Ventured into the New Forest and ended up walking from Beaulieu to Bucklers Hard. A lovely forest and water front walk.
But Millie started off the walk by being really naughty! I let her off the lead too soon and she went straight into a private horse field and promptly ran around and ate horse poo. Poor hubby tried to get her back but she was having none of it. I did manage to get her back, but by then she was in hubby's bad books
After that she ran happily through the muddy water and basically did her own thing for half an hour or so. I did get her back under control on the return journey and she was very good at Stop, Stay and Come - all of which seemed to mean nothing to her at the start!.
But oh boy was she muddy. Straight home for a long bath. She's now next door being spoilt by my neighbours who love looking after her.
Sorry MicheleE, I don't know any local dog sitters. Have you tried googling?
