Perhaps he took to heart my last posting bemoaning my inability to take a decent picture of him. The next photo actually shows the reality of the situation. He didn't want to be seen anywhere near me, preferring the lonesome dog look.
This aside, we had a grand time in the Lakes. The weather was kind enough, we managed lots of walks and runs, and Horatio had lots of friends in the house to entertain him (thanks Rosie, Tilly & Sophie!) Best recommendation? Pavey Ark in Langdale is an easy morning jaunt with a jaw-dropping view to reward at the top. My nephew Sam enjoyed the amble in his tweed cap and walking stick. No walk is complete in the Lakes without a pint in the local pub afterwards. I was delighted to frequent so many and that Horatio was allowed in too. Hurray for equal rights!!
