>Anston Stones Wood

>Last Sunday I joined 20 other members of Dearne Valley Ramblers and 2 dogs on the side of the A57 just outside Worksop, and together we walked just over 6 miles in just over 3 hours:

These birds had worked out where and how to shelter from the rain:

This is Ashton, a guide dog that gets a day off when her mom and dad come walking with the Ramblers. She was very dirty, having rolled in nearly every single fertilised farmer’s field we passed:

Penny is a bit more camera shy, so I had to torment her with a dog biscuit, which she got, of course:

The end of our walk:

It was great going out with people again, and we had a good turnout considering it was a wet Sunday morning. You can see the full set of 25 photographs on Webshots here, or here is the screen show:

    >Lacey took the words right out of my mouth – I was going to say gorgeous pictures too! And it's brilliant that Ashton gets a day off and enjoys herself so much.

    >Ashton is such a lovely dog, Teresa, but they're retiring her soon and Sally and Robert don't know that they'll let them keep her or not yet.

    >We all hope so too, but she's afraid of bangs and these dogs share fear, apparently, and it could spook another guide dog that isn't actually afraid of loud noises.
