An Old Dog

One of my walks is around the Cwmoernant Reservoir in Carmarthen. As I mentioned yesterday
we often have visiting dog lodgers. One of these is an old cocker who is actually Jac's mother. She is old and really lively but unfortunately is also totally deaf. Taking her anywhere is a bit of a gamble as you can't recall her as she can't hear and can't relocate by sound. As she is by nature a flusher she runs off in to the undergrowth and disappears. She also loves swimming and will go in the any water and not come out as she cant hear the recall.

The first time this happened Alex and I spent an embarrassing 45 minutes trying to get her out of the reservoir while she swam up and down the lake with us running from one end to the other calling her to on avail. When she got to the bank where we were she just turned around and went back for another length. All this caused great amusement for the onlookers and Jac!
(It had crossed my mind that she is just putting up a great pretense in order to do what she pleases and get away with it).
