One of the best things about having my dog, Dexter, is the necessity to walk him every day. I’m a pretty nesh person by nature, and although I love loving up here in the Pennines, I’d sooner be looking at the beautiful view out of my window, than braving cold, grey or wet weather – something we get a lot of. I’m not someone to take myself off on a less that gorgeous day, just to wander about. It’s one of the reasons I decided to get a dog, to make me get out and exercise. By hook or by crook, my big black hound needs a good walk everyday, and he doesn’t care what the weather is doing.

I have to confess I was dreading my first proper winter with a grown up dog, but do you know it’s done me the power of good. With the help of the right outdoor clothing, I go off gladly every day for mine and Dexter’s constitutional.

Just look at some of the beautiful things I’ve seen over the last month. Sometimes it may well be bleak, but it’s always beautiful. All these pictures are taken within half a mile of my home. I love Yorkshire!
