Angus set an absolutely blistering pace today, he was like a young pup for the tough walk up to Bow Fell from Great Langdale! The ‘come on’ bark was an almost constant noise and I think he was happy to be out in the sunshine, as was I. He was recognised on Esk Pike today – I think fame is going to his head!
