Dog days

Putting together my new walking guide to Ceredigion – which has just been published by Pocket Mountains – took lots of days out and about last year. A summer and autumn spent exploring the best of the county was a joy and it was great news too for our Jack Russell, Bella. I love the book’s artwork by the very talented Vicki Gausden, but do worry that Bella may have been short-changed. A Cardigan corgi there on the cover by Mwnt chapel certainly adds ‘sense of place’, but it seems a bit unfair given that it was a Jack Russell that did the leg work.
