Hello again and first let us wish a Happy New Year to you all !
It's New Year's Day again but this year they have got up early (well early for them anyway !) and taken us out for a good walk on Amroth beach.
Here I am with Mum. We had a great time and we walked all the way round to Marros beach as it was a low tide. Just to round a good day off we had a great Turkey dinner when we got home - lovely. Hope the rest of the year carries on like this !
Today Mum and Dad have taken us out for a walk up on the Preselis in North Pembrokeshire and there is absolutely tons of snow there. I've never seen so much snow before.
I have been having a whale of a time but, in places, the snow is deeper than a Jack Russell and it's a bit scary when you suddenly sink in head deep ! It's not so bad for Widget as she isn't as big as me. Here though I've found a nice patch and I've got some speed up. A great day !
After leaving us alone overnight (thankfully we have our lovely Auntie Joy who comes in and feeds us and keeps us company. Woofs and licks, Auntie Joy !) Mum and Dad owed us big time ! So Dad took us out to Penally and we walked all the way down to Tenby and back. A great walk.
P.S. Has Widget gone completely and utterly barking in this photo ? What do you think ?
We've been a bit quiet lately but we have been out for a couple of good walks on the Coast Path but Dad hasn't managed to take any decent photos of us. Still the big news item is that at long last Mum and Dad have gotten around to booking a holiday - we were beginning to wonder if they'd forgotten. Anyway we're going to Elterwater in Langdale at the end of May. Widget says that Langdale is good walking and that it is Dad's favourite so we ought to get some really good days out there. And a good walk means a good meal as well.
Oh I say, they've gone mad. Absolutely barking !
Here we were complaining that they hadn't booked a holiday and now not only have they booked the week in the Lakes but tonight they've told us that we're going away this coming weekend as well ! Apparently we're going back to Rhayader in mid Wales. We went there for the same weekend last year and had a good time so with luck we'll have an equally good weekend this year. Humans are strange !
Well, we're back home after our week in Langdale and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The highlight was having a swim in Blea Tarn after the hot walk over Lingmoor, that was just what a Jack Russell needed to cool off.
Dad has already put one photo up (see above) and has promised that he will put some more up once he's sorted them out so please come back soon. Hopefully it won't be long until we go away again !
"Dad, what are you going on about ? Why would a sheep speak in a French accent ? Have you gone totally ga-ga ?"
Dad has now put all the photos up. We had three days of really warm weather but after that it turned cooler and more overcast so he didn't take as many photos and he doesn't think there are any more of us that are good enough. We agree, after all only the best is good enough for the Jack Pack !
He is going to put a few more up on the 2010 Travels page in the next few days but there won't be any more of us just yet.
Famous last words !
It's a lovely evening and Uncle Bill and Auntie Liz have come over to our house for a barbecue with Mum and Dad.
I've heard a lot about humans getting food poisoning from food not being cooked enough on barbecues so I've offered my services as official food taster. But they just wolfed it down themselves. I'm just not appreciated round here, that's the problem.
Dad has been suffering badly with Hay Fever so we haven't been out much recently. Yesterday he came off his medicine for it with out any problems so today he is taking us out again.
Dad has brought us down to Minwear by Blackpool Mill for a walk along the River Cleddau.
"Dad, do you think Yves St Laurent would be interested in marketing this ?"
I suppose he could have called it "Hum". Bath time for Percy coming up.....
Oh No !
Widget is very poorly. She can't walk very well and one of her back legs keeps giving out underneath her. Dad had to take her to the vet the other day and he's got to take her back next week for some X-rays but the vet thinks she's got a slipped disc. in the meantime she's on tablets.
Great News !
Widget has come back from the vet and there was nothing untoward on the X-rays (except that she has an extra rib on her left side - how bizarre !). After a good night's sleep she has been a lot more like her old self. Dad says if she is OK tomorrow he'll take us both out for a short walk after he gets back from work. Roll on tomorrow.....
Here I am in Stackpole Woods.
It's Bank Holiday weekend and as the beaches are so busy Dad has brought us here for a walk.
Widget is out for her first walk. She's not running as much as she used to but she's out and enjoying her walk.
It has finally stopped raining and Dad has snuck us out for a walk up the Grisedale valley.
We walked right the way to the old mine workings at the end of the valley and back so, all in all, the day turned out better than we thought at one stage.
We're back home in Pembroke now. It's been really warm the last few days and Dad decided to bring us for a walk on the beach but when we got here everyone and their dog were on the main beach. Fortunately Dad noticed that there was virtually no one on the southern end so we went down there.
Here we're having a nice paddle in a rock pool to cool down after having a good run. Luvverly !
It has been really cold recently but, unfortunately, we haven't had any snow. As it was so nice this morning Dad has brought us down to Freshwater East.
Freshwater East is an old favourite and the closest beach to where we live but we only get to come here in winter. Fortunately today it's really nice and the tide is out as well so we're having a great run.
Come on Widge, let's go and jump all over Dad !
Here I am above Barafundle beach. It was very cold and it had been snowing the night before but not very much unfortunately. Still Dad brought us out for a walk from Stackpole Quay to Barafundle and back and very good it was too !
Dad keeps on calling me Bat-dog. What is he talking about ?
Dad has started his Christmas holiday today so hopefully we're going to get lots of good walks. Today he has brought us out to Penally where we can have a really good run on the beach so that's a good start !
Widget has found this stick (although half a tree might be a better description) and here I am having fun by jumping over it while she's carrying it
