We are gradually coming out of our winter hibernation and two weeks of pet sitting on The Roseland in Cornwall has been a wonderful way to slowly "wake up" and enjoy being with one of our favourite furry chums.
We are all enjoying being outside more and after 5 years of caring for our little pal - we have finally made progress with her ability to listen, focus and follow commands! She has always been a delight to be with, but her excitable behaviour tends to get out of control...perhaps she is calming down as she gets older or maybe we are more relaxed around her. We have certainly felt our bond with her has strengthened over the last two weeks and in turn she is eager to please. She can now have time off her lead and is thoroughly enjoying beach play time, with excellent recall.
We had almost given up on the idea that Mabel could enjoy such freedom, so it is a joy to us all!
We do hope that she will continue with her Mum, but are confident that we will slip back into our new improved relationship each time we come to stay.
It has been a wonderful rejuvenating time and we'll be returning home this week feeling happy and relaxed...though sad to be leaving our beautiful companion.
We really do enjoy the simplicity of our pet sitting work - walking, cooking, reading and snuggling with furry buddies...a real dream come true for us.
Lots of love,
Kay and Sime
