Following the vet’s advice I am keeping Sparky’s country walks to a minimum.
I had to mail a parcel at the “local” “Post Office”. Our local Post Office has been closed because it was no longer profitable, so the nearest “local” facility is now around 20-25 minutes’ walk away. It is a convenience (i.e. 10% more expensive) store with limited postal facilities. On our return we tried a previously undiscovered path, avoiding the dangerous footpath referred to in an earlier post.
We took an early walk before the temperature got too excessive using the random card method. In the evening, around 8pm, when it began to cool down, we went to play ball locally and then home via the local shop.
With expected temperatures around 30°c today, we took a short walk before 8:am to play ball amongst the trees and return home through a local wooded footpath.
