I’ve posted about Minera before (if you’ve missed it, here’s the link). In fact, looking at the pictures from November last year it almost seems like scenes from a different life now. Mainly because Henry is no longer with us and we miss him. I’m sure he’s watching from above shaking his gorgeous head watching the twins’ poor efforts when they play fetch with a ball. He used to be the most ball crazy dog on the planet and even wised up to us referring to it as a *B* in the end ^_^. Henry very much loved getting involved in our little lives and one of his *jobs* was to help get the fire wood in; he then used to get super excited when we lit it and would be dying to run outside to get more wood. Now that log burner season is officially here I miss his excited little face and human-like approach to life x

But I digress. We’re trying to get a bit of variety into our puppy walk routine (and alternate between lead walks starting at our house and fun runs in Erddig) and remembered the old lead mines at Minera. Perfect baby mountains! [If you’re reading this from the States or particularly mountainous countries on the Continent – humour us. There are no proper mountains on this island. But we’re trying. So give us a break).

There we have it. Baby mountains for baby dogs.
PS: the twins are 4 months old today. How time flies!
PPS: all pictures taken by Mr. B [apart from the Henry ones]
PPPS: in the absence of quality sit down time anything qualifies as a monthly roundup nowadays…!? ^_^

    • You definitely should. Don’t stop at the lead mine though, carry on until you get to the top (by the burnt out Farmhouse). You could walk into Llandegla and onto the Horseshoe Pass from there or join the Panoramic Walk towards Llangollen. Definitely worth spending a whole afternoon or even day up there.

    • such a pleasure to be around them Paul :) unless they’re chewing my skirting boards, trashing my flower beds or having an accident in my living room, of course!? ;)
