thirsty work

This week the temperature has risen dramatically. That means more cooling down and drink stops on our daily runs. Badger has a medium coat for a border collie and he gets hot. Luckily we have got loads of ponds, streams, canals, and troughs on our routes.
He cannot go past this cow drink without having a swim. It never dries out and is a godsend in the hot weather.
This stream does dry out, and in a few weeks we will have to seek alternative water which is a slight detour off our normal run.

We have three canals. The Erewash, The Nottingham and the Old Stanton Canal

So at this time of the year and through the summer its time to slow up a bit and let Badger take on as much water as he needs.
