Friday afternoon the samoyeds and I went for 6 mile walk around the army training ground that runs from Farnborough airfield to Church Crookam and up to Upper Hale. It has quiet paths through pine trees, a high escapement edge with a ancient fort that over looks the airfield. We saw some lizards and adders (in fact Finn walked right over one of them - I better find out the first aid for a adder bite on a dog, I don't fancy carrying a 70lb dog 5 miles home.
Saturday we did the same thing but my eldest came with us, it was a lovely warm day, so warm the dogs swam in a sandy pond on the edge of the water catchment area and now I have two yellow samoyeds and a house full of sand!
Sunday the kids came for a walk that we found in a small book of walks around Farnham. We started from the railway station at Bentley just off the A31. Six miles later (and one very nice pint of beer) we got back, hardly any distance on road, lots of paths across fields. Of course the fences have stiles and all of these did not have dog holes, so I had to lift both dogs over them..
Now it is raining - oh well back to work
