Some pics both of the area we were in in Donegal, and some of the dogs and the cottage.

Sean who owns Con's Cottage (http://www.conscottage.ie) welcomes responsible dog owners.

Leo enjoying the sun on the stoop:

Only Lily could possibly consider this a comfortable place to sleep :rolleyes: :

Some scenery!

I took these while enjoying a drive on my own with the dogs after my partner returned to Dublin as he had meetings (too bad for him!). A stunning cloudless, sunny day.

Heading west on the coast road from Killybegs:

It's great how things look sooo much nicer in the sun. What a picturesque cottage.
I've often heard of people saying they could fall asleep on a rock but never a cavalier sleeping on stone chippings.:eek:
I doubt mine would even walk on that never mind lie down on it:p

It looks really beautiful. The backdrop of the sapphire blue sky behind the cottage in the first picture is like a postcard... and a little cavalier to greet you at the door too.

What a beautiful place to visit! That scenery is lovely, and the cottage looks very sweet and cozy. The dogs look very relaxed. :)

Oh gorgeous photos Karlin - lovely to see the dogs looking so happy and contented.

What a beautiful area - looks like you were lucky with the weather too. Sorry to hear that the OH had to go back to Dublin for meetings, but hope you had some good days together.

All the dogs look so happy and relaxed. The scenery looks stunning. That little beach in the first picture looks perfect for the dogs to run around.

Yes Lily is a law unto herself. She is like a little tank, and pretty indestructible. :rolleyes:

We were spoilt for choice for beaches. The best we went to on our first day -- it was about a mile across and maybe a quarter of a mile deep and we were the ONLY people there on another cloudless day.

A private beach! That's a dream come true. How warm was the temperature during the day?

Not very warm as it was March! We were in fleeces -- but the sun helped keep things warmer. At night it dropped below zero and the streams near us had ice still.
