Meeting Rosie, Big Walks and the Pub

My new friend Rosie….. So it is a New Year and the excitement of Xmas is nearly over. I’ve had my first walks with my human pack but this day is special. I get to meet a grown up dog called Rosie AND go for a walk with her.

First she comes to my house and to be fair I was not too sure at first and did my best to give a barky growl to tell my humans that I would protect them come what may – but really I am a bit scared and back off to the safety of the stairs behind Tim’s legs. I needn’t worry though as Rosie  seems very calm and doesn’t seem to want to attack anyone or steal my food bowl or do anything really except sit quietly by her humans.After a while I think I can poke my nose out and give her a little sniff. I takes a minute or two but soon I think I should run into the garden and I secretly hope she will follow. She comes out when she is sent ( she is ssooooo obedient) and lets me sniff while she stands there.

Soon I am inviting her to run around the bushes and  I am able to chase her. I think I am very fierce with my excited barking because after a while she  runs back to her humans for a sit down. After a little while of playing around she takes my favourite spot on the second step of the stairs and I have to lie on the first step and try to get my nose as close to her as I can. I think she is great – especially as she seems to know exactly what her humans are talking about and  what they want her to do.

I am going to try and copy her. She is a bit like my mum in a way and she used to show me things to do as well.

Then  the exciting bit when we go out in the car for a walk to some gardens and a beach and some woods. Unlike the cold, windy day of the first walk on a beach, today is quite sunny and warm and soon I am able to run free off the lead with my new friend. She seems to be able to go a long way from her humans very quickly and I am not happy to leave my humans in case they get lost so I let her go and look in all those dark bushes and only chase her tail when she comes closer.

My humans play a great game with me where they split up and one calls me and I run as fast as I can to them. When I sit I get a treat and then the other one calls me and I dash over to them. Rosie is very good at walking with her humans when they tell her to but she is a bit daft because she doesn’t get treats. To be honest my guys don’t always give me a treat although they tell me how clever I am and give me big strokes which is almost as good.

After a very long walk on the beach and in the woods I need a bit of a carry. Thankfully Tim doesn’t pick me up until Rosie has gone on her longer walk so she won’t know that I needed a carry. Then we all met up with the human puppy Abbie and her mum and dad at the pub. They had some stuff to eat but ,to be honest, I just needed a big sleep on Marilyn’s lap. P1020766

I was lucky.  Poor Rosie was left in the car! I’ll have to tell her how comfortable this pub sofa is. If I behave myself perhaps they will want to take me again.
