    Iíve got arthritis but I push myself to walk & move about every day otherwise Iíd end up like a fat blob in a wheelchair, like one sees so many of these days.
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    I also have arthritis and a few other ailments and I do not give up but a dog will walk until it drops if you let it so we have to look after her

    Bracken kicks up a fuss when she wants to go for a walk then runs to the gate to get onto the fields, where she will walk by my side, generally mooch about and sniff every cow and sheep dropping [even eat the odd one or two] the dirty bitch!
    So, I am happily walking along, enjoying the views, saying the odd hello's to the animals, soaking up the bird song, I look back to see where Bracken is.... the lazy bugger has only gone and scampered back home and tucked herself in her bed!

    Almost a daily occurrence these days, mind, she's nearly 90 now in our years so will allow her, her indulgences.
    The best thing about motorhoming? It's harder for relatives to visit a moving target.

    Our dogs are young and fit. But we donít let them run on the road!!! I also use the trailer (minus dogs) to do and do a big shop if we arenít on a driving day.

    You cannot walk an elderly or infirm dog very far. If you have more than one dog it is cruel to leave the infirm one behind as they want to come with you. The best result is to take it, let it walk a while, do its business and get some mental stimulation. Then you can put it in a buggy of some description.

    Let's hope that if Spigot gets too infirm to walk far, he can have the use of a disability scooter, I would hate to think that he was housebound and could not get out.

    I thoroughly agree with that first section, but looking at the proliferation of dog prams, Iím sure there canít be that amount of infirm mutts.

    As to the second paragraph, if I get that bad, there will be a phone call to DIGNITAS.

    I have a dog trailer available for sale also. Looking for a similar price (£80). Reckon about the same size. I bought it for my elderly terrier but bought a larger one because it was offered to me (brand new).

    I'm based in Swindon if anyone is interested?
