We have arrived in the Haute Pyrenees, a very south-west France location and only an hour and a half’s drive from Spain. We have been here for a week now and only because of the relaxed ambiance of this lovely location and me taking it all in, plus my creature duties have I been remiss in posting any blogs on WordPress or The Facebook. Basically, I have been enjoying myself, in another lovely part of France too much.
We are looking after Charles & Emma’s stately French pile for two months, seen below, whilst they traverse the state of Kerala on their Indian Adventure. My bonus is I have three gorgeous horses to care for, plus four cats and five chooks.
Part of the estate’s outbuildings include these small gated pens which I believe were once hunting dog kennels. Wild boar hunting here has always been a big recreational sport here and many stately homes had their team of dogs for ‘le weekend’ sport as it is now.
