We've not been up to anything fantastic this week, dawdling around Dawlish and taking a certain mutt to the beach have been the highlights.
It's been too wet and too cold. I thought it was supposed to be May.
As Freya seemed far too interested in the swans on the river Dart last week and wanted to get up close and far too personal, we thought it would be a good idea to introduce her to some that are used to people and dogs.Just like to add that Freya was on her lead at all times around the water birds.
The little town of Dawlish in South Devon has a wide water way that goes straight down the middle and divides the town, ideal for water birds of all description. Their favourite food is lettuce and brown bread. At least that is what the sign said. Although they probably all get a good share of other things that aren't so good for them.
Dawlish is known for it's black swans. They are really native of Australia, brought over to Dawlish by John Nash a guy who was borne in Dawlish and then emigrated to New Zealand.
The swans are known as a pest in Australia, not so in Dawlish, they have been the town's emblem for over 40 years. I promise there is more than one, the rest were asleep and weren't interested in the camera.
It's always a good idea to introduce your pup to new things slowly and always make sure when you do, your pup is under control at all times.
We all know where Freya would rather be, you can see her over on her blog the catflap cavalier.
Lots of running around and even a video.
