Miserable Monday!

Posted by Carole Leighton on Monday, April 30, 2012,
Tired, contented Happydoggys tonight! Having suffered a miserable, wet, soggy, dismal, muddy, cold (running out of adjectives!) 2 and a half hour walk today. Oreo Boy & friends are all curled up, dry, fed and fast asleep.Think a little of the blame can be attributed to the heat emanating from the central heating, which is only on, to dry all the wet clothes, towels, van vetbed etc.!! Have had to open a window, just to keep me awake!!

Misty, Wet day @ Yellowcraigs

Posted by Carole Leighton on Wednesday, April 25, 2012,
Dismal!! What a horrid start to the day! Wet, damp and miserable. Once we had evryone collected, question was where to go? I always like these days, cos the feeling is no-one else wil visit the coast, when the weather is like this.
Not quite true to form. Parked up at Yellowcraigs and first of all met Luka's neighbour, one of our local amenity wardens. Having gone through the sniffing crotch/bottom ritual we were on our way. Decided before the freedom of the beach, we would have a controlled w...

Apologies

Posted by Carole Leighton on Sunday, April 22, 2012,
Huge apologies folks! Realised we haven't posted anything for a while. It's not cos we haven't had any interesting walks, just cos Carole's been a bit poorly....feeling a wee bit better now :-)
Regardless of the horrid weather, we have to get up, get on and get out!!
Having said that, the very early morning yucky starts have given way to the sun breaking through and a much brighter day :-)
On that note..where did summertime March go? Not to worry....always a new, bright horizon for us.....inter...

Thrilling Tuesday

Posted by Carole Leighton on Tuesday, April 17, 2012,
What a fantastic day!! Started off a little? drizzly, whilst taking Oreo out for his early morning walk at which he was joined by his little JRT puppy friend, Pippa. By the time we were off on our collection run, the sun was starting to peep through the clouds and by the time we reached North Berwick it was starting to feel a little warm.
Off to the woods today, but 1st an energetic run in the stubble, for those who had missed their friends over the holidays. Everyone seemed very pleased to se...

Pretty Little April Showers!!

Posted by Carole Leighton on Thursday, April 12, 2012,
What a horrible start to the week! Snowy, windy and very, wet ground. Wishful thinking on my part, has delayed the ordering of the new wellies...........so, very, wet feet as my waterproof walking boots are no longer waterproof!
Actually, I very much doubt if anything other than wellies could cope withwhat we've been through the past couple of days.
Thinking outside the box, thought we'd take a very level walk on Tuesday (1st day back and brain not quite in sync!) Level walk = many, many puddle...

Happy Easter Weekend

Posted by Carole Leighton on Monday, April 9, 2012,
What a fabulous Easter weekend we have had!! Weather not been up to much, but we haven't had cause to complain! We have been closed Good Friday and Easter Monday, but that hasn't stopped us being out and about finding new walks for some new adventures. The very happy Bramble has been with us this weekend and has had a great time swimming in the Tyne at every opportunity!! We did feel we had to be careful over the early part of the weekend, due to the rain, the river was fast flowing with some...

Windy & Wintry

Posted by Carole Leighton on Tuesday, April 3, 2012,
Well!! That was a bit of a shock this morning, I know it had been predicted, but who believes weather forecasters, especially when they got it so right last week!
Having cleared the van of snow, off we went to collect our motley crew. Weather getting progressively worse as we climbed steeper towards the Lammermuirs. All collected, we disembarked from the van, Fliss & I wrapped up from head to toe.
Dogs were completely non plussed, in fact they were relishing the weather! Oreo & Rudi tryi...

Cold & Wet

Posted by Carole Leighton on Monday, April 2, 2012,
Well, weather aside (eeeeewwww!!) We had a really goody day today. Dogs a bit subdued in the damp, but still up for a good sniff and play. We got fabulously close to a young deer before it decided to bounce of with its fluffball tail disappearing into the distance - as we were watching this, we heard a very unusual noise from the reservoir, still trying to identify it, looked over the edge to see 2 geese happily paddling along with a  Mallard duck & drake. Truly wasn't expecting to see geese,...
