On Thursday 27 April 2017 (the 2nd anniversary of Lucky's death - a
special dog with a working attitude) we revisited The Ladybower
Reservoir. This was a place Lucky visited with Disney on her last
holiday in September 2013.
While there Disney
decided to get in touch with his inner puppy (he's 11 1/2 years). He had
a little sing and ran in and out of the water, sticking his head under
the water retrieving things. Hasn't bothered swimming for a while.
I towel dried Disney in the car park he got hold of his lead and
obviously wanted me to go with him. I let him lead me and after walking a
little way he slowed down, got in a queue behind a group of 4, sat down
in line and dropped his lead. He had queued up for an ice cream. After a
few 'ooos and ahhs' the girl offered him a free ice cream. He politely
licked it and shared it with Rosie and Button.
know it's a funny little story but considering he hadn't been there in 3
1/2 years, he couldn't see the opening in the wall (selling coffees
etc), nobody had mentioned ice cream or was eating one, had he
remembered having one back in 2013!!!! I like to think he did. Really
wish I had a video of it. If you keep your eyes open you may see him
lead me to the sausage roll table at training.
