When the weather's really horrible and wet we tend to walk the dogs on their leads on a road walk. When we walk them off lead we tend to go to heathland or forest and recently everywhere has been so, I can't even say muddy, just that there are little lakes everywhere, sometimes it's hard to go round them or through them.
But as we've not had more than a couple of showers over the last few days we decided to head off to our local heathland.
We saw one other person and their dog and a couple of lads on bikes. We are always being asked if we are professional dogwalkers because of the amount of dogs we have, today was no exception! People can't believe we have seven dogs! I suppose it is quite unusual, it just seems normal to us!
The reason I love going here is that you can go so many different ways and you never seem to take the same trail twice. We started off on a trial we know, we headed through a gate which was just before the trail we took last time as there were some grazing cows we wanted to avoid and we ended up on another trail that we've never been before. I love discovering all the different ways we can go.
It was still pretty muddy in places
Malc has just taken Callum to the dentist, I think braces are going to be needed. There has been talk of them before but the dentist won't recommend them until the age of twelve or thirteen, as he's that age now I think the time has come. I don't think Callum's very happy about it but there we go!
Then Malcs picking Eden up as she has Chamber Choir after school.
Hopefully we'll get a quiet night, there are no activities going on, nobody scheduled to call, so we'll shut up shop and relax!
The weather is meant to be warm and dry over the weekend so I really hope to get on some more nice dog walks. Lead walks are OK but they just don't tire the dogs out the same. At the moment they are all asleep, It's so peaceful, just their snoring to be heard!
Hope you're all enjoying dry weather too.
