At last the winter sun shone and myself, Cap’n Jack and (the very colourblind) Miss Pink took to the hills. Miss Blonde was left at home, young Lottie being too young to cope with tasks greater than sneaking onto the setee and savaging poor innocent rottweilers. Was it too big a hill for the 6th month old Miss Pink? Not really. Craig of Monievreckie’s tourist route is barely a hillwalk and tackled sensibly (keeping Miss Pink’s natural exuberance in check) is a lightweight in terms of both distance and gradient.
Cap’n Jack will now demonstrate the 3 stages of untangling and “accidentally” throttling a puppy. What is not on camera is the terrible retribution wrought upon Cap’n Jack by a severely piddled off Miss Pink.
Once Miss Pink was suitably untangled we had a chance to have a look around.
Puppy training is a constantly ongoing process so even on her day out Miss Pink must be put through her paces. Cap’n Jack would appear to have his own, quite distinctive, methods although, looking at the photos, I’m not so sure this is his primary area of expertise.
It is fair to say that young Mabel coped easily with her first excursion into the hills and Cap’n Jack…well…he managed another wee hill without the need for more than a base layer. I feel jealous…and old and cold!
I’ll leave you with a couple of photos of (the very colour-blind) Miss Pink.
