A Spring walk with Alice
We've made the discovery that Charlie doesn't seem to have ever taken a proper walk before (we think he was just left to roam his previous garden) which means that not only does he not know how to walk on the lead but he also freaks when he sees another dog while outside - unfortunately, this also includes Alice! We are teaching him, but it takes a while with a 5 year old dog. So it's separate walks for the time being. They are getting on fine inside though - a few little jealous grumbles from Alice occasionally, but almost there. I think that, despite herself, she does like to have another dog around!
Anyway....back to that walk. I did take some pictures of the amazing wild violets we saw...they were everywhere in great purple clumps. But for some reason, they are taking an age to download. So I'll just post what I have, and hope to update later.
It was a beautiful walk. When we got home, Paul and Charlie had been for a good long training outing too...so both dogs were tired and happy and we could get on with our day.
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend too....xoxo
