Arthur and I had a wonderful afternoon stroll in the sunshine this afternoon, although to be honest we didn't actually see much of the sun as we wondered off track into thick woodland.
I think Arthur enjoyed himself - his terrier instincts kicked in and he spent most of the time nose to the ground, sniffing everywhere, tail wagging furiously
In all the times I've walked Arthur he's never showed any interest in going into the stream for a paddle but today he decided he was going to give it a go, he was a bit tentative a first and kept looking back to see if I was still there. We were out for a good hour and and taking the scenic route back to the kennels also included a 5 minute walk along a busy road.
Remembering Arthur can be a bit yappy at passing cars (although last time he was as good as gold
) I was slightly apprehensive, no need
Arthur walked the route without a sideways glance at a good dozen or so cars that passed us. he was rewarded at the end with his favourite treat - very small lumps of cheese
It was then cuddle time in his kennel for 10 mins or so (Arthur does love a good cuddle) - I left him chewing on a raw hide bone tail wagging away.
