    We decided to have a change today and try something a bit more challenging. We used to do lots of mountain walks but haven't for ages. Given that we live in a fairly mountainous region of South East Wales I thought it was a bit lazy not to take advantage of some of the gorgious walks in our area. Also the dogs loved it! But had to go on lead some of the time due to the wildlife..

    Lovely to see some new photos of Dotty and Duke :wub: What a great looking walk you went on and the dogs look like they enjoyed it too. What fantastic views you get from up there! I always feel quite refreshed after a hill walk.

    Brilliant photos :thumbsup:

    My lot are far too interested in sheep as well. It is a real shame as it rather dictates where we go for walks.

    The dogs certainly looked to be having a great time.
