Darting around Dartmoor: Part 1, Silly names

I love running & smelling stuff, so Dartmoor in Devon is a great place to be! I was lucky enough to go there 2 days in a row recently. The 1st day Owner & I went to a place called Postbridge with Owner's friend Helen. Our car was in a car park in the trees in this picture.

There was the remains of a dead badger near here. I had a lovely roll in it. Owner didn't notice until I didn't go back to her when she called & she sawing all 4 of my legs waggling in the air! There was lots of horse poo to eat too - yum!

Can you see me running up to the tor? Owner & Helen were a lot slower than me! There are some funny names of things on Dartmoor. This tor is called Laughter Tor - it didn't laugh though.

Owner & Helen ate lunch on Laughter Tor & I was running around while they were eating. I came back every now & then to see if they were going to move! It was really hot so I was glad Owner had taken a travel bowl & I could have some water when we weren't near the river. This is me & Helen on Laughter Tor. I had just licked her with my horse poo breath - you can tell she liked it because she's smiling!

From Laughter Tor you can see Bellever Tor which we walked to next - it turns out there were no bells there though.

At the end we walked past a normal bridge & a clapper bridge. The clapper bridge didn't clap - but it was broken.

Darting around Dartmoor: part two coming soon to a blog near you!


  1. This is a lovely bloggie Millie. It duz remind me of when I was 5 months old. We went walking on Row Tor on Dartmoor. I wos running about so much I didn't see a 'stream' and fell off the bank into it! I did have lucky and narrow escape! Think that's where my dislike of water comes from! BOL! Thank you for sharing your walk. Feels like we were with ya! Love your furiend AnnieB
