    As today was a match day and we got up late (heavy night last night :eek:) we decided to walk a bit further today to avoid the crowds freaking Ely out on the way home. So we went up to Highgate woods for the first time this year.

    Before we left - 'I can haz camera?'

    Gypsy wanted to investigate (don't worry it's not even a foot deep)

    Is it safe Gypsy?

    And Ely's attempt...he's a bit lazy

    I don't wanna look at the camera!

    And I won't bore you with anymore. We ended up being out for 6 hours so I do have quite a few more!

    They're forest fleeces - they keep them nice and warm so that I can torture them by making them stay out in the cold for so long! :p

    It was only about -2/-3 here so not too bad as long as we kept moving and there may have been a hour and a half break in the pub in the middle for us all to refuel and thaw out. :D

    Lovely photos of beautifull dogs:001_tt1:

    We have football crowds too but I use them to my advantage. I walk the show dogs when I know the football crowds will be coming out. I start walking them when I know the majority of the crowds will be gone and gradually build it up intil I walk them as the main crowd are coming along. It gets them used to walking through crowds of peopel which is handy should they ever have to walk in crowded places such as crufts.

    Well I might be biased but I think they're great as a breed - even Ely who everyone calls my special needs dog. :eek: And so many of them need homes. :(

    She was quite confused by the ice - when I called her to come back she almost did a complete bambi with splayed limbs everywhere! :eek: Thnkfully she managed to keep her balance and slide her way off.
