Now then Shaun did you scrap through the double arch bridge number 39? From the footage it looks very much like you were heading for a knock and then there was a crafty bit of editing. If you made it, good on ya.

I used to have a Springer ,she jumped in the river Camal when I went to collect the kids from playschool and came out slime green because the tide was out , you can imagine the smell and the screams from the kids and the state of the car, when we got home all three of them were slime green , take care ❤ x

My Nan used to go out after mooring up at night and go “fishing” with a powerful magnet. She used to find all sorts, mooring stakes, hammers, lock keys (windlass?). Oh and speaking of cool job titles, my grandad worked in the potteries as a, wait for it, a sagger makers bottom knocker. Google that one.

Aaah bless Dillon, RIP sweet little man. You must have such lovely memories of him. Seeing him swimming back to the boat and then the lovely shots of Colin on the towpath with a bowl of warm water tidying him up. Every time he looked up to the camera from the boat he had a look of complete devotion on his little face. What a gem he must have been. ❤️

The Wrekin is an inselberg (or monadnock) ... an isolated hill, knob, ridge, outcrop, or small mountain that rises abruptly from a gently sloping or virtually level surrounding plain. Very cool! I grew up near a monadnock in South Carolina, Glassy Mountain.

I don't often feel homesick for the UK (I'm in the Czech Republic) but seeing the Wrekin and hearing about Market Drayton has made me miss home in Shropshire! The Wrekin is actually a giant who lay down for a rest on his way to London. The smaller hill next to him is his shovel full of soil. Thanks for making me laugh during lockdown! :)

to think that deep cutting was dug by hand and basic tools...must have shifted a few thousand tons of stuff....they also had LENGTHSMEN ON THE RAILWAYS...an old friend was one and had a specific length of the railway to look after.....cannot believe some boaters are just pig ignorant...what was the rush.....especially when they could see you...could just imagination people being rocked and the dinner going flying....

Interesting info - "wharfinger" (owner or keep of a wharf) [could be wrong] but I know that term as relating to those who worked cargo ships [at a wharf] and was translated to "wharfie and/or Watersider" - amazing where terminology originates from. Question - have notice that the canoe is not on roof - ??

Lol poor Dillon, my Collie cross once fell into lock 11E on the Huddersfield narrow when she saw a squirrel on the far side and didn't realise there was a gap. We had to climb down the ladder and manhandle her back out which was not easy.

Hi guys. I just wanted to say this episode of your vlog is by far my favorite! The narrow boat traversing through the deep cuts and the unique bridges is breathtakingly beautiful. I'm from the states and we don't have anything like the canals.
Thank you again, your funny comments, unabashed openness and the beauty of your native land really comes out in your videos.
You are so truly happy, and it comes across...even the big Atlantic pond 😆

Poor Dillon! That did not look pleasant.
Does the jacket actually help the dog float, or is it mainly there to provide a handle to pull him out of the water?

Hi guys! New subbie here, just loving your channel! I have to say, you had me baffled for a little bit at 13:56....thought you were "rocking the boat" until I realized it was a timelapse 🙈😁 I truly enjoy how informative your videos are and love the aerial views. Keep up the great work and may your channel continue to prosper ❤ I'd really love to visit the big Cadbury factory. We have a few varieties of Cadbury chocolate bars here in the US. I like it much better than Hershey chocolate. Take care guys and stay safe...Covid is on the rise again over here.

Watched this for the fortyteenth time and still get a bad case of the giggles when Dillon goes for a dip. And the way his tail was connected to his legs so that as he ran his tail went side to side. Will always be missed for the way he stared at the camera, his tail, and his cheerfulness.

Mickey Finn

Oooh, sideways running with a massive tail wag! Can't wait to see Otis develop his own unique style. Old dog, new dog, oldish boat new boat............ The world is round yet we mostly strive to recover through the plastic and pollution and increasing societal aggression. As a chronic aggoraphobe, you have no idea how you both let me out in my head. Thank you doesn't cover it ;))

Hello fellow Captains. I am really enjoying binge watching your intrepid adventures. Fun and educational too. But I return to this one to ask, would you ever fit a dog boarding ladder ? My boat had a fold down one for people . So a mini version for dog overboard? And train the dog how to unhook it? Maybe a good boathook is all most bargers ( should that be bargees?) need. But what would you say to a Wallace and Gromit style contraption. You could even call it the Super Dooper Fido Scooper? Why not ?

Dillon was such a funny silly pup. He reminds me of my very first dog. He was an English springer mix and was black and white named Bandito.. he lived to 18 amazingly.. I love how Dillon just feels like taking a dip once in a while. I wonder if Otis will be a water lover as well when he gets bigger. I’m actually surprised Dillon didn’t jump after water birds more often.

My first comment after watching all of your videos up to now, and it's obvious Dillon was the one in charge. This is one of my favorites so far, thank you for the smiles and beautiful videos, we sure do enjoy them. Glad the Silver Foxes are okay. I just read that you lost Dillon, hugs to you. (My Boxer was named Dillon, it's been years and I still miss him.) So sorry for your loss. Take good care. ~ From San Antonio, Texas.
