This shows where we walk and meet the ravens
The yellow and pink squiggly lines are two walks we take. The yellow one is the one we usually do. The squigglyness indicates how Madame visits her several important sniffing check-points!
We stop several times to feed the ravens, and you can see where they come from.

May 6th - Day of the General Elections in the UK

Another grey morning, feeling mild-ish and very damp. In fact, there was quite a drizzle.
We left the house at 6.45 a.m. and went into Llandaff Fields. The reason was that I wanted to check if the ravens still keep the ravens field under observation - and I wanted to see how well Miss Sophie did her exercises with other dogs present.

In the first field, we met Karen and Bas. Sophie was at first not fussed by Bas, and loved greeting Karen. 
Sadly, I made a huge mistake. 
I let go of the 5 yard long trailing lead when Sophie was greeting Karen. I've let Miss Sophie go on the trailing lead for a week now. I did not think there'd be any problem.

... and then Miss Sophie took off.

She was after squirrels. She rushed into Pontcanna Fields, no commands to come back penetrated her mind. 
Karen and I - and Bas! - rushed after her, all the way down the huge playing fields, across into the even bigger part. 

There, Miss Sophie saw a group of people with two dogs. 

She changed course and rushed up to them. They were kind enough to get her lead, so Miss Sophie was finally back under my control.

So - no ravens!
