    On Sunday I took Zara on an adventure, we got a bus to the destination and she had a good run about before being able to play in the River Clyde.

    Throw the stone mum!

    I love this one and the splashes off her tail.

    this pic was taken after she stuck her head under the water to get a stone. lol

    She was happily playing in the water and all of a sudden a boxer came out of know where, I thought oh no as Zara had previously been attacked with a staffy X boxer and she didn't like them much as a result.
    However they had a good sniff and the boxer went into the water for a swim and then another boxer came over and about a few mins later their owner. I was going to allow Zara to play in the water with the boxers. Until the owner told me they had been chased by cows with calves and he had to let them both of leash to get away from them. One had just had an OP. Cows appeared right next to him and i had to put Zara on the leash and I know she would chase them, so she didn't get to play with them after all, which was a shame.

    Most owners see us and avoid us like the plague, so she doesn’t get to play with many dogs.
    Here are the two boxer boys that we met

    This poor youngster had previously just had an OP, I’m assuming for hip replacement. He was meant to get gentle exercise and wasn't allowed to run. However as a result of the cows chasing them his owner had to let him of leash. The poor boy was limping.

    Looks lovely there, where abouts at the Clyde is it? I live at Uddingston but the water is a bit more rapid, take it it is upstream a little more?

    Some great pics btw, love the last one.

    Where the old steelworks are ?

    I have just been taking Trigger to Strathclyde Park, Drumpellier etc but they are always so busy.

    Will take a drive up but doubt Trigger will be as happy as those other boxers to have a dip:D

    I haven't got a clue lol
    Its near where the old Motherwell college was, if that is any help!

    I prefer going to more excluded areas to walk Zara so she can get a good run and play :)

    Just checked with the hubby, he has grown up round here and it is where the old steelworks are:D

    That's what I am after with Trigger, he gets well socialised when he goes his walks round here but at the weekend would love to take him to open countryside where there are no temptations to jump at:D

    Ye it is a really nice walk to go on, i get bored witht eh same walks so i like to go further a feild.

    Be warned though they are cows about and the ones with the calves with chase you lol


    The farmer who owns the cows was actually talking to me, to cut a long story short he ended up losing one of his eyes as a result of not letting his pet dog of leash to get awaya dn teh cows attacked him. :frown:

    Will definitely keep a watch out for the cows, Trigger is still at the stage where he thinks every living creature exists to play with him:rolleyes:
