.and now for something completely different......

Forager and Jarousek were invited to attend the "Safety on Dartmoor" awarenss day at the weekend, on behalf of and they had a fantastic day, meeting and greeting hundreds of visitors as well as meeting the various search and rescue and emergency services that were attending the day with them.

As a reward for being such ambassadors for the breed, they then had a trip to Mothecombe beach in south Devon in the week, where Jarousek let me down by going off after seagulls and I had to wade across the estuary to retrieve him !!!!!

Jaras' new talent

Jarousek never fais to amaze and amuse us with his talents.......he went tracking at the weekend and did a cracking three quarters of a mile long line, 40 minutes cold. So far his longest and coldest line, and he really enjoyed it. As a reward he went to the river to play with his sister "Rogue" and friends, and he had his first ever swim. he seemed to enjoy it!
