The, now, normal COVID-19 local park walk (below) was aborted yesterday.
On the Parrs Park through road, near the school classrooms, Alfie just flat out refused to go any further. All four paws locked up, legs scrabbling into reverse, 180 degree turn, tail down, ears back ‘out of here’ mode. A second attempt, same result
The park was really quiet, nothing different to the last decade we’ve done this walk (albeit usually as part of a much longer one) other than a rather ominous cloud overhead. I wonder if he heard thunder (I didn’t) but whatever, today it was back to normal!
