Pumi Update

1470467_10151715983767665_1123104432_nSteiff looking very grown up after her hair cut. The Pumi is non shedding and much easier to trim than the bedlington no clipping evolved!

I have had a few emails asking about my Pumi “Steiff” She is now 13 weeks and really growing up fast. She is a super pup very  naughty but lots of fun!. Being a herding breed I am already enjoying training her to basic obedience and fun tricks
Over the past few weeks lots has been happening for UK Pumi owners. A letter has now gone to the Kennel Club asking for registration of a new breed.. Also, there is new  UK Pumi facebook group.
  A  meeting has been organised in February  near the NEC  to discuss   forming a registered K C  Pumi Club, It is all happening!

The Pumi is a fun breed to have especially if you enjoy dog sports, they are easy to train and  proven to be very successful in agility and Heelwork To Music. Contact me if you would like more information on the breed or available litters.

Bedlington Terriers Orkney


The seven pups have started another milestone and begun weening onto more solid food.  It consisted of a mix of eating and walking in it – but they seemed to enjoy it!

Also, three pups have met their future owners which was great to witness.  Millie has been superb throughout and is turning out to be a super-mum, so that leaves 3 girls and a boy available at present.

A Special Day For Sapphire


Just a quick Message from The K9 Marshal Crew
Monday 25th November our little Sapphire celebrated her 5th anniversary being with Jazz, and the rest of the household. Most of you know our little girl dog was rescued from an uncertain end, a nice lady up near Newark saved her and phoned our very own Tony Waller with the news of a little girl in rescue. Tony phoned us and we went to see Sapphire with Jazz and we all fell head over heels in love with her and brought her home. She has been loved and spoilt  now  lives the life of Reilly. Every day she wakes up to kisses and cuddles (Bless her Little socks)   From Ian

Brave, Brilliant, Fast and Stubborn


A ridiculously brave and brilliant beast. It looks like a baby lamb, yet is fast enough to outpace a horse. They're friendly chaps but somehow also so ridiculously stubborn "they would rather die than succumb in any situation". Traditionally it is a favourite choice of Geordies.
Thanks to Demelza for finding this profile.

Manchester & District Sporting Terrier Club

Yesterday at Manchester Sporting Terrier, the good news BOB to
Nebercrackers Rosie Blue but nothing in BIS.  The bad news she was the
only Bedlington entered, really sad when classes are offered and there
is little or no response
Regards Carol & Paul.

Well done, a very long day and such a shame on the bedlington entry.  I think this show hs been well supported in the past.

Young Bedlington Looking For A Forever Home

Wirral Area

4 year old, blue, castrated dog in the Wirral area needs a new home. He is currently in his third home and he has been here for 2 years having previously been rehomed from a lady in Liverpool.

He will need a new home with someone who can understand and work with his over confident behaviour using positive reward based methods. His current owners have been working with a behaviourist to help with this and things are slowly coming together.  However, he would ideally be happier in a family with no children and no other animals. He does bark at other dogs when he is on a lead but will come on command.

For further details, please contact Frances Fuller on 01559 384499

Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme


Just to let  those of you know on the scheme that a Regional Breed Assessor  will be visiting you sometime in the near future. The local assessor came on a 2 hour visit to us today. She was very thorough checking documentation and taking photos of the premises. Apparently the assessors will be visit everyone on the scheme every three years.
At last the Kennel Club are taking responsible breeding seriously and now inspecting ABS breeders.
In my opinion the KC should only register puppies from the ABS scheme !!!

Happy Birthday To Jazz and Sapphire



Hello (and woof, Woof) to all our Blog Friends
Sapphire and Jazz Here. Well what a busy week and weekend. We started off the week going for nice walks with Uncle Ian, where we met up with lots of our doggie friends and had fun racing about playing with them. This past week has been great, its as if all of our friends have picked the same time as us to go out for a walk!  Friday we went to see our friend Mr. Biggles at his home where  we had a cup of tea and biscuits we also helped him  feed and water all of his birds. After we were  finished we all went for a 4 mile walk over the fields to Lower Frankton Locks then back to his house in Tetchill along the tow path and canal.


On Saturday Uncle Ian got us up early and took us for a walk around the local park before we came back home to pick Granny up. Jazz and I thought it was a bit funny that Uncle Ian didn't let us out of the car. Wow  what a surprise before we dropped Granny off in Oswestry  and before she got out of the car, Granny and Uncle Ian sung "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" to us!!!!  We thought that they had forgotten, then Uncle Ian took us to Chirk Castle  Jazz and I were so excited as there was loads of people there fussing us. Then we heard the roar of a Rally Car coming towards us and Uncle Ian said that this was our Birthday treat.  He  has  brought us to see the RALLY GB.  Some of our rally friends stopped on the road  where we were standing watching to change their tyres and found time to give us a fuss. In the gap between the big boys ( front runners ) and the nationals a big 4X4 came down the road and stopped by us. it was an F.I.A car (F.I.A being the governing body for all the world rally championship event).  All three people from the car  Jumped out and came over to us and gave us a big fuss.  We met some of our friends that we got to know from the events that Jazz and I have marshalled on with Uncle Ian. When we picked Granny we headed off home. Later Granny, Granddad and Uncle Ian went out for their meal with the dog display team. We had a party  when they got back home, Jazz and I were still partying when they got up this morning with sleepy eyes!!  Our party went on till the small hours of the morning.


Today we went to an antiques fair at Park Hall near Oswestry. We have a surprise,  all we are  saying  is "WATCH THIS SPACE!!!!!" If everything goes to plan we will let you know ha ha! So for now its woof, woof, woof from Sapphire and Jazz (The Birthday Pups) Reporting for what we class as THE NUMBER 1 BLOG SITE :)

Thank you Jazz and Sapphire Diesel and Parker wish you a very happy birthday.   Sounds like you had a wonderful day with Uncle Ian and fun party evening.  You are  so well known on the rally circuit I think you should be the mascots for the UK Rally Team!!

Emigrating To Llanwrtyd Wells

We wish John and Louise Beasley good luck in their move today to Wales. A new beginning and a new life ahead running a B&B. I can’t think of a more beautiful place to live than in mid Wales. There has to be a little alteration work on the house before they open for guests, but hopefully many of us will be visiting them very soon.

Durhham Luminere

Hello Bloggers,
We luckily ordered tickets to go to the Luminere being staged at Durham and even then it was very crowded.  When we came out of the main area at 8.30 folk were still queuing to get in. also luckily the North East weather was good.!cid_EE322B55-8B56-45CC-9DC6-3CECDCCDD262

This display was on the old Miners Hall in Durham and starts off with just one figure climbing the building ending up with all showing and dancing to the music.  The dark pile at the foot of the figures is coal and no way could it have came from the Durham Coal Fields, probably imported from abroad, or Yorkshire. Any pits left down there lads,


Well I think we all know where this is, very clever.  Starts off when the area was just wild and travels through the life of the Cathedral to modern times. Excuse the shaky image but the scenes changed a bit too fast for the camera, or perhaps it's the shaky hand of the photographer.


The river at Durham taken from the old Millburn Gate Bridge.Well worth a visit when it comes back to Durham, normally every two years.The Makems

Thank you Derek, I think this display of story telling in lights is fantastic. It is lovely to see something different than the usual festive lights. I love the stick figures in the miners display. Was this display accompanied to music?

Beautiful Middleton In Teesdale


A day in Middleton-In-Teesdale with Archie and Dylan. We stated our walk at Low Force walked a couple of miles up alongside the river until we came to the mighty High Force waterfalls. We sat there for a while just watching the falls,then walked a couple more miles up the river path before turning off to walk up onto the moors which was a bit boggy, but we still enjoys a good walk out of 8 miles.. Paul and Deborah


Thank you Deborah and Paul these are just wonderful photos, you must keep them safe to enter in the calendar competition next year.
