Ok, so today Robin and I went for our usual quick walk in the morning. He flipped his lid THREE times! On each occasion, jumping up and even caught my eye! He proceeded to grab at the lead and extension (horse long line rope) tugging madly and dragged me and him right into the road and causing traffic to have to stop (grudingly) to avoid running both of us over! I retreated home embarrassed and upset and thinking that I am a really useless owner and I should never have got the dog, he would be better off with someone who knew what they were doing. This evening - HE CAME!!!! Shock! It was pitch black and I could just make out his shape in the garden, he was barking madly and wagging his tail excitedly! I thought omg one of the neighbours cats or perhaps the baby wood pigeons or blackbirds! I grabbed his leash, terrified he would jump out of the garden - we would be in dreadful trouble if he did, especially in the dark! I stopped for a second and thought TREATS!!!!! Went back indoors and grabbed chicken - he likes chicken I whistled him - he CAME!!!!! straight away!!!!! He is a STAR! My Robin CAME WHEN THERE WAS SO MUCH MORE INTERESTING STUFF GOING ON! I am soooooooo proud of him!
