The sunshine has been very welcome this week. It’s cold, but at least you feel more cheerful. We’ve had some good long walks. Today we walked to Waterlow Park in Highgate: it was given to the public by Sir Sydney Waterlow (one time Lord Mayor of London) in 1889 as a ‘garden for the gardenless’ which I think is a lovely idea. Its quiet there at this time of the year, and so good for walking and chasing activities (although I have to watch out for fox poo, as ever). I don’t go there much in the summer; on sunny days its littered with people lying on the grass, who don’t want dogs running near them, and children who want to stroke the ‘nice doggy’. I prefer it full of dog walkers, runners and older people exercising (like me!) Definitely turning into a grumpy old woman!
Thank you Madeline, I saw these interactive dog toys advertised over Christmas and wondered what they were like, obviously far too easy for the bedlington! Thandi looks like she is in the middle of nowhere in this photo, you would never think the middle of London!
