepper was totally smitten but she behaved much better. She had nice manners and, although besotted by a bigger dog, she didn’t annoy. A small someone is going to sleep well tonight and probably me!
