Dog Day Out

The sun was out and Buster was restless so we decided to pack a picnic and go out into the countryside to let him play in water - his favourite pastime (unless its a bath).  We drove up into Teesdale stopping in Middleton-in-Teesdale for a leg stretch.

We stopped at Bowless for our picnic with the intention of walking up to the waterfall at Gibson's Cave.  Unfortunately there had been a landslide so we only got to this tiny one.

Still it allowed Buster to go stone fishing.  We had a bit of a job getting him out of the water, he went home a wet but happy dog.

At last I have been given a date for the removal of my dodgy and ruptured implants.  May the 14th is the big day, I'm told the op will take around 2 hours as its not a straight forward rip-em out and push-em in job.  With luck though I'll be back home by the 17th. I'm not looking forward to the process but for the last few weeks they have given me a bit of trouble so I will be pleased to be rid of them.  When they are done I'm hoping for cupcakes rather than the pancakes I have at the moment.

I've been having a catch-up with your blog Annette, somehow you dropped off my radar. Your grandson looks gorgeous! I hope your surgery goes well later this month. x
