Fred and Maisy's breeds are a bit of a mystery. The owners think Maisy may a Doberman cross but with what is anyone's guess. It matters not to them anyway, they are simply a pair of gorgeous mutts, a great little home guarding, rabbit hunting partnership.
About three quarters into our walk, they disappeared into the undergrowth and moments later, 'rabbit chasing' yips could be heard. I had been warned that the photoshoot may come to an abrupt end and was told they would bring themselves home later, when they had tired of the hunt or got hungry, whichever came first.
True to form, 20 minutes after we returned and had settled with a cuppa they appeared at the back door ready for dinner.
