Who Let the Dog Out?

To be completely honest, I wasn't totally sold on getting a puppy. We have a lot to do as it is and she got under my feet to begin with. Today I think was a tipping point in my acceptance and my embrace of Martha, our border terrier. It was a glorious day. Clear sky, sunshine and very still. I just had the youngest two to look after as the older three went on a church trip. Getting our boys to go on even such a modest walk as the one to Mellor Cross from Mellor Golf Club would have been a nightmare three months ago. Today, all I had to say was "let's take Martha out, lads" and they were ready.
So here are the boys and Martha, in the foreground, at one of our local marvels.
What a view, eh?
