Crazy dog dash

Just been for a walk with a kamikaze canine. She’s small but fearless, with an irrational dislike of certain groups of people – like joggers and cyclists. She chases anything that growls, including motorbikes and large agricultural vehicles.

Usually we pre-empt these encounters by getting her on the lead, but today she spotted some sort of harvester roaring down the lane, and legged it out of the field straight into the path of four massive wheels.

I feared we could be scraping dead dog up off the road. But she survived, having seen the monster off good and proper.

Managed quite a few miles. Not bad considering I’m nearing the nadir

    Oscar takes a dim view of canines. Not dog-sitting but nice dog-owning friends sometimes take me for walkees in the country.

    I know where's she's coming from. (My politically incorrect observation of the week).
