Hounds on the Appia

Saturday was a lovely day so with our friend Jack and his super duper camera that does everything but popcorn and do dirty tricks we headed out to the Via Appia Antica. Nicky and Nora are not fond of car rides - possibly because they normally end in a session at the vets or boot camp. Walking the two of them can be a bit of a challenge - Nora waddles at an alarming pace as she tracks every smell she finds and Nicky trots like a thoroughbred just waiting to leave his mark. This time they had a real Roman road to race along. And on this walk they saw their first horses - Nora was all for taking them on, Nicky put up a brave show - from a distance.

A rest break near an a bit of Roman history didn't seem to impress either of them. Just another rock to sniff - though some of those smells were awfully old.
