Last night, after a lovely walk, Marcus and I were chilling out in the sitting room with Saffi and the cats. In a moment of silliness I wrapped a blanket around my head like a ghost and make a spooky growling sound, walking towards Saffi like a Zombie. She cowered and whined with her tail between her legs. I felt TERRIBLE, I’ve never seen her like that!
We chase Saffi around the house and play with her often, I had no idea she’d be genuinely frightened poor lamb. Marcus pushed me to do it again and again giving Saffi cuddles after revealing it was me under the ghostly blanket and eventually she started wagging her tail when I did it.
Lesson learnt – our puppy isn’t as ‘bomb-proof’ as I thought!
