Easily one of the prettiest villages in the UK, in the heart of the Cotswolds.
As winter is fast approaching we thought it was about time Millie had a new jumper. We’ve been looking for a red hoody for a while and when we were at Frampton Fair a couple of weekends ago, we spotted exactly what we had in mind.
A friend recently brought Millie some treats back from the US and one of them was the Lickety Stik. Lickety Stiks are a lickable dog treat, which can only be described as a deodorant style bottle with a roller ball and a delicious liquid treat inside (hopefully delicious, I’ve not tried them). I’ve heard of these before, but i’m not sure if you can get them in the UK, comment if anyone knows different.
We went to mine and Millie’s favourite hill on the weekend! – Cleeve Hill in Cheltenham.
Cleeve is such a big, beautiful hill with lots going on and lots of different areas to explore. Millie loves it here, there is so much space for her to run around and chase her ball.
There are several places to park, we like to stop in one of the layby’s just before the golf club. You then walk through a big gate past a large property on your left. From here, you can make your way up the hill along several different paths.
So, we were in Cheltenham on the weekend and needed to take Millie somewhere to get her tired out, so we could walk round town without her pulling too much.
We ended up in Charlton Park, near the lido in Cheltenham, which was quite a decent size for Millie to chase her ball in. This was our first time at this park, which is also a flood area in the winter to stop parts of Cheltenham flooding, but for this trip, it was perfect and dry so Millie didn’t end up getting muddy. There was also plenty of space for her to chase her ball, so she loved it.
The Severn Bore was happening this weekend, so we decided to go and watch, along with the crazy surfers who choose to get in there and surf the wave.
We stopped at a place in Elmore Gloucester, a public footpath that runs through a property where the owners allow people to park (for a small fee) and spectate on their land. We had a great view from on top of the owners docked boat.
It was Millie’s human daddies birthday today so we had some family round, this included Millie’s friend Pacha who is a playful puppy Coton de Tulear. They love to chase each other around and play fight, and Pacha likes to try and nibble on Millie’s big ears, but really they are best of friends.
