The weather man said it was going to be a lovely day today so we decided to go for a walk with our friend @CatCripps. She suggested a walk in the forest – she said it was to keep me away from sheep – me? chase sheep? little ol’ harmless me?? Well, ok, so I have chased a sheep or 2 in the past, but that was when I was too young to know any better. (Now I’d make sure I caught them! hee hee)
Anyway we went to the big forest in the Trossachs off a very windy, up and down road called the Duke’s Pass just north of Aberfoyle. You’ll find the walk we did here.
It was very misty to start with, so everything is a bit fuzzy.
But then the sun came out and people started taking clothes off.
I have to keep my fur on, of course, so I do like to jump into the puddles and streams that we find, just to keep cool.
Sometimes I sit by the side of the path and chew a stick…
We practiced “recall” quite a lot today and, even though I say so myself, I was VERY good at it. Look at me heading right back from the stream,
and to Cat as well.
This one was REALLY fast…
Then Cat decided she liked the puddles as much as me, and wanted to take one home with her. I tried to help her too, but she was quite good at it by herself. We lent her a tub to take the puddle home in. It’s funny because I didn’t know people collected puddles.
Then we started heading back to the car park.
These are the same two hills as before, but it’s a little bit (just a little bit) clearer at this end of the walk.
Right at the end we found a nice stream so I could have a drink and wash my paws, and I even left a mark so people would know I was here today
All in all, it was a lovely walk. I’m hoping for another one tomorrow, cos the weather man says it will be nice again, yay!
