A well written and humorous book about one man’s travels with an urban dog along the SW Coast Path, mostly living on Heinz soup and Kennomeat! I have read and re-read this light hearted adventure, one of the best as far as easy reading goes this is the type of book that makes you casually wonder if your capable of walking the path yourself, and where you would borrow a dog from if you did decide to do this? The humorous travel book we've been waiting for' DAILY MAIL) In BOOGIE UP THE RIVER, man and dog take to the water to trace the source of the Thames in a siff of the same vintage as Three Men in a Boat.

It gets a bit boring to hear yet again how awful Boogie is but there is also something charming about the inner journey the author travels. I would have liked a bit more about Boogie and his misadventures, but all in all, it was a good read. I laughed out loud, perhaps because I've walked a long distance trail, or perhaps because I walk with a dog, or perhaps, this fella just has a humorous way of seeing things.A light and amusing read, describing the walk of Mark and his borrowed dog Boogie around the South West Coast Path from Minehead to Poole Harbour. Not exactly as Mark had planned, however: this time his companion was to be the delectable Jennifer - but she was held up at the office, and when Boogie was dropped off at the kennels the other dogs complained. Mile Walkies, Mark Wallington, First published by Hutchinson 1986, my edition published by Arrow 1987. The dog is question is small and disreputable and wedded to city life - think Discworld's Gaspode but without the brains.

Mile Walkies' tells of how the author decided to walk from Minehead to Poole, following the coast line through Devon, Cornwell and Dorset. This book was fab because of the humour and for Mark's honesty about the people he met along the way and the things he encountered.Three decades later, I'm chortling over this book at a second-hand book stall and the nice lady in charge lets me have it for free. First they had to survive against all odds as they embarked on a heroic journey up hill and down dale, with rucksacks full of Kennomeat, along Britain's longest coastal footpath - from Somerset to Devon, from Cornwall to Dorset. A gentle meander around the south west peninsular with one man and his dog during the period of time when the rest of England was getting all agitated about a few wind swept sheep farms in the South Atlantic. I really enjoyed this book I didn't realise you had 12 layers of skin on your nose I bet that was really sore. Two books in one, I enjoyed the walk around the South West Coastpath more than the rowing up the Thames river.
