On the weekend we took Penny and Enrique to Clumber Park, a National Trust property close to my parents' house in Yorkshire. Both dogs had a fine time bolting around through the woods:
Anyway, this walk taught me a very important lesson - I am in desperate need of a pair of Wellington boots. On previous dog-walking excursions I have always worn either my beloved (and battered) French Connection boots:
Or my snuggly chocolate brown Ugg boots:
However, neither pair of boots is exactly up to coping with the sea of mud that is Tatton Park at the moment, so I've decided to invest in a pair of wellies. Now, I'm aware that the chicest option is probably to purchase a pair of classic green Hunter wellies, but hey, I guess I'm not chic, cos I really want a patterned pair. Naturally they have to be in a muted shade of blue, green, brown or cream (cos pretty much every single item of clothing in my wardrobe is in a muted shade of blue, green, brown or cream).
So after extensive googling, here are the options I have come up with:

Cute, eh? Which pair do you like best? Hmm, now I just have to decide which ones I like best :-)
