A full day out

Wow. How different our lives are!

A few weeks back walking into town felt like the biggest deal ever – today we smashed that out the water and traveled a few villages over, ate at a cafe, and went for a huge walk ๐Ÿ˜€

I had family come up today to celebrate an early Christmas with us.

We traveled to a village about a 10 minutes’ drive away…I say village, the village itself has maybe twenty houses total hahaha it’s even smaller than our village, and where we went today is on the outskirts so there’s literally five houses tops!

Anyway, there’s the most gorgeous cafe there and, although we’d never been, it looked beautiful and the cakes looked amaaazing ๐Ÿ˜‰

The outside space is absolutely beautiful, and is quite large with just a few tables out there. Two are under these gorgeous wooden constructions and ours even had fairy lights on which lit up when our food arrived!!

Whilst we waited for food I did a lot of training with Sasha, lots of focus work. Not only were there two people sat with us that she doesn’t know well at all, but to my right in this photo is a shop where people were coming and going, and to my left were two other families eating.

The food from this place looked INCREDIBLE!!

I didn’t get anything (I’m weird with when I get hungry) but I did have nibbles of various foods and woah it was amazing. Sasha enjoyed a pre-prepared bone as we ate, and then me and her worked on her down stays and focus ๐Ÿ™‚

After everyone had eaten we exchanged presents and then went for a walk along the cliffs and down to the beach. The tide was in this visit so we only had a tiny explore of the beach then followed the cliffs further.

As we were walking back to the car we passed a huge dairy farm and noticed a sign saying pour your own milk for sale.

Guys, it was aย milk vending machine!!

It was this tiny room off the road right by the dairy farm where you could see all the cows! There was a line of bottles, honesty boxes to pay, and the machine you got your milk from – so frickin’ weird!!

Sasha was very patient as we figured out how to work the machine XD



After the drive back to our house we came home to play with Tolly and walk Kasper and Rey (and let Sasha have a nap!), and my family drove to the seasidey town and entertained themselves for an hour.

They picked up some pizzas from our favourite italian restaurant on their drive back to us, and we ate them out in the garden with Sasha and Toller pootling about and doing training ๐Ÿ™‚

Just as we finished it started to drizzle, so we said goodbyes and Happy Christmas’s…and that was our day!

Guys, Sasha was absolutely amazing. She was so well behaved and I couldn’t have done any of this without her. We actually had a proper day out, we ate at a cafe and everything…woah!

(oh also, early Christmas pressie for Sasha – have I shown it off already, her new collar? ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    • Thanks! It was such a huge boost and really helped show us how far we’ve come in just a few months ๐Ÿ™‚ It was so bizarre to see cows literally a few feet away but getting milk from a machine XD

  1. When I got to the milk part of your story… yes, I seriously thought you’d be out in the pasture milking a cow! ๐Ÿ„ Ha ha! What a hoot! A ‘milk machine’!! I wish there were ones here!
    Sasha is turning out to be a saint for you. She is so adorable and I love how she just stares at you and is so attentive to your needs. I’m so glad she’s making a difference in your life and making you happy ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • It was so bizarre!! Just this milk vending machine in this tiny tiny village – and when the milk bottle was full, a label came out saying “unpasteurized milk may contain bacteria that could seriously harm people” HAHAHAHA!

      She is a fantastic dog, absolutely love my little cloud ๐Ÿ™‚
