Morning all, well as we had a pretty wet weekend we didn't really do anything too exciting - Louis got clipped so the human needs to take some photies of that for you but we thought you might like to know about another nice place to visit and that's Westonbirt Arboretum. Any of you in this part of the country will probably have been there as it's very popular for dog walkers, we only get to go there as a treat but it really is a treat.
Two thirds of the Arboretum is called Silkwood, where dogs are allowed, even welcomed!
|Spot the Schnauzer! This is part of Silkwood - loads of furtling space!|
|Some of the 18,00 trees at Westonbirt, one of the largest collections of trees in the world|
|There are more formal walkways through the trees - no traffic is allowed so it's safe...|
|...and then there are lots of tracks leading ff to explore|
The humans usually take their trusty thermos flask of coffee and find somewhere to sit and listen to the birds while we explore, we'd recommend a visit to any of our canine friends, the autumn is beautiful as the trees are such wonderful colours but it is busier then, at Christmas there are carol services by candlelight. There are events throughout the year, in August they have an event called Treefest which sounds great, details here if you'd like to find out more.
Thanks to everyone who came up with names for Toad, we loved them all and have decided to keep it simple so Mr Toad it is - we've been told to keep away from him as he can be poisonous if we lick him - as if!! Have a great day everyone and don't forget to check out the Picnic in the Bark event on Jun 17th, details on Sarge's blog, we've got a button thingy on the blog to take you there...it only took her an hour to figure that one out!
