Don’t say anything to my humans but I was quite tired when I woke up to another morning in the beautiful Lake District. Me & M went for a walk of about 3.5 miles and I saw a deer and squirrels. D went off for a run.We got back before him but he still looked very happy with his run. We had a couple of big walking days under our belts so didn’t go out until later in the morning. We were on holiday after all.
For some reason they decided to try and go to Ambleside and Grasmere on a bank holiday. I tried to warn them, but what can you do. We got there and both towns were packed out with people who all had the same idea as us. There was nowhere to park and we just drove around the towns, becoming more agitated. I tried to tell M&D that these people were there to see me, but they weren’t having any of it. It was thought best to return to Patterdale and consider the options. This was the view from Kirkstone Pass on the way back.
When we got back we decided that it would be better to walk to Brotherswater which was a fairly straightforward stroll of 3 miles each way. It was a good walk as it was relatively flat. I met plenty of people and other furs on the walk and this was the view once we got there.
There was a spaniel in the water, having a great time, but for some reason M&D thought I would run away if I went off lead. Would I?? Here in the Lakes?? We wandered down by the shoreline and then I decided it would be good fun to drag D up a really steep bank. Not sure he enjoyed it as much as I did.
By the time we were on our way back I was getting more tired and even D noticed that I wasn’t pulling so much on the lead. But we went past a farm with some sheep and I got a second wind. He didn’t enjoy that either. But it was as much as I could do to flop onto my bed when I got back to the cottage.
When we went to the White Lion in the evening, I was recognised by the people behind the bar. I even got a tickle and a gravy bone. It’s always nice to know that my reputation precedes me. We had a table booked, apparently it’s so I couldn’t see other furs in the pub. I could see them, I could smell them but didn’t have the heart to tell M&D as they thought I couldn’t. To be honest I settled down really quickly until a very nice lady wanted a big kiss and tickle off me. How could I resist? She said she had lost her Jack Russell last year, so I tried to cheer her up a little.
I also reminded all the other peeps in the pub that I was back – aroooo. I think everyone loves me. They all seemed to like me, I hope so as I’ve been working hard on my charm. Have I mentioned I was very tired. Another day in the Lakes had passed, I was loving this and wanted it to go on for ever.
