FRIDAY NIGHT DOG BLOG: RAIN AGAIN April 12, 2014Posted by wmmbb in DOG BLOG -.
The rain does not seem to be going away. Of course, it is wise to be careful when wishing the rain away. However, Dexter and Hannah are not getting out as much as they would.
Yesterday, I went out regardless. I think Hannah thought this strange and I wondered about the wisdom, especially when there were flashes of lightning in the sky. We walked up the track and then turned around and came back.
There was a report of one dog going missing in the heavy downpour we had – hopefully he is now back home. Dexter is not as active as he once was. Hannah was never inclined to head for freedom. I can trust her to be let off. However, there is a need for caution in doing so. Her enthusiasm could create problems. The issue of duty of care and negligence arises. Somewhat unlike the fossil fuel producers, who seemingly as they wilfully destroy the ecosystem are above and beyond the rule of law. So it is to see Archbishop Tutu leading a stand against them.
Let me be grateful for the rain and the ordered nature of our existence local level if only for the moment, and not forgetting our larger shared responsibility.
