Lucy’s Wainwright adventures

It’s a year ago since we took ownership of our Black Labrador puppy Lucy. After the initial wobbles about how a dog would fit into our lives, these were quickly dispelled as she settled in and we wondered how we had survived without a Lucy.

We completed the Wainwrights in January 2015. Those of you who are muttering “what are Wainwrights”, they are a collection of 214 Lakeland mountains. Alfred Wainwright created this list and thousands of people have completed this.

When we said we were getting a dog, words were muttered by friends that Lucy will need to do this. I was up for it but Dave was a flat no. For Dave, he needs a knee replacement and long strenuous walks means days of agony after the walk.

When Lucy was 5 months we took her up her first Wainwright Hallin Fell, this coincidently was our first one too. I would like to say it was planned but just happened we had been to Penrith and needed a walk on the way home.

Lucy loves the mountains and it fills me with utter joy as she runs with her ears flapping.
