We walked at Slufters Pond, there were a lot of ponies about when we left the cars and son they all followed us down to the after group appeared over the hill and soon it waspretty crowded. they were still coming and going when we went back an hour later. We had a very pleasnt walk stopping for a while to rest under a shady tree.

Wednesday is school day.

On Wednesdays Raffles and Missy go to school.
Recently a challenge was issued on one of the Flickr groups to get your dog to retrieve an unusual object.
Missy retrieved a duster but Raffles wasn't interested but today we took the duster and the brush to school because Raffles is a good boy at school he retrieved both proudly.
The photos are not brilliant but he wanted to share them with you :o)

Walking from Canadian Cross

After a beautiful sunny day yesterday, today is cool and overcast. We took the dogs for a Walk at Canadian Cross.. We went down through the enclosure and then followed Highland Water for a short way, before coming up to the pond. After Missy had a swim we went back into the enclosure where there is a very swampy pond. Whilst John walked on with the dogs i slipped down to see the water lilies before we returned to the car.
