As promised

As promised, the dogs have been repaid for yesterday’s patience and we have all been out in the bay. This is how Orkney was looking this morning

P3150015thbNell had much fun.

She ran and she ran and she ran.

Her recall is much improved and we successfully stopped her from chasing birds. The garlic sausage rewards helped a lot, I think. The other two think it’s great that they get treats when Nell is good. “Sausage for old rope”, says Griff.
