Road trip!

Usually I post about Wishbone Wedding’s Adventures…but today I thought I’d post about Peggy’s Adventure.


For those of you who don’t know Peggy, she is our Jack Russell Terrier, who we rescued And is around 7 years old.

Peggy is big sister to my daughter Mina.

As most of  you do Know I am a Veterinary Nurse.  Peggy was brought in to the vets where I work as a stray, found wandering in a train station.

The vets is a busy, 24 hour working hospital and although all of the staff loved her very much and I knew she would be well looked after, I couldn’t help feeling guilty leaving her over the weekend.

I requested to take her home with me to foster over the weekend and let my husband know we’d have a lodger for the weekend and, well… she never left!!!

Peggy literally changed our lives from the moment she came home with me and has remained a huge part of our lives.  I particularly love the bond her and my husband have.

Today we visited Cragside, An extraordinary Victorian country house, gardens and woodlands in the heart of Northumberland.

The house was the first to be lit by hydroelectricity in the world.

Peggy loved the gardens and streams the most and it was easy to see why.

The rock garden is one of the biggest in Europe and it leads you down to the Iron Bridge, which in turn leads to the formal garden.


With over 1000 acres to explore.  Forests, lakes and a labyrinth,  Peggy had an incredibly fun packed day, so much so we have decided to return again this week.


Time to buckle up
