Easter sunshine…

Oh my goodness what a gorgeous day out there today. Absolutely stunning blue skies and toasty warm…for Scotland haha! We are enjoying the Easter holidays as much as the kids!

Happy faces all round!

White Fluffy Clouds…

YES YES YES to sunshine!! Blue skies and white fluffy clouds, get in!! So nice to come home and not need to strip off my sodding clothes at the front door haha. It’s definitely colder, but I will happily take chilly sunshine over muggy pouring rain!

It was the ‘working’ crew this afternoon. These guys have some energy about them! You have to be fit and active to keep them entertained. Lots of balls game, ‘seek’, swimming, cuddles, sitting and waiting for photos (then rewarded), the whole caboodle basically 🙂 I think I accomplished my goal well, by the end of the walk I had five nackard panting doggies and one very sleepy little Bichon.

P1210857

Run, run, run, run , run…..

P1210858

More running!!

P1210859 P1210860

Louis sitting for a photo, very hansom chap!

P1210861 P1210862

Jess laps all the other dogs easily, no wonder she would rather lie down than sit for her photo! Don’t let her fool you though, she could easily do at least another 10/15 miles on top of our walk I reckon! Little word of advice for getting a dog, if you don’t like walking/running/hill climbing or working on a farm…don’t get a Collie! Jess’s parents are professional runners, if that gives you any indication of the kind of commitment to exercise these dogs need. She is in the perfect home 🙂

P1210869

Yup yup, more photos please, I’m so pretty!

P1210863

Hugo has the best expressions, they just crack me up!

P1210865

Murphy stopping to take in some rays, ahh….heaven.

P1210873

This is what a Louis kiss looks like 😀

P1210870

And a Kobi kiss! I’ve never been so popular with boys haha!

P1210871

Working Cocker’s together, they could be brothers!

P1210877 P1210874

Not a grey cloud on the horizon, that’s what we like. More of the same please Scotland!

P1210876

More rain…and ‘The Dude’

Spoke too soon at the weekend, boy did we get wet today!! And muddy, no I mean seriously muddy!! I had to take Winston and Rocket-Dog swimming after the second walk as they were so muddy I couldn’t see how I would even get them from my front door to the bath tub without leaving a trail black sludge behind us!

This is little Murphy folks (say ‘Hi’) who is with us for just four short days. There is no other way to say this, Murphy is ‘The Dude’! He is literally the coolest little dog. Sat shotgun with me, slotted right in with the pack cool as a cucumber, off lead straight away, speaks perfect English….Not a dog, a wee-man in a dog suit.

P1210843

Check out the swagger…

‘Bad boys, bad boys, what ya gonna do, what ya gonna do, when they come for you, bad boys,bad boys…’

P1210830

I am very happy to finally be able to introduce Tillie! Tillie will be joining us every couple of weekends when her Mum has to work. She is a delight, four stone of sweetness, my goodness I love Bulldogs!!! I simply cannot wait for her to meet Maud-monster!!

P1210850 P1210848
Actually we have changed our minds, we are not wet enough…

Snuggles and jumpers at home. 🙂

Chasing tails…

Just chasing our tails catching up on the walks from last Friday and yesterday! We had lovely weather both days, sigh…happiness is a sunny dog walk!

Archie and Gena enjoying the rays…Gus doesn’t even look that small next to these guys, and yet I still think of him as a small dog! No idea why…

P1210732

Blue skies, that’s what we like…

P1210734 P1210736 P1210739 P1210741

Awesome group shot!

P1210745

Honda enjoying a roll on the grass which developed to us all lying around sunning ourselves for a good fifteen minutes with tummy rubs. SO relaxing!

P1210746 P1210750

This hill is MUCH steeper than this shot makes out! Pant, pant…

P1210752

‘Sunshine on a rainy day, makes my soul, makes my soul drift, drift away..’ I cannot get that dalm song out my head!!

P1210767 P1210769 P1210771

Gus and Booboo know all the secret drinking spots! This big tree collects water right ontop, which the boys know all too well. Look at them cueing politely though! See America, even British dogs know how to cue properly!! 😉

P1210772 P1210775 P1210780

Dog soup…

P1210782 P1210783

And once again…Maud, ‘ Winston, Winston, Winston, Winston…WINSTON!!!’

It’s invoicing time back at the Beveridge household. With the help of my cracking PA team to man the phones and keep my feet warm…and remind me to take breaks! Couldn’t do it with out them!

More sunshine today and lots of ball games…

P1210547

How handsome is Ruben becoming! Starting to loose his baby face, just a wee bit. Still a ways to go though, its great seeing him grow and mature.

P1210548 P1210550

Check out Winston’s epic skid mark, yes it was worth it, he got the ball! It was honestly like six foot long, so worth a photo. Booboo was so proud!

P1210552

BALL, BALL, BALL, BALL, BALL, BALL…..

P1210553

Gus having a little maddy with his tongue out…

P1210554 P1210560

They always manage to find the only puddle in the field to wade in….I’m telling you its a crazy skill my munchkins have…

P1210564 P1210565

Pretty girl…

P1210567 P1210568

Molly and Maud-Monster playing chase. Maud is one healthy Bulldog keeping up with a Retriever and a Cocker Spaniel, makes me so happy to see. Every Bulldog should be able to run, exercise and play like this. I love the breed, but hate seeing the ones that cannot walk far or run because they are too heavy, short legged or have breathing problems (amongst other hereditary issues) . Maud is one of the best examples I have ever seen, she may never be a fly-ball champion but she is most definitely happy and healthy. Her breeder should get a medal.

P1210570 P1210572

Muchos fun being had all round!

P1210573

Maud sandwich…

P1210574
