On Friday I came home from work and, even though it was hot, I took Rassilon for a walk down the beach. He did really well, but the sound of the waves breaking on the shore scared him a bit. He would pull away, but only as far as his leash, then he stopped pulling, so it wasn’t like he was SO scared he wanted to get right away.
We were walking along in the water, just paddling, when the waves came he got out the water, but once the noise was gone, he came straight back into the water. One day when I have a waterproof bag to put my car key in, I will take him a bit further out into the water. The reasoning behind that is, a replacement car key with built in locking remote control… $640.00.
On Saturday Rassi stayed at my mothers place while we went shopping. By the time we got home my legs were worn out and my knees were aching, so he was lucky he didn’t come with us.
On Sunday I had to go to the shops to buy something for my mother, and I took Rassilon with me. He stayed in the car while I went in to buy the item, it was nice and cool today with a hint on misty rain, so I didn’t mind leaving him in the car for a few minuets. Then when I came back I took him for a walk right round the outside of the shopping centre, even though my legs were aching. He really did well today. He walked well and didn’t jump out of his skin when a trolley came behind him, and quite a few people wanted to pat him, and he, of course, put up with all that attention and patting.
The thing is now, 2 long walks in 3 days has had it’s toll, he has taken to a place of comfort…MY BED!!
2 long walks have had their way with Rassilon.
And now, after the photo, I had lunch and a cup of coffee, then watched an episode of the Big Bang Theory, then came and wrote this piece, Rassilon HASN”T MOVED. And to be perfectly honest, I might go and join him so my legs can recover.
