Stratford walk blog

Sunday 15th June Star and I had a nice trip over to Stratford upon Avon for a greyhound walk with the Perry Barr RGT. The walk was a new venue because the racecourse where we normally walk was in use by the horses! How very dare they!

The start was at the New Inn Pub, Clifford Chambers a couple of miles outside the town. We parked on the field. The local companion care vets who work at Stratford's Pets at Home also joined us. One of the nice vets cut my nails which were in real need.
About 40 of us were on the walk including dogs I knew such as Milly a lurcher who is in my Saturday doggie class. We set off at 11 down the lane past the church.

Then at the end of the lane before walking down a wet lane past a lovely cottage.

The walk last about 50 minutes including walking in the middle of some corn fields.

The companion care vets had prepared lovely goodie bags for all walkers. A bookmark, bone shaped USB stick, and leaflets but sadly no treats. But I did get a certificate that I can add to my collection.

It was a good walk and we managed to stay dry although my paws got muddy from all the puddles.
