This week is short and sweet as we needed to reserve Hectors energy for up-coming events and recover from the previous week. I know we are not meeting Roy Keane for another 10 days but last week was exceptionally busy. Hector was neutered on Wednesday, then we met up with Sonia O'Sullivan on Friday and finally we went to the Girls Brigade display on Friday evening where he met loads of people and the lovely Joanna Sargent. This was a lot for any young dog to do especially having being neutered so it was definitely a week for chilling this week. Hector most certainly agreed with this and got loads of rest.
Hector: I know it was a really busy week and that surgery did hurt a little but I was not that tired, why do mummies always think we are tired!!! They are always telling us to go to bed and get some rest, I just wanted to play with my friend Nikita and Michele would not let me because she was afraid I would burst my stitches or get too tired, ahh mothers!!!!
Joanna and Hector 'Best Friends Forever.'
Well, here is the lovely Joanna Sargent that we met at the end of year Girls Brigade Display last week. Her mum got in touch with me last week and gave her permission to allow me put Joannas photo up here on the blog. Thank you so much.
It was lovely to meet someone that was so enthusiastic about dogs. I am not sure which of the 2 felt more privileged to be in the others company but Hector definitely felt like he had died and gone to heaven because Joanna was so adorably loving to him!!!
Hector: Yeah man she is so cool!!!
This is the pond that Hector decided to try and become more familiar with!!!
Well, the only mad thing that happened this week was on Saturday, I thought I would bring Hector for a nice free run in St Annes Park, just to have some fun and burn off a bit of energy in a nice way. Anyway, just as we were heading back towards the car to go home we met up with a lovely springer spaniel called "Molly". She was great fun to run and play with. That is until we came through the trees and arrived at the pond. Hector and Molly were running at full speed and Molly, who is obviously a bit older and a bit more clued in, stopped dead right at the edge of the pond but our muppet, Hector, just kept going and with a big splash, ended up in the pond. Boy did he get a fright. He swiftly turned around and swam back to the edge but on his first attempt to get out he fell back in. I was sure for a moment that I was going to have to climb in and hoosh him out myself. Fortunately, he has a better spring in him than I thought and with one final effort he leapt out with a little help from me on the side. As you can imagine he was fairly filthy so it was straight home for a wash. I think he has learnt a lesson, well, I hope he has.
Hector: It was a bit of a shock falling into that water but it was a bigger shock when I got home and Michele proceeded to splash and wash me with buckets of water!!
Check in next week for more adventures of Hector........ ciao
