Especially exciting was The Brontes and Their Animals Exhibition, running at the Bronte Parsonage Museum, during 2014 , which you can discover more about on my fionaludbrook.com blog.
Never before has an eccentric dog blogging Australian woman been made so welcome as in Yorkshire. The common love of dogs created an instant and special bond, that even led to my being invited inside homes to meet dogs and see the trophies they had won, but also ensured I was rescued, when lost on the moors by a very special chocolate labrador and his dad, who were sufficiently kind as to deliver me to my door, at the neighbouring village Youth Hostel, saving me a long, dark and wet walk to my accomodation!
This post is dedicated to those wonderful dog lovers and owners of Haworth, with the usual thanks for consenting to appear here, as well as to the brown cat, who enjoys posing for the thousands of tourists that make a pilgrimage to Haworth annually, where he willingly hangs about the vicinity of the Bronte Parsonage and Main Street and obliges for the camera or a smooch!
I urge any animal lover to undertake a trip to Haworth and explore Yorkshire as fully as possible. Two weeks or more, rather than three days would be my recommendation!
The hospitality and warmth of the people of Yorkshire and their divine animals is a reception I will cherish as long as I live!
I can't wait to return!
