Dogs in the bush at Bright

I left Penny at home with her other humans over the last few days and went for a holiday at Bright.

However, I didn't forget Penny, and I was on the lookout to see whether it would be a good place for a holiday with a dog.

The first thing I noticed was that dogs don't have to be on lead if you do the Canyon Walk along the Ovens River.

And you don't have to watch out for bike riders!

And the next thing I noticed was that I'd be terrified Penny would fall into the raging river...

I'll have to make sure we visit when the river is not in full flow.

That's great that there aren't any bikers, I know that when we hit the trails that is the biggest issue we run into is the bikers.

Ooh - sounds like a great place! Off-leash in the bush? I'd be there like a shot! And the good thing about having a Wimpy Water Dane is that you never have to worry about your dog straying too close to the water's edge - ha! ha!

ps. have you seen our latest dancing trick: the Chinese Bow? Come over to Honey's blog to check it out!! :-)

Hound Girl, it's great to know there are some places that are reserved for walkers.

What a great photo! Would you consider granting a fellow dog-lover permission to use it in a flyer I am creating? I'm promoting a virtual conversation series that uses a river journey (and negotiating rapids, in particular) as a metaphor for living in these turbulent times.

If you're willing to consider this, please contact me:

Hi, Ben
thanks for asking about the photo. That's fine. There's another one on 13 December 2008 you might like also.
