Muffy has been a very typical terrier today! She was having a long weekday walk with her male human. There is one area where she is allowed off lead because we can see all around. We will spot any potential stress triggers in time to put the lead back on. She is generally good with her recall. BUT, as with all terriers, she goes completely deaf, if a small furry distracts her. 

At the moment, the usually bare field is full of rapeseeds. You can still see around it and she hasn't been bothered about going into the field. Today however, she spotted a rabbit and took off into the field after it!  Over two hours later, she emerged looking in a sorry state. I don't think she had gotten herself lost because hubby said she would reappear periodically to check he was there then take off again.

I don't think we need words to explain why this poor little face with its sore patches of rubbed off fur, has been evoking lots of sympathy. Not enough to get her out of a visit to the vet though.

We are joining in the blogpaws Wordless Wednesday blog hop. Thanks for hosting


  1. I'm sure she looks much worse than how she feels, but her photo is a heart breaker. Poor baby...

  2. Looks like the adventure was more trouble than it was worth. I've got a Jack Russell. I don't trust her off leash. She's too darn quick. Hope tomorrow is a more peaceful day for you all.

  3. She's such a cutie! Poor thing. Hope she feels better.

  4. What a face! I bet she gave that bunny a run for her money!
