How lovely to see @Mad Murphy
Well after increasing the CBD drops at new year to give Murhy peace of mind we have now reduced them again.
This morning we stood and talked to a couple with their dog pram and young child he was so calm he even remained calm when a group of joggers came past.
But it only takes one idiot and this morning we met two, the first was in a second group of joggers and as they approached one of them made barking sounds.. Well obviously if you talk to the dogs they talk back and Murphy barked,, my response was to tell him to stand and then add loudly, 'Murphy stop talking to idiots' which shut the barker up.
The second fool decided it would be a good idea to come silently jogging up behind us as Murphy paddled, he deliberatly left the path and crossed the beach to come right up behind us... Why??? the path the beach and the field behind us was totally empty but this guy had to divert to a direct collison course at the waterline. Murphy barked once but apart from that he was ok. Im really pleased with how this is going but I still wouldnt trust him off lead in this situation having jogging barking flapping strangers might be a bit too much for him if I didnt have him on the lead.
This may be the downside of being cute - all kinds of folks want to interact, and some of them have wrong ideas of good interaction.
You could be right I spoke to mum this morning and she said Eva my brothers RR is so daft if she hears a noise in the dark she hides! But mums taxi driver is scared witless and he is convinced shes going to eat him. Mum told him to say Boo to her. He did and Eva ran behind the chair!
