A Walk Around My Neighbourhood


As the weather is dry again (miracle of miracles), I thought I'd drag mum out & give you a tour of my neighbourhood. Even though I live in a large town, I am lucky that around my house, there are some really good places to walk.

This bit of park is right outside my house, & there are pathways all around my estate for me & the hoomans to go walkies so we are away from the cars. We have had fun exploring & discovering lots of different routes. Mum is much braver when dad is with us though, as she has no sense of direction whatsoever!

This is the park where my dad's little girls like to play when they come at weekends. It has been so rainy that it has been underwater for a few weeks! Looks fairly dry today though.

I never miss the opportunity to have a game of "fetch" while we're out. This is my yellow tennis ball - I'm not so good at giving this back as some of my other fetch toys as it's just so good to chomp on. I found it whilst out on a walk & claimed it as mine!

As a good neighbour & citizen, I think it's important to keep my area tidy & free from litter, so I'm always extra careful to pick up anything I find en route. Tsk, someone's dropped a banana skin, that could be dangerous, better pick it up & eat it.

This is a bit of a funny picture. I'm having a drink out of my current favourite muddy puddle, so you can't really see my head too well. Don't ask me why it tastes beter than water in my bowl, it just does. OK mum?

This lane leads to the fields where I can get off my stupid lead & have a proper run about, hence the rather peeved expression as I just wanted mum to get a shuffle on & get there instead of keep pointing that THING at me!

Finally arrived. The place is called Seven Fields. Any guesses why?! There are supposed to be foxes, squirrels & all kinds of wildlife here, but I haven't seen anything apart from birds & other dogs so far. Maybe they hear me coming & hide. Maybe I'm just too busy having fun to notice.

As you can see, there's LOADS of fields, so plenty of space to have a really good play & use up some of my terrier energy.

First though, I always have to have a sniff about to see who has been here since my last visit. Have to stake my claim you see. Don't want any old riff raff using the fields.

Look how much space there is to run around in - and that's just one field, never mind the other 6!

There's a stream too, but I'm not too sure about water (apart from the lovely muddy puddles), so I haven't ventured in yet. Maybe when it's a bit warmer next year, brr.

I found a great stick while we were out, so I had to drag it home to add to my collection.

Back home now. Sometimes my fat sister, Flakes the Cat, is sat in the upstairs window keeping watch, but not today. Probably too busy stuffing her face while I'm not there to steal her dinner, greedy Miss.

Because of the awful rain we have been having, the garden was getting like a swamp, and I kept trotting LOTS of mud into the house, so mean dad fenced of the lawn until spring. As he pointed out, I do go out 3 times a day for play & walkies, so don't really need to be on the lawn, but I was still a bit fed up. I have managed to break through the fence once, but now security has been tightened up so don't think I'll get another chance unless come up with a very cunning plan!

Anyway, I hope you've enjoyed looking around my stomping ground. Glad I'm back in the warm, as it's raining again!

Wow Oscar,
You have some pretty nice places to go play & romp at. If you want to see some squirrelies, just come to our yard, they are EVERYWHERE!!! Red squirrels, Jack Squirrels, even chipmunks! Once we had a weird squirrel, he was half red, half black, very unusual.
Wirey Hugs!
