    Excellent!

    Our rescue dog was a bit iffy around other dogs when we first got him, so it was a few weeks before we had the confidence to let him off the lead. He spends most of his time off the lead these days though, and is now pretty good around other dogs. We've had him going out with a dog-walker at least one day a week and that's got him much more used to being with other dogs, which has helped enormously. They like having him as he's well behaved and comes back when called - they even sometimes clip other dogs to him that aren't as well behaved, as he'll bring them back with him as he's a very strong dog.

    Betsy was great today, but if she sees a deer, she’ll be off at high speed! So we’re not there yet!

    This is Ludo out with his dog-walking buddies today - being used to control the huskies, which are gorgeous but don't have great recall:

    Have you ever seen a happier dog than the Husky on the right of the picture? They don't get to run off the lead much because of their poor recall, so I think like they having Ludo there as a control as he seems to be the only dog they have on their books that's strong enough to handle them.

    A bit damp this morning but Ludo doesn't mind that, and neither do we if we dress appropriately - so was a very nice walk in the treelines near the house, at the foot of the Pentland hills:

    Ludo does love a beach so we took him down to Gullane today so he could have a splash about:

    Sir Jock Stirrup & Boozilla, aka the Eejit & the Duchess.

    Jock is a doorspring, Boo a long haired chihuahua. No guesses as to which one has the brains.

    This little chap is my new pet. He came to say hello yesterday at the same table and again today. Today he and just got closer and closer. We got so close I’ve sent Betsy back to Greece. ‘Go back to your own country and sort the problems you’ve got back there’, I said. The satire was lost on her. She’s only a dog though.

    Amazing. Years ago we had a House Martin here that had no fear of people, I took it to be a defective gene. Needless to say, she didn't last long, I suspect the lack of fear might have extended to cats.

    Looked very young, fledgling I’d say. Hope he survives

    Listening to two very small pixies having a conversation over tea and toast in their cobweb house?

    You spotted them! Well done. A lot of people miss them y’know.

    If you were here you'd have heard them talking about how stupid humans are for ignoring all the robust science for a flat earth. Not daft those pixies

    Ludo's reaction yesterday evening when I wanted to extend our walk and he wanted to go home for his dinner:

    I have to take Betsy out first thing in the morning on days like today with a quickie under the trees in the afternoon. She really doesn’t like the heat.

    Ludo's also not a fan of the heat so he's just had 3 shortish walks today. We'd got him a paddling pool as well and I set that up for him earlier. He seemed pretty keen on it, going by this shot:
