The poor pooch looks so miserable in the photos... Five days alone on the mountain, cold and hungry... It was lucky to have run across you, guys. So heart-warming to know that one little furry friend has found its way back home.

Many thanks BlackPanther! :D It :wink: did make us feel good to have saved the poor dug! :wink:

Excellent effort by all three of you but is it just me or is Marley not looking too impressed at the arrival of your new companion!!! :lol: :lol:


Really hope I bump into you guys on the hills one day so I can share my treats with you- :D :D

Cheers Pollyh33! :D Marley certainly was glad to say goodbye...I think it was purely the fact we had given the rescued dug Marley's treats! :lol: I am sure we will bump into each other at some point and we look forward to your treats! :D

That's the second time tonight I've had a tear in my eye over a walk report.....whats going on????? :?
Anyway, well done to the wee man for bagging his 35 munro and for rescuing the poor wee mutt, the owners must have been chuffed to bits to get him back after all that time :D :D :D
