We got back home and after I took his lead off Rodders ran upstairs. While I took my wellies off he just stood at the top of the stairs crying.
I spent 5 minutes encouraging him down the stairs a step at a time - well he got himself up there and he needs to learn to come back down.
I managed to get him to talk to me before I let him in the garden, he just wanted a sniff about and a bark at the neighbours to make sure they know he is home.
I have put some lunch down for him but he seems too tired to eat anything, as I am typing he has curled up on snuggle fleece at my feet.
I think I will grab my boots and get us sorted for going to Kirsty's, he can nap in the car!
