|Lola, you want your ball?|
In other news, we're going to be very, very busy this weekend. My town's rhythm and blues festival is on this weekend. The camp ground is the rugby fields at the top of my park; there will be more than twice as many people lingering and listening to music at certain times of day in certain areas in town; and there are some festival-y entertainments going on in the sports centre carpark nearby.
So, basically, we are going to be taking the opportunity to stand very far away from a very large number of people, for very short periods of time throughout each day (I'm thinking ten-fifteen minute sessions, every two hours, with fetch/exercise in between). I have high value food primed and ready, including hot dogs, ham, cheese, freeze dried liver and kipper, and I also have some chicken to cook up and prepare.
I'm not going to push Lola too much this weekend - I'm going to try and stay quite far away from crowds, so that Lola notices the people but doesn't get too stressed. We'll see, though - if she isn't bothered at all, we can slowly decrease the space between us and the people over the weekend.
