+Rose_Thorn Posted July 11, 2006 Share Posted July 11, 2006 I really enjoy going for walks with my dog and looking for caches at the same time. Having a dog with you is a great disguise when you are hunting for a cache - no-one looks on you suspiciously if you're poking around in bushes because they assume you're looking for your dog's toy or whatever. Likewise, you can pick up a small dog and cover up the cache on your lap when muggles come along! In addition, you feel safer in remote or dark places with a cannine companion. However, my mad Lakeland Terror, whilst a good companion, is also a complete pain when it comes to opening up the box. If it has anything remotely like a soft toy in it, she goes mad trying to claim it as hers. If I take too long signing the log etc, she starts barking hysterically and gives away my location! Also, if I have to enter a field with cows/heifers/bullocks in it, she acts like a magnet and they all come running over to see what she is! And as for taking her in a rowing boat to try and find St Herbert's island cache, that was a disaster! She barked and yapped and tried to get into the lake all the time, and bit my hands as I tried to stop her. At one point she leapt in and I was afraid she would get pulled under by the current or something. You'd have probably heard my curses from the lakeshore! So, what about your caching mutt? Boon or bane? She's so cute though, eh? Quote Link to comment
