Tuesday And We Have Our Report From Jane In The Sunny Midlands

It is only a little over a week ago since we were holidaying in Suffolk and as you can see from the photos the weather was sublime for November. How things can change! This week we have had torrential rain, gales and it,s cold, cold, cold!!!!!!!!! Not that the gang seem to care one jot though I,m sure they’d rather have the beach for the morning walk,(come to that so would I). It never ceases to amaze me just how adaptable they are, it seems so long as their family are all together they take the change of location all in their stride. One thing I found most annoying last week was the amount of dog owners who still cannot be bothered to pick up after their charges. Southwold is an amazingly dog -friendly place, with few doggie restrictions, how long this will continue if people behave this way remains to be seen. southwold_085

We are wondering if Stella will be coming into season soon, as her coat has turned charcoal grey. If only it were so simple! None of our girls are predictable, Stella herself being 22 months before her first, her daughter Maya a precocious 6 months. It must make it far easier to plan ahead if you can predict which month let alone which week they are going to come into season. No doubt if one comes in the others will follow suit, which at least means it’s over and done all in one go.  Archie continues to do ok, though some of his behaviours are becoming more obsessive and somewhat strange. He southwold_106does however seem quite happy and free from any distress, long may it continue as he is our very special boy. Til the next time, have fun with your woolly ones,

Thank you Jane, I can’t believe it was just a couple of weeks ago when you were away, it looks like mid summer in Southwold. People are really naughty when they don’t pick up after their dogs, you can understand why the councils ban dogs from public places. Pleased to hear Archie is feeling well the medication is certainly helping him.  My two girls are due in season any time, musical dogs begin keeping them away from Parker.

We must try and get to Southwold next year- it looks lovely and so dog friendly.
Glad Archie is still going strong.

Southwold pics are lovely, my family live a short distance away in Kessingland,and Lowerstoft, they love bedlingtons there also, the people go out of there way to come over and say hello to the dogs

Stella sounds like my Amelia, she didn't have her first season until into 21 months....I thought she was an odd one, nice to know she isn't the only one. I too kept looking for signs. The Southwolds look lovely. I think the UK is far more dog friendly than the US...and you're right, what bad manners to not pick up after your dogs! But then sometimes I wonder if manners are passe.
