Living in New Mills, we often like to have a shopping spree in Marple. They have the Regent Cinema, Spanish tapas and Italian restaurants, amazing green grocers, next door to Gregs teh bakers, plus Scrappies favorite haunt, is Pads Paws and Claws.
Today we did a spot of last minute Christmas shopping in Marple, it was also raining and we had a little dog that needed some exercise. So we decided to have a look around Marple Garden Centre as its so dog friendly and tie that in with a dog walk somewhere in Marple.
We obviously took scrappy in there as they have a huge pet section, he chose a gross looking ham bone (to help clean his teeth) and a little matt to put his food on and water bowl.
His popularity surpassed itself, nearly every child in there was impressed by him, he got patted on the head by various people, and he left the garden centre feeling very important.
We then did a spot of shopping in town, of course calling into pads paws and claws, for some essential doggy things, like 9 little raw hide shoes for him to chew in the evening.
After we went for a very damp, cold wet and muddy little dog walk, starting at Memorial Park Marple then dropping down to Brabyns and back along the canal.
