I haven't done a Sunday Photo post in quite a while. This is Poppy. She is my mum's dog and we are looking after her for the weekend.
This photo was taken on a walk up on the common between Haldon and Luton. The heather and gorse were in bloom and the views over towards Dartmoor were amazing.
Getting out in the fresh air for an hour was a lovely way to spend the afternoon. It was peaceful and we didn't meet another soul.
We've always said that when the children are a little older, we'll get a dog. So this weekend has been the perfect opportunity for us to test out whether we are ready to commit to getting our own four legged friend yet.
After all, getting a dog is a big commitment. We work from home, so being around isn't an issue. But dogs need walking - lots. Especially the breed of dog we'd like to get. Impulsive days out and weekends away would also need rethinking. But, to be honest, we don't tend to do a lot of those nowadays anyway. And we'd perhaps just need to adapt these to ensure they are dog friendly.
We'd always said we'd get a dog when Ossie starts school - but after this weekend, I think it might be sooner than that!
