Cassidy was being a Miss Goody Two-Shoes sitting all nicely. When J's car seat is in the car she adores sitting in that, then she can just about see out of the windows, but today it was in the boot. She did grumble a bit about that, but soon settled down to enjoy the ride (minus a view!). Looks, she's got a little car harness too. I think she'll soon grow out of it, so anyone who is about Cassidy's size and would like a car harness, let us know and you can have it once she needs the next size up.
When we got to Nightingale Wood, pa was being annoying and he clipped Cassidy onto my lead, so I had a crocodale beside me no matter which way I tried to go!
I know these photos are a bit blurry, but we were moving pretty fast! See, she's lining up for a crocodale attack here!
I asked pa to take pity on me and he did. But he went one huge step better than that! Now I was never allowed off lead by my previous owner. A lot of people say Airedales are very unreliable off lead, so maybe the breeder told her that. Ma and pa let Oscar off from being a young whippersnapper, and he was generally a very good boy. As Nightingale Wood was quiet and is a safe place, pa said I could try going off lead! Ma was nervous, but pa said he reckoned I trusted them enough now not to disappear.
This is me first going off. It's really not representative of how well I did. Yes, I ran off this first time, but when I realised ma and pa were calling me to give me cuddles and liver treats and that I could then go and explore again I did really well and had about 20 minutes off lead. How fabulous is that?!
More blurry photos because I was running up and down like I was the puppy. I was so, so happy, and ma and pa said it was lovely to watch me having so much fun.
The young miss stayed on her lead today as ma and pa wanted to concentrate on me, plus you've heard about her (lack of) recall at puppy class. She is improving lots though, so hopefully in the new year, we'll both be able to romp with gay abandon!
We came home and had a snooze and some food, then it was time to get ready for Butchy & Snickers' ice skating party! Gosh, we're going to sleep well tomorrow!
Cassidy is wearing her very pink padded princess coat. I have to admit that she does look rather sweet.
I took my hat off while we waited for Air Ruby as I wanted to feel the benefit of wearing it once I was in chilly climes.
