Mistress has told me I need more exercise!  I probably do but I think she's off on one of her obsessive missions to shape up herself rather than me.  Wonder how long it will last this time?
As for me I'm in the dog house, have been for some months now since I did a silly thing & ran away with a ball.  I was missing hours & very damp & shaky when I was found so I suppose it's all my fault but they won't let me near a ball anymore.
On a positive note we spent a few days at Forest Holidays Sherwood Pines. Robin Hood country.  I was able to walk & run off the lead for miles with my mate Diesel.
Mistress & young mistress (Diesels mistress) spent the evenings in a hot tub.  Never did get my head around that one - neither did Master or young mistress's boyfriend!  I could have got my head around chasing the squirrels though if they'd let me.

Somewhere different

That's where we went today!  Parked the car near The Watermill at Ings.  Sure I heard it was dog friendly but they didn't take me there!  In fact we crossed the main road & went up a lane past the Ings Mill Caravan Park.  We kept going up before turning on to a bridle path that took us across several fields of sheep where I was kept on a lead.  Apart from one when I found a dead rabbit to eat & of course I will not go back to mistress until I have finished. She left me so I had to be quick & play catch up!
Eventually we got to an enclosed bridle path signposted Kentmere Hall.  The views were pretty impressive & of course Pika & I had freedom to run.
We had a steep stony path to walk down after we had passed some new barn conversions.  Once again mistress thinks it would be cool to live in the countryside.  If there's lots of fields I can run about in then I agree with her.

Soggy Doggy

That was me.  Very damp indeed.  It tipped it down for the last half mile of our walk back from up the "noddle"  Yewbarrow for non locals. I class myself as a local now, we've been to Witherslack so many times I think it is mistresses second home!  The views were good as the sun was out on the top.  The Kent Estuary was clear as was Ingleborough in the distance.  The school children have shelters built in the woods on the way up where they have outdoor lessons.  Mistress says it must be great to have lessons on the outdoors in the outdoors!  Whatever that means!
Of the course she didn't think to get her phone camera out so no pictures & the ones she took up there last year can't be found!! Still no doubt we'll go up there again sometime.
There are a couple of photos of me taken yesterday on the playing field near home.

I found a ball which I refused to give up until after I had been in the stream for a lie down

Quick update

How beautiful are these?
Mistresses friend planted these as a welcome to her house.

We went for a walk through the woods to the north of Witherslack &ended up in this meadow.  Lots of good smells & space for me to run around.  So I did!!

This is the view to Pool Bank.  Two rather nice houses for sale but mistress they were out of her price range.  Pity, I could live next to a field like this no problem.

Look!  Plenty of room to run!

So we're back to blog.  When I'm not catching up on my sleep that is.  It's a dogs life you know.

Sadly mistresses friend's husband passed away very suddenly a few weeks ago so we haven't been able to blog as had been planned but hopefully we can resume soon with photos.  Blogger is being a pain & mistresses computer doesn't like blogger but the photos are on that not this one belonging to young master so she has to work out what she will do.  Me - I just do what I'm told -most of the time anyway!  I did manage to lose my nose halter in the woods & it hasn't been replaced but then I haven't tried to pull mistress over lately either.

Rain, rain go away

I really am not keen on walking in the rain. Especially when accompanied by a howling gale. We drove to Chapel House wood near Newby Bridge so there was some respite but I don't like my ears blown around very much. Friend Pika came too & we dried off in front of his open fire (and I chewed his bone).  No pics it was too wet for mistress to even think about taking a camera.

i wonder if..

....... I can post from the mistresses Kindle?  Photos may be a problem but hey I can write!
A lie in tomorrow. Yeah. Young master will take me out with the ball in the morning. Mistress has walked me 2.5 miles the last 3 mornings before work, in the dark,  at a pace.  This morning I registered my protest by repeatedly sitting down.  Didn't work. I was unceremoniously dragged along. I'm sure she's on a mission to get herself fit / lose weight. Hope the master can start walking me more soon if his foot gets better. I think mistress is secretly hoping so too!  Night. Night.
