. . . although sadly there are no big bores in 2012 (not on the River Severn anyway!!)
One of the best exercises of the training session involved sitting-up Nénu about 20m from the water's edge amongst a lot of large fallen trees and vegetation previously washed down by the river when in SERIOUS flood (about three weeks ago!) The exercise involved sending her on a "go-back" with a jump over a large fallen tree, down through the willow scrub to a "blind" (thrown by someone else,) in the river, then returning the same way. She thoroughly enjoyed this and with variations we did it quite a few times. As all this took place at the end of a long trainng session even Nénu was tired by the time we stopped (I was tired a long time before that!!) As usual, I find it impossible to work a dog and take photos hence the photo of the venue and not the dog!
