We had plans today to get the bus to the garden centre with Mojo, and walk back along the shore.
I took Sasha out for a run before we planned to leave, and had lunch when we got back. Unfortunately some seizures left me exhausted, and I ended up falling asleep. I woke up feeling like crud, with seizures as I was waking leaving me feeling really odd and with a headache.
My partner took Sasha out for another walk as I drank lots of fluids and took pain pills, and we were still planning on getting the bus to the garden centre with Mojo…but when they got back we realised school had just finished, which would mean annoyingly busy, noisy buses, and so we scrapped the idea!
Instead we hung about at home for a few hours, then decided we’d take Sasha and Mojie on a big evening hike.
We walked through the fields to the next village, and spontaneously decided to climb the 163m mountain rather than walk to the forest as we’d planned. I’m glad we followed our hearts as it was such a good walk!
For starters, Mojo walked within 6ft of a cow for the first time!
He was super reactive to cows when he was younger, and would bark even when we carried him past them at a distance. This is the first time he has walked so close past them (and he did it several times on this walk so it wasn’t a fluke!) and not only was he silent, but he was totally confident too – play bows and happy bounding!!
Walking through the village 🙂
Entering this field the D clip that connected two leads together (making one lead for Sasha) snapped, and Sasha zoomed past me – how scary is that?! We were by a main road minutes before!!
These were D clips made to be used to attach dogs’ leads to a running belt, too!Bloody lucky it snapped in this field…
The hills on this walk crippled me. Despite my cold being a couple weeks ago, my lungs are still screwed…if I move I can’t breathe haha, and I have several fits of coughing a day to the point of almost being sick. Other than that I’m fine, so it’s very annoying!
Sasha had a hair cut today, we got her back legs, tail, most her front, her ears (inside and out) and her face…she looks tooo cute now!
Mojo was so proud of himself for finding this sheep wool, and kept bounding up to Sasha to show it off XD
The style at the top of this field is STUPID narrow. None of our dogs bigger than the littles can fit through it. My partner has to lift Sasha over…I love how regal her expression is here!! 😀
Now the real climb begins
Guess who made it all the way to the top?
This little turd!!
It’s crazy because his stamina is poop, he needs carrying on a 20 minute walk usually, but he makes it to the next village and up a mountain…like wth?!
Mojo was finally starting to tire here, so he got popped into his carry bag. This meant Sasha was able to go off lead and stretch her legs.
Sashie-bum saw quite a few people on this walk – just in passing, none tried to interact with her – but she was really confident with them.
A couple climbed over a style and chose the route that took them within a few foot of us (hoping to say hello to her, but they didn’t even try when they saw her DO NOT PET lead!) and Sasha rocked a stay and focus on me. Then there were several children she paid basically no attention to, a jogger that ran close by with no warning, and some drunk adults too.
Nice job Sasha 🙂 ❤
