March was quite busy, for what is still really a winter month up here on the high moor. Several couples came in succession to walk the moors, all well prepared with warm coats and wellies and armfuls of old towels for their dogs.
We are popular with dog owners as we don't charge extra for their 4 legged friends. We have recently had visits from a beautiful German Shepherd, a Collie/Lab cross (nice mix) a Jack Russell and a lively Spaniel (not all at the same time fortunately) who were all very well behaved and their owners took care of our floors and furnishings by bringing sheets and/or crates to use for their bedraggled dogs after a day on the moor - we really appreciate the care people take.
Our own dogs were banned from our bedroom this month, which is the last room in the house to lose it's 1980's woodchip wallpaper; and now the floorboards no longer bounce...we discovered that we had to have more of a rebuild than a redecoration!
Picture below is of the dogs testing out the new carpet for comfort!
