Honeymoon Part 2!!

So onwards in the week, Wednesday was a lazy and late start and a tasty breakfast, and then a short drive to a local reservoir to take the dogs on a long walk, over a huge impressive working bridge and dam, and around some stunning breathtaking scenery. The micro-climate around there was just something else, as it was freezing cold but the sun was out which was normal, but the temperature must have been in minus figures, as the frozen topped streams but running underneath were testament to, so pretty and quite fascinating. We barely saw anyone around so it was so quiet and peaceful, and the dogs had a great time in a brand new place to walk, and were really well behaved, especially around the wild birds, sheep and horses.

After a good few hours rest we had an exciting (well for me!) afternoon planned, with the BEST recommendation ever, to a canine hydrotherapy centre nearby in Devon - Dogchester Hydrotherapy - and the kind owner had managed to fit us into her schedule, which was just great and so helpful. The facilities there were just fantastic all round with a huge heated and ramped pool - and Trudy the owner was just so good with Kiah, getting her perfectly accustomed to the water with no rushing or stress, and it was just the best thing ever to see Kiah starting to really enjoy what was a full hour's worth of swimming.

The rest of the day was really just spent relaxing together on the cottage, with three tired and happy doggies (Yahoo had stayed with friends for the week as he is just getting a bit elderly now) and two tired and happy humans, log fire burning red hot, cosy evening together, ready for another following day, which was to be a day trip and visit to Cornwall...
