Kirk Loch and Castle Loch - Lochmaben - Dumfries and Galloway

Oooohh we went somewhere new today,we walked round this Loch and there were lots of swans and ducks and the walk went through a golf course,so mum said we had to watch our for flying golf balls.!
Then when we thought we were coming home in the car we stopped at another Loch and walked all round that,the second one was a lot bigger than the first one and we were walking for ages.
There was a ruined castle on the 2nd walk that mum wanted to look at,but we were more interested in the smells.

Kingholm Quay to Kelton - Dumfries and Galloway

We went a lovely walk along the river this morning,we used to be able to go off lead here but there has been sheep in the fields for ages now,so mum kept us on.
But mum said that she couldn't see any sheep,so she said next time we come down she will let us off if we promise to behave.

Ae forest - Dumfries and Galloway

We went to Ae forest today,but when we got there there were signs up to say the carpark was closed and a big gate up stopping people going down to the car park,so mum parked in a layby by the entrance to the forest and we went a different way,but when we had walked a fair distance a man in a big tree eating machine said we weren't allowed to go any further as they were working,felling trees.
So we went another way,a different way to any other time we have been there,and when we were nearly at the end there was another gate stopping us getting back to the car,so mum was naughty and we went past the gate as she said it would take too long to go all the way back the way we had already come.

The Hills - Dumfries

We have been in kennels again,as mum had to go into something called a hospital overnight,but we had a great time as there were loads of other dogs in there,a Beagle,2 Newfies,a Boxer,a Collie and a Rottie.

When mum came to pick us up we went a little walk to The Hills,mum didn't feel like going too far,and we were tired aswell,so we didn't really mind.

Glencaple - Dumfries and Galloway

The sun was shining so where better to go than down the estuary.

We love it here as there is always something good to smell,and today we found the remains of a sheep that had been washed up,there wasn't much left of it just some bones,Flint and me both wanted to eat the bones,but mum wouldn't let us,but we did manage a sneaky roll in them.

Dock park and Deer park - Dumfries

Flint is a bit poorly at the moment so we just a short walk through the local parks this morning,it was snowing when we set off,but then the sun came out.
We saw a few dogs,one a Labrador wanted to play with us and kept running round us in circles until Flints lead came loose and he ran off to play.

Kingholm Quay - Dumfries

We just went for a walk down to the local fields today,we go here about once a week,and there are usually lots of dogs to play with,but not today though.
When we go usually mum is in a rush as she has to get to work,but today we spent 2 hours there,lots of sniffing was done.
Mum tried to get us to pose for that camera thing she has,but we didn't want to and we kept spoiling her pictures.

Kirkconnell flow - Dumfries

This has got to be our favourite place.
We were there for 4 hours today just running round,sniffing,chasing.Fantastic.
And deer,well there were loads today,not just one or two but a herd of them,it was very tempting for us to chase them,but mum called me back,Craven didn't even see them.!
Mum took some photo's but she said they weren't very good,so she is going to put one she took of herself up so you can see what the place is like.

Ae forest - Dumfries and Galloway

It was misty and murky today,but at least it was dry.
Craven had to stay on his longline today as last time we were here he was naughty and wouldn't come back,I was offlead nearly all the time,and I behaved as I didn't want to have to go on my longline the next time we went there.
We both had our new harnesses on today,they are quite comfy although we weren't sure at first as they are totally different to the ones we normally wear.

Heathhall forest - Dumfries

We set off to go to Ae forest,but as we got nearer there was snow on the road,so mum said that we had better not go there as we have to drive a mile down a forest track,so she turned the car round and we went to Heathhall which was good as there are usually lots of dogs there.
But not today though,it was a damp,murky day and all the other doggies must have been at home sitting in front of their fires as we only met 1 other dog.
There were some workmen in the forest building another path,so that will be exciting when we go back,mum said it will be ready in 2 weeks time and that we will come back then to have a walk on it.

Criffel - Dumfries and Galloway

Remember I told you all about a hill called Criffel that mum was going to take us up,well today she did,it was a lovely day,the sun was shining.
When we got to the car park the hill looked huge close up.We set off and it was really frosty and beautiful.
It was a hard slog up the hill and it was slippy in places as it was icy and there was snow up there too.
But.....................we only managed to get half way up as mum said it was too slippy and dangerous for her,but she did say that when the weather gets better we will go all the way up.

Nunholm - Dumfries and Dumfries town centre

Today we went down to the river,then instead of going our normal way mum took us over a bridge and through some fields at the other side of the river.
Craven got to play with a dog,and he behaved himself and came back to mum when she asked him to.!!!
After we had been to the river we thought we were going home,but mum took us into town for some 'socialisation' whatever that is,we just wanted to say hello to the people and their doggies
But we were very well behaved,and there were lots of different smells in town and lots of food on the floor,but we didn't try to eat it,as it seemed to be the seagulls food.

Friday, 3 February 2012


Well it must be Friday cos we are home.

Mum came to pick us up just as we were coming back from a walk,we heard our car and we got excited,so as soon as she pulled up we jumped in.

We came straight home and mum gave us both a huge bone to chew on,we are going to go to sleep now though because it was quite noisy in the kennels and we didn't sleep much.

It's good to be home.

Mabie kennels - Dumfries

Oh no,I'm confused,mum took us a lovely walk and then she took us to a building that has lots of dogs barking inside,she spoke to a lady and then she took us down to a huge cage thing with a big bed in it.
Then the lady opened a little door and we went outside.
But them mum left us.!!! she gave us both a kiss and said she will see us on Friday,whatever that is.
Craven seems ok,but I'm a little bit scared,Craven has said that mum did this to him last year and he had great fun playing and barking with the other dogs,but I'm not sure.
I hope mum comes back real soon.
