Thank you. Several people mentioned they would like to do another, so we'll sort out a date perhaps at the end of January or early February if the weather isn't too bad. By then, Ruby should be well on her feet :D

It would be nice to have more girls. We walked with two today at Bristol who would be able to get to this venue. Lola and Pixie sadly couldn't make it yesterday but are definitely up for a future date :-bd

I'll add some photos soon so you can get an idea of the fun to be had.

So glad you enjoyed it and it was lovely to meet you and Max. We will definitely look to organise another group walk, perhaps after Christmas, so watch this space. Equally if you know anywhere else you think would be suitable, anyone is very welcome to suggest a date/time/post code and typically you wouldn't be on your own :ymhug:

That's funny :D
At the walk at Climping we did as a bit last minute with some of the DBARC dogs we were joined by a little puppy, Ted I think, who was there on his holidays, he fitted right in and stayed to have a good splash and paddle with the dogs, who were mainly females, his owners were delighted to have stumbled across us :)

Sorry it's taken so long. Hopefully here is a link to some of the photos we took on the day.

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 3db6a304de

I'm not sure if I've added the link correctly or even if it links to what it's supposed to as I'm a FB dummy. Shout if it doesn't work and I'll have another go :-j
Got OH to test it and sure enough, I'd done it wrong - hope this one works :ymblushing:

Thanks Cat, but the original one didn't :ymblushing: . I edited it, so actually now the 2 links here should work, but then I found editing didn't put the post back onto the New Posts page, so I thought some might miss it :)
