Somewhere different

That's where we went today!  Parked the car near The Watermill at Ings.  Sure I heard it was dog friendly but they didn't take me there!  In fact we crossed the main road & went up a lane past the Ings Mill Caravan Park.  We kept going up before turning on to a bridle path that took us across several fields of sheep where I was kept on a lead.  Apart from one when I found a dead rabbit to eat & of course I will not go back to mistress until I have finished. She left me so I had to be quick & play catch up!
Eventually we got to an enclosed bridle path signposted Kentmere Hall.  The views were pretty impressive & of course Pika & I had freedom to run.
We had a steep stony path to walk down after we had passed some new barn conversions.  Once again mistress thinks it would be cool to live in the countryside.  If there's lots of fields I can run about in then I agree with her.

Soggy Doggy

That was me.  Very damp indeed.  It tipped it down for the last half mile of our walk back from up the "noddle"  Yewbarrow for non locals. I class myself as a local now, we've been to Witherslack so many times I think it is mistresses second home!  The views were good as the sun was out on the top.  The Kent Estuary was clear as was Ingleborough in the distance.  The school children have shelters built in the woods on the way up where they have outdoor lessons.  Mistress says it must be great to have lessons on the outdoors in the outdoors!  Whatever that means!
Of the course she didn't think to get her phone camera out so no pictures & the ones she took up there last year can't be found!! Still no doubt we'll go up there again sometime.
There are a couple of photos of me taken yesterday on the playing field near home.

I found a ball which I refused to give up until after I had been in the stream for a lie down

Quick update

How beautiful are these?
Mistresses friend planted these as a welcome to her house.

We went for a walk through the woods to the north of Witherslack &ended up in this meadow.  Lots of good smells & space for me to run around.  So I did!!

This is the view to Pool Bank.  Two rather nice houses for sale but mistress they were out of her price range.  Pity, I could live next to a field like this no problem.

Look!  Plenty of room to run!

So we're back to blog.  When I'm not catching up on my sleep that is.  It's a dogs life you know.

Sadly mistresses friend's husband passed away very suddenly a few weeks ago so we haven't been able to blog as had been planned but hopefully we can resume soon with photos.  Blogger is being a pain & mistresses computer doesn't like blogger but the photos are on that not this one belonging to young master so she has to work out what she will do.  Me - I just do what I'm told -most of the time anyway!  I did manage to lose my nose halter in the woods & it hasn't been replaced but then I haven't tried to pull mistress over lately either.

Rain, rain go away

I really am not keen on walking in the rain. Especially when accompanied by a howling gale. We drove to Chapel House wood near Newby Bridge so there was some respite but I don't like my ears blown around very much. Friend Pika came too & we dried off in front of his open fire (and I chewed his bone).  No pics it was too wet for mistress to even think about taking a camera.

i wonder if..

....... I can post from the mistresses Kindle?  Photos may be a problem but hey I can write!
A lie in tomorrow. Yeah. Young master will take me out with the ball in the morning. Mistress has walked me 2.5 miles the last 3 mornings before work, in the dark,  at a pace.  This morning I registered my protest by repeatedly sitting down.  Didn't work. I was unceremoniously dragged along. I'm sure she's on a mission to get herself fit / lose weight. Hope the master can start walking me more soon if his foot gets better. I think mistress is secretly hoping so too!  Night. Night.

Try again

2014 was a year I said hello to new friends & goodbye to old ones.  That's life.
Mistresses good friend - the one at Witherslack with the good woodland walks close by - said hello to Kruger her Mums old dog who she could no longer look after.  He was a lovely old boy, sadly didn't have long for this world but a loving home to end his days.  Couldn't ask for any more than that.
Mistress has seriously messed up & lost pictures of him!
However he was a relative of Pika who now resides at Witherslack.  Pika is a retired stud dog & mistress says he is such a gentleman.  Whatever one of those is?

We said goodbye to young mistresses dog Simba.  She stayed with me sometimes.  Mistress stayed with her at the vets & held her paw.  Seems she's lost those photos too.  Really.
RIP Simba.
Master is currently unable to walk me due to having had an operation so mistress takes me out before she goes to work & again when she comes home.  We haven't told her master takes me out with the ball in the afternoon!!
Young master is now at college, wants to work with electric or something but mistress thinks he may join the army.  He did scrub up well for his school prom though. 

Well I'm going to try & get back on track with this blog m'larkey.  Mistress has a new camera lens & a bag to carry it all in so as long as it stops raining soon there will be more pics.
This was taken last Sunday.
