Wednesday 20th July; Arthur went on his hot date with Howard the basset hound today. We walked to Long Green and through the woodland paths meeting up with a lively springer and elderly female lab.  Arthur loved the pensioner labrador and had his nose firmly up her bottom for most of the time we were walking along the same section of path!  We then said goodbye to the dogs and owners and Arthur with Howard and I continued on into the fields.  The boys did a lot of sniffing and scent marking and every so often had a little play bow with one another. We walked for an hour and slowly made our way back to the car, then it was time for the doggies to say their goodbyes as Arthur went back to work. See attached photo.
