Born Free (Sennen Cove)

We decided to be brave and let Snoz off her lead in Sennen Cove; she was really good for about half an hour, staying by our sides, chasing us and not straying, she even returned when called a few times(!) Sennen was quite deserted on Saturday, despite the sunshine it was really cold and all the cafes/restaurant were mostly shut. There were a few other dogs on the beach but she mostly ignored them.

At about the 40 minute mark she suddenly realised she was not on her lead anymore and made a break for it! She ran right into a group of people and tried to engage a little boy in play (eeep!) Luckily the family also had a dog and weren't annoyed. I caught up with her and she sprang away from me; running towards the water, she didn't go too far but she let me know I was a far too slow to catch her! Eventually she went for the treat I was trying to give to her, giving me enough opportunity to grab her...She had a really great time. I love to see her running around so freely (I just wish she had more reliable recall so we could chance it more often, in less secluded places too).

Doing a dance for a treat

Sleepy Shiba after her big day! We walked a woody walk later on and saw lots of beautiful stars. It was about 11pm by the time we got home and Snoz put herself straight to bed!
