A little bit of everything

I think you'll agree that my Sunday walk this week (round and about the village of Dinnet, on Deeside) had a little bit of everything.
An interesting place to sniff

A chance to bounce along an old railway line

A picturesque view of the River Dee

A paw-refreshing paddle

A scary suspension bridge 

A choice between mud and snow

A pause to pose

An ancient Celtic cross

A loch and some hills

A, er, stuffed mini cow


  1. A great walk, but I'm not sure about the cow. I have been warned about them as my predecessor (a wonderful old Golden Retriever) got too close to a full size cow and it licked him on the nose. He got the biggest fright ever which made my humans laugh!


  2. And a beautiful sky! What a fantastic walk, Bertie, that's one you need to do some more! You were brave on that bridge, mate.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella &Roxy

  3. Great walk Bertie. We were torn between the snow and mud and settled on we'd roll in both. LOL! Love the little cow. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. great walk and photos and it looks sunny! yeah

    urban hounds

  5. MOL MOL Bertie we do have the very same rug!!
    May I pause here to tell you I absolutely love your pose have such a well behaved and adorable terrier tail!! My tail has a mind of its own. I'm thrilled to see some sun for your walk so I know you and Gail must be over the moon!! Great walk
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  6. You certainly go on some wonderful walks, Bertie. Keep up the walking - you may keep Gail from her knitting. (if you really want to, that is) I loved the bicycle seat cover in the previous post...and I think it would be great to see a sweater on you too...but that's just me.
    Winter's coming here soon, so I'll also be getting out my knitting needles.

  7. Bwah bwah - we loved the stuffed mini cow - we want of those !!!!!

  8. What a beautiful walk! As you said, so many interesting things. I'm going to go check out the interesting things you have listed under your header.

  9. That sure is a bit of everything! I like the mini-cow.

  10. Yeppers, a bit of everything. The only thing that was missing was ME!! LOVED your posing picture, so manly!!!


  11. That looks like a very desolate beautiful place to walk where one can gather there thoughts and reflect on their life.
    Thanks for being a friend

  12. You are sooooooo right... the Only thingy missing was a MONSTER in the Loch.

  13. A fantastic walk, Bertie! We wish we could have joined you!

  14. Had I been walking with you (saints be praised!) I would have purchased that mini cow for your garden. Wouldn't it be fun to see her among the flowers? Or up at your Lake place?

    Cheers, Bertie!


  15. Hey Bertie!
    Wow, I totally agree that this was a pawesome walkie! Love that historic cross and all of the water scenes. Thanks for letting me come along with you!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  16. We're glad to see that Gail devotes at least half the weekend to your entertainment. We still think you need a nice sidecar or really big basket for her bike, though, so you can increase your together time.
