Sunny Morning

The sun was shining beautifully this morning and walking the dogs was a real pleasure. Unfortunately it had to be a fairly short one because Sophie was holding her leg up from time to time. She hurt it running around like a mad thing, back when it snowed. It had seemed to have got better but she's hurt it again somehow. The muscle at the top of her hip seems to be really bunched up again. If it doesn't improve over the next couple of days then she'll have to go to the vets.

Despite the occasional twinge she had a wonderful time trotting round and sniffing at everything.

Teazle, as usual, was far too interested in the fact that we were trying to photograph her and kept rushing over to investigate. Out of about 20 photos, this is the only one that actually shows her. All the others are of empty grass where she had been.

We are so lucky to have such beautiful places for dogwalking, right on our doorstep.

It still feels strange to only be walking two dogs. Bracken was the one who wanted to play and he would chase the girls until they played with him. They seem very subdued without him there. I miss him too. He loved to chase balls and sticks and would spend a lot of the walk running back and forth to us, whereas the girls are off sniffing in the bushes and doing their own thing.

They are both such lovely dogs. And i'm sure Braken still comes along for the walk. x x x x

The scenery is just gorgeous, i love that tree, it looks so magical!

It's on the back edge of Old Sarum. Go past the ruin and keep on round and it's one of the first in the stand of beech trees right on the edge
