MASTERING THE DOWNWARD DOG (aged 11 and a half months)
Everyone keeps talking about the importance of building positive habits during this strange and uncertain time. I am now on furlough leave, so with the absence of a working structure, Bertie and I have had to build our own little routine.
We've got our alfresco coffee with Bar from next door, our afternoon walk with Gretel, and our daily YouTube yoga class. When I started the yoga, Bertie failed to hide his boredom by staring listlessly at me, but after a few days he got involved! Now at every available opportunity throughout the day Bertie lifts his hips in the air, bows his head and positions himself in a near-perfect downward dog. It is very funny and very sweet.
