Suzie’s Wilde Walk in the Hangers

Suzie’s Wilde Walk in the Hangers

It’s a very steep climb up to Suzie’s favourite seat in the Hangers. Not the Poet’s Stone this time, and she’s with both dogs. It’s the usual mix of memory, with both guilty sadness and unrepentant happiness, and last week’s “monster” seems to have followed them …

Suzie’s Wilde Walk in Durford Woods

Suzie’s Wilde Walk in Durford Woods

If you go down to the woods today … Suzie and the dogs hear something creepy in Durford Wood. Is it her imagination, listening to a Dennis Wheatley audiobook all week, or is it a real creature? You can find out about this and other horrors; the long jump world record from 1968  and share the first blackberries on Suzie’s birthday. 

Drake, the gun dog champion

Drake, the gun dog champion

Meet Drake, who has represented his country in the “gun dog Olympics”, with top scores two years in a row. Hear him demonstrate his retrieval skills on whistle commands from his handler.

How does Drake stay focused on the job and in touch with over distance, in noisy conditions? Owner and professional gun dog trainer Jason Mayhew explains in this month’s Dogs with Jobs.

Suzie’s Wilde Walk at the Hangers

Suzie’s Wilde Walk at the Hangers

It’s a sunny morning at last and Suzie and Raine revisit the Hangers, which is looking very different from their last muddy visit in early spring. Her attempt to use coarse grass to make an eldrich shriek luckily ends in failure. Finally Suzie ends at the Poet’s Stone and she describes the view for those who struggle to climb that far.
