Chasing Tails part II…..

Oh my goodness we might actually have caught up on all our photographs from the last few weeks!! Imagine that! Just remember folks if you want to see the daily photo posts please feel free to follow us on Instagram at ‘andreajackalleg’ or search for #fourseasonsdogwalkingedinburgh on instagram and we will come up!

Molly (or Blondie as I like to call her 😀 ) loves climbing, running and in general having winding all her boy-toys up haha! She loves a good game of chase or wrestle and the boys are more than happy to oblige!

Trying to distract Louis from playing with the ball! “Chase me instead Louis!”

Baby Giorge is fast loosing his puppish looks, he will be a big-boy before we know it!

Poor Colin cut his pad on one of our walks last week and needed stitches 😦 Until he was all healed up we have been visiting him at home, which he was not so impressed with I have to say! On his mini walk around the block (with a waterproof boote on to protect his bandage) the tough wee lad kept trying to drag me to my car!  “Why aren’t we going walking?! I’m totally fine!!” Major guilt trip!! But needs must I’m afraid!! I’m slightly redeemed in his eyes by bringing cheese slices and beef twists! ‘Hmpf, well if that’s the best you can do Auntie Andie…I suppose your forgiven…maybe.”

unnamed (14)

Louis, I think its super flattering that you only have eyes for me…but do you ever wonder why the others are pretty good at ambushing you? Lmao!!

unnamed (10)unnamed (62)

Woohoo!!! We did it!! Thats us all caught up folks. Time for bed, where we dream of tomorrows adventures with all our beloved friends xxx

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?!’

unnamed (63) unnamed (64)

Some stunning group photos…

unnamed (65) unnamed (66)

Two of my favorite squishy faces!

unnamed (69) unnamed (70)

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…

Check out the truly beautiful faces I get to look at everyday! unnamed (74) unnamed (75) unnamed (76) unnamed (71) unnamed (72) unnamed (77)

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 😉

unnamed (78)

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!

unnamed (38)

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 😀

unnamed (39) unnamed (40) unnamed (41)

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!

Looking out over Arthur’s Seat…

unnamed (56)

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….

Giorge taking five in the shade…

The loving couple 😉 So funny, they always pose the same way!!

It’s been a fabulous first week back, Gus’s Friday face says it all!!

unnamed (36)

Mud-Pie and Bluebells…

It has been a little while since my last post, we have started building up some footage of our walks again for another little Four Seasons Movie! So watch this space! I was inspired to make another one after watching the amazing youtube clip below. I have to admit pretty openly that this video is amazing and I’m WELL jealous!!! I think that its a better music video for Pharrell’s song ‘Happy’ than the official one! Plus that cat must literally be the coolest cat that ever lived, surfing and swimming like a dog…oh yeah!

We are enjoying the springtime sunshine when we can get it!

Mister Ruben was sporting a sore shoulder last night. Even though he was fine this morning and bouncing around like his typical Boxer-pup self we though it best to have a leash walk today…colour Ruben none too impressed!! Its just to be on the safe side puppy honest! Back to normal tomorrow!

P1220217

Lush green woods…

P1220218 P1220224

Everything is so beautiful this time of year!! What you can’t see in these photos is the sheer number of bugs though :/ My legs (and weirdly my ahem….bum) are COVERED in bites…..ARG!!! SO ITCHY!!

Maud and Colin make a bee-line for the muddiest puddle! Part dog, part hippo…

P1220234

Proud as punch with herself now!

P1220235 P1220237 P1220240

Molly whizzing past, I’m surprised I managed to take a photo of her at all 😉

Enjoying some dappled shade…

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

Yeah, its this steep!!

P1210753

Run Gus run!!

P1210754

A windy hilltop!

‘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!!!’

P1210784

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!
