This one's for Sid

I was opin to do a blog this week about my oliday at the farm but we is avin some issues wiv de pictures and so I phink I do that one nex week.

This week I am doin a blog specially for my friend Sid, who is a catahoula who lives in Chicago in the USA. Despite his name, Sid is a dog and not a hoola hoopin cat. We talks quite often and we is alway comparin notes on where we lives. I live in a small villij in England and Sid lives a in a great big city on the ovver side of a great big sea. The other week I showed Sid some pictures of Headley Heath where I do like to go walkin. He was very excitd to see it and so today I toook dad an Lola up there for a walk and we ave done some videos and some piktures of it.

We always starts our walk on the top path. Ere it is, wiv me on it..

Then we go to the "post" office to do our pee-mail...

Juss after this, there is a rilly steep path and you ave to use your brakes a bit. Lola will demonstrate for you....

When we get to the fork in the road, we waits for Dad an e telled us which way to go...

From the top of the hill, you can see the ovver side and kno which way to go....but also how far it is for our little legs...

Then we does walk down a bit an up a bit and we gets to a flat bit. In summer there is green stuff but in winter it do be a bit brown...but we can see where we are goin..

But, ow to get down? Well, ere it is...

We ave to eventually go up the hill, but the sun was out and Lola did stop and wait for me

At the top of the hill, is very confusin and we needs a map..

And the walk goes on an a dog's work is never done...

...but every now and agin we get a nice treat...

...and we can stop and ave a drink in the troughs wot they leave out for the cows what live on the heath...

This is what they look like....we didn't se im today but we ave met him on other days. He not as scary as e look...

...but we ave to be careful cos in places it do get muddy...

...and this week there was a pond wot was not ere before...

At the end, Dad keeps is eye on us cos is easy to lose in the undergrowf

...and every walk ends up back at the car park...

We had a really good walk and I ope that Sid enjoys seein bout life ere in the country. Wooofs for you Sid.

  9. Looks like Headley Heath is a Border Paradise! Does it have rodents? We love places with weasels and squirrels and rats ands chipmunks!

    You guys look like you can hold your own with any critter you come across!

  10. Heddwyn here, I am from Delaware and just a baby so Mom will not let me off lead just yet. BUT I think I would be REALLY scared of that big shaggy beast with the horns. Mom thinks he is cool and almost wants to trade me in for him if I do not stop digging for voles. GO Figure.
