My husband went on a walk alone as I was not up to it - this is true story! As he got out of the car a farm dog came and sat next to him as he adjusted his walking boots. Mark then set off on his walk with the said dog following him. After about 2 miles he tried to shoo it away thinking it would get lost. After 5 miles, said dog still followed, stopping when Mark did, sitting when Mark did, admiring the view when he did. At lunch time, Mark offered dog a bit of biscuit but doggie declined but seemed to be enjoying the view. 8 miles later just as Mark was approaching the car, the lovely doggie gave a little bark, shook his head and headed away from him back to the farm building. Isn't that the lovelies thing to have happened to him.
