September 26th – I nipped over to Burntwood to get some shopping in after work. On the way, I passed through Chasewater.
Near the top of the dam I saw an older chap with a bicycle trailer, containing a handsome, elderly brown and white collie dog. When your old mate cant walk so far, but still loves the fresh air and a change of scene, you do what you can.
In this case it was saddle up the bike, get a trailer, put some old carpet in it for comfort, and use it as a chariot.
A lovely sight; two old friends out for a constitutional – not unlike the two boater dogs I spotted on my return at Anglesey Basin. I think they’d had a falling out as they seemed to be studiously ignoring each other…
