A very important item this ball. Tess is not a great one for toys, but this ball is an essential. If we go to a beach or somewhere where there is an area of flattish grassland, we get into terrible trouble if we don’t have the ball ready.
When she was a puppy, a black labrador picked up her ball, only to be playful, and she has never forgiven black dogs or labradors ever since. It’s as if they are all held responsible and are all seen as potential ball thieves. Still that was only 11 years ago, so I guess there’s still time for her to forgive.
This shot was taken near Torridon village on Scotland’s North West coast. A truly spectacular area.
