Having had his second jab and now being safe from all the nasties, Ozzy had his first proper walk this morning. Of course, it had to be a canal walk! We took him to the locks on the GU Northampton Arm as we knew it would be quiet, with very few people or dogs. We wanted to let him off the lead for a while, as I am a firm believer that if you let them off while they are still tiny, they won’t go far as they are afraid of loosing you – it worked with Cassie so hopefully it will work with Ozzy. He had a lovely time, and was very good, both on and off the lead. We only walked a short way as he’s still very little and easily tired. We stopped by the top lock for a little while as there was a boat about go down, just so he would see and hear the lock working. He wasn’t bothered – ignored it mostly!
Sorry that the photos aren’t up to much, he doesn’t stay still long enough to take a decent one!
The cottage at the top lock is being renovated and extended – and a superb job they are making of it too – it’s going to be lovely!
