With our wonderful friends from the Di Ala D'Oro kennel in The Netherlands, we finally arrived- from London- on Wednesday in Ireland! We have hired a beautiful boathouse built over Lake Sheelin, in the lake county of Cavan, for a restful but exploratory break in preparation for us all attending the European Dog Show next week.
We have already explored the lake on our own motorised boat (see picture above)- an experience full of much laughter and mishaps- and have taken the Bracchi to a Nature Reserve which is only a few meters from our door.
The dogs are loving it, there are extensive grounds belonging to the boathouse, so they spend their time playing and resting in the lovely sunshine with which we have been blessed since arrival.
This afternoon we are having a barbecue on one of the boathouse balconies overlooking the lake, and later we will take the dogs to a nearby 800-acre World Heritage forest site for a long , long walk!
This is a truly magical place.
