We got through the gate without incident, then Kizzie ran off and started barking fit to wake the dead. The little hedgehog rolled into a ball and pretended not to be there.
I got Kizzie's lead on and hauled her away, still barking at the top of her voice and yanking me back towards the hedgehog.
I finally walked away smelling of poo, with a dislocated shoulder and burst eardrum. All the while Murphy stood next to me like a little angel, although the occasional woof comment was passed.
We did our loop of the park ok, then Kizzie legged it back to the hedgehog, poor little thing hadn't moved. Apart from when Kizzie thwatted him with her paw.
We met a teeny tiny 11 week old chihuahua x jack russel puppy. Stroppy little thing was barking and trying to chase Kizzie and Murphy away. Her new mum looked worried but we reasured her that the hooligans were friendly. That's not what she was worried about - she thought the chihuahua might turn out to be a stroppy bitey dog! Reassured that it was ok to let the dogs sort it out themselves, little ruby eventually calmed down and stopped trying to massacre K&M. What a trooper, and a lucky little dog whose humans want to do what's best for her. I hope we meet her again.
After the excitement we strolled back to the park gate, the hedgehog had disappeared, and all was well. Out of the corner of my eye I saw Murphy gobbling something. Nooooooo! I think it was cat poop. I guess we will be seeing that again. I still haven't got the stain off the carpet from the other day when he up-chucked everything he had eaten for the past three days! I was going to slope off for a few days in September for a rest and re-charge, but I guess I may need the money to pay for a new carpet. This one will be mud coloured.
How much to buy my babies? Hahaha you couldn't afford them ;)
