Dog walking - Mine Woods. Bridge of Allan


The other day the local freesheet, Allanwater News, published a photo of a dead dog to illustrate a feature on some controvery over new paths in the Mine Woods.



That dog was ours, Chas, who passed away some six years ago!





This is our new dog, Miles, walking in Mine Woods. Ok all spaniels look alike - but believe me to their owners they are very individual. For the record all the above photos are of Miles...

Tragedy on the Sheriffmuir reservoir


Back in the winter a deer attempted to cross this frozen reservoir. The ice cracked.
It fell in. By the time a rescue party arrived it was too late.




A week later Miles, my Springer spaniel, took off across the frozen water, and I watched horrified. What to do? He was unharmed.



One of the many animal footprints in the snow...

Silver birch - garden



Sometimes a neighbour's tree adds to the vista from your own garden. This is the case with this Silver birch in the garden next door.
