Took Duke to Tavistock shopping again, to practice walking past on-lead dogs politely. This went pretty well. As he also had two offlead walks today , he is now flat out. The morning walk was a good hour and a half involving meeting a lot of other dogs (mostly very politely, though he did leap on a Jack Russell that ran up to him. No harm done, but I would have preferred that not to happen as I suspect it helps maintain the habit :-/).
No definite home offers yet. We have now had three enquiries about him, but none of them have gone anywhere :-(
While we were in Tav. we bought AWESOME CHEESE, meat and veg. I thought about buying a jumper from a friendly shop that invited Duke in to help me look at jumpers, but after much agonising, decided not to .
The fire is on for the first time this autumn, and obviously Perl is taking up most of the space in front of it...
