Now I promised Frankie that next time we were going up to Gran and Granpops I would take some piccies of the brand new John Deere Tractors in a dealership we pass. Well these are for Frankies Dad
This one came all the way from Baltimore.
The steps on this thing was just to steep to climb on.
A while later, we get to G&Gs only for me to be met by a rather grumpy Doogle Dog. I think it’s the spring water he drinks, or the high altitude, mind you he doesn’t see any dogs from one week to the next, he thinks he’s a peeps!! I wanted to ask him if he’d like to go to Frankie’s wedding, on second thoughts I don’t think I could put up with him on the flight, sorry Frankie he won't be coming.
Anyways Mom and Dad had a surprise for me; we were to meet up with other members of WELTAF for a walk up the Stiperstones, that’s the hill Gran and Granpops live on. I’ve not been to the top before so was looking forward to it, and meeting dogs the same as me.
Now it don't look to high from here, but let me tell you it is, G&G lives half way up it.
We got to the meeting point to find 13 or 14 WT's, there was so many, we all had a little meet and greet
One of the rules when meeting up for rambles is all dogs must be on leads, so you'll see me with Dad attached to the other end, it helps that way he don't get lost.
Yes that's me, a bum shot.
Wish I could have been on this shot WT's in formation
But look at this, me and me new pal Jenkins, he's into Folk Dancing to, so we had a little jig together
Off we go
This is the view from G&G,'s side, and we are not at the top!
This is the view from the other side.
Now I don't know how mom managed not to get any piccies of the rocks that were on the top. I can only think she was glad we were on the way down, must say she looked a little red in the face! It caught me and dad out, because we thought we would all be going to the top. Dad said next time we come up he will take me to the very top where there is a flat stone. (so more piccies next time)
My first encounter with a cow, I don't think chasing one of them would be to clever
Just one last look at the view before we get back to the meeting point,
in total we did around trip of about five miles and were walking for about two and a half hours!
When we got back to the car just look what was on one of the cars!!!! Me eyes went like dinner plates and the hair on the back of me neck stood up!! Now I like Maggie and Mich the Airedales, wheelie Wednesdays,
maybe I feel safe because we have a bit of water between us, but my pal Eric square dog has a different angle on them, if you want to know why take a look see at his post on them here
I’m sorry to say they put the wheelies up me I just hope mom never brings one into the house!
So I was pleased when we made a sharp exit home.
See Yea George xxx
