The day dawned sunny and bright, perfect for Snuggy the collie's long awaited return to her roots in the Scottish Borders. Peebles was our destination and the walk would take in Hamilton Hill and Standalane - 7km. Continued below....
We walked out of Peebles along the Tweed, stopping for the mini Wagtimers to play at the swing park and the Snugster to have a game of ball. Then we climbed through the golf course - avoiding the very grumpy golfers!
Quickly we were out in open countryside, passing some Highland cows on the way. We encountered a few stiles which Snuggy navigated very well by going round or under, so her human didn't have to carry her over them.
At the top of the hill we found the perfect spot for lunch. The oldies had a rest while the mini Wagtimers and the Snugster played - finding a mini frog in a boggy corner of the field, which caused great fascination. Despite the mini Wagtimers trying to entice Snuggy with a giant stick (well branch really), she was still focused on her ball. Not surprisingly the minis and Snuggy were tired at the end of our lunchbreak and wanted a sit/lie down when the grown ups decided it was time to move!
We then headed off across the open hillside passing lots of sheep and lambs. Snuggy chose to ignore them but was put safely on the lead anyway.
The views of Peebles in the valley below were stunning!
We returned to Wagtime Borders HQ for tea & cake for the humans and treats for Snuggy. Both dog and wean slept curled up together all the way back to Fife:-) Another great day out for Wagtime on Tour!
