Marcus has always agreed with the sentiment that your behaviour and attitude towards animals / pets show the world something about your true character.
But over the years whilst Agata and Marcus have grown to love, cherish and cuddle Cats, we never developed the same affection for Dogs.
It's the Saliva!
Marcus rationalises his tepid association to Dogs on the basis of growing up with friends whose dogs were intent on slobbering all over him, in a most un-hygienic manner.
Agata says she just never grew up with Dogs.
So this week all that is changing because we are in charge of the wonderful Dax. She does not slobber but what she does do is show enthusiasm, a great warm character and a lot of energy
Every morning Dax is treated to a long walk. Upto 5Km.
We say hello to the Sheep
And to the chickens and bees too
There is abundant beautiful countryside
And we are reconnecting with this great animal who has redeemed our connection to the canine breed like never before.
Tomorrow we drive to the mountains for a long hike. Dax is coming too.
