Choo Choo!

Having a border collie means lots and lots of walking for all of us, we try as much as possible to include Dave in everything we do. We are always looking for new places to visit that are dog friendly so when a work colleague told me about a mini stream train that we could take Dave on, we were there.


We headed off to Rudyard lake stream railway, and when we saw the little stream train I don’t know if Dave or Jamie was more excited. With our tails wagging we jumped aboard and all jumped when the whistle blew.



What is not to love about these two! Dave Spent the whole trip with his head out of the carriage enjoying the breeze. The ride was about 10 minutes either way, and you can get straight back on the train or jump off and walk around the lake.


With the lake looking so beautiful and the weather being warm for the first time in weeks we decided to walk around the lake. However Dave had other thoughts and dived straight in to cool off and play.


Dave having a swim, this dog makes me laugh so so much, he started swimming lengths for about 20 minutes before jumping out and using me as a towel.

WP_20150817_2089After nearly a two hour walk around the lake we decided to get the train back, both my boys were just as excited the second time.


All the staff were extremely friendly and were happy to pose for everybody’s photos and stop to talk to the children and anybody who had questions.

We were exhausted by the end of the day and extremely dirty, but there was certainly smiles all round and a little nap on the sofa when we got home.
