A bit of a change for Mac and Cam on Sunday. Mike was about and wanted a run so he took Cam on an 8 miler around Blengdale Forest. Mac, as mentioned in my previous post, has done his cruciate ligament so running is a no no so it was Maccy and Me.
Before I knew it 3pm had come around so with a subtle hint from Mac (standing by the door) I thought we’d better get a move on. The sun decided to come out a right treat so I decided we’d have a local walk, no car required.
Here’s the route and what a great 3.5ish mile one it was.
The route is very muddy at times so if you’re going to walk this, high walking boots or wellies are advisable and possibly very small dogs require carrying so as not to end up head to toe in the stuff! Mac being of a statuesque nature coupled with being a Border Collie so accustomed to dirt/mud/sand/dung had no issues!
Gosforth has 3 excellent dog friendly pubs, the Horse & Groom, Gosforth Hall and the Lion & Lamb so it makes a great place to end up after or pass through when walking your 4 legged friend!
It really was the best part of the day and looking back at this picture, it’s hard to imagine weather like this. This week has been another awful one with no one escaping the storms but with the South West and Wales experiencing the worst of it.
It looks like it’s going to be another unsettled weekend but with the Valentines love of our 4 legged friends we’ll surely going to have the best time possible!
