    1. Just a paragraph at the beginning Carol, I was a bit lacking in writing enthusiasm! ๐Ÿ˜‚ The rabbits are all dead/dying from mixi. Been like that round here for as long as I can remember. Extra unfortunately for us, is that they drive our dogs absolutely nuts, just sitting there in the middle of paths etc…

      1. Ugh how awful to have so much mixi ๐Ÿ˜ฆ We get some cases where I used to live but not that many fortunately. Haven’t yet seen any in my new area but I’m sure there’ll be some. I have had some baby/young bunnies coming into my garden this year though which I’ve loved. They haven’t eaten anything other than the grass and, because I’m not an enthusiastic lawn mower, I wished they’d bring their mates!

        1. I do find it quite distressing to see tbh, and because they’re so ill the Labrador can catch them too. I suppose the only plus point of that is that she does kill them and put them out of their misery, though we do try not to let her get them in the first place.

  1. Great stuff, love the Pebbles piccys ๐Ÿ˜€
    Always amazed how much outdoor doggy equipment has come on since I had a furry friend. I used to carry all his stuff and he was often cold when we backpacked. He loved the outdoor life and went on all my trips (he actually did close to 100 Munros!)

    1. Hasn’t it just? I think their doggy sleeping bags are just the most amazing things. From the States, nothing like that here yet, but Pebbles has been warm in -5C in hers (wearing her fleecey PJs of course). Panniers help too. They don’t carry their food, just the lighter, bulkier stuff. It helps!

  2. Pebbles just loves it out there with you Chrissie. She is doing great with the panniers by the looks of it. Give me a moody skyline any day. I’m not a sun lover when out walking. Take care………..Andy.

  3. Hi, I’ve kind of stumbled across your website whilst looking for 2nd hand pre-loved Paramo clothing….what a gem of a find!
    We too have a boxer, a 2 year old female rescue called Ella (we lost our previous boxer, another female rescue called Pixie only a few weeks ago to a brain tumour – heartbreaking at the best of times but at only 5??). Life was quite empty without Pixie so we welcomed Ella into our home only 2 weeks ago.
    Love your documented trips, and it has kind of given me the inspiration to look at doing something similar, as we are very fond of the outdoor life and look to get away whenever the opportunity arises.
    Keep up the good work, I have loved what I’ve seen so far.
    All the best,
    Ian

    1. Hi Ian, thanks for that lovely comment – glad you’ve found the blog enjoyable! Sad to hear about you losing a dog so young, it’s heartbreaking isn’t it?
      I’ve grown up with Boxers – mad loons that they are – such loving clowns, great family dogs. Dixie, and now Pebbles too, both took to wild camping with very little fuss and effort, but it can be a touch challenging in awful weather – like torrential rain! ๐Ÿ˜€
      It’s lovely to think that we may have inspired someone in some way!
