With some warmer weather, today was the first opportunity to introduce Rocco to the real countryside – up to now, all his walks with us have been in “dog friendly” country parks.
He did seem a bit confused at first with all these unfamiliar paths, but soon settled down to his normal exuberance:
This walk has a four stiles with no provision for easy dog access. He managed to wriggle under one of them, but couldn’t be persuaded to jump the others (despite being more than capable), so I had to lift him over them. He is a very heavy dog!
