Spud has never been to a stately home before and Chatsworth House is a bit up-market for a country dog.
Here you can see the garden reflected in an mirror inside the house, complete with yet another statue.
And here you can see Spud, Mr Uphilldowndale and me, along with Spuds attendant school party, who took a bit of a shine to him.
Everywhere we went they came too, Spud liked them as much as they liked him ( I don’t imagine many of them will have a dog as a pet at home.)
They were a large party, but then Chatsworth is a big place and the children were very well behaved.
I bet none of the children leaped into the lily pond, when ‘teacher’ was looking the other way. Naughty Spud
