Jarvis has been enjoying a few extra walks recently. We went back to the woods for the first time since last summer and it’s looking a lot different without any leaves on the trees.
Overall this winter hasn’t been too bad so far. It’s been relatively warm and not too much ice around. Ice is definitely the worst thing when you’re trying to walk about.
Unfortunately, as I’m writing this we’re in the grip of a storm. There have been gusting winds of about 90mph over the last couple of days and it’s still howling through the trees. The walks are continuing as normal though. I just have to keep an eye out for flying wheelie-bins etc!
It’s a big Hello to Alfie and Archie this week, who have just started regular walks.
They both enjoy being out and about, so their walks are something they seem to look forward to quite a bit. Luckily the weather has been reasonably good since the new year, so we can go on the grass near their home without totally sinking into it!
Sky has been out for his first walk of the new year today and while we were out, we saw the snowdrops below.
Although it’s only the beginning of January, it’s a good sign that spring is only just around the corner.
Christmas is now over for another year. We didn’t stop for the festive season though, working on the theory our furry friends still want a walk, no matter what day it is. Pepper has been enjoying her walks over the holidays, as you can see from the photo above.
The new year looks set to be a busy one. In a couple of weeks it will be the busiest week for pre-booked walks we’ve ever had. So I just want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy new year and say thanks for your business over the last 12 months. Hopefully we’ll meet even more furry friends and their owners over the next 12.
As winter gets closer it’s also getting colder outside. Sky is an ex-racing greyhound and he feels the chill a bit, so he’s been out wearing his camo coat this week.
It’s definitely warm. I just wish I could find one to fit me too!
The weather has been ok this week. Just a bit cold. It’s been nice to see some sunshine though. Here’s the lake at Wingerworth, with the Smithy Pond pub in the background.
Pepper moved house a few weeks ago, so we’ve had to find some new places to go for her walks. The first walk we tried, along a footpath beside a field, was ok when it was dry, but got very muddy after any rain. So after spotting another path last week, we ended up on top of this very steep hill at Carlton-in-Lindrick.
Despite heavy rain and localised flooding over the last few days, I’m pleased to be able to report that all our walks are currently taking place as usual.
If your dog walker hasn’t turned up because of the rain, you can switch to Andy Walks today by calling 07837 306824 to book future walks with us.
Arthur & Lincoln have been out for walks recently and seem to be enjoying it. If your dog needs a walk too then give me a call on 07837 306824.
Otis has started his walks again after having a break for the summer. He always enjoys his hour in the local country park and the recent sunny weather has helped a lot.
