Photos, photos, photos …

This seems to be a never-ending stream of photos! I’m STILL trying to work through my collection from August 2016 until now! Such hard work looking at all these fuzzy faces….not!

Summer dreaming…

Yes, we are STILL working through the summer photos! What can I say, I take A LOT of photos lol! It it nice with the weather turning cold now and the clocks about to go back (boo to dark mornings, wah!) to look back on all that gorgeous weather we had. Everyone complains about it at the time, hindsight is a bit of a b*tch aye 😉 hehe…

Without further adieu… I’ll start the reminiscing with a group shot bonanza! img_77801

I love this one…

Bramble is always up for it, ‘Bring it on boys!’ 😉 img_85181img_85211

Olly and Smudge, two of my oldest clients. These two lads have been with me from the very beginning. It makes me so proud to have had such long term clients, to be able to continue watching these amazing dogs whom I love, grow from pups into such beloved friends.

After work we do like our snoozing! I’m a bit partial to joining them haha! Well after 9-10 miles of hills I don’t think anyone could begrudge us a little power nap 😉 img_86041

Cocoa-Bean! We miss this lady all the time and LOVE it when she comes to visit ❤ ❤ img_86441

Lovely athletic girls xximg_86661

Nothing beats that ‘wind in your hair’ kinda day!img_86671

Hoping for Spring…

We have had some lovely weather over the last few weeks, shh, don’t scare it away! I have to admit though we are all very much hoping this is a break through for the Spring season so we can finally say good by to the horizontal rain and sleet. We still LOVE walking in our beloved city’s open spaces, but not a single pup or two-legger could deny that a little sunshine goes a long way to making our adventures more enjoyable. Come on Spring! We are ready for you!

Check out these beautiful blue skies! P.s. Don’t be fooled its still freezing! Gloves and hats required but hey, its not raining!!!

Two truly wonderful models in the form of Gus and Moomoo. All that adorable squishy goodness!IMG_5140[1]IMG_5141[1]

This lovely shot of the crew and Arthur’s Seat ruined by my shadow photo bombing haha!IMG_5413[1]

Ruben and baby Bramble continue to be inseparable. Their antics are hysterical and endearing all at the same time.  IMG_5451[1]

Crazy face competition. IMG_5452[1]IMG_5453[1]

Dogs in a row…IMG_5498[1]

Can you spot Ruben? His tiger-brindle coat is doing its job here! He is no more than four feet in front of me and all but disappears! Amazing…IMG_5499[1]IMG_5500[1]

My beautiful lady…is in serious need of a mother-daughter spa day. This girlie needs a hair cut and a bath pronto!:DIMG_5501[1]

Gus falling asleep sitting up after the morning walk. Its such a hard life aye munchkin?IMG_5502[1]IMG_4853[1]

So much cheeky-monkey in one photo! These lads would keep anyone on their toes 😉 They are so much fun to work with. IMG_4852[1]IMG_4851[1]

Oh no….they found a plunge pool! Queuing up for a mud bath!IMG_4849[1]

We love Bramble…IMG_4850[1]IMG_4848[1]

We just can’t get enough of these gorgeous mornings… IMG_4846[1]

A little bit of winter still remains up in the Pentlands. Miss Bramble was very bewildered by this snow man in the woods! I had to go up with her to show her there was nothing to be afraid of, and then she nicked his arm! Poor snowman hahaha!

After all our outdoor adventures nothing in this world can beat cozying up and napping with my dogs. This is Molly and I’s traditional sleeping position. Sleeping alongside your dogs is not only a fantastic bonding experience, but it is also extremely soothing and the best stress reliever for you and your dogs. Gus by the way sleeps curled up behind my knees, so I have a hot water bottle AND a teddy bear! Bliss….ZZZZzzzzzIMG_4688[1]

Through the fog…

Last week we had some crazy foggy weather! It was so thick sometimes the dogs would almost disappear completely…almost 😉 One of my lovely clients asked if I was missing the warmer weather, but truth be told it has been roasting! Its so humid I have still been walking is shorts and t-shirt, albeit with some leggings underneath 😉

We have had some of our very dear friends come to guest spot with us over the last few weeks. It was absolutely wonderful to have Cocoa-Bean come to visit, we have known Cocoa since she was a little puppy and Gus especially thinks of her as his sister!

It was also lovely to have Olly join us for a few walks again, we miss our Black Panther when he is away xxx

A good photo to demonstrate the crazy fog! Giorge is like, ‘Eh, guys?? Where are you?!’

This was a particularly damp and chilly morning. The fog was so thick we were getting soaked even without a single raindrop falling! Coats on…

Selfies with dogs; I am getting the hand of this doggie hypnosis hahahaha! unnamed (73)

Its nice to get home and snuggle after a humid and damp day on the hills, Tillie agrees and thinks my legs make a pretty darn good pillow 😉

Happy to be back!

Well we had a fantastic time away, but it was fantastic to come back to work too!! We missed all our friends on four paws, and judging from the amazing welcome we got they missed us too!

Poor Mr Honda has a sore leg, but has been in good spirits and is slowly recovering. Woop, woop! We have been taking it easy on lead walks and resting too. It has been very warm this week, Indian summer! So we have all been enjoying little stops along the way for drinks and cooling down.

A very sunny afternoon on Craiglockhart Hill, every time I walk up here with the dogs I am sad that Edinburgh Council have sold the nature reserve and university buildings for development. Its a crime….

Wee-man Hector chasing Ruben and Louis!

I really hope whatever company has bought these makes a good job of converting them, it would be a tragedy otherwise. unnamed (46)

Happy happy trails, I love this sight 😀

It has been very warm this week as I said, but we have also had some very very foggy mornings too! When the fog burns off we have been left with blazing sunshine and cloudless skies. I could definitely get used to this weather! Autumn is on its way…

Molly and the gang walking at the edge of the world!

We are all very much enjoying our luxury new ride, whoop whoop, traveling in style! After starting out the week in tragedy (some horrible person smashing my back window then driving off and leaving me without so much as a note!) we are now all settled in and I have to say super impressed with the custom dog-guard and boot divider. The spacious Volvo, who we have named ‘Zeus’ 😉 , has also been kitted out to perfection with a back seat dog-hammock and brand new doggie seat belts throughout! Oh yeah, pimpin puppy wagon….
