Little Monkey loves to roam free along the Green Belt. As you all saw in recent posts: Vixen; Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud; The Creature from the Black Lagoon etc.
She likes to track interesting scents and paddle in the stream.
It is wonderful to meander in the cool shade and reflect upon life.
Alas no more!
There have been too many incidents of dogs biting people or other animals. So now all dogs have to be on the lead or pay a heavy fine if caught off-lead.
Sadly a few irresponsible owners have ruined the Green Belt for all of us.
As you all know LM is reactive with other dogs, so we need plenty of space and for the other dogs to be well balanced and understanding with LM. Mostly the Green Belt dogs were like this.
There are still a few other areas where you are allowed to have your dog off-lead (who knows for how long) but I do not go there as I don’t feel safe. People have been attacked – by other people.
There are no dog parks here.
But I am glad Little Monkey had that one last walk in Freedom.
Just look at that happy little face!
