TNP has goned on hol-ee-day again, so I had to take on the very growed up man dog task of keeping her happy on Valentines day. I tooked her for a nice walk on the beach. We actually followed a walk guide from these little maps that TNP left us. We was gonna do a longer one, but it be doing this,
Raining! Mostly all day.
It takes us some time to get out of the house cos Mum being really annoying and not letting me go out until I calm. Sometimes we even has to go out and come right back in again.
The very picture of goodness, right?
Mum didn’t bring me a ball, so I made sure I told ehr repeatedly how I felt about that, she did not think that be so romantic and some guy with two dogs annoyed Mum a lot. His dog came barging up to Mum bouncing all over her and was doing that to everyone on the beach. Of course I be barkbarking at Mum to get attentions and the guy says to Mum about me being timid when he tried to pat my head and if I ever got on with any other dogs. Mum said I be barking at her not his dog and bit her tongue about the rest.
Ok, off we go, down the beach. It tooked us longer than the map says cos we had to stop and do trainings.
We is heading for those houses in between the two hilly bits. Come on Mum!
Doing waits and recalls.
What a good boy huh!
Here some of us getting closer to our half way point.
Good sniffings cannot be ignored.
Now, at about this time Mum started to feel a bit lost and wonder if this right and wish she had tooked the map and not just read it. She knew we had to cross the railway, but did not be sure how to get there. Now if TNP reading this he will be saying ‘huh’ cos we has walked this route a few times with him. But we usually go across the golfcourse and not the beach. What can you do huh, that just the way Mum’s frizzled brain does workings.
But… She figured it out. Across the bridge and past the sign.
Bigify if you wants to read it.
I walked through all thse muddy puddles but I didn’t let Mum catch it on camera, casnot give them evidence to use against you, you know.
Then it takes you down a lane and back to my house through the village. We passed a garden with cute mini houses made out of pebbles. Mum be too ascared to take a photo but she will go back one day to get one, she says. We did see along the road where someone had made some words with stones. It say ‘he is the way the light the truth, Jesus.
Here some piccures of the village.
Here the old school, TNP went here, when he be a puppy. You might thing it looks cool and British. hehe.
and the church…
Mum tooked a photo of this house to show you the sign. It number 123 and it says yanm tun tethera. This part of an old Cumbrian language for counting sheep. TNP knows it up to 10. Read more here
Ok, we is nearly finished our walk. I got excited cos I seed TNP’s van. I always try and go see him, but mostly he doesn’t stop, which means it some imposter TNP and I would do barkings at him! (Note from Mum: TNP drives a white van for his job and sometimes we see him about when we’re walking, he usually stops and says hi to Ludo who gets really excited. Thus, Ludo thinks every white van is TNP)
The last field and we is done.
Happy Valentines day Mum!
I hope you liked coming with us on our walk,
p.s. Since it Tricky T-day.
