Easter Sunday started off much like any other morning with the ritual dog walk. On arrival at the recreation ground I did my normal visual checks to ensure there were no little dogs around for Marley to terrorise or children with footballs.
In the distance I could see some 'friendly' dog
owners so I let the dogs off lead. Marley headed across the field to
meet his chums but quickly changed course and headed for the pavilion, I
noticed with dismay someone sat on the steps repairing a remote control
helicopter. Marley saw someone new to play with!! It was only a matter
of seconds before he had got hold of the helicopter's battery pack and
was bounding around encouraging the owner to take chase.
I ran across
the field and was advised to recover said object from dogs mouth. I
politely explained that although this seemed a good idea in reality it
was not that easy. I did manage to recover the battery pack but not in
time to save it. This little incident cost me £50.....
