Coffee, Cakes and more Mini Schnauzers

Can you see me and Trilby at the back hiding by the table? On Saturday it was such a lovely sunny day for the first time in ages that we went out for a coffee to a village near us called South Milford. They used to have a tea garden - a garden where you could sit under the trees and enjoy tea and cakes - and dogs were allowed too! But the terrible wet weather this year meant they couldn't keep going so the tea garden has gone - but the peeps who ran it now do tea or coffee and cakes at the village Post Office and dogs can sit outside - so we did!

Leigh had a big slice of chocolate cake and Judith had fruit cake served with local cheese:

Me and Trilby would have liked to try them both but we were not allowed as chocolate is bad for dogs and so are raisins..we did get a morsel of cheese and biscuit though :-)

As well as cakes the shop sells fruit and vegetables from a stall outside.

and the post box is in the wall!

After refreshments we went back to our own village and stopped for a stroll on the green and who should we meet but 2 more mini schnauzers who live in our village too:

Here they are saying hello to me.

Their names are Millie and Monty

That's Millie at the front and Monty behind her. They were finding the day very hot :-)

We had a good sniff and nose about and then Trilby and me said goodbye to Millie.
Maybe we will meet them again another day.


  1. Ooooh, Susie-Belle is drooling, she fancies a piece of that cake - no, no choccy for you Susie-Belle poppet.

    Looks like a lovely day out and so much sun, how lovely it is to see the sun shine over England xx

  2. There's someting about meting others of one's own breed that's just SPECIAL!! We love meeting other rotties :-)

    -Bart and Ruby

    Glad your weather has brightened!

  3. You know we meant "meeting", right?

  4. How did you concentrate with all those treats around?!? Looks like you made some great new friends too!

  5. Oh I wish I lived in a village. It looks idyllic... sitting outside in the sunshine with lovely tea and cakes and lovely blue and white crockery and gingham tablecloths. Meeting other doggies on the village green.
    Millie and Monty do look hot, bless them. I hope you meet them again.

  6. Aw, I'm glad you all had such a lovely day out, it looks like a gorgous little village, a bit like Southwick that I just blogged about. Well done for being clever and knowing not to have chocolate or raisens, my stevie pup just doesnt seem to believe this rule and tries her best to eat them, but we always say "NO!!!" :D xxx

  7. We're glad those people have been able to move their business somewhere else. Maybe the garden will dry out and you can enjoy it again.

    Looks like a wonderful day out.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  8. Oooh those goodies look just so yummy! We're glad you were able to find those very kind folks who let dogs sit near their delectables. And new schnauzer furiends! Well this was just the perfect day, wasn't it?
    Your furbuddies,
    Joules & Prescott
