After a long walk my favourite dog is a large Bordeaux Collie. It makes a change from ‘Hair of the Dog’ brew dog beer and Laika, a fine Russian Imperial Stout named after the first dog to orbit the earth.
We get rolling stones at Brimham rocks and on the East Coast, both great places to take your dog for a walk. Perhaps when you are out walking you already chant like Mick Jagger…………….
‘Baby back, dressed in black
Silver buttons all down her back
High hose, tippy toes
She broke the needle and she can sew
Walking the dog
I’m just a walking the dog
If you don’t know how to do it I’ll show you how to walk the dog
C’mon now c’mon’
