My favorite beach walk in Cornwall

When we are in Cornwall, we always make sure to visit the lovely long beach near Hayle.  It has miles of sandy space for doggies of all shapes an sizes to run on and lovely sand dune walks along the edge of the beach, to enjoy the sniffs of rabbits!
As you have seen a few pictures of me on this beach before, mum added the proof that this is a new picture, taken this year.  Otherwise I might have got away with one showing less grey hairs on my chin!!

John O' Groats to Lands End in 26 days!!!

Hi everyone, hope you are well?
As you know we were on holiday in Scotland last month.  With plans in place to visit family in Cornwall only a few weeks later.  This meant that John O' Groats to Lands End just had to be done.
I would love to boast that we walked, jogged or cycled.  Actually - dad drove us there on two totally separate occasions!

Doggie friends and woodland walks

Sadly we didn't get around to taking any photos of my new friends Dux and Mia - 2 very handsome doberman dogs.
We went on several beach and woodland walks together.  Well, when I say 'together' I mean we were all out at the same time.  They are much younger than me and always raced off playing at 100mph together.
I was happy to potter behind with mum and dad!

We went to John O' Groats!

Hey there! As promised, bit more to tell you about my trip to Scotland.
As we were so far up north we decided to visit the very north tip (well, nearly) and take a photo opportunity.
As you can see, it was a beautiful sunny day....and 876 miles from Lands End.

We have an ambition to visit the other end of the country really soon and take another photo!  Watch this space!

I have been very poorly.......

Hi all, just back from a fantastic 10 days in Scotland, right up at Bonar Bridge and beyond..... more on that  in later blogs!
I have been a really poorly dog, (so mum and dad say). I even didn't eat any food for 4 days and actually refused my favorite treat of cheese spread inside my Kong. Looking back I find it hard to believe myself!
Mr Vet told us I had a very nasty bacterial infection; once he had ruled out what we first thought might be a blockage  of sticks, stones or bones from being the culprit.  Many antibiotic and steriod injections and tablets later, plus an x-ray (thank goodness for pet insurance), I am fixed.  Luckily I got better just in time to go on holiday.
Here is a pic of me looking out over the east coast way way up north, feeling much better.
