A Birthday Outing


This Sunday it was Leigh's birthday and me and Raven and Crybbe all got to go out for the day with her and Judith to visit Burton Agnes garden. We have been there before but it is always fun to visit and very dog friendly. 


We went to the courtyard cafe for the peeps to enjoy coffee and cake before the woodland walk and saw a sad sight. Some peeps had decided to tie their poor old dog up outside while they sat inside to eat instead of staying together like all the other dog families in the lovely courtyard area.


The poor dog cried and cried. A kind lady spent some time trying to comfort him but his owners just said he always cries when we shut him out at home too! No-one was very happy with his peeps at all.


There are lots of little gardens at Burton Agnes with vegetables, fruit and flowers of all different colours, a sensory garden and giant games gardens too.



Then there is the woodland walk with carved wooden statues and decorations everywhere.




After a good walk round it was time for another rest and another visit to the cafe :-) and then back home for Leigh to enjoy her birthday cake and a cup of tea.


These are some of her presents and the cake - with schnauzers and affenpinschers around it :-)
It was a very good day and we all enjoyed it.



  1. Happy Birthday, Leigh!! It looks like you had a wonderful day!

    -Bart, Ruby and Otto

  3. Can't imagine taking your dog to a dog friendly place and ignoring it....crazy!

    That was a fabulous day out. Love that cake, too.

    Poor old dog, what uncaring owners :-(

  5. Poor old staffie :(

  6. Belated happy birthday Leigh. What a sad day for the poor old dog, horrid owners, they should not be allowed to enjoy their lives in any way :(
    But, happily you all look like you had a great day. Lots of cake, always good. :)
