I took Nessa today for about 4 hours, she was pleased to see i was ready with a harness when i got to her kennel, i got her harnessed up etc and off we went. Nessa is a superb car dog, she jumped in and sat upright in the passenger seat and was very alert watching the world go by as i drove to my house.
She licked my face occasionally when i stopped at the traffic lights which was sweet. We arrived at my house and i introduced her to Colleen and our visiting Grandkids, Nessa was typically excited for a few minutes and calmed very quickly, she got a few bits of cooked sausage as a treat from Colleen and then saw one of our cats on the table, Nessa stood up and made no attempt to be aggressive just inquisitive.
Nessa looked like she needed a little stretch so i let her off in our back garden, she trotted around for a while and added her little signature before coming back in the house
I walked my Grandson to his saturday tutor with Nessa through the park and she kept her nose down smelling everything, we came across a few dogs and two Labs were running nearby (about 20ft away), Nessa was curious but was fine.
We then took Nessa to the Happy Valley for a longer walk and she met a few walkers who were recieved calmly and happily, Nessa even let some smaller dogs come close and have a little contact, she was great.
Nessa really enjoyed her ramble and was easy to walk with.
We met a huge Rescue Remedies gang on the way out of kennels this morning and i we saw all of them on the way back this afternoon and i could see they had all put up with the horrible weather that Nessa enjoyed with Lewis and myself today (nice to meet all of you by the way).
Nessa climbed into her nice warm kennel bed on my return and laid down relaxed, that was lovely to see.
Nessa had a good shake to get the snow off.
Nessa started to have a little run around me in the snow so i tried to run with her for a little while, suffice to say i am no Usain Bolt but she enjoyed the little jog while it lasted.
I really enjoyed Nessa's company today.
