When you just want to be left in peace to sunbathe undisturbed in the road you can:
a] Lie as flat as possible so that you look like some form of road kill at a distance [that was our first thought]
b] Masquerade as some child's abandoned fluffy toy [that was our second thought]
c] Not move a muscle and play dead, so that annoying bipeds pass by as quickly as possible.
Please meet the lovely Rita who is apparently the world's friendliest dog....except when she's sunbathing and then nothing, but nothing will make her move an inch.
I have to say Rita completely made my evening walk once we'd ascertained that she was very much alive and kicking despite appearances to the contrary.
