Raven and Mabel visit Harewood


My peeps often take us dogs to visit Harewood House as it is a lovely place to explore and very dog friendly. On Sunday our new boy Raven went with our guest ( my daughter) Mabel for a look round as well. Instead of going round the usual route they went for a stroll by the Terrace where they could have coffe and cake and enjoy the view:


       After a snack they wandered round the grounds and had a peek through at the view :



    Mabel got distracted as she loves water and thought she could spy a huge swimming pool !


                                      But it was an ornamental pool and not for swimming :-)


          This is the statue of Orpheus reflected in the pool with Harewood House behind :-)


                                     Raven managed the steep steps up to the terrace very well.


                                          Mabel took the opportunity to have a rest in the sun. 
This was Mabel's last day of her holiday with us and on Monday her peeps came to collect her. She was overjoyed to see them and jumped from one lap to another she was so excited :-) Mabel's family kindly brought some tasty gifts for Judith & Leigh to enjoy from Holland. There were these special syrup waffles:



And these beautiful chocolates so lovely with their decorations - almost too good to eat. Not that we dogs were getting any as these were all strictly for the peeps!



So the house is a bit quieter now with only seven of us dogs - well maybe quieter sometimes :-) We did have a fun time with the relatives coming back - so lovely to see my daughters and grandpups again. But time for a snooze now ;)




  1. Water, not for swimming?! Wow, where are the humans sense of fun! BOL! Looks like a beautiful place, thanks for sharing!

  2. What a wonderful day out, Heardwood House looks so beautiful, Mabel and Raven must have had a fun day but I can't believe that there was no swimming aloud, what is wrong with some peeps?! Love and Licks from your furiend Frank XxxxxxxxX

  3. Looks like a fun place to visit. I'd try swimmin in da ornamental pool too, I used to try to swim in da fountains at UCLA.

  4. That was a lovely day out for Raven and Mabel.
    Mabel will miss you even though she's happy to be going home :)

  5. Quieter with ONLY seven dogs....bwahaahaa!

    Fantastic place to explore AND dog friendly (although we think if they had dog treats is would be a lot friendlier).

    We just discovered that you've disappeared off our reading list BUT you're back on again so we won't miss anything now.

  6. Wow - what a lovely place to visit - not hot enough to swim I think though!! I loved looking at the cakes, waffles and chocys ..... as did mum .....

    It's fun seeing your pups and grand pups come over for visits. So nice that your peeps offer to pup-sit.

  7. Wow! Seven of you guys? That's still a lot for quiet. Hahaha.

    Hey Magic. We've missed you so we just had to check out what's up. Harewood House sounds like an amazing place for dogs. The pictures are beautiful.
