Tuesday/Wednesday catchup…

So sorry folks for crunching these two blogs posts together! I have been getting home quite late these last few nights and once I have fed the doggies, then myself, then tidied, then bathed I am pretty much cream crackered!! I have however managed to finish a drawing (yey!) and will post that up once I have had it scanned properly 🙂 Anyway on with the doggie antics!!

Tuesday

Well on Tuesday I had four whirlwind doggies!! They were all so hyper, even the other walkers in The Dell were laughing as Murphy, Rambo, Ella and Smudge whizzed passed at a million miles an hour! I still managed to get a few photos though on their rare moments of sitting 😀

Wednesday

Today we had little Binky join us for the walk. Binky has  been out with us once before. She must have had good memories of her walk with us all those months ago as she was much less shy this time around and even though it was a bit wet and muddy today it didn’t stop her smiling!

Oh is it biscuit time already smudge?

A Game of Fetch…

Not as sunny a day today but we still had a lovely walk at Cammo Estate Park. Today Archie, Geena, Smudge, Rambo and Ella were all mad for chasing the ball! And I am pleased to say I have finally found one that does not disintegrate in one hour! We almost lost it in a deep muddy puddle but Archie saved the day by sticking his great big nose right under the water and retrieving it, what a dog!

An Irish addition…

Meet Murphy our newbie! He is a VERY handsome Irish Terrier who will be joining us for walks most Tuesdays 🙂 I think he knows that he is one handsome devil hehe! He really enjoyed playing with Smudge and Rambo today who are always full of life and up for a wrestle. The girls (Molly and Ella) were feeling a little more reserved today and let the boys tear up the woods!

We had a newbie start with us today, the handsome Oscar! Joining us just in time to enjoy the last of the snow 🙂 Even though this was only Oscar’ s first day he proved to have excellent recall and socialization skills. He loved everyone, ran around mentally and had a ball! Welcome Oscar!

Amusing golfers…

We had an audience today of amused golfers who stood and watched the gang and myself run around the summit of Craiglockhart Hill. For those of you who don’t understand what golfers would be doing up there it is partially fenced off for the Craiglockhart Golf Course. The gentleman thought the sight of me running around being chased and wrestling with five dogs was very funny! What can I say? Each to their own and I’d much rather run around daft with the dogs than play golf any day of the week! hehe…;)

Running through the forest!
