Ted and I were met with fog this morning on our walk at 07:00.
But Ted and I have reached an agreement now.
Basically “bugger off, and I will do the walk without you”!
Taking photos as I go, obviously!
And, remarkably, Ted, so far, has stayed with me. I have a bag of treats and if he a) comes when he’s called or b) arrives just because, then he gets a treat as well as lots of enthusiasm about his arrival and exemplary behaviour.
Today Ted met a cat on the golf-course and gave chase, albeit not very fast and the cat sauntered off.
If he does this to Monster, I full expect Monster to swiftly express his displeasure with a good swipe and hopefully Ted will learn this is not the behaviour we expect or encourage.
Monster doesn’t take prisoners. Ever.
It was a beautiful still and quiet morning walk.
And guess what? Ted was home, waiting for me at the garden gate.
And yes, he got his well-done-for-going-on-a-dog-walk treat!
