It’s Murphy Monday’!
Here is is on ‘squirrel watch’, one of his favourite past times. I like to stand and watch him doing this, waiting patiently, surveying the undergrowth, until he spots a fury tail and then off he goes like a shot!
He’s never caught one thank goodness, well only a dead one 🤦♀️, but he’s getting very close. It’s the only time he barks on his walks, and if I hear him I know he’ll be at the base of a tree, looking upwards, annoyed that he’s missed one yet again!
Last Monday, I told you that he’d had a bit of a bad week, getting caught in barbed wire and running off into the woods from the cottage on his own. Well this past week has been totally the opposite thank goodness, he’s been as good as gold.
Looking back, we wonder if the barbed wire incident had spooked him a bit. He was gone a long time and when he managed to get back to me, he was very shaken. Who knows? If only they could talk!
Another theory is that he’s becoming to get more adventurous, and challenging us, because he’s at the teenager stage. He’ll be two in April and I remember our previous dogs going through a similar stage at the same age.
Anyway, all has been much better and he’s stayed much closer ……. perhaps the ‘roast pork treats’ may have contributed though! 😂🐶🖤👍
