Mavis loves the freedom of being off the lead and is good at recall now, it only took us most of her little life to perfect the distance commands. She was never a quick learner.
Unfortunately Suky mostly has to stay on her lead now, being completely deaf means that if something catches her attention and she dashes off to have a look, we have no means of shouting her back and her short-sightedness means she loses track of us very quickly. In fact I've noticed that she now gets a sense of security from feeling one of us on the other end of her lead.
All the while Suky was glancing into the distance for that first sighting of Dad and Mavis coming back.
Then it was back into the car for the five minute drive home and to settle down in their beds for an evening of snoozing and watching Dad closely for any signs of snacks being forthcoming.
