On a Cold & Frosty Morning

Posted by Carole Leighton on Sunday, January 29, 2012,
Winter not quite biting, more of a gentle nibble!
Still took sometime to defrost the van this morning, before we were carefully on our way. Roads weren't too bad, but footpaths to some houses a little slippy.
All collected, we decided ( well I did, dogs always concur! ) We would have a fabby woodland/ river walk up by Gifford.
Very hard and frosty underfoot, made a pleasant change from all last weeks mud, dogs not bothered and the Mond...

Welcome to 2012

Posted by Carole Leighton on Sunday, January 29, 2012,
What a very blustery, windy start to the New Year. Thankfully we were still on holiday on the Tuesday, although Oreo still had to be taken out! Not very far, I hasten to add!! Even on the short walk we did, it was difficult to stay upright and already obvious there was going to be a lot of damage all round.
Wednesday on the other hand we had a full quota and a very interesting walk. Never quite sure where to walk on these horrendou...

Funday Monday!

Posted by Carole Leighton on Sunday, January 29, 2012,
Took a new route today between North Berwick and East Linton. Not such a quiet route as I had hoped, stayed off the beaten track eventually having met a couple of vans and the postie, obviously having a busy time helping santa with his parcels.
Blessing for the dogs - labs and springers as this meant we managed to unearth 2 hares, involving a very long chase, although Bramble ( who's 1st birthday was yesterday) was a bid be-fuddl...

Friday 9th December - after the storm

Posted by Carole Leighton on Sunday, January 29, 2012,
After yesterday's hairraising ( and lots of other things) weather, we decided to brave it and went to Saltoun Big Wood.
Where it was very muddy and very calm. Landscape for the first part of the walk had changed, lots of fallen branches and swerves round our normal paths which were much, much muddier. Seemed to have brought many new scents as the dogs were all away sniffing and chasing.
Further on into the woods and they started to ...

Hurricane Day!

Posted by Carole Leighton on Sunday, January 29, 2012,
Well, what an interesting day!!
Where to walk, woods or coast?? Didn't much like the thought of trees/branches falling on us, or being lashed by waves, so took the middle road and did Bolton to Gifford.
10 minutes from the van, we had sideways rain/hail, I was suitably drenched within 30 seconds....never been so wet!! Dogs shaking ears and looking at me as if I was a mad woman!! Rain went off as we took cover at the edge of the w...

Not too much snow here in Haddington, but on our tootle round East Lothian collecting dogs, it would seem some places have had lots more snow.
Didn't hinder the happyhounds fantastic walk today, crisp underfoot and slightly chilly, but dogs up for a good time, not noticing it was a bit Brrrrr!!
Still squirrels on the ground which gave Luka & Oreo a great deal of time with nose to the ground and quizzically staring at trees!! Meanw...

1st Day of December!

Posted by Carole Leighton on Sunday, January 29, 2012,
Considering this is the 1st of December, the weather was very kind to us.
A little bit chilly to start, but we all soon worked up a heat....tongues lolling & tails wagging. Bobby, ESS new recruit fitted in beautifully and was so happy when he found a ball!! Such a springer thing, the ball obsession, came with us until nearly the end of the walk, lost just before the end, by the distraction of a pheasant!!
I thought it a bit chilly...

Fabulous few days we've had, up until today!
Had a lovely fun time with Chloe, Hannah & Penny, (usually rambling with Nick, The Dog Rambler!)who settled in very well with the other dogs and seemed to have an absolute ball!! Photos in Gallery 3 slideshow.
Last Friday had a fabby time at the beach, with shirtsleeves rolled up and in Fliss's case trouser legs too.........so mild!
To this week and winter is making her presence felt!! It'...
