Ronnie’s Baby Brother


Hi bloggers, here are a few pictures of Ronnie with her new baby brother Sparky! He's a whippet cross of some kind though we don't know exactly what, do any bloggers have any ideas? I'd love to know what people think? The word 'Saluki' has cropped up, in which case it's just as well we'rr moving to a bigger house soon! He's certainly growing fast and from the size of his paws he looks as though he's going to be a big lad! He is somewhere between 12-15 weeks now, though these pics were taken a fortnight ago so he is about twice the size now! We adopted him through Helping Pets North East who had rescued him after irresponsible 'breeders' gave him a bad start in life. He's been with us for a few weeks now and has settled in so well! As you can see, Ronnie loves playing with him- she's nearly 2 and still a daft puppy at heart so it's nonstop tumbling and wrestling in our house at the minute! It's mostly good natured though Ronnie does occasionally pin him down and remind him in no uncertain terms just who the boss is round here! Even if he grows to be the size of a Great Dane he'll still have a little woolly tyrant telling him what to do!


Thank you Carly, Sparky certainly has a cheeky face and how lucky he is to have found a  forever home with his new big sister Ronnie. It is difficult to tell what breeding he might be but he certainly has long legs and will probably grow quite tall. We will look forward to lots of updates.

Flint BOB At The Suffolk Show


We all had a lovely day today at the Suffolk Show, despite the damp and cold.  Flint (Jetsway Chase) was BP, BOB, Group 2 and Puppy Group 1. By the end of the day, he'd had enough, and drooped a bit in the BPIS ring, so nothing further. A very enjoyable day, in good company! We took the dogs in the woods, which were full of bluebells - what a lovely sight the dogs all made, in a sea of blue

Southern Counties Championship Show Do We Need Wellingtons and 4x4’s?

Tomorrow is the first day of the show. After all this rain does anyone know the condition of the exhibition area and camping field? The weather forecast for the weekend is good but after 48 hours of non stop rain  the grass will take some time to dry out. Bedlingtons show Saturday.

An Eventful Dog Walk


Hi all, an eventful dog walk today with my Bedlington and my Auntie's Malshi and Cockapoo.
Firstly, we parked the car and there was a lot of people looking over the beach banks, and behind the sand dunes was police helicopter, what happened I don't know. Next Lily the Malshi(Shih Tzu X Maltese) pulled to the beck and was off in her own little world paddling away. Then Guy my Bedlington out-ran a whippet, which thought Guy looked like a fluffy little liver bunny. Next a couple of OAP's, one of which was absolutely off his rockers, thinking his mobility scooter was a 4x4 in the dean,  through the sand, off-road and up mini hills. Finally, to finish the day on calm note we popped in the pet shop and bought some dried tripe, for the dogs! Thanks for reading. 
Nathan Brown & Guy



Thank you Nathan for the photos it  certainly was a very eventful day in what  looks like in glorious weather!

A Very Happy Birthday Today To…..


Enid. Have a lovely day Enid from everyone on the blog.

Busy Having Fun!

Hello To All Our Blogging Friends,


Sapphire and Jazz here,  we have been busy and we haven't finished yet. Just over a week ago we were heading of in to Radnor Forest with Uncle Ian for a weekend of 4 x 4 Rallying. We had a good spot to marshal, we were 1/4 mile from the stage start, on some of fastest bit of forest road leading into a 90 degrees right bend where all the cars were snaking and braking to slow down enough to turn the corner. When Uncle Ian started cooking our sausage breakfast  all the competitors and marshals at the start line complained that with the smell of  bacon, eggs and  sausages  was making them hungry (Ha ha ha ). Once we had, our breakfast Jazz and I were at full throttle playing on the side road,  Uncle Ian kept a close eye on us. We shouted some support to our friend Phil Ibbotson who races a 4x4 MG METRO, he finished the event in 6th place.

Saturday’s weather was rain and wet snow but thank goodness it didn't stick and luckily Sundays weather wasn't to bad so we went to Colemere for a special walk for being so good.  Shropshire Greyhound Rescue was there with their greyhounds, the rescue team were manning a BBQ and 4 stalls  (Greyhound gifts, Tombola stall, lucky dip and a cake stand ). Uncle Ian was very good as he didn't buy any cakes,  he did say  that he was looking after his figure Jazz and I just laughed our heads off it was the best joke we have ever heard!

During the week we had lots of nice walks, we even went to Telacre Beech on the North Wales coast, Jazz and I had so much room to run and play together testing our 4 paw drive and we built a sand castle  we tried to bury Uncle Ian in the sand but he managed to escape.  Last weekend just we did two dog displays at Dreanford Lake by Whitchurch (very nice place indeed doggie fishing heaven).  Both of the displays went well  the weather forecast wasn't very good but to our surprise it wasn't to bad nice and dry on both days. It was sunny and warm on the Sunday so Granny, Jazz Uncle Ian and I had cups of tea and cakes down by the lake it was a lovely setting.


As for this weekend Jazz and I are going with Uncle Ian to the Shropshire County Show  (Uncle Ian said it's the new name for the West Mid Show) to do another dog display with the rest of the team. Jazz and I are getting really excited because there are.some big tractors demonstrating tractor pulling. In last night's Shropshire star (evening paper) Uncle Ian read that there will be a fly past over the show ground by 2 Hurricane and Spitfire air planes yipeeee! We will let you know how we get on. Uncle Ian has made Jazz and myself a cup of tea with a doggie biscuit to dip into it yum, yum, yum.Bye bye for now and we will write soon ( we promise)  Jazz and Sapphire
Thank you Jazz and Sapphire you certainly have  had a busy time, I expect Ian has something nice planned for this bank holiday weekend, have fun!

A Very Happy 2nd Birthday To Kitty

Little Kitty is two years old today, she's a great great granddaughter of Rotherview Blue Comet on her dad's side, although she's KC she decided to stop growing at just short of 14 inches, everyone thinks she's still a puppy! Kitty shares a sofa with our first Bedlington, Ullig (Swedish for Woolly) who's five - at least she'd like to if he'd leave her any room. Robin and Fiona


Thank you Fiona and Robin and a very happy birthday to Kitty!  I think Kitty will be a forever puppy and really cute. Do hope she enjoyed her special day and Ullig allowed her to share some space on the sofa!,  she can’t take up much room!

Miss Pie and her babies1

Jasper And Friends In scotland

11Rosie - What do I do now?

We thought that you would like to see that we enjoyed our holiday in North East Scotland – lovely campsite very close to Elgin. Ed and Ossie were born nearby, so they were taking us back to their roots.
 There are lovely walks in the woods and by little rivers, nothing too hilly and best of all, huge sandy empty beaches. We grew up on the Isle of Wight, and Rosie and I love beaches. Rosie didn’t quite know what to do with the big hole that she had dug, so she then chased Ed up and down the beach (hard to believe she is twice his age) and I just enjoyed playing with my toy. I have come on so much since my stroke in February- almost back to normal. Ossie enjoyed himself too, he mostly likes beachcombing in the dunes – with only brief spells of exert.

ssssss                                                      Ed chasses Ossie
We visited a couple of interesting ruined castles and Elgin Cathedral (also a ruin) – all very dog friendly. One day we went to Dufftown – the heart of Speyside whisky brewing. We enjoyed some interesting smells walking past the stills. There are 9 distilleries, just in that one small town. Sarah and Tony had an interesting visit to see the casks being made – included a free tasting, of course. Hope to see you at the fun day.
Love Jasper

Jasper with his toy and Ossie in full flight toy.

Thank you Jasper,  you all had a fun time with lots of lovely walks and romps on the beach. I bet Tony and Sarah enjoyed their we dram and tour of the distillery. Look forward to seeing you all at the Fun Day.
