On Sunday we went with my in laws to Sherwood Pines, we haven't been here for quite a while so it was lovely to come back. The last time we came we got a bit lost as its such a huge place and we were starting to get a bit worried as we hadn't seen another soul for about two hours. Then out of the forest and onto the path stepped a huge stag closely followed by two female dear. It was a beautiful moment but also a little scary as they were quite close and much larger when you are so close to them. My in laws brought their two dogs along too, they have a German Shepard called Petra and an Irish Jack Russell puppy called Paddy. Our Jack Russell Tallulah is already friends with Petra but this was the first time that she had met Paddy. Que lots of barking! Still, after a while they got on quite well and were very well behaved. Its sweet how the dogs are so protective over the kids, if one of them runs a little bit ahead all the dogs get a bit restless and try to chase them and get them back. They like to be able to keep us all together. Especially Petra! The rain managed just to stay off and we had a nice walk finished with a big play in the playground.
