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...
