Return of the Mac…

I am very sorry for the long pause everyone. It has been ober busy these last few weeks. Not only that but I seem to have no end of dramas with my car and then my camera! Sigh… Luckily everything has been fixed so now we can move on and resume normal transmission woopee!

It threatened rain all day today, but happily it never came to anything! We were waiting all day for the heavens to open but someone up there must have thought we had had enough bad luck for one week haha 😉

We had the lovely Kobi start with us today. Kobi is a stunning 7 months old French Bulldog who is extremely enthusiastic about the world and all his new friends! He is 100% typical of a young Frenchie, not a bad bone in his body but needs to learn to reign in that enthusiasm a tad teehee 😉 Of course it will be hugely beneficial for socialize with both older balanced doggies who can show him the ropes, and the younger ones who will happily help him burn off that energy! We are all very happy to have Kobi join us. He is so friggin handsome!!!

Green Explosion!!!

One day of brilliant sunshine followed by a weekend of rain has had a dramatic effect on the plant life! Look at how much everything has grown in just 72 hours!! It was truly beautiful out there today, if not a little hot and muggy!!

It was even warmer this afternoon at Holyrood Park. Molly, Skye and Lochey jumped in every muddy puddle they could find and I couldn’t blame them at all! My glasses were slipping off my face I was sweating so much…nice!

Sneaky summer…

Well this weekend has been a total bust weather wise!! And after the glorious promise of Friday’s sunshine I think we are all feeling rather blue now 😦 Oh well, here is a look back at my walks on Friday, at least we can say we made the most of it while it lasted!

Archie enjoying the sun and of course his beloved football!

Partners in crime Lochey and Winston. Arthur’s Seat was gorgeous and roasting on Friday. We met many lovely people and doggies, the boys played and ran and played and ran. Lappin it up…

Molly after jumping into the wrong end of the duck pond to cool down :/ It took John and I half and hour to wash off all this gunk in the tub once I had got her home!! I was laughing my head off when she did it though, I don’t think she expected it to be that deep!

Hamish…

We had a lovely walk this morning, met many of our regular friends and some new ones! Everyone had a good run around, we only lost one ball (not bad!) and we saw quite a few critters that inhabit The Dell too! Happy times….

Just seconds after I took this photo Olly gave up and let the ball float away down stream, so close, and yet no prize! Olly is not the biggest water fan so I’m suprised he made it in this far 🙂 It was a good effort!

Meet Hamish! Hamish joined us on for his first walk today. Though he is no stranger to dog walkers and took the whole thing in his stride He is a very confident and down to earth little man. Though still partial to a few maddies every now and then! He gave Molly a run for her money!
