Belhus Woods - Missy's day out.

We went to a fun doggy day at Belhus Woods today.
It was a day in aid of bull terrier rescue, but all dogs were welcome.
Missy thoroughly enjoyed herself - and given when we first adopted her she wasn't too keen on other dogs she did really well, with confining herself to a bout or two of yapping. That quickly ceased when daddy sat on the floor with her, and fed her cheese biscuits :) 

Belhus Woods is local to us, its a beautiful place for a walk, with or without a dog.  We met two friends there, who came back to ours afterwards for coffee and cake. And to pick up a couple of paintings - "Gently Down the Stream" and "after Kahlo's Love Embrace" They had four dogs between them, so we really had a doggy fun filled day.

I took a few pics, so you can enjoy the day with us:

Belhus Woods, the field section

Open field, grass very dry, due to heat.

The fun day stalls with Woods beyond

Go that-a-way, mummy!

We even saw an old fashioned plane fly by!

Missy being a good quiet girl :)

Missy and Paul in the woods

Home, please - I'm getting hot!

Safely belted in for the journey home.

Heat and being good are so tiring!

I hope you enjoyed our little journey through the wood and field .
No doubt some of those tree shots will be making it onto my easel  - and I'm seriously tempted by the one of Paul and Missy too :)

    These moments in contact with nature are divine gifts.
