So from Cumbria we headed south again towards Shrewsbury as we had a date with some rescue dogs. Sadly not to rehome ourselves but for Elaine and I to volunteer with. Finding Furever Homes rescues all sorts of dogs from collie pups to large old greyhounds, basically any hound that needs a home. We spent seven days walking, entertaining and socialising the dogs. I played with many or slept in a spare kennel, fondly called bedrooms on site.
So many beautiful dogs and I hope they all get homes soon…
During a weekend break we also met up with some friends and their hounds. Yorkshire Sculpture Park was the venue for a bimble and sausage break…..
So a couple of weeks that were very much dog based! Time to return to the tour of Britain proper and back on the road we headed north east towards the Yorkshire coast.
Knowing Filey once had a Butlins and was, therefore, a holiday resort we booked into the council campsite for 2 nights. It was initially underwhelming being effectively a car park extension but Filey was very close and is very lovely. Splendid sunshine in fine Filey….
A huge beach, pretty promenade and dog friendly establishments. A big thumbs up for Filey. It’s also close to the Victorian seaside splendor of Scarborough and a meet up with my pal Doof dog.
Dogs on site – at the moment 2 cocker spaniels and me (think all the dogs have gone home for work on monday)
