    A brilliant wee trip. Pebbles is certainly shaping up to being a great hill going, backpacking dog. Lovely photos too.


  2. Are there any words to this post? I just got pictures. What were the millions of dead rabbits? Myxi or been killed by someone? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


    • 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…

    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!)


    • 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!

    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.
