Apologies for the long gap in our News stories!
Constant storms and floods have meant that my twelve resident Brambledales and I have been - and still are - fully occupied with keeping our heads above water, leaving little time for anything else.
So I am very grateful to those faithful owners of our Mottie x Glen 2012 litter who sent pictures to celebrate their second birthday yesterday.
Above and Below: Lesley Neville and Dewy (B.Blue Dewy), continue their winning ways in the dog dancing arena. (Picture 1 by Allan Brown, 2 by Janet McPherson)
Below: Kim Cosan's Shiloh (B. Blue Shiloh), described by Kim as " A very loving, gentle, inquisitive dog". He certainly looks very elegant here, but he and Kim also enjoy their agility.
Above: Jean Stothard's much loved companion, Bryn (B. Blue Bryn) waiting for a game.
Above; Debbie Heron's Kat ( B. Blue Kat) ready for action, as always and a keen agility enthusiast.
Below (1,2 + 3): My beloved B. Beatrice, who keeps me smiling whatever the weather. Not only one of the most intelligent Beardies I have ever known but also one of the most enthusiastic, agile and affectionate - quite a girl! (My thanks to Laura Grosser, who took these pictures last Autumn - I don't think we have had a dry day since!)
