Abbie – last morning walk for a while ;-(

Today Abbie is going back home to Glasgow. This of course means that we will not be having our morning walk any more. It has been a mixed experience with cold, show and slushy conditions to contend with. But today the paths are clear although there is still some snow lying around.

However we did enjoy this last walk and the pleasant temperatures which would have been aronnd 6 – 8 degrees I think.

After we got back we decided that Abbie should have a bath before going back home. The paths have been covered in grit and mud and of course the garden is a bit of a mud bath to because of all the constructional work on the garage. You can imagine the effect this has on a dogs coat!!!!

Here is Abbie with Bennachie in the backgound…..
You can also see some spots of snow – it has been remarkable that we have had snow lying for such a long time – I don’t think I can remember a spell of weather link this in my memory – although I do recall my grandparents talking about similar conditions from their younger day!!!!

Beautiful morning in Kemnay


Just back from walking the dog – beautiful morning in Kemnay, warm and sunny with blue skies 😉 How many more mornings like this will we see before the Autumn kicks in proper.

Kind of special day today has the following time in it 09:09 09/09/09. So I am trying to make this post a close to this time as possible 😉

The following photo shows the orange/red colours of the first one to start to taking on its autumn colours.

Dog walk with a difference!!!

Well for the whole of the summer we seem to have had a dog staying with us. This has made an inevitable difference to our daily routine!!!! For me this has meant a daily morning walk with the dog just after breakfast! Yesterday, Abbie went home to Glasgow with Linda so we are back to the “normal” situation with no dog to look after! Funny feeling as my body was telling me that it was time to take my morning walk – but with no dog as an excuse! I did feel the benefit of these walks to decided to go in any case…….

First, I needed to find some poo bags after heading in the direction of the cupboard I remembered that there was no dog, so no need for poo bags! Then, were is the dog lead – opps again remembered that there was no dog!!! So I put my jacket on and headed for the river as usual!! Photo of me just before I set off!!!


Michty me this dog has some pull!!!!!
