A New local Walk

Mmmm not that local, still have to go in the car to get to it

It's this place called Haughmond Hill

Looks a nice place, plenty of different walks and things to see, we get out the car, this is the first thing I see

They're having a laugh,

 All those woods and us dogs have to hold on to it!!

Mom pulls me over to the sign, to check if it right, this was at the bottom of it, I suppose so us dogs can read it!

If your dog goes to the loo.....
get a stick &  flick.....
Is what we would like you to do!
Thank You!

That's a new one to me!! but mom told me that peeps in some areas are taking their dogs out into the country, using poo bags and instead of carrying them till they find a bin, or get back to the car, they have been tying them on trees to pick them up on the way back, well do they pick them up, not all the time!! so you end up with a poo bag tree, yuk, 

Ok that enough, lets get onto the walk.

We went the route that took us pass the quarry which had a viewpoint looking into it, I tell yea, this is a very big hole!!

The stone goes to make roads

Well that's what it said here!

We carried on, and came across these rocks.

With a sign that had some information about them, don't worry if you can't read it we will be coming back again, I'll take more notice of what they say, this was called the Bardon Geo Trail.

On to one of the viewpoints

Its at this point, I would just like to say its mom that could have done with a stick ; )
The wind started to pick up, yep you got it, me and my fuzz face.

Stick with me (excuse the pun lol!!) it gets better

Even the fuzz on me legs is horizontal!! and its at this point that mom looses it, I mean by laughing. See at the time, I had no idea just what was so funny, I tell yea its a dam good job I can laugh at myself and show you the photo she took!!

The groomer went to town on my ears not a hair inside!

We'll be going back again, we only went around a very small part of it, hopefully next time it won't be so windy!

Thanks to the peeps and furiends that have sent in photos, the birthday bucket at this moment in time is up to 87!!! looks like some of you have not used your vote, don't waste it.
If you have missed the Birthday posts they are at the top of my side bar.

See yea George xxx

♥ Sallie said...

That is such a cool walk! That sign is hysterical! Grab a stick and flick! I'll have to remember that one. :)


Littlemissairgap said...

The 14th shot on your blog ... nice show stack. You could win Crufts with that;-) And a poo bag tree ... such a nice thought :-)))

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! Pawsome Walkie George. Got some photos for your birthday steps ... will put it together n will send you soon. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

♥I am Holly♥ said...

George, that looks like a great place to walk. I would love those rocks!! That sign is too funny and the thought of people hanging poo bags in trees and leaving them...we can imagine that!! We like the Grab a stick and flick one!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

rottrover said...

George! Love those ears!! You look like R from Romping and Rolling in the Rockies :-)

sprinkles said...

I love that sign, never seen one like that before. I take my boys for a walk on a trail near my house. I've never thought to put the poo bag on a tree until I come back round. That would be much nicer than carrying it around!

That picture with your ears up made me smile.

I figured out where to get pictures of steps, now I just need to find someone to help me get the pictures.

WFT Nobby said...

Hi George, what a great looking walk. And I like to think that I might be a wee bit responsible for inspiring your apparent interest in geology!
But boy hasn't it been windy this week. Like you, I have hair free ears at the moment and they have been flapping about all over the place!
Toodle pip!

Patrice said...

We need to knit you a hat to protect you from that wind! The signs were funny. I guess they have to explain EVERYTHING to some peeps. They need a guide book- "Poops for peeps!"

jen said...

I love your ears George:)
Looks like you had another great walk!

Ryker said...

Use enough flicky sticks and all the tree branches will be broken off, that won't look good either! Go figure.
You have very clean pink ears there. Hope you don't mind that I giggled a bit too! That looked like quite a wind!

AND...mum insists on drawing a picture of me on the steps....she will get to it this week! WHAT A GREAT TRIP YOU TAKE WITH YOUR PEEP FRIENDS DEAR ONE....I so wish I could play with you!


Sage said...

That was impressive wind! If you had wings, you could have flown!!

Miss Hillbilly said...

That looks like a great place to walk. I hope that you are careful when you walk. I had a friend once that went to chase a rabbit while we were walking in the woods. It was icy and he hurt himself really bad; and never got better. He is in heaven now because of it. I miss walking with him, so I will look forward to watching you on your walks.

Michelle said...

Getting a stick and flicking it, is a new one to me and I own four dogs!

Rose H (UK) said...

George, whaaa,ha,ha! Your Mom takes the BEST pictures!
I'm glad I wasn't at the bottom of the viewpoint when she needed the stick though....
yuck :o(
(Are you getting excited about your birthday yet?)
Lots of love Auntie Rose xx

julee said...

George, it's always good to have the wind thru your ears huh? Looking good!
Those pictures of the valley below were spectacular!

Wyatt said...

You look good with the wind blowin' your furs!
We want one of those big rocks for our yard....how much do you think it would cost to ship over to Oregon? :)


Two Pitties in the City said...

I love that ear photo! And that walk looks so fun. I think going to places is so much more fun with a dog to accompany.

Boo21's Mom said...

Oh, my gosh! I love the no poo symbol. Have never seen that in the US. We are probably too prudish!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Oh George, that is a great shot of your ears - great catch by the flashy beast operator. That place seems very beautiful for a walk, but poo trees, flicking poos with a stick, signs prohibiting pooing - very strange indeed:) BOL

BOL a poo tree!! Wow that is interesting about getting a stick and flicking the poo when your dog goes to the loo. Mr George we love when you take us on our walks with yall :)

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

We love the scottie ears! What a great walk, maybe you should take a putter next time.

The Black and Tans. said...

George another great walk. We think you should arrange a WELTAF walk you would be an excellent guide.

Now George we are having problems with steps. AS you know we live in a very flat area and we are having to trawl through loads of photos from past adventures looking for steps! We will continue to hunt as we don't want to miss out joining in.

Pat said...

Methinks you should have had a scarf and flying goggles to go with them!

The Thuglets said...

A poo stick..maybe someone got confused when reading Winnie the pooh!

Unknown said...

Is that the latest ear fashion, George???

It seems you've found another interesting place with poo trees to walk!!!

My Mind's Eye said...

Happy Wednesday to you George...
first off you live in a very beautiful country
the vistas in your pictures are breathtaking.

Mom had a big lol at the signs. If the two leggers would use their common sense, these signs would not be necessary!!!

Anyway we enjoyed our walk on your shoulder,
Hugs Madi

Anonymous said...

The "poo solution" sign is a new one on me, as well, and utterly priceless -- love the sound effects and the self-satisfied look on the cartoon fellow: "He shoots, he scores!" Thanks for the laugh.

That sign is just a HOOT! Very educational hike today! And it's a fine dog who can let others get a laugh at his expense - and laugh along with them. We LOVE the Flying Ears :)
