Wafflings from our Paula in Wales
Time For Tea

Not a lot happening here in the Valleys. Lola has become a Laydee so the girls are in purdah until her season finishes, meaning lead only walks until next week at least. It’s so boring not being able to watch them racing about, but don’t want any Beaus trying their luck and following us home to serenade on the doorstep.
The photo is of all three doing their ‘We’re all so well trained’ bit for dinner. Wish they’d behave like that all the time LOL Lola has joined in of her own accord and tries to outdo the other two at being a good girl. They all sit and wait for their name to be called to have dinner and then run to their bowl.
Does anyone else have a musical Bedlington? We’re finding that Lola will whinge and really complain if Finn plays his violin out of tune, it only needs to be a fraction out, so she’s really sharpening up his playing. She also comes running if there’s some nice music on the radio or TV and stands with her head cocked listening, but completely ignores any heavy metal or Rap. I’ve never had a dog with an opinion on music before; Piper’s got plenty of opinions, but not on music.
I’m finding having three dogs a lot different to having just the two. The biggest difference is when someone comes to the door. Now it sounds like the hounds of hell are defending my house, time for some Bark/Speak training I think. I’ve done a bit already and Piper can speak on command, but will have to get the others trained too, so I can at least hear whether it’s the gas meter reader or the electricity man and point him to the right meter.
Keep well, see you soon Love Paula

Thanks Paula, when our door bell rings it is just like a mad house with five for them wanting to get the door first all barking and going crazy. That's trained bedlingtons for you!!

Your dogs always look well behaved-I can't get a picture of mine all sitting at the same time as one always zooms off.

Mac 'howls' to ringtones on mobiles and has been known to reduce passengers to hysterical laughter as he throws his head back and responds to the station announcer in Carlisle station.

We only realised Ed's dislike of bagpipes when watching a friend run in the Edinburgh 10K race. It was funny watching this small dog let out deep heart felt howls, as the bagpipers started.

Off you all go !!!!!!
