This morning I took the dogs for a walk along the River Stour at Cowgrove as I’d had to take Jez to the vet in Wimborne earlier for a cartrophen injection. We’d gone to Wimborne for it as Jez didn’t have a hydro-therapy session this week (they take place in the vets’ Bournemouth branch).
It was a very nice morning, as you can see.
And once Jez got in the river she set about wading around in quite deep water to make up for the lack of her organised session in the water walker.
Max, meanwhile, just wanted to play cone.
As you may have guessed from that last photo I was out in the middle of the river with them. We had been playing there for some time when I turned round and realised that there was a Little Egret perched in a tree close by, watching us.
After spending quite a while in the river we started to walk back to the car. In one of the fields along the way were some Red Devon cattle with their calves.
And that was about it for our walk this morning. Jez still doesn’t feel up to tackling Eye Bridge, so we went straight back to the car.

We had a visitor in our garden: this lovely Common Darter.
