This blog is in memory of our beloved Border Collie Tippy who died on July 28th 2010. Every Sunday over the course of the next few months I will post memories and pictures of her life with us, both as a working farm dog, family pet, best friend and work mate.

Tippy walks the Cleveland way.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been showing you some of the things that Tippy got up to on her holidays/vacations. Of course during ever holiday there was lots of time spent walking but sometimes the whole holiday was one big walkies which we enjoyed so must have been absolutely the best kind of holiday ever for Tippy – as long as there were no cows!
These pictures were taken at the beginning and end of a week spent walking the Cleveland Way in North Yorkshire which is 112 miles long, just imagine how many sniffs there were!
The start of the Cleveland Way.
Just incase you are wondering Vicki was only trying to make Tippy look at the camera and smile and not trying to strangler a it appears in the picture.
At the end...
...and some bits in between.


  1. What a great family adventure!

    Did you really walk 112 miles? Or did you just do part of it? REgardless, you sure earned your dinner at the end of the day....Tippy included!

  2. Yes we walked it all from end to end during the course of a week. The picture of Tippy eating the ice cream was taken on a day off during the same holiday.

  3. What a grand I figure you walked about 16 miles a day...fantastic!
