I went to a wood with the dogs yesterday, it was a gorgeous day and I walked down the beck (stream), and got some really nice photos and video... I thought I'd share some of them with y'all. There was a big storm earlier in the year and there was still a fallen tree across one of the paths and we had some fun with that before heading down to the beck. Gus loved the beck though I was worried he would over tire himself early in the walk (he has a thyroid problem at the moment) and once walking the beck there aren't any shortcuts. Gus looking for the stick after he lost it. I love the way he uses his feet to find the stick and get it into shallow water. The sticks there don't know they are supposed to float! There were quite a few blockages left over from the storm that we had to scramble through. The green tunnel effect was amazing. As you can see not easy to get out once you're walking the beck! The dogs aren't very used to the area so they would rush ahead to look round every corner but then they would hurtle back to me. Gus had a bit of a scare when I scrambled down a slope and Zac being a bold adventurer followed. Poor Gus couldn't face it and we had to go back and find another way. I forget how bold Zac is. I loved the light and shade... Zac's best buddy is Gus though you might not know it from this video. It is no surprise that Zac has a mouldy recall at times when this sort of thing happens! I couldn't blame him and they were having fun and he did sort of come. Zac found a friend... Gus WAS flagging a bit but we were on our way back really by then. Then we realised what local inhabitants we were upsetting, rather horrified we hid in the bushes to make sure they were not permanently disturbed. A few minutes later one of them was back to fish so I guess we hadn't disturbed them too much after all.
