As 11 o ‘clock approached we all arrived at the car park with flat coats eager for walkies.
As our dogs bounded out of the cars a man with a Flat Coat asked what we were doing here. He was a local and brought his Flat Coat Molly for a walk at Waggoners most days.
They both joined us for Flat Coat mayhem and a new recruit.

11 Flat Coats and one honorary Flattie, a Northern Innuit, churned up the mud, swam, retrieved, bounded through the woods and played for an hour and a half.
Every dog was very well behaved but the prize for the best behaviour went to the two puppies aged around 4 months.

Jack and Grumm could teach the older dogs some behaviour lessons. So after loads of Flat Coat fun it was back to the car park and a group photo. As a reward Vanessa brought every dog sausages which were scattered on the ground and a Flat Coat Feeding Frenzy ensued. By all accounts there was little heard from any dog on the way home.

Attending were, Vanessa and Georgie with Iggy and River, Chris and Chris with Rollo, Gill and Jo Howarth with Pepsi and Jack, newcomer Phil with Molly, Sue Perry with Inkatha and Scarlett, Belinda with Sasuke and Grumm, Murray and Karen with Dexter and Rufus and the honorary Flat Coat with Zannah.

Sounds like a lot of fun. Keep checking the website for more walkies here and other parts of the country.

We can decide on exact walk and pub once everyone has arrived and we see what the weather is like

Please park near the park and we will go to the pub after the walk.
The pub is dog friendly in the village but if we want lunch inside with the dogs it may be a problem.

East Anglian Walkies 05/05/2014

The first walkies in Norwich are over and done with. The weather was nice, no rain but that does not mean none of us got wet.
6 Dogs in total, 3 cancelled last minute. So next walk we should get more.
Anyway all fun today. As usual we had to shout our sorry’s to some other visitors but they did not mind a flatcoat tongue in their face so that was fine too.

Below you will find the Gallery of the photos taken on the walk with some other dogs we have met on the way.
Don’t forget to subscribe to find out when we do the next walkies because we are planning to organise one one the Beach before the big summer holidays.

Do you know any great beaches in Norfolk that are dog friendly? Please comment below.

Taffy’s 5th birthday party was a huge success :-)

muddddlesss!!more puddles!say cheese!!first sight

 

On Saturday 3rd May 20 flatcoats and a selection of honoury flatties gathered at Bowmont Forest outside Kelso for Taffy’s 5th birthday party. Taffs and I enjoyed meeting old and new friends who live both locally and further afield (Dundee and Northumberland!) and for around an hour and a half there was complete chaos! there was a celebration every time someone came across a new puddle, girls driving the boys wild and plenty of mud to keep everyone happy.

Hopefully we can all meet again soon for another walk, I have two more new recruits! of course the main reason this was such a success was because of the brilliant nature of our brilliant breed 🙂
