In Disgrace…Not me!

Yesterday, was a long day, Marcela went off for an afternoon meeting, and I was left to bond with Pépe, or so I thought.

I was watching a program on Youtube, and thought Pépe was having a siesta on the sofa, that was until I had finished watching, and thought it was time he moved, otherwise he would not sleep at night, I made the mistake of giving him a chew, before checking what he had been up to.

On the sofa under him I spied something red, and there was his Halti collar, which should have been on the dining room table, yes you guessed it, he had been chewing it, and apparently knew what he was doing:

Ruined Halti

He had all but chewed off one of the securing straps, and it would no longer be safe to use, I had to send off for this, and it wasn\’t cheap, so you can imagine I was not happy…but Pépe was!

I thought about trying to get it repaired, but I would never have trusted it, and could only imagine Pépe disappearing into the distance, whilst I was left holding the lead with a Halti on the end of it, so it was back to the drawing board.
I have now decided to try him with a harness, but one with the lead attachment on the chest, not on the back, this is supposed to act in the same way as the Halti, without an pressure on the head, I again have to send off for this, and in the meantime, I have made a short lead, to have more control.
Last night, I started to organise some projects for my new workshop, now I must get on and prepare a shopping list, as we are going out today, and I want to get the supplies.
