What do we do on a day off – Take the dogs out of course!!

Helen, James, Savannah and India decided to enjoy the sunny weather on Saturday 24th March 2012.  We know we have excellent staff who will care for the boarding dogs and cats in our absence, so now we have to decide where to go?

Sunny Hunny.  Glorious Hunstanton.  I have a puppy springer spaniel called Summer, she is 9 months old and I wanted to take her to the beach before April, when dogs are banned from certain areas of the sand.  Below is the link to use which shows you the map of Hunstanton beach and which parts dogs are allowed on.

We also decided to take our old Labrador, Hector who is 11 1/2 years old. We arrived early in the morning to Old Hunstanton beach, and almost had the beach to ourselves.  The dogs loved the beach and like a typical springer, Summer was straight in the water and chasing the seagulls.  She is not trustworthy enough to let off the lead yet.  She will come back …….eventually!!  after lengthy investigations, and jumping up all passers by.  So she was on the lead at all times.  As I anticipated she was sooo excited. 

After our girls playing and the dogs running about, we walked into Hunstanton for fish and chips, then the girls had a ride in the fair, then it was the long walk back.

I have never seen either dog so tired, they slept ALL the way home and all evening.  A succesful day had by all.
