Run Dusty Run!

This week we had the okay from lovely vet to let Dusty have some off leash exercise, just a few minutes at first. Those little muscles have a lot of catching up to do!

He’s been pottering round the garden and doing an hour a day on leash, but it’s not the same as running free.

Pottering

More pottering


Before he goes off, he has to warm up, so I walked him down to the rugby fields as his warm up and met husband and oldest son Rob down there. I wanted back up in the shape of someone who can run in case I let him off and he just took off! I didn’t think to take my camera, but luckily Rob did and he got some great shots.

So Happy!


Almost seven months since he was off the lead.

No lead!



As soon as I unhooked him, he let out the happiest bark I’ve ever heard. I haven’t been able to stop smiling since!

Great Day!

    1. Thank you, Joanna. It's really something special to see him running free. Next step will be to take him and Poppy out together, but the vet said to wait 2 or 3 weeks for that :-) xx
