Continuing the fun of our walk on Sunday, here's the rest of the photo's.
Wiggle seemed to remember where the river was and after snacking on sheep-poopsnacks, he made his way to the water:
Sofy was also keen to get her paws wet:
Wiggle carried his ball as he explored the river bank:
Waiting for the ball:
Wiggle kept his eye on the ball while Sofy was too busy watching me!
Sun and water:
Having fun, splashing around:
Once Wiggle had the ball back, he kept hold of it:
Back on dry land, walking through the buttercups:
Sofy was running around, searching out more sheep-poopsnacks:
Every walk along the old railway track requires a photo at Wiggle's halt:
Back in the car, two soggy dogs!

After having such a lovely walk last weekend along the old railway track, we went back there this afternoon.
Wiggle didn't hang around, happy to be off-lead for the first time in a week:
We saw rabbits in the field:
Even bouncing bunnies!
Wiggle stopped to sniff, briefly letting go of his tennis ball:
Sofy, always happy to jump up on a bench:
We went into the field so Wiggle went through the dog-flap in the stile:
Sofy was less keen on the dog-flap, so decided to see what other options were available:
Unable to climb over the gate, Sofy tried going through or under, but that wasn't going to work:
One thing for it!
So pleased with herself, Sofy jumped back to me:
The prize for all that effort - a huge field with sheep-poop snacks!
Wiggle was happy, running with his ball:
Wiggle and Sofy, sitting in the sunshine:

When we were at Caen Hill Locks at the weekend we saw a cute little swan family:
But while we were watching them, we saw one little cygnet fall down the slope and into the canal! The baby swan swam around, away from its family:
Realising one baby was missing, one parent went back down the slope:
Parent and baby:
Leading the way:
One giant leap!
That's probably a really, really big slope when you're a little cygnet:
Reunited, all back together again.
We do like a happy ending!

Tweet-Up with Lucyyellowlab, part 2
After our walk at Caen Hill Locks, we went over to show Lucy and her humans Black Dog Halt and Wiggle very kindly shared 'his' halt for a group photo with Stuart:
Lucy and Val:
Wiggle lead the way as we walked along in the rain:
After a week of on-lead walks, Wiggle was very pleased to be offlead for a little while:
Sofy jumped up at the bridge to get a better look at the sheeps in the field:
One of the little lambies, looking much more grown up since we last saw them:
Lucy managed to get mucky (the sign of a good walk, apparently!):
Sofy was busy watching the sheeps:
Cute little sheepy family:
For the first time, Wiggle had decided to wander into the muddy bog along the track and got himself mucky but we took a detour across the field and found the river:
Sofy enjoyed splashing around:
Wiggle was getting cleaner:
Fun in the water:
Watching Wiggle and Sofy enjoy the river, now that we know how to get to it, we'll definitely be taking that detour across the field again:
Wet, but a whole lot cleaner!
