Wow Julie what a fantastic day at Manchester Sporting Terrier. You must be thrilled to see your pups winning in the show ring! It is such a shame there are no photos but we hope Dot is feeling better, there are lots of heavy colds about! The very best of luck Sunday at Lancashire Sporting Terrier, let’s hope there is no more snow forecasted for the North..
This is Larry on his birthday, they could only have a small pie because of his tummy. Pat
A very happy birthday to Larry from brother Parker. It only seems like yesterday the pups were creating mayhem tearing round the kitchen!
Hello all, well what a week we've had this week looking at all the snow that they have had up north and in South Wales and our Billy not able to any Lamping. We have still been lucky here in North Shropshire we have only had 1/2 inch of snow at most. The morning after we had the covering of snow Jazz and Sapphire couldn't wait to go out for their daily walks .On Saturday morning we went around Colemere for a walk that takes usually takes an hour to do but it took 1 1/2 hours for us because Jazz and Sapphire were having so much fun! On Sunday we went down to Sleap Airfield to see our friend Biggles and to walk the 3 miles around the p erimeter road, there were interesting smells and loads of foot prints left by rabbits, the dogs didn't know which way to turn! We were glad to get back to Biggles's hanger were we parked the car and get home for a nice hot cuppa tea. Although both Jazz and Sapphire had their woolly jumpers and warm coats on they said their paws were a bit chilly.
the picture is of our Sapphire trying to get over a log after Jazz jumped it (i.e. she was chasing him playing) it was taken at Colemere, so for now it’s TTFN from The K9 Marshal Crew
Thank you Ian, we have only a dusting of snow in Oxfordshire but snow showers are expected today. Unfortunately I don’t think we will end up with enough snow to build a snow bedlington!
Cushing's syndrome is a chronic illness that can affect your dog. If left untreated it can rapidly and severely affect your dog's quality of life and can lead to a range of more severe health problems and in certain cases can cause fatal complications. Thanks to Stuart for the link.
Sorry we haven't been in touch for a while. A couple of weeks ago we had a freak electrical storm with a loud clap of thunder and simultaneous flash of lightening at 2 AM. Several homes in the village had damage to electrical items, unfortunately we lost a computer and the internet router. Now back on line for the past week, so we can share our pictures of the unseasonal weather. We assume that Rosie and Jasper may not have experienced snow on the Isle of Wight. Rosie was initially a bit bewildered, but watching Ed and Ossie who love snow and regress rapidly to puppyhood, she realised that it's a lot of fun to play in and enjoyed chasing the boys across the field, barking excitedly. Jasper still stands and shivers and tries to go back indoors as quickly as possible. His coat hair is so fine, it doesn't seem to keep him warm. He probably needs a warmer coat. best wishes Sarah
Thank you Sarah pleased you are back on line. One never imagines thunder and lightening during the winter! Lovely to read the dogs are enjoying playing in the snow. Maybe a thicker coat on Jasper will encourage him to join in the fun!
We got up this morning in snowy Consett in the North East, where the snow has been falling heavy through the night. We decided to put our wellies on, and go to the show at Cleveland, once we were out of Consett the roads weren't too bad. We were so pleased that we went, Airview Crystal Blue (Summer) brought home 3 rosettes.

This is a photo of Cookie with his family baby Nyla and big brother Cody. Cookie is Poppy & Millie’s brother. Sandra & Norman.
Thank you this is just a lovely family portrait. I just love Nyla with her dolly and Cookie looks so relaxed posing for the family photo!
I know it is not easy to find good puppy buyers here in Israel. So Les, if you know of anyone that wants some nice Bedlington pups, especially for show homes, please let them know about our litter. (not actually mine, but I am helping the other breeder)
I know it is very difficult to get pups from Israel to UK, but not impossible. It is easy to take the pups to the rest of Europe. Anyway, if you know of anything....:)) I am attaching a few newer pics of the pups. Enjoy!! Hessel
Thank you Hessel what beautiful babies, I am sure if they had been in this country they would have lovely homes waiting. For those reading this reply do drop into Hessel’s website (Holy Lamb Bedlingtons) you will find the link in the index column.
Thank you Enid I think we are going to have some fantastic snow dog entries, no snow for us today but snow showers are forcasted for the Midlands on Sunday.
Jasper is 10 years young today. He and Fosbury celebrated with their blog
pork pies. Jasper received a lovely card and a "Birthday Boy" badge that he
has worn all day - his friends were very jealous of him on his walk. Attached are some pictures of the boys enjoying Jasper’s birthday. All the best Martin and Julie
A very happy Birthday to young Jasper. How proud he looks in his birthday boy badge! Jasper and Fosebury are very special blog boys as they are rescues and have a lovely forever home with Martin and Julie
Stroud and Districts Canine Society Sunday November 28th
At Stratford Park Leisure Centre, Stroud, Gloucestershire GL5 4AF (10 mins from M5, Junction 13) Judge : Mrs Christine Worrall
Cleveland Dog at Eston on Sunday November 18th
Did anyone attend Camberley And District Canine Society 21st November? There was no news or results from this show.
Polly had a good week last week. Tuesday was the bronze class in which she was a star. Thursday she had her first obedience lesson with Audrey Whittaker who comes about every 3 weeks to the DTC. Polly did very well and Audrey has great hopes for her as she picks up things very quickly. To round off the week the pup had 1st in the AVNSC minor puppy at Burnley open show. She has the looks as well as the brains. Not to forget Dora who I had entered into the Pre beginners the Sunday before. After months of training she completed the round with NO sniffing and got full marks for her recall. The heelwork was good but still a bit wide but we have plenty of time for improvement. Rupert is Rupert and enjoys life.Regards Dot
Thank you Dot, Polly and Dora are a credit to the you and the breed proving that bedlingtons are capable of being successful in obedience as well as the show ring! Congratulations for Polly for her win in the puppy showing class sat Burnley. Keep up the obedience training, well done on Dora’s perfect recall it is great when the penny drops and everything come together!.
Hi one and all, not a lot has been happening around here. We are slowly adjusting to being a 2 dog household again, it’s been many years since there were so few dogs in our lives. Stella has had a marked change in personality, becoming far more relaxed and happier with her herself. Last weekend, Trevor, cruel man that he is, shaved both Stella and Maya back to their skins, (the photo of Maya is prior to her denuding).
I think the coats are going to have to come out if it gets as cold as the weatherman is predicting! Talking about hair cuts I don,t know if any of you saw this little chap at Crufts a couple of years ago, it just goes show what can be achieved with clippers and scissors!!!!
There as been an influx of puppies into our village of late, a couple of Cockers, a beagle and the ubiquitous Staffies, they include Cloudy-Tara, Sherlock Homes and Tallulah Flowers, all christened by their tiny play group owners. Sadly there isn’t a beddlie amongst them! Any news on young Kermit,the boy in need of a home? Hope he gets fixed up soon. Till the next time cuddle your bedlington it,s a wonderful way to keep warm. Jane xxx
Thank you Jane, lovely photo of Maya she has such a beautiful head. I saw the poodle in the bedlington trim at “Crufts”, quite amazing even got a top line. The little stubby face looks all wrong, just compare it to the lovely head shot of Maya. All the grooming in the world can’t hide the wrong shaped head! I have not head any news on Kermit but I am sure that puppy won’t be in rescue kennels for long!
Hello Bloggers, Its been a funny sort of a week for the K9 Marshal Crew, our usual paths where we walk all soggy and the fallen leaves going on the paths making them slippery, Jazz and Sapphire have been trying out their four paw drives out to great effect! On Wednesday they had a trip up to Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport to pick Mum and Brian up after a week in Portugal. When. Jazz and Sapphire saw them they when wild, they were so pleased to see them! After 5 minutes they were doing a search of the cases and pockets for any presents Mum and Brian had brought back for them.
On Saturday while Mum and Brian went to see Olive Stones the dogs and I went for a nice walk from the wharf to Colemere and back a distance of 9.5 miles. On Sunday Mum, Jazz, Sapphire and I went over to Telford on a Tellington Touch course and after five or so minutes the dogs where lying on their backs with their paws in the air totally relaxed and enjoying the massage and we all enjoyed the day. This Thursday (25th November) we will be celebrating Sapphires 2nd anniversary of being with us, bless her.She has achieved so much in just two years, not only are we happy with her but her little tail hasn't stopped wagging since she came to us. so for now its bye bye from Ian, Jazz And Sapphire pups ( AKA The K9 Marshal Crew)
Thank you Ian, hope Brian and Carmel enjoyed their break, they certainly deserve it after a full summer at the shows with “Dorwest Herbs”. How lovely to go on a Tellington Touch course. I know It is a gentle and innovative teaching method that the dogs warm to. Hope Sapphire has a special day on Wednesday she certainly has come a long way since joining the family.
We have been to Rotherham today to see Monty’s puppies, they are so scrummy. Here is Noah, Alice in the middle and Riley is on the right, they are five weeks old. I think it could be the first time I’ve visited puppies and not brought one home with me :) Donna
Ohhh Donna they are just lovely, it must have been sooooooooooo hard to leaving without choosing one for yourself!
I think we must have field mice in our garden. Fizz has been teaching Solo how to dig them out. No mice but a big hole in my herb patch! Ecco joined in so there were three dogs to bath. Thank goodness for the ancient, huge sink in the utility room. The paw plunger really does get all the caked mud off their paws but is no good for heads! Enid
Thank you Enid, they obviously got the scent of something small and furry! Perfect having a big sink in your utility room for those intrepid muddy hunters.
The weather here has gone back to spring!! Clear blue skies, sunshine and warm temps....hard to believe it is late November. This past week, Willo celebrated her 6th birthday on Friday and it sort of got lost in the shuffle, because that is the same day we all went off island to get Amelia FINALLY spayed. I am surprised that she is doing as well as she is, because she is such the little princess and so touch sensitive, I though she would be after her sutures, but she hasn't. Her appetite isn't completely back, but she is eating. THEN yesterday, while I was fixing the dogs their breakfast, Storey always gets a bone out of the bone box and lays in the living room chewing on it while she waits. I had to stop before I had the breakfast ready and go in the other room for something & I found Storey, with what I thought was her getting her paw stuck under her collar & chewing on it........I took her paw out of her mouth and she acted like she had something stuck in her mouth.....so I rolled her over to check.....there was something wedged up in the roof of her mouth & I though at first it was a tooth, it was really jammed in there and took some doing to get it out. After I got it and examined it I realized it was a piece of plastic.....like the cover on a syringe.....sometimes they get dropped when the vet is here. So after that I decided to have one last look to make sure there was nothing else there & I saw a tiny bit of white plastic, so I grabbed it and realized that it was the NEEDLE from the syringe!!!!! It was imbedded in the roof of her mouth....bless her heart she allowed me to pull it out and she was fine!!! Quite dramatic happenings for early in the morning!! It has been a rough animal week here on the island.....someone's dog was going around killing cats, feral and pet cats......someone apparently poisoned this dog and it was found dead in my friends front yard. Then my bosses 10 year old Corgi just died.....he wasn't sick or anything. Very unexpected and very sad for the family. We are down to 3 nights of work.....Wed, Fri & Sat. This is a holiday week here in the US...Thanksgiving, so with the great weather the island should be fairly busy...Willo will get a chance to have her "Salmon Pie" tonight to have a belated celebration....she is such a sweetheart. Until next week.....
Tricia, Greyson, Rose ,Willo ,Amelia & Storey (My Woofs in Sheeps Clothing)
Goodness Tricia, it was lucky you went into the other room when you did. No harm done but definitely a few very worrying minutes. How uncomfortable Storey must have been with that syringe and needle stuck in her mouth! Please to hear Amelia’s little op was a success and Willo is having her special salmon pie birthday treat. A very happy 6th birthday from everyone on the blog! Enjoy the lovely weather, very cold for us today and getting even colder with possible snow by the weekend.
A few of us up here in the cold North East went out to warm the cockles of our hearts on Friday night. It was one of the local dog clubs annual diner dances at Bowburn Hall just outside of Durham. I think we all enjoyed the night, certainly a nice meal and liquid refreshments from the private cellar LOL.
The Janmarks had another winning night with the raffle, don't know why anyone else bothers to buy the tickets, cuddly toys and the big prize of the night. Derek & Eileen
Thank you Derek, now I see why Eileen has been learning the “Zoomba” I saw a glimpse on TV what this dance entails, certainly loads of fast hip movements! I hope you all had a wonderful time, love the toys Mark but what was in the envelope?
Hi Bloggers, thought you might like to see this nice picture of a very young 92 year old with us. As you know today is Olive Stones 92nd birthday (bless her). On the back row is Tony (Olives son) just in front of Tony Is “Marge” Tony's Wife (Olive’s Daughter-in-Law) .On the right we have Angie (Olives Daughter). In the front in the nice red comfy hair We have the Birthday Girl Herself Olive Stones. A Very BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLIVE From The K9 Marshal Crew ( Ian, Jazz and Sapphire Pups )
Thank you Ian what a lovely smiley lady, Olive looks terrific in this celebration photo.
Someone on Bed-L posted this. this dog is located in the UK. Is anyone in Rescue aware of him?? Tricia
For further details regarding Kermit from Ravenswood Rescue, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07984 446717 or visit www.ravenswoodpetrescue.co.uk Dogs are rehomed all over the UK and our dogs are in various locations throughout the UK following a successful homecheck

Thanks to Tricia for emailing me the link. I will contact Frances from Bedlington Rescue
Last year you posted a link to our video from our MACH run at the Montgomery All Terrier Agility trials. Well, one year later Titus (who is now 9 years old), earned his MACH 2 in the rain and mud. I posted a video taken the day after when the sun was shining and the ground was firm. Enjoy!!Susan Wellington and her agility boyz (Titus and Axel) USA
Fantastic news many congratulations to you, a real achievement for a bedlington! A Mach is a title earned by scoring points on clear rounds in agility. A dog progresses through many stages starting in beginners classes working its way up the ladder to Champion and Mach titles. The scoring is very different ours in the UK.
Wet Wet Wet!
Good morning bloggers,
We're in the middle of the worst storm of the winter so far. My path is under water and the dogs are refusing to go out so I'm off to the gym to my Zoomba class. Larry would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes on his birthday last week. He enjoyed his trip to the West midlands on Saturday. He loves going to shows even if he's not taking part. I've spoken to Sharon and baby Adam is doing well but his Mum and Dad are shattered! I've included Sharon in Welsh news because she lives just over the border. Nothing else to report. All quiet on the Western Front. Enid
Thank you Enid dull miserable cold and wet today in Oxfordshire as well. The dogs not wanting to go out except Asha who is not bothered and eventually comes in from the garden wet and covered in mud where she has been trying to dig at the many mole mounds in the garden. The blog is very quiet and if any of our readers can help with some photos that would be great.
Just to let you know that Kala has a new home in Kent, with a lady who lost her Bedlington over a year ago. Kala has settled in well, her first night was on Jan’s bed and not a peep out of her. Jan says that Kala strolls around the house as if she has been there all her life. I am just going to phone the previous owner to let her know that all is well. Thank you for all your help. Frances Fuller
This just fantastic news! It is so special when our rescue dogs find new forever loving homes. It is wonderful to read Kala has already settled and enjoying her new life with Jan. Do keep us updated and if possible we would love to have a photo for our blog rescue page
Hello Bloggers, after a very busy weekend in the Welsh Forests spectating on the Rally GB we have just got back to normal, dried off and warm again after a very wet Saturday afternoon. Today two little Bedlingtons reminded me that it was their Birthdays. yes two of The K9 Marshal Crews Members Jazz and little Sapphire pups are 4 years old today. It doesn't seem 5 minutes when Jazz was a little pup and playing with his late but great Aunty Ruby pups. The same goes for little Sapphire it doesn't seam that on the 25th of this month it'll be two years ago when she was on her way to her new home (forever home) with us. She hasn't looked back since, she like Jazz enjoys life to the full. So from you're uncle Ian you two HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
A very happy birthday, with love especially from Mummy Diesel, Daddy Parker and Grandma Fudge. A big kiss to you both from all your blog bedlington friends, hope you had a fun day with your uncle Ian.
Our puppy Alys is now 7 months old. Last week after her morning cuddle on our bed, she left a mark which we took to be the start of her season. We put on her modesty pants to enable her to wander around the house. However we have yet to see another mark at all. Could this be all she has, or could it continue over the next couple of weeks ?
Lucy was about 10 months old and she continued for three weeks as expected. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Regards Rod Chris Lucy & Alys
Thank you Rod and Chris, a bitch usually comes into season anytime from six months but I don’t know the answer to your question. Maybe there is some one in Bedlington Land who has had a similar experience with a first season.
Hi everyone, these were taken of Misty & Bailey-Jay at the beginning of last month it is so difficult to get them both to look at the camera together they usually look like a couple of bookends looking in opposite directions Linda Dunn Edwards
Thank you Linda lovely photos of your boys!
7yr. old blue bitch in Folkestone area is in need of a new home. Owner died she is in a foster home and needs to find a home a.s.a.p. She is good with children, ok on the lead but can pull, cats a no no. I have been told that vaccinations are up to date but not sure re-paperwork, she has been microchipped again I have not seen any paperwork, and I do not know if she has been spayed. If anyone wants to offer ahome can they ring me Frances Fuller 01559 384499
