walks on water. Or rather, stands there waiting for Rory Delap to hurl him in a biscuit.
Hi Stephen, Trezza, Ollie, Dylan and all
Just finished reading Along Came Dylan, only bought it yesterday, 2 for £7 at tesco! I feel you are being cheated there!
Anyway, why I am communicating – just had to tell you how much I thoroghly enloyed both Walking Ollie and Along Came Dylan.
Our family has been transformed by a puppy in 2005 and one would think that the same old stuff must happen to all puppy/dog owners, but not really they are all unique, as our dog has a nose for partridges – not rabbits. I can relate to what you have been through with Dylan. I can only imagine how a rescue dog has suffered. I say suffered because our pup was treated to the 5* treatment, we have few rules, but we have a fairly rigid routine and that is the grounding to a good dog. (Plus actually being there for the puppy to stop it getting into michief, replacing the table leg with one of its toys)
Ah the walks – not at the seaside, but over open fields, ditches, wooded areas, all on our doorstep! Our lab/springer cross quickly covered a field to say hello to anyone on the other side=, stranger or not. She has slowed down a bit now – unless it is a pal – the every day dog walking hardies.
I try to lose her now and again – but she’s a wily old bird and knows my habits, sometimes she has to double check by waiting at a junction, looking back to me as if to check which way to go.
Looking forward to the next installment – after all dogs live to be quite old and you’ll gather some more tales which will need to be shared!
ps My father moved in with us and is a retired Phillip! (retired due to ill health – now operates by phone instead of the pub and bookies)
