Yesterday morning at about 9am I was walking Zimba in a local area that was a disused quarry that's now been turned into a nature reserve and fishing area. It's lovely and spacious and fully enclosed so obviously attracts a lot of dog walkers. We were almost at the end of the walk when I saw a man with a lab and springer offlead coming towards us. I called Zimba back and asked if his dogs were ok with a bouncy young dog and he said fine. Then as we met him on the path he said 'I forgot this one's in season', the lab. So then I had a 43kg adolsecent, hormone charged Ridgeback to get off the lab. It was ok and he did apologise, but what was he thinking Maybe he assumed he wouldn't be entire?
