At last a nice long walk in the spring sunshine. We left our cottages (click here) at a reasonable time and headed over to the National Trust Longshaw Estate where we started our walk down to Padley Gorge. Now no one told me but it was masters birthday and mistress had planned the walk so we could stop for lunch at the Grindleford Station Cafe which is masters favourite stop. He likes the bacon babs they make. And I am sure I would too if I was given a chance to try one. But no. We got a bowl of WATER. I tried all my cute poses on mistress (pointless on master) but still no bacon. Oh well its a dogs life.
After Grindleford we made our way up Padley Gorge which was quite spectacular in the spring sun which of course meant we had to stop for mistress to ‘admire the view’ every few feet.
Master seems a lot better although he still seems to get a bit out of breath when we are going up hill but that could be his age. Did idiot brother tell you about the very very very big dog we had here last week?
Have a look at the attached photo. I wasn’t going to get too close to that as it might have tried to eat me. I did, however, try and sneak into his cottage as I figure that a dog that size must get very very big dinners (unlike my meager offerings) but I kept getting shooed out. Someone had warned them.
