After 24 hours of non-stop rain, it actually DID stop at 10am this morning. Phew. I had arranged to meet up with my friends at The Cheesewring Pub (the highest pub in Cornwall) in Minions, and I took Zac along for a little outing. He loves going there because he knows that a handful of Spillers Shapes comes his way every time! Sure enough, he showed an unusual turn of speed once he was out of the car and was waiting at the door for us to catch up and let him in. He then sat in 'his' corner by our usual table and stared at the barman - and stared - and stared. So when our drinks were brought to us, a handful of dog-biscuits were placed on the table. Yessssss!
Are you getting the impression that Zac's mobility has improved? He had his 1st injection last Tuesday and he has shown small improvements each day since then. It looks as though this treatment could be the one to help him long-term.
When we came out of the pub after our very good lunch, we found ourselves face to face with this rather impressive pair of horns! Actually she was several yards away (thank goodness) and I used the camera zoom to get this portrait.
The sound of many hooves trotting down the road made me turn to get this next photo; all the Banded Galloways were being moved from a very sodden part of the Moor to fresh grazing on higher ground.
Even the hard surfaced track held plenty of water.
The wild-eyed look because there were 2 collies running free behind us and I had told him to stay by me. He was so tempted to join them.
It felt so good to get out in the fresh air and sunshine after our enforced confinement.
I'm ready for a few more days like that! So is Zac!
