Perdita is a hardly a vicar. But she does have a new dog collar. It comes from Tierisch, which is a rather charming of collar company in Germany, which makes smart dog collars to order. Good for Bavaria, I say.
The new collar is with ducks. Since she is a gun dog. She seems to like it.
Her behaviour has been variable. She is getting pretty adept at high jump, always waits until she told that it is OK to eat from her bowl, and generally sits and waits when told. But when she sees a bird to chase in the park, she generally takes the view – on a scissors, paper, stone sort of a basis – that chasing beats obedience any day of the week. We are working on that.
