Chris and I have unintentionally started a new tradition in the last couple of years of going for a walk somewhere different on my birthday. I’m not sure if two years in a row counts as a tradition exactly but it feels like the start. Last year Chris and I took Elsie to Ashridge Estate with my mum and sister and walked round the woods with hot chocolate. There’s a few pics in this post. This year with Lilly in tow we headed to Black Park.
The dogs loved it, of course chasing each other and running round in circles. Elsie couldn’t resist a mud bath to cool down after weaving through tree upon tree in pursuit of Lil. Let’s face it she’s never gonna out run our little whip-jack but she’s got the stamina to keep going!The picture above makes me chuckle – it shows the two dogs personalities so well. Lil is busy looking for mischief/something to do/wondering what the camera is and Elsie has the look of pure adoration and wanting to please.
Not so much in this one…I think she’s seeing what Lil is up to… It was nowhere near as chilly as last year but we did catch some raindrops on our departure. The weather has been really good for walking but it seems to be turning cold now, time to wrap up!
