A walk in the park

This morning DH & I took the dogs out for a gallop. We were walking as I ran yesterday so DH was able to take some photos. We are fortunate to live close to a really beautiful park.

Woodland Park

It is about 20 minutes walk from our home but I normally take the car due to time constraints as I'd rather give the dogs more time to run off the lead.

There is lots of wildlife but luckily so far neither dogs have noticed any of the rabbits.

It is an active conservation area & fallen trees are often left to encourage insects:

So this is our local park where I'm running every other day. I think you'll agree that it's a lovely place to walk/run & I really enjoy going early in the morning or mid afternoon when it's relatively empty.

What a wonderful place to go for dog walks and runs. Your dogs look really happy together (and isn't Oscar growing?!).

We've just bought a crate for Chance and he's really taken to it well. He's happy to be in it when we're out but he also likes to go in it and chill out sometimes when we're all at home.

As always your blog has the most stunning photography of your life / dogs.

Really pleased that Oscar and Annie are running as a pack - you have done a great job with the socialisation.
