Hi Everyone, Dexter here, it's been so much fun reading about all our new friends, we have heard from dogs from all over the world, it's amazing! We thought we'd tell you and show you a little about where we live and would love to know where you all come from.
|At the entrance to the park - hurry up!!!!|
I was born in a town called Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, UK and Louis was born in a town called Shaftesbury, when we were old enough we came to live with our humans a few miles from Bath and Bristol. We are lucky to be close to the countryside so get plenty of good walks but occasionally get to go to Bath, where they have a fantastic park called Royal Victoria Park.
The park is really old, my human said I must give a bit of boring history that it was opened in 1830 by Queen Victoria when she was 11 years old - did she have a dog though? That's a much more interesting piece of information! There is lots to explore in the park, you don't know where to look first, I spotted this little squirrel munching away but it shot up a tree so fast as soon as I tried to chase it!
|Spot the Squirrel!|
There are lots of places to walk around, the human always wants to walk along The Royal Crescent which is in the park, they use this for a lot of films, I keep suggesting that Louis and I would make a great couple of extras but she hasn't taken us along yet! I think we'd make a brilliant couple of lap dogs in a Jane Austen novel don't you?
|Never mind the buildings, look at all that grass to play on!|
This is me walking through The Crescent, our human says she'll have an apartment here when they win the lottery whatever that is.
|Enough of the buildings - I need to get back in there...now!!|
There is one word of warning I should give other dogs about this park. Very often these huge things with people in fall out of the sky. It is our job to alert everyone to these so you really must bark as loud a you can when you see one to get everyone out of the way. This one landed just feet from us and I told them off in no uncertain terms, this is the 'thing':
|This is the very noisy 'thing' to be avoided at all costs!|
There are 57 acres to explore so it's a busy time for a miniature schnauzer, it's often quite busy but you can find quiet areas, on the other hand it's nice to meet people and other dogs sometimes, another plus is the amount of bread left around for the ducks, if you're quick enough you can get some before the human spots you - that's quite yummy, here we are heading off to do some more exploring:
|Quick, quick...I think I spotted the Squirrel, this way...hurry!|
I hope you enjoyed our little tour around Victoria Park, we'll show you some more places around us in weeks to come, I'll let Louis get a look in next time...maybe. Would love to know where you all live, or is that being nosey? Have a good day everyone, Dex & Louis x
