Today was another ‘Dougal length’ walk as I am mindful that he is still only a pup and we can’t go too far just yet, eager though he may be! We had a walk around Glenamara Park taking in Birks and Arnison Crag and the weather started off clear enough but there were soon ominous looking clouds around blown in by the strong wind which proved to be a real cold blast.
