Last week we finally got the harness on Sammie. We’ve tried before but she wasn’t impressed. This time, Stephen snuck up on her while she was watching me through the window, and popped it on her before she realised what was happening.
She’s been complaining loudly that we’ve both been working in the garden and have left her on her own so we were keen to let her out if only for ten minutes or so.
She was a bit skittish and very unsure of herself but she did have a good explore before I took her back in. She was crouched right down while walking. We’ve taken her out again a couple of times since and she was a lot more confident. She’s walking upright more now, although she still lies down after a few steps each time.
I took a short video of her on her first outing.
As you can see, the garden is very much a work in progress at the moment, which is why we’re spending so much time outside. Sammie sits in the window watching us with a sad look on her face. We give her lots of love and attention when we finish for the day to make up for abandoning her though.
