Hi my doggie pals,
Had a lovely day out at the park surrounding Hardwick Hall. I didn’t see any of their Longhorn rare-breed cattle BUT I did meet some sheep for the first time ever! It was so exciting! Had a staring competition with a lamb and did want to round up some of the sheep but Hum told me I was not a sheep dog and so I had to be kept on my lead. It was a lovely place with walks round fishing ponds and fields to explore. Hum kept going on about how magnificent the view was so your humans might like that aspect too…
We walked up to the Hardwick Hall itself – dogs are not allowed into the Hall but they do have a polite notice and a bowl of water for us to refresh. There is also a nice grassy area at the back of the Hall where there are picnic tables and the stable block has a café and shops. I said ‘hello’ to lots of other dogs also enjoying the day out at Hardwick Hall.
