Snuggy only has eyes for Berthold who is visiting from Berlin at the moment so she hasn't been on any big walks this week just playing fetch with her new best buddy:-) So this lunchtime Carol@Wagtime got to stretch her legs with another of her favourite hounds, the delightful Dudley Doodle. Continued below:
We decided to try a new walk from Inverkeithing High St. along the Fife Coastal Path to St David's Harbour. We set off from the Mercat Cross with a short detour into Inglis Vets, where Dudley met the lovely Shirley on reception. She made a big fuss of our Dudders and he was successful in mooching several gravy bones to sustain him during our walk.
Snacks pocketed, we walked down from the Mercat Cross through the back streets of Inverkeithing, past the Rec and a timber yard where we saw a big ship being loaded with timber in the shadow of the Forth Railway Bridge.
Dudley made lots of new human and doggy buddies on the way including the Inverkeithing Monday walkers, Rusty the yorkie, Ollie the lab puppy and the lovely Poppy the whippet/Collie cross (with tiger stripes).
Dudley was in a frisky mood today, I think he is feeling a bit warm - the Scottish summer is hot if you are wearing a big furry coat like our Dudders - so some of the photos are a bit blurred or with bits of Dudley missing. It is fair to say that Dudley is not as big a poser as the Snugster:-) though I think he got the hang of it by the end!
We made it to St David's Harbour where we paused for gravy bones for the canine participant and a Tunnocks Caramel Wafer for Carol@Wagtime (great sustinence for a dog walker! highly recommended).
We then trotted back to Inverkeithing where Dudley was ready for his lunch and a big drink of water.
