Last night Sparky frightened the living cr@p out of me. He's been very good (training wise) & I thought I had recall sorted with him - he's good when I call him in the house & in the park.
Clearly I was wrong.
Last night I went out the front to put water in my car & Sparks as allways comes to the front door & I shut the porch door so he can still see me but isnt loose, then Mark came out to me & Sparky followed, then walked to the back of my car - I called he & he legged it accross the road! I was still calling hiom but he could see people in the distance & was having none of it - he went across 2 roads (not main ones & no cars fortunatly!!) & when he got to the people luckily they could see me running along behind & caught hold of his collar.
My poor heart was almost out of my chest with fear as there are some assh*les that like to rally cars round my estate & have almost hit kids - I could just imagine one coming round the corner & Sparks wouldnt have had a chance.
When I got hold of him I didnt know whether to yell at him or kiss him! (so I took him back in & ignored him for a while which he didnt like at all!)
