Dog's first visit to the shore, at Rough Island about half-way between Ards and Comber. It was 09:00 but it was already quite busy with people and dogs, which meant that he was very excited and didn't quite obey commands like he usually does. Amongst the other dogs he met was "Thomas", who was also obtained from the Assisi rescue centre. Thomas enjoyed chasing stones thrown into the sea and Roy tried to understand the rules of the game but usually ran away in an arbitrary direction. Daftie.
