Been very busy over the last few days, so it was good to be able to get out with the dog on the beach this evening.

I am beginning to have a bit of a problem with Tim, though. On the open space of the beach he's used to being able to run hundreds of yards away from me and with his keen sighthound vision spot where I am and be able to be back with me in no time. But over the last couple of months his eyesight has been gradually deteriorating and now when he runs a hundred yards or more away from me he can't see me and just stands there looking lost. He can't hear me shout above the sound of the sea until I walk towards him and finally manage to get him to hear me.

So this evening I actually resorted to keeping him on the lead for some of the time that we were on the beach. Strange for him, and strange for me too.

Stunning shots, as per your usual. :) I'm sorry to hear this about Tim, age isn't kind to any of us. I have all my crew trained to a variety of hand signals/signs, and have had the good fortune that all of them have kept good eyesight. Cachet is close to deaf these days, and watches my hands all the time.

Is it possible to do any training with a whistle of some type, something that could be heard over the surf?

Viv, yes, I may well have to try a whistle.

Caine, thanks. I hope his hearing doesn't go as well otherwise we're going to have a big problem. Mind you, he is selectively deaf quite often!

AF, thanks :)

mysteritmo, thanks!
