Dixie dog went on holiday

This is the first holiday Dixie has been on since we have had her, and so I decided that I would share some of the fun she had and the places she went while we were in the Oban area. 

For all she has come on massively in the six months we have had her one thing I notice with her is when she is an area she does not know, or on a walk she has not been on before she tends to walk behind us, once she gets use to an area she will wander away and explore a bit more.

loved the green colour of this seaweed when the tide was out at Ganavan

an evening walk with DD2 and her dog Jack at Ganavan, this is where Dixie picked up her ticks.

Sadly she did end up picking up ticks at Ganavan that required a visit to the vet to remove seven off them and have treatment to hopefully prevent many more.

These pictures are from one of the places we went to quite a few times, Duffstaffnage Castle in Dunbeg. It was ideal as it had wooded areas to provide some shade, rough ground for exploring by her, some beach bits to play in the water,  toilets and a shop that sold ice cream.

We went with family to Castle Stalker at Appin one day and for a walk along the cycle path.

On the way back from Appin we stopped at Sutherland's Grove and explored the pathways.

she got on very well with the granddaughter and the two of them had lots of cuddles.
