Woodbury, Exmouth photos


Photos of our walk: And you can see a seven minute VIDEO by clicking here.

Another great day blessed with good weather after the snow. Ably led by Mike & Jackie Chapman who live down the road, 28 Bassets from all over the West Country (Cotswolds and Frome, Sherborne and Newton Abbot to name but a few) accumulated a mixed bag of other breeds, not forgetting Alfred The Great, the smallest but liveliest terrier amongst The Pack.

Note the prominent Dr Watson before he got stuck up to his . . . hocks in red mud (see below).

The five mile stroll passed very pleasantly with frequent stops to let The Pack play and sniff. Two hounds were missed after a mile but we were told by two following horseman that they were seen back-tracking to the car-park. The errant pair were retrieved and proved to be inseperable (Stanley and Elvis his boyfriend) for the rest of the day. When I expressed mild disapproval to Stanley's owner I was told not to be so old-fashioned. Civil partnerships are all the rage these days (not in Somerset they're not).

Here is Dr Watson after the mud-wallow
(glad I didn't have to clean him up)

Now shall I pick this up or not?


Yes a Basset (Petit Griffon) called Parsley.
