dog walk
image
Off we go,
striding out ...
image
... up the hill from
the Four Paws site ...
image
... and down again to the village,
then we go across to fields ...
image
... where we emerge, en masse. But well trained dogs
are no problem, even in a large group
image
There is a whole crowd of us,
a-jostling for space ...
image
... until we spread out!
Dogs and people are everywhere!!
image
Let's take a closer look: “There is gold here, somewhere
— well, okay, one molecule of food will do nicely”
image
“Did you find anything?” “Hummm — never give
up is my motto. Labradors and retrievers unite!”
image
Meanwhile the ever-vigilant
spaniel has spotted something ...
image
It seems that handlers and dogs are so used
to class exercises, they are lined up ready!
image
But some dogs are thinking differently:
“Surely this is playtime?”
image
The dogs win (of course),
persuading their humans to play
image
Ah, a game of Statues or Grandma's Footsteps! The
one in front must turn and spot someone moving behind ...
image
... Oh, the lady in red must have been seen moving,
so it's her turn to be in front ...
image
... Hah! Now it's this lady in front, but it
looks like she spotted the dog behind moving, just in time!
image
Now what's going on here? This magician
clearly has charisma, and is attracting attention
image
While these two
are after a more active chase game!
image
Things are definitely moving faster
than the game of Statues now!
image
Though the magician still
gathers rapt attention
image
With all that running, the area of field covered by
humans and canines is very widespread now
image
There are huge spaces between us!
Let's take the opportunity for a closer look at the people ...
image
The humans seem a little lost!
Maybe they need the dogs to guide them ...
image
... or to help sort out
life's deepest complexities.
image
Okay, your guess is as good as mine!
Who knows what's going on here?
image
This handsome chap gets things organised
— Time for a spot of herding ...
image
The dogs round up
the humans ...
image
... with careful movements,
and keeping a close eye on all
image
And finally dogs and their own humans
are reunited ...
image
The parade back
begins ...
image
Well, nearly ... the man in the middle
is still going the wrong way!
image
At last, everyone is
going in the right direction
image
In a nice orderly fashion.
Well done to the herders.
image
We even have a nice bit of colour
co-ordination going on
image
Bringing up the rear out of the fields,
nice and calmly
image
Down the path
leading back to our site
image
Oh, this looks like a
traffic jam?
image
Yes, a total stand-still.
What's the problem?
image
It's a stile. And this dog looks confused!
“Do I need to jump over, Owner?”
image
But the magician shows him a better
way through. Underneath!
image
One by one,
successfully past the stile ...
image
Even if just a touch muddy
from the exertions!
image
Back down the road to complete
a lovely, trouble-free group walk

With our thanks, to Liz, Lorraine and John for taking photos of the day.
