So Andrew and I have been looking after my family's dog Trixi this week because they are on holiday in Amsterdam.
We decided that taking both dogs for a really long walk would tire them out and make them a little easier to look after. The two of them want to play together but end up fighting because they both have different ideas about how to play. Trixi wants to chase but Humphrey wants to bounce all over her and Trixi ends up getting very very fed up!
The weather was gorgeous. The sun was out and I was able to walk around without even a cardigan! The views around Crawfordsburn are beautiful, especially when the sun is shining.
Trixi is the first dog I have ever met who doesn't like going for a walk... You literally have to drag her round the block! But when you take her to the beach she is like a different dog, running, playing and rolling around! It was so nice to see her enjoying having a long walk.
Humphrey will walk anywhere, he loves it. He really enjoyed the beach, his favourite thing was finding feathers and running away with them!
Taking the dogs for a long walk really paid off because the two of them slept for the rest of the evening and went to bed so easily!
