Max’s First Walk

Posted in General tagged , at 3:20 pm by vicii

We took Max out for his first walk today now that he is 12 weeks old.  He was actually quite well behaved as I had been told that some dogs just sit on their bottoms and wont budge!  I think with two of us going out it helped though because I walked in front and called him when he was busy sniffing the nettles.

We walked him a little way along the canal and even took a short dip with his front paws – it was nice to see that he wasn’t afraid.  I’m really looking forward to being able to give him longer walks though when he’s older.

Local Countryside

Posted in General tagged , , at 11:32 am by vicii

After I picked by DS up from school yesterday we made the most of the dry weather (after the rain that we have had recently), popped Izzy into a baby sling and went out for a walk…. two hours later we got back home!

I hadn’t realised just how much countryside there was, quite literally, just down the road.  My DS has been out walking with my OH’s parents and their dog and one of the last walks that he went on was to the local Mere.  I had no idea where this was and so suggested that we go out and he show me.

This picture shows most of the mere just as the sun is starting to come out after the rain!

Yes, we did get caught in the rain…


I thought that the sun poking through the trees here made a lovely view


My DS spotted that there were two rainbows and insisted that I take a picture
