    On way back from a walk this morning old dog decided she needed to cool off, as she does, only trouble was she got well and truly stuck and I couldn't reach her with out getting stuck myself. Had to link the two leads together, hitch one end over a dodgy looking fence post and carefully slide down the bankrolling on to the leads, built a crisscross of sticks in front of her to stop me sinking so much, grabbed her collar and it took all of my strength to pull her out.
    All the time this was going on she was yelping, the little dog was going frantic to get to her, only to then get stuck herself! Little one got out by herself fairly quickly and decided to stay at the top of the bank and leave me to rescue her friend. We were all plastered in mud by the end of it. :Doh:

    My word exactly. I do sometimes wonder how far I would go to rescue Ellie. I love her dearly but she is a dog with probably another 6 years left, if we are lucky. I would, within reason, risk my life. Is that an oxymoron? :BigGrin:

    What a horrible experience for you both, well done for thinking it through, and not rushing in. Hope you are feeling better must have left you pretty shook up.

    I'm sure you know but the oxymoron bit is 'risk my life' and 'within reason'. Opposites perhaps? or contradiction? :BigGrin:

    The scary thing was that we were in a field with cows and I was worried the racket the dog was making would bring them over. I guess that's why it was so churned up there, because of the cows.
    I took the photos before I realised that she really was stuck, thought it was going to be a funny situation when the doggy bog monster emerged from the depths! She doesn't have full strength in her back legs now, poor old girl is 14 this year.

    Glad that your all alright now, who said Market Harborough is a safe place to live. Know what you mean about the cows, now that would have been scary.

    We are all fine thanks. You might know the path, it goes from the corner of the rugby fields on Northampton Rd up the hill and eventually comes out near the top of East Farndon, the stream they went in is by the second stile.

    The bank is fine Roger, muddy slipy and rather smelly, just as it was before. Would you like me to show it you? You would need to be careful though as you might accidentally on purpose slip down it! :Rofl1:

    Sandra,
    Hope there were no number 2's in that stream, what with all those cows.

    David.
