Week 62: Happy New Year!

It’s cold, really cold, the heath is like a skating rink and Darwin’s loving it. She’s getting used to the ice and seems to enjoy the slippery surface. Best fun of all is to chase a piece of ice across the frozen puddles then crunch it into little pieces. We’ve had some great walks exploring more of the forest over the holidays. Darwin stays closer to us when we’re on a new walk which is nicer than her running off 100 yards in front all the time on the walks she knows. We’ve been exploring the forest between Brockenhurst and Lyndhurst and trying to navigate via the sun and an iphone. We occasionally got a little lost, but not for long. We’ve spotted deer every walk and had to stop Darwin chasing down a venison supper a few times.

New Year was seen in at the Turfs, with Darwin of course. It was good fun and Darwin wasn’t the only four-legged friend celebrating in the pub at the turn of midnight. We’ve also been practising lead walking with Darwin this week as she is staying with relatives shortly whilst we go on holiday and we want her to be on her best behaviour…
