As assorted people keep saying to me: 'isn't she doing well?'
You will note that Brythen is on the lead. This is because Brythen after several weeks of being a Very Good Dog, was a Bad Dog several times running, culminating in the occasion when he pulled the lead out of my hand a few days ago while road walking, and only came back after
a) I'd convinced myself that he'd tied himself to a tree somewhere deep in the woods and would never be seen again.
b) I'd spent ages rummaging for him through a very overgrown and steep field full of a giant badger set (with many, many holes) and fallen into a hole and cut my leg. And there was an owl.
