Arches

This weekend we went for a nice slow trundle along the arches. The family had come up on the Saturday and my buddy Joe was there too! I was so tired all of Saturday all I needed was a little walk on Sunday. DSC_0234It was later in the day so the sun was setting and and people must have been inside eating their Sunday dinner because we didn’t meet anyone. (Ours was still being cooked). We went across both rivers and walked past the pub, and on toward the arches.

We would have stopped at the pub but we were going home to our tea, so we stayed away.

We went past the funky waterfall thing (my person said it is called a weir and stops the river from flooding the town). I don’t particularly like being near it, it makes a horrible wooshy, crashy noise, which is really loud and scary. But we don’t linger long, so it is okay.

We get as far as they arches and they are huge! The trains go across them and I used to be a bit scared but now they aren’t too bad. I guess I go used to them. Trains are still scary though, the big rumbly metal things.

Still we go along the walk and keep walking till we get to a dog training area. My people and I used this area to teach me to be off lead. It was a nice place and I wanted to go back and have a look, but I wasn’t allowed as someone was using it and I would have distracted the other doggy there.

So instead I had a sniff around at the leaves, I found something really smelly, though I don’t know what it was it was nice. I stayed there for about 5 minutes before I wanted to carry on walking.

We trundled back home, keeping the pace nice and slow. It was only a little adventure, though it was a nice one.

Hopefully this weekend we can go on a bigger adventure!

Cheshire Show Trip

Every June my family and I travel to the Cheshire County Show, it is about 15 minutes drive away in a huge field called the Tabley Showground.

It is mainly an agricultural fair but it has food and shows and well lots of good things going on. It is a great day out for all of us doggies included. I am allowed everywhere apart from the small animal and food tents.

They think I will chase the animals … me! I don’t chase things, I might taste them a little but I wont chase them! Although I am not allowed in the food tent, my people always bring me out a special treat. a but of bacon or sausage or if I am very good a teeny bit of cheese!

Anyway when we arrived it was a bit dull and dreary we were expecting a classic British weather. My people had packed their coats (including mine), but were hoping the weather stayed nice. I can say that it was the most glorious day I have seen in a while. We started with a breakfast bacon butty, I sat under the table and nicked bits of the juicy bacony goodness. (Did I tell you bacon is great). We then had a walk around meeting dogs galore.

This is me begging for bacon

Onto the food tent. my people take it in turns going it because I have to sit outside. Still every person leaves with either a burger or hot dog and I got a little bit of each!

We watched the shire horse parade, and the children showing the goats, them people on bikes jumping over stuff and I met a lady police dog I was very fond of; we even spotted royalty from afar!

I do love this day.
