Gregory's Swansong

Published: Tuesday, April 11, 2017

This is Gregory’s final Report from Nowhere and is published posthumously.  Sadly, he was killed in an accident with a car in the lane outside his house next morning.

Last time The Maister and I went out in the car we were conducting judging for the Pembrokeshire Tourism / Burns Dog Friendly Tourism Awards.. Interesting for Him but boring for me, although we did manage a walk on the beach at Amroth. 

Today was different.  He collected me in the morning and we drove down to Saundersfoot.  The Maister didn’t seem to know what he was doing but finally he found a place to park by the woods, then we were off!  Four miles of Pembrokeshire Coast Path to Tenby.  Although this doesn’t sound far, steep banks up and down had The Boss burning oil!  We stopped a few times for Him to admire the view, but really he just needed a rest.  Not me though.  I had a smashing time exploring the bushes and fields and I even managed to get on to the beach. (The tide was out so we could have walked to Tenby on the beach but the path was more interesting.) I met lots of people and dogs to make friends with which was brill.  A boy threw a stick for me for a while which I love.

When we got to Tenby, I confess that I did need a rest so we went into a café.  There was no dog-friendly sign but He smuggled me in under a table.  No need to worry; one of the staff spotted me and brought me a bowl of water. Then it was the same all over again, back to Saundersfoot.  I didn’t think The Maister would make it but he did and I was worn out too.  Who wouldn’t be after five hours of running up and down hills? But as Lou Reed put it, “It was A Perfect Day”.
