Wet June

Hi Folks sorry its been a while but I have been a bit unwell with a sore back so have been taking it easy while the back recovers.

Dad has now given me the all clear so its back on the fells again next week.

 He informs me  the maps  are almost ready so  hopefully we should have the first walks appearing at the end of July

It's been very wet here in the lakes for  June not that the rain really bother's me unlike you stupid human's I'm built for all weathers.

On Friday 22 we had a months rainfall in 24 hours causing some flooding plus a couple of big landslides up in Whinlatter forests one of the slides has now shut the path on one of my walks lets hope they get it open again soon,

Talking of closed paths work has started on the new path along Newlands beck .The path which starts from the bridge at little Braithwaite was damaged in the 2009 floods.

The work is due to take 3 months this is really good news as its a excellant way of viewing the stunning newlands valley and a good route for us dogs as the beck is great for swimming .

We have had one or two nice days this is Derwent lake in Keswick it had been a nice afternoon so dad took me for a paddle .

As promised here is one of my video's I do like to have a dig the deeper the hole the better this is just outside the village on the side of Barrow Dad had stopped to send a text to some one so I entertained myself with a spot of digging.

Mainly cloudy with showers on and off all day one or two brighter spells though these not lasting long winds light in the valleys to moderate on the fells max temp 16 c 61 f

Next week see's more showers and cool temps for the time of year.


  1. Hi there Jess. I spent yesterday afternoon in the greenhouse watching He-one-drags-me and She-who-feeds-me cut down my favourite jungle... it's all gone!
    I thought your video was fun - we'll have to play in our 'we-don't-like-other-dogs' way soon!
    love from Daisy.

    Woof Woof - oh, that's Lassie again.
