It was my lad Gus’s 4th Birthday this week. We celebrated with walks with all our friends and venison cheese burgers! I feel so lucky to have Gussy in my life, this cool little grump-bag is my whole word. Love you baby xxx

Summer weather!

Well we have had the two most opposite weathers possible these last two days! Pouring rain and then blazing sunshine!

Time for the photo medley!

Don’t make us go outside today Andie, we can hear the rain!! No don’t try and pretend its nice outside, don’t you know we can hear sounds at a much higher frequency over a much greater distance than humans!? We can hear each massive raindrop as it falls!! We aint leaving this sofa!!

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.

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…’

Need for Speed…

Some days you just get the feeling its a lucky day for taking good photos. When that happens I take LOADS! hehe…

Hugo is all healed and returned to us today for his first walk with the group in two weeks. His mum did warn us prior to picking him up that our resident ‘Rocket-Dog’ is probably going to be turbo charged!!! Hmmm, I dunno…looking at that ever so slightly hyper expression before the walk… ‘What do you think Hugo?’

‘Well Auntie Andie, I FEEL THE NEED FOR SPEED!!!!!!!!!!!’

P1210685

RAAAAAAAARRRRRRR!!!! RUNNING!!!! I LOVE RUNNING!!!

P1210699

WEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

‘Ok, I feel normal again now.’

Honda and his buddy Smudge. Considering Honda kinda wanted to eat Smudge at first (‘He’s one of those curly-haired rabbits right?’) these guys have come a long way and are great pals. Trust and friendship between dogs, exactly as it does with people, just takes time. The one major difference is that dogs hardly ever hold a grudge.

An afternoon of Bulldogs and Terriers… and one baby Boxer ๐Ÿ˜‰

Kobi and Ruben’s friendship is coming along brilliantly. It gives me such joy to watch a relationship between dogs develop and blossom over time. What makes it so funny is that they are VERY similar personality wise, yetย Ruben is about a year behind Kobi in doggie manners! I have to laugh as the stuff Ruben does which Kobi finds annoying (barking to get him to play, ‘paw-punching’ etc) , is exactly what he used to do to other dogs when he was younger! The shoe is on the other foot now heheย ย ๐Ÿ˜‰
Ruben is all about Kobi on the walk, he is like a little brother desperate to please so that he is included in the game! There are four other dogs on the walk and yet Ruben instinctively knows that Kobi is the energy he wants to be around most. From my point of view I am delighted that Ruben has chosen Kobi as his mentor, Kobi is one bomb-proof Frenchie! Perfect recall, perfect with all dogs he meets, perfect with all people. He has any more great attributes and is just in general is a brilliant dog for Ruben to learn from. With help and guidance Ruben is slowly but surely getting there and it shows through clearly on days like today when Kobi spends more time playing chase and ball games with Ruben, making him one happy puppy.

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!

BALL, BALL, BALL, BALL, BALL, BALL…..

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.

Muchos fun being had all round!
