Happy Halloween!!

I did try really hard to take some spooky photos for you all today, but the dogs only seem to do cute…sorry!

But here is a little one off of the internet to keep in with the spirit of things!

The weather has just been amazing the past few days, we have missed all the showers, luck has been on our side!! I am however struggling photography wise with the light, it has made getting clean, clear shots quite tricky! When they are good they are good and when they are not, they are super blurry!

Rain and Sun…

The weather is flippantly jumping between beautiful Autumn sunshine and pouring cats and dogs at the moment!! However pretty much all the doggies have their waterproofs now so we are prepared for fun no matter what the weather! Bring it on!

When Autumn is good, it’s very good.

The weather was beautiful today, absolutely stunning. Β I was really annoyed at myself for forgetting the camera this morning with Hugo, Murphy, Smudge and Ella. I rushed back to get it at lunchtime as there is no way I could let this beautiful day go by without a little photo shoot. Can’t quite put into words how much I love this city and my job with these wonderful dogs. Even when people comment on how bad the weather is, there is not one part of me that wishes I had a desk job inside instead, Not one part….

The guys were all very good having their photos taken today, apart from Maud-Monster who just couldn’t be bothered! Everyone has days where they are just not in the mood for a photograph and there’s nothing wrong with that! Maud was content playing and watching the others have their photo done instead xx

Friday games…

We are thankful for any day that is dry at the moment! Had two lovely walks yesterday, all of the dogs were on top form, showing the public how lovely and amazing a well-behaved and balanced pack really it. Smiles and compliments all round from every person we met. Joyful….

Tug-o-war was the game of the day!! Another frisbee near torn in half!! As long as they are enjoying themselves… πŸ™‚

Gus’s ‘safe’ zone is between his Dad and I’s feet. He stands here whenever he is unsure and wants to be comforted.

Tug-o-war between Gus and Archie, Archie doing a really good job of humoring my little lad who is not as tough as he thinks he is!

P1190547

Gus is determined I’ll give him that! Archie still won….

Dreich days!

Ahh….Sunny Scotland…..NOT!! My goodness this is turning out to be one dreich October. Though my trip to Grand Canaria has given me just that extra little bit of sunshine late in the year so now all I need is some new waterproof trousers (thank you Auldi!) and I think I can face the weather with my wonderful packs. I missed them all so much while I was away!! I have been catching up on some much missed kisses and frolics.

Wet, wet, wet….

Everyone is still more than happy to play frisbee despite the rain!
