Well sadly I suppose it was bound to happen at some point in my career! Being out and about on the hills all day everyday, one day I was bound to hurt myself! Actually my family know me as one … Continue reading
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!
This lovely shot of the crew and Arthur’s Seat ruined by my shadow photo bombing haha!
Ruben and baby Bramble continue to be inseparable. Their antics are hysterical and endearing all at the same time.
Crazy face competition.
Dogs in a row…
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…
My beautiful lady…is in serious need of a mother-daughter spa day. This girlie needs a hair cut and a bath pronto!:D
Gus falling asleep sitting up after the morning walk. Its such a hard life aye munchkin?
So much cheeky-monkey in one photo! These lads would keep anyone on their toes 😉 They are so much fun to work with.
Oh no….they found a plunge pool! Queuing up for a mud bath!
We love Bramble…
We just can’t get enough of these gorgeous mornings…
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….ZZZZzzzzz
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!
Lush green woods…
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…
Proud as punch with herself now!
Molly whizzing past, I’m surprised I managed to take a photo of her at all 😉
Enjoying some dappled shade…
Everyone with their head in a bush….
Off to play chase in the paddock, woohoo!!!
Some Bluebell shots from the start of the week…
The sun has returned!! Yey, after a very wet week where my poor camera has barely seen the light of day! We had some lovely walks today, every member of the gang (am & pm!) was on top form. I am so truly blessed to be able to spend my days in the company of such gorgeous, happy, loving dogs. I’ll never need a therapist…ever! Feeling down? Well here’s 12 happy faces ready to give you cuddles and kisses!! 😀 Oh yeah…
I also have a new puppy lady to introduce today, her name is Belle and she is a four-year old Golden Lab. And as you can imagine, she is as sweet as pie and having a ball staying with us! She did three-hour long walks with me today, met ten new dogs (not including the ones we met out on our walks!) and didn’t bat and eyelid. Off lead from the word go, perfect recall, great manners in general! In fact the only thing we had to teach her today was not to jump out of the car boot until she is invited. Remember folks an open door should not indicate to your pooches to dash out! Teaching your dogs to wait until they are given the go ahead to jump out, down, go through etc is all about keeping your dog safe, and teaching them this rule can go a long way in seriously preventing nasty accidents from happening. Belle did brilliantly, she is definitely getting it and I bet by tomorrow she will wait when the boot is opened! After all, dogs just want to get that treat, or be told how amazing they are! I must give credit to Belle’s owner Paula, Belle is a fantastic dog with them most even temperament. When you spend time with a Labrador like Belle it is so easy to see why people love them…no not just love them, are obsessed by them haha!
Two of my favourite happy faces…’Ball, ball, ball, ball, ball, ball…’
Belle making friends and investigating the countryside at Cammo Estate…
Ella modelling her new haircut! Looking beautiful Ella!
Splish, splish, splash! Labradors and water…
This photo is so funny! They look like they are having a little conversation! I will need to put this on facebook and ask my customers to caption it 😀
Sunshine!! Jackets off woohoo!!
Nothing beats long grass 🙂
Love this photo 🙂
Ruben is growing into a big strong lad! His Mum and Dad showed me a photo recently of his Dad, what a belter of a dog. Love watching this pup grow, can’t wait to do the comparison shot in a years time!
Almost the whole lunch crew in…Belle’s tail totally counts teehee!
More splashing about required now that sunshine has reappeared!
Umm, I think we broke Maud….
One final walk of the day, can’t waste that beautiful sunshine! Time for some portraits with my home-team up on Craiglockhart Hill.
Good posing Gus, you know how to work the camera! Shame about the random person behind you, photo-bombing your shot!
Belle’s turn, look at those sparkly amber eyes!
Right Mum, enough with the photos, play with us instead!! And we did, all the way home 🙂 Happy weekend everyone! xxx
One weekend of sunshine, one week of showers and BAM!! The forests burst into life before our very eyes!! Check out all the new greenery, it is looking pretty lush out there and we are loving it! Winter is falling behind us…
Hugo’s new haircut is looking lush too! What a great job the ladies at Christines Dog Grooming parlour did. How dapper does our pup look 😀 (http://www.christinesdogparlour.co.uk/)
Smudge at his happiest! Being chased with the ball firmly in his grasp!!
Poor Mr Honda has pulled out his dewclaw, it did not dampen his spirits today though! After a few whimpery complaints at me this morning (mostly showing me his poorly paw looking for sympathy and treats!) he was then up for the walk with not a single other sign of being at all effected by his bandage!
Mossy log photos!
I LOVE this photo! Look at them all looking at Gus like, ‘Dude…What the hell are you doing?’
‘Oh yeah, I love to roll about, oh yeah…’
Gus, Molly is about to jump on you…I can see it building in her mind! I know my girl well!
All my ducks in a row 😀
Isn’t that the gosh darn cutest face!!
Maud demonstrating her great ‘greeting’ skills with little Archie, one of our friends on Corstorphine Hill…
Happy tuckered out terrier…with three walks under our belt today we are SO ready for some sofa time!!!
