Walking by the river each morning is lovely, not so much in the evening at the moment as swarms of midges are around. But first thing every morning ... well after a coffee or two ... it really is the place to be.
After we cross the bridge dogs are allowed off their leads, so each day I am giving little Bella a few minutes of freedom, she loves it.
Although Suky is not so pleased with all the puppy kisses when Bella catches up.
It must seem a long road ahead when you're only a few inches high.
But she's remarkably brave and up for anything.
Back over the river and time to head for home.
Where a cosy bed in the sunshine filled livingroom is waiting.
