The sunlight filtered through the fresh foliage on Dark Lane, dappling the narrow path as Esme and I set out one sunny morning recently.

This is my favourite time of year for dog walking in the countryside. Harvest time.

There are plenty of big questions to ponder as I walk my dog through the Hampshire countryside: Afghanistan, the Budget, global warming and of course, should one play an i-Pod?

WHAT a beautiful spring. It’s got a bit cold lately but the previous month or so has been superb dog walking weather. There has been more of a spring in Esme’s step as the cold ground warms, the countryside wakes up releasing lots of tantalising smells for a canine.

ONE of the unforeseen pleasures of walking Esme through the countryside is the wildlife and particularly birds.

WHAT'S the matter with you people? Yes, you; drivers in the Alresford area who don’t dip your headlights when you see a pedestrian approaching.

We were dressed like a couple of 'nu ravers'. Me in a fluorescent day-glo jacket and Esme with a flashing collar.

ESME is not your typical 18-month-old Jack Russell. For several reasons.

TWO hundred and 20 pounds is a lot of money for most people, certainly for me. It is a lot to spend on a dog. But it is hard to overstate how much value for money Esme has been.
