Suki is a bit less enamoured with her Triceratops as I had hoped for. It's a bloody G2 one as well and a hard wearing toy. There's a small bear she also got that she seems to like a bit better the now.
Cake was had last night, and cake will be had later today.

Left house at 8.25am, aiming to arrive at cafe half-way to church at 8.40, have breakfast for 20 minutes, then proceed to church, arriving 9.15. (Mass is at 9.30 but with numbers limited to 100 max. due to Covid you have to arrive early to get a decent seat.)
Thirty seconds after setting off from my front door my plans were thwarted as I passed a small brown rabbit on the pavement. I stopped. It didn't want to be stroked, but didn't run away. I grabbed it and picked it up. It had wet feet from the grass, but clipped nails, which is always a blessing with rabbits. So there I am standing in the middle of a quiet residential street at 8.30 on a Sunday morning with a rabbit in my arms, wondering which door to knock on.
I tried a couple of doors that were showing life in the kitchen, but they had no idea. A couple emerged to get into their car for a drive to Brecon. They offered to put a post on a local Facebook group. Then a lady appeared looking for the rabbit, not because she knew who owned it, but because a friend had messaged her to say they'd seen a rabbit wandering around the street, and being an animal person she was curious.
I said I didn't know what to do with it and had been on my way out. She said she'd take care of it as she had no plans besides nursing a hangover, and I eagerly transferred it to her arms.
Two hours later I returned home and knocked on her door. She told me she'd found out who it belonged to. Turned out it was back a way past my house in the other direction. I now see that house has a rabbit run on its front lawn, and I can actually see the rabbit in its run from one of my upstairs windows. It had gone quite a long way on its little adventure, out of line of sight of the house where it lives.
Anyhoo, best laid plans and all that. Had to get an iced latte to go rather than a sit down outside the cafe. Didn't think I'd be standing in the street holding a rabbit for 10 minutes this morning.
Suki update - she is now getting a bit more confident in approaching other dogs, almost played with one the other day.
She has also made a human friend - a chap I used to work with, who does deliveries for one of the local takeaways. She will jump up at his legs and look for attention and doesn't bark. Was genuinely surprised when she did.
Great to see she's slowly getting better at socialising. If I am out and there are kids nearby, they all generally want to see her, so she is getting less flighty when folks want to pet her.
