Ellie was very good overnight, again. We didn't hear from her until about 7:30 - which is quite acceptable to all concerned! The Gorse Fox went down to open up and get some eggs and bacon on. Ellie seems to have got the last for eggs and bacon and along with a pancake and some porridge, she got the day off to a good start.
Once Ellie had completed her exercises she joined us on a trip to the farm shop. She carried a little shopping basket to help with Jasper's food (which is what we had gone to get). She was very helpful, as you can imagine. Back home she solicitously watched as we prepared Jasper's lunch, then decided that she wanted to play in the garden for the rest of the time. The swing was installed and used occasionally, flower pots were relocated, then relocated again, and eventually put back where they started from. She was still enjoying the afternoon sunshine when Urban-Cub arrived to collect her.
The Gorse Fox and the Silver Vixen are now off duty and the house has returned to normal.
