A dog friendly pub in Caunsall?
A couple of weeks ago I was taken out for lunch by Gill and my doting aunties. They live in Stourbridge, and as we drove over I thought I could guess how this would turn out. You see their idea of a good lunch usually involves mussels and white wine, and the sort of restaurant […]
Thanks to everyone who has been in touch with us about the puppy disaster. You’ll be pleased to know that Jill and her surviving puppies are doing really well now. The pups’ eyes are open and they’re starting to move around a lot more. Soon they’ll be into all kinds of mischief.
Do I detect a hint of spring?
Yesterday was such a lovely day! There are snowdrops in the garden and some of the buds on the shrubs are just beginning to grow. It’s still very early, of course (there was heavy snow in the south east yesterday) and things can still get very cold indeed, but every day the days get longer […]
The injustice of it all . . .
You know I’m not a great fan of border collies, and even less, of sheepdogs, but the puppy disaster that happened to Jill and Eli’s litter shocked us all. I wanted to write something on the blog but just didn’t know what to put. Now, things have settled down, the puppies’ eyes are open and […]
Very bad news . . .
Apologies for the delay but it’s very difficult to bring yourself to announce really bad news and we’ve certainly had a big shock with Jill’s litter of puppies. Jill’s a wonderful character, she’s playful and fun loving. One of her tricks involves chasing her stainless steel water bowl around her pen (or preferably the yard). […]
Oh – NO ! (Puppies again)!
When border collie puppies are first born, they’re just like little grubs. This picture is of a one day old sheepdog puppy Harmless, aren’t they?Don’t you believe it.Before you know it these sweet little grubs are big as chihuahuas – and they don’t seem to be able to take “no” for an answer. I hate border […]
We have PUPPIES !!
Proud mother Jill produced a lovely litter of pups last night. They’re all doing well despite the bitter cold wind we have today. We’ll post more news on this blog – or you can find out more about Jill and the pups at The Working Sheepdog Website.
Did you know our little chihuahua Alfie has his own blog?Just recently, Alfie’s lost his tiny little chihuahua bed because the great big border collie Glen has taken it over!For a great pic of Glen curled up in Alfie’s little bed, visit Alfie’s Blog.
A dog in need . . .
Never let it be said that I’d overlook a fellow dog in need (to be honest, at my height it’s not easy to overlook anything). Towards the end of that cold, wet, snowy fortnight the old stager, Glen began to suffer more than usual from the arthritis in his shoulder. He’s normally quite a buoyant […]
I’m in trouble again . . .
No I don’t mean the picture – that was taken in April 2007 when I first arrived here. When you’re so much smaller than the other dogs (there are about 15 border collies, a great dane and a deerhound x lurcher to contend with) you have to assert your authority right from the word go.The […]
