Walks with Ambi Bambi to Loggerheads

As all Dog lovers/ Dog Owners will know owning a Fur Baby comes with great responsibility. By great responsibility I mean the need to exercise your little one on a regular basis. Having a smaller dog, such as a Cavazu (King Charles Cavalier X ShiTzu) usually means that little legs, as pictured above, becomes exhausted after a slight five minute toddle down the road. 

Usually being the operative word there. Meet Amber, my wonderful little fur baby or as she is known to the family 'Ambi Bambi, Mopatop, escape artist hoo-dini'. Ambi Bambi for short or as my dad sometimes calls her 'the Yorkshire terrorist' I wish I knew how that name came about... as she's A) not a Yorkshire Terrier and B) Has not been involved in any terrorist activity other than holding the household socks for ransom in exchange for treats... Amber enjoys walking, but honestly I feel she walks the equivalent of a doggy marathon every time we take her for a walk. She just has boundless amounts of energy. 

So on a very cold and blustery Winter morning me and Andy decided that the best thing to do was take Amber to Loggerheads. I have been coming here for the occasional family ramble for as long as I can remember. It is honestly a beautiful place that has such a calming effect on me. We usually head to Moel Famau walk to the top, have some hot soup, head back down and then onto Loggerheads for a less strenuous stroll. Having our Fur baby with us meant we took only the Loggerheads route. This place is notoriously muddy, especially for smaller dogs who end up stomach deep in certain areas. Amber hates water but loves mud so we always have a challenge whenever we are required to get her clean after her walk. I can proudly say that she is finding her confidence within the water and managed to have a little adventurous swim which is such a breakthrough for her. 

After a walk up what seems to be never ending steps we finally made it to the top and the view was absolutely stunning. It is such a wonderful place to sit and think, you feel as if you are on top of the world and completely at peace. Life below exists and the stresses continue, but they can't seem to reach you whilst sitting here. After a little while we decided it had gotten too cold and that Amber needed to get home, plus Man United were playing and as all Football Widows know the whole world revolves around those bloody men in red shirts. 

The only thing bad I have to say about this lovely little day out is the issue of parking. On busy days, such as bank holidays the parking is chaos. I know this happens in all places, but I would advise planning your trip for a non busy period or parking further down the road. There isn't much room to turn around if there are no parking spaces and as we found out this can lead to madness during a bank holiday. All in all we had a lovely trip out and got some much needed exercise after the Christmas and New Year period. All in all this is a great place to take the kids or Fur Babies for a cheap day out and a good way to de-stress from the hustle and bustle of daily life. 

Until Next Time
