Thank you all for your very supportive replies. It's just life of course. The inevitable happening. Just off to attempt a short walk out - don't hold your breath! If that fails I'll take her to the woods again. We both like that.
Yay! Having a good day today. We walked to the field and did a triangular walk on a couple of footpaths that make for a short circular walk. "We" even did a bit of running! The SBD was quite tired when we got back but is currently chewing a chew next to me. Onwards and - well who knows?
