Walkies

 This morning we set of early for a morning walk before the forecast rain came down on us.

Come on mum I was ready ages ago!

I love woodland walkies.
We like going for walks in the woods because:
  • It’s shaded in the summer and slightly rain protected in the winter
  • There are lots of pretty plants and wildlife 
  • It is pretty quiet so we can let Riley off the lead
  • There are plenty of sticks to carry around (Riley’s idea)
One of the tracks.
The only downside is that Riley gets full of burrs and seeds.

Well yes they are, this is because after a short while they will start matting especially under your dogs armpits because of their legs moving.
You should also check in-between your dogs paw pads for matting as they can get infected there.
To get them out use your hands or a comb.

Some of Rileys burrs and seeds.

  1. We agree, it's great to get out for some hikes, but we hate all the burrs and leaves and stuff that get stuck on us. We usually get them on our feet and they hurt!

  2. Oh, I hate burrs!! They stick in little Phoebe's hair/fur something awful! She's a Havanese/Maltese mix. But we do love our walks in the woods, just not the burrs!
