Under the trees

It’s turning out to be a funny old week for weather. One minute it’s freezing cold and raining, while  the next it’s blazing sunshine and 30 degrees!

The weather hasn’t bothered Hunter & Tweed though, who are in the photo above, enjoying a bit of shade cast by the trees on the Thoresby Estate.


It was a little bit cooler this morning than it has been earlier in the week, so Sophie enjoyed her walk much more. We  were able to walk a bit further than we have been doing recently and it  wasn’t  quite as tiring for either her or me!

Welcome back Jarvis

It’s been a few weeks since Jarvis had a walk booked, but  today he’s back. Originally he had regular walks while his owner recovered from an operation, but now hejust has an occasional walk when his owners are out. It’s always nice to see him.

A walk in the woods

It’s turning out to be quite hot this week. I can’t believe I’m in anything like the same places I was back in January. It feels like a different planet!

Dogs generally don’t like walking when it’s hot, so the woods on the Thoresby Estate provide some welcome shade for Hunter and Tweed.

Charlie is back

New boy Charlie was out for a walk yesterday afternoon. It was only his second walk with me, but he’s settled into the routine quite well.

Luckily it wasn’t too hot yesterday, so it was comfortable walking. However I’ve had to cut some walks short today because some dogs really do not like the heat.

Growing up

Hunter & Tweed are back after a few weeks break. They always enjoy their lunchtime walks. After not seeing them for about a month it’s amazing how much they’ve grown.


It’s not been a great week for weather this week. It’s the middle of June, the longest day of summer is less than a month away and I’m still wearing waterproof that Scott of the Antarctic would be proud of.

Even Pepper dug out her wooly Christmas jumper!

Otis enjoying the summer

Otis was out and about again last week. He always enjoys his walks but he’s not too keen on rain. So the sunny days down by the lake are perfect for him.

It’s hard to believe this is actually the site of the old Orgreave Collier and coking plant. All of that is long gone now and as part of the site reclamation they created Lake Waverley, which is totally man made. Unfortunately they have started to spoil it again by continuing to build a ridiculously large number of new houses. I can’t help but wonder what all these new residents are going to do for things like schools, doctors and shops etc, none of which seem to have been included in the development so far.

Meet Charlie

This is Charlie, who was out and about on his first walk with us last week. He’s a lively Springer Spaniel who loves being outside and exploring new places.
