Sometimes signs are just too small---especially for a Jack Russell!

A few weeks ago, we decided to take a trip to Tauranga. It was a beautiful Monday morning and on the way it seemed appropriate to let Perdy out for a run. U had given her a brief ‘sojourn’ down at the Onehunga Bay, where I was hoping I could ‘take the edge off’ her manic behaviour prior to travelling.
We stopped at the home of the Fig Tree CafĂ©, hoping to enjoy a nice coffee and a slice, but being Monday, it was closed. He’ll, they deserve a break eh! We settled for a takeaway coffee from another establishment and then walked along the road to a huge park, where we released Perdy so she could run and cavort to her hearts content. There were no other dogs present. Maybe the village just doesn’t have dogs. Oh well, she would have to be happy with whatever time she had and chase her ball while we sipped our coffees.
I didn’t know that Perdy had plans to embarrass me. Yes, she did have a little poop and I assumed that the other picked it up as I remembered seeing them bring a little blue bag for the obvious purpose of collecting Perdy’s poop. In the meantime, Perdy managed to manoeuvre me into a very guilty position, where unknown to me the accompanying picture was taken. I received it today from one of those who had travelled with us. Perdy---you knew that was happening! If you can’t see the picture, go to my website and check out this blog.
