Wonderful time for woodland pack runs as us humans walk. I'm delighted to learn anytime during the next fortnight we can all walk with J's Mum & her dogs - she's dog sitting - so not only does she have her lovely hound but she has four lovely dogs to walk. All which in their own way I'm hoping will bring much vital growth of confidence to our wee pup. Socialising skills can be experienced as she runs with the pack -experienced in an all natural environment as opposed to a 'class' situation in the Puppy Training Class.
We're all very excited to accept such a lovely invitation :)
Walk no.1: Introductions. We arrived at the meadow, wondering how Twizel would be welcomed - if she'd be accepted to run with them. Knowing only Flossie it could be a little tricky as even with Flossie by her side, even with Flossie accepting her they're both still outnumbered! Fortunately, Twizel was welcomed, after a few sniffs, there was much more important things to be done than check out the new little ginger thing!! So off they all ran, bounding & slinking. The lurchers have such an elegant gorgeous walk, the little Bedlingtons so rigid in comparison. All of them look so graceful together, so natural running through the woodland, bounding across the meadow chasing the hint of a scent .
Twizel joined in, at times eagerly wanting the biggest hound to acknowledge her, chase her & accept her - ha of course only until she did then Twizel yelped & fled in absolute terror!! What joys & what fun. The lurchers must seem so very H U G E to Twizel, she certainly looks so small in comparison & could walk right under their tummies.
After our walk we all retreated back to the house to enjoy more socialising & coffee! They all settled down really well back home, finding respectively their little comfy places to rest, sprawl out, curl up to sleep.
Delighted all seems soo good soo far.
