I do prefer the cooler weather despite the fact that Greyhounds come from the middle east. So this year we went on holiday to Wales in March!
It was cold! In fact there was snow on the mountains and I had to wear a coat to bed!
We went for lots of walks along the river.
And walks in the mountains.
We stayed in a little cottage in a tiny village, but the best thing was that the local hotel in the village where we was staying, was very enlightened. Hounds (oh and dogs) were aloud in the restaurant and they had a menu for us.
We also visited the coast and a few castles. Despite the cold it was fun and it was not too cold for ice-cream!
Weekends usually mean a long walk, but Richard only took be for a short walk this Saturday morning so I knew they had something planned.
After breakfast it was a trip into Lincoln where Caroline dropped me and Richard off at the Race Course Grandstand, from there we had a steady walk along the Canal, lots of new smells and a fun walk before we got into town proper.
We walked over a bridge which was not nice as they had large trucks going over it and I am not keen on traffic. Once over the bridge we popped into one of my favourite shops, Pets at Home, where a very nice lady gave me treats and also cut my nails.
From there we walked towards the cathedral, to get there we had to walk up the steepest hill I have ever seen, and even with my super-fit greyhound stamina, I was still out of breath by the time I reached the top.
Once at the top we met up with Caroline again, while I had been getting my nails done she had been getting her hair done. I do like my staff to be smartly attired.
From there we walked back to the car home for a nice long rest.
But that was not the end of the days adventures, when it got close to teatime we headed back off in the car again to visit Aunty Angela. We had all had a nice tea there and I got to have a nice long sleep. Just to be comfy I did take my own bed, its always nice to sleep in comfort even when you are away from home.
Not just me I should add, I took Caroline and Richard with me so that I could be chauffeured around. It was a holiday to the Isle of Anglesey, but luckily no boat required, just a bridge.
Lots of walks and a rather nice hotel. The best bit was they allowed humans to eat in the bar with us hounds and dogs. One night we had six dogs and hounds together with their staff all eating together, very merry.
This Sunday the Lincolnshire Greyhound Trust had a meet up at Willingham Woods where we all went for a nice walk in the woods. Afterwards there was lots of treats. I also got to meet the famous Yogi bear a rather famous greyhound around these parts.
