Good luck Wizard we hope you get better soon.
Those girls are so spoiled
I have to lie on a cold slate floor
No you don't Harry you have a big soft bed too!
I have a new bed it is so comfy I hope you won't mind if I don't get up.
It's an airbed and it save's my old bones from having to climb up on a bed.
If I go out in the van...it goes too!
Rainbow and Morgan are out running with me just now
they are both going to have puppies and need someone to slow them down a bit
but I can still keep up with them all...where did they go?
Hang on Rainbow we have to wait for Harry
Come on slow coach, you are so fat you can hardly walk!
I have lost weight mum put me on a diet.
I can still run fast
but ...puff....not for too long puff puff
anyway I have to walk slow for my dad!
and I am getting my figure back...slowly!
yes very, very slowly!
It's all those biscuits you beg Harry!
We don't do that...do we mum?
Halloween tonight Megan, wonder what will happen?
Who knows Harry we have a house full of little devils!!
Yes and while we are out having a run they are all up to no good.
Hey, no chance we are coming out too!!

Right Rainbow lets get wet
The water is cold, but they love it.
Race you up the hill Rainbow
We will just take it nice and easy dad
Where do they get their energy from?
I refuse to run too much, it is not dignified
I may be slower but I made it to the top
If you didn't eat so much Harry you could beat the girls!

anybody could be up the hill before dad!
Not you Harry
well I am first down!
Yes Harry you can roll down!
Just kidding granddad we all love you

This is me at 10 weeks
Megan says goodbye to Howard and Beth and asks then to take good care of her baby
Morgan says' hurry up and take him he bites!!'
Goodbye little pickle we will all miss you very much
I promise to be very brave and not cry....like mum did!
Lulu and Stuart Little have a bit of peace while we go out for our run
This is what we love best
Hey girls wait for me
They never do you know
Megan is on her way back from a dip already and I have just got here!
and of course Morgan is not far behind her
Rainbow is a water baby she just loves to stay in the pond as long as she can
Me I am happy to watch...do you like my new collar?
Look out dad I am going to run just a little bit
Puff, puff, here, puff, I come, puff, mum

Where is she then?
Can you see her Morgan?
We are all here you two!
Oh Yeh so you are

A Rainbow in the Heather!
Slow down everybody lets enjoy a walk.
Can we run now?
Hurry up mum and dad!

This is the best place in the world to walk
Look at this mum!
My pretty girls

Ok I was busted!
Morgan is all cleaned ready to go home for supper
Bye see you all soon
Megan heads straight for the water on our walks
We have our American friends with us today
This way Howard and Beth follow me
Careful here the path is very muddy
Not that Megan cares....look out here she comes
We all made it to the top! Eventually!!
It was worth the walk and the muddy path!
Beth and Howard have come to pick up their new puppy boy.
They have Megan's approval
and everybody agrees
Come on then everybody lets get on with our walk
This way Beth
You too mum hurry up I want my dinner
The girls have a good wash before we head home
and our visitors need a sleep after their long flight and our walk.
Just me and the girls on a run
Of course they head straight for the pond
Run to the top of the hill and back
While me and dad amble slowly up the path
I might have a bit of a trot with Megan
While rainbow and Morgan catch their breath
they don't hang about though!
Here they come again
Morgan is up to something!
Where can she have got too?
She has gone and hid herself in the trees
Megan has spotted her and gives chase
But the rustle of a bag brings them all back again
We all get a tasty biscuit
I hope yours was a low fat one Harry,
We can't all be skinny fat free models Morgan!
My dad is a wizard!
So is Morgan she has disappeared again!
Oh there you are we were looking for you!
She is funny always playing jokes on us.
Where are you lot going it's this way!
We have to come back for you older slower people!
Where has Megan got to now?
Here I am hiding in the long grass
Come on mum I will wait for you.
Morgan has had to have her lead on
aw... she hurt her paw, but was fine
Rainbow and Megan went for their usual beauty treatment
Mud baths again!
I decided to give it a go
well maybe not!
It works for me
I am handsome enough thank you
Look mum I am in the water
ha ha just kidding!
See you all soon...in the meantime enjoy all the holiday snaps....love Harry xx
August 2007 in Northumberland
We had a very unpleasant experience on the beach when Indi and Toby who had happily been playing with any dog they met ( thankfully Paddy was safe at home with his mum and dad) they trotted over to say hello to a dog who had just arrived and the owner started screaming and kicking at them, he was shouting about aggressive dogs! People like this should not be allowed to own animals, he obviously does not understand that dogs are sociable animals and like to meet and greet their kind, yes of course we know our dogs are intimidating but he was way over the top and Toby was kicked three or four times before we reached him. If our boys were in any way aggressive then we as responsible owners would never take them out in public without leads on. Our dogs if they are snapped at will jump back and walk away from aggressive dogs, they never fight back, we know that, so we don't worry about them out in public places, however we never thought we would meet such an ignorant vicious idiot on our holiday.
It is so quiet and peaceful in our garden today
The puppies are happy playing with Lesley and Emmy
They are getting more and more outgoing
Nothing frightens them
and those teddies are well thrown around
Teddy on the move!
McD is such a loveable little boy....how could mum let him go?
Megan doesn't want them to go she is a fabulous mother
(Emmy and Maggie) The puppies have super new homes to go to and they will be loved as much as we are
Ailidh comes for a visit..and a makeover
Uncle Brian is here he is my favourite person
Mind you I love anybody who will cuddle me
Left a bit Vil
All done Ailidh, she does look so pretty
Right dad can we go now?
here come the girls they think they are greyhounds!
how they can run and talk at the same time is beyond me
I am happy to just amble along
Look how fast I am going mum
Here come the girls they have been up the hill and back!
I have not been to well this week but I am much better now
Mum says I can have a walk if I take it easy
She couldn't believe it when I went in the pond
It was so nice and cool on my big paws
I just love to run but maybe a little slower this time
I can't keep up with Megan and Rainbow they are speed freaks!
dad and I go about the same speed
Mum is trying to get Rainbow to stop running long enough for a picture!
Hold on tight to those girls mum or they will be off again!
Yes I was right
Just us then mum
Rainbow is wondering where dad and I have gone.
we went back down the short road
but they went the long way with mum
and were still running around
in and out of the ditches they went
Till Megan spotted dad at the far end of the path
Off they went at top speed
Rainbow is fastest she has jet propelled ears!
and caught us up
then cooled her engines in the pond
Time to go
Come on Grandpa hurry up
puff puff here I come Rainbow
The day will be over by the time you catch up
Cheeky young pup!
If only I could fly!
Well I made it to the top of the hill once again
I have already been up twice today!
Well then we best go home for a sleep
Pauline and David's wedding at Culcreuch castle
My dad was very handsome in his kilt
Mum and dad
We didn't get to go but Aunty Susan looked after us
We got spoiled as usual
and the puppies just keep getting bigger!
Harry and The Rainbow
Rainbow is out for a walk with her old Grandpa
I will wait here while she has yet another bath...teenagers honestly!
A girl has to look her best Grandpa Harry
Well I think you are the prettiest girl in the world Rainy
Thanks Grandpa Harry
Come on then stop posing and get up the hill
Me pose...have you seen him?
Can you get all of me in the shot mum?
Look at my red beard!
Rainbow has spotted something
She is after a hawk!
It flew away!
It wasn't going to wait around for you to get it.
ha ha silly girl
Come on then lass we better head home before it rains
It is still wet from all the rain we had yesterday
no running I am not so steady on my paws.
Ok Grandpa Harry wait for me.
This is a nice gentle walk
I have already had a big run out with the others so I am happy to stroll along
Mustn't get my paws wet!
Not another bath Rainbow?
No just a drink this time
Time to go
Dear Daddy.....Mum has had a lazy day today....
She couldn't make the bed because...
Well would you move me?
She couldn't clean the dog room, not because Rainbow was still in bed
and Indi who is the laziest dog on planet earth apart from me of course
and not because Toby insisted on a half hour cuddle me session.
Look mum there is a big dirty paw-print on the window
What do you mean I did it, I should clean it.
I don't do housework
The ducks won't help
Megan has enough to do...so
It is up to Morgan to help out today
Wait and I will get my duster mum
Toby this is your fault...wait till I get you!
Best start with those windows
Come on Harry you are in the way again!
Now for the washing
Beds to change...it is all go here.
Thank goodness it was all just a bad dream
She wouldn't have a clue how to clean!
I would if I could mum
and as for Rainbow....
no don't go there....
Mum is too busy looking after the new Bribiba bunch to worry about housework
Aren't they so sweet.
Miss Piggy in the front weighs over three pounds and is only10 days old!
I got a visitor to 'Toby hug'!
It's Uncle Brian....
We will all hug him
I won't; I know why he is here!
Is he not up to visit the puppies?
Thanks for the warning Rainbow!
Ooh that tickles....
My turn now...
Don't take a picture mum my hair is a mess
That's better, who's turn is it now?
That will be Morgan then!
Don't laugh it might be you next!
This is so humiliating!
Can I be next mum?
Don't forget to do my tail now.
How did my dad get all wet?
Now we are going to brush you all!
I am handsome enough...you don't need to bother
See what did I tell you!
I won't brush you Morgan I promise
Thanks Uncle Brian
Good he's gone!
Toby that is not nice
Thanks to Sabine who sent the latest puppy pictures from Mary and Phil
Dinner is served!
Kisses for Sabine
Come out you lot we have visitors

Thanks for all the help Vil and Jim.... the puppy box is built up and the room is all ready
and Megan gets lots of fussing...won't be long now
Look out here come the puppies!
Say hello to me!!

I still have trouble keeping up with her!
She loves the water and I am not going in there to get her.
Come on Megan lets go for our run
In a minute Harry I am not finished my bath!
There... that is me nice and clean.
Ok Potter lets go!

Where did she go?
Oh no not again!
It's ok Harry she is just having a drink
...and washing her face!
Take me home mum I need to lie down!
Rainbow and Toby are out helping look for DD who has gone missing
Kaos the Rottie has come along to help
Look wolfies, this is how you track a missing person
See I found Shona, my mum!
But we have to look up for DD.... he is not on the ground
Here comes Janet to help us
We stop for a goodie break
Here's yours Rainbow
Thanks for the help everyone.....but we still didn't find DD.
I'm back out on my run with Megan now that she is out of season.
Best to walk though Harry you are getting old.........
I can still outrun you.....
In his dreams!!!
I just raced her and I won!!!
Morgan is out with Rainbow...mum does three walks at a time just now.
They miss the boys but they should all be back together again next week
they are almost out of season
The girls had a great time running together though
Morgan and I are out for a run together
Mum says I will be a good influence on her.
Teach her to be a lady....now where is she going?
Oh no it's a ditch full of water!
It tastes nice but my paws are wet!
and my beard....who is teaching who here?
This is not part of the plan Morgan!
You should be a quiet gentle soul like me.
Ok here I come start running!
Wait I have had enough!
That was fun Morgan
Lets go back in the ditch I need a drink
It's not often we see you with paws in the water Harry!
Wow! What happened ? You are all wet.
Well there is a surprise!!!
How could you possibly make a silk purse out of a sows ear?
Look at her, she is no Lady.
You can't help love her
Just be thankful you can't smell her!
Where is she now?
Getting a badly needed wash Harry!
Well she smells a bit better now.
Once last drink then home
Watch out Harry
How did that happen?
She pushed me in mum!
Rainbow, you have a show this week remember
Megan don't get dirty please
oh well another bath day soon!
Spin dry you two and lets get on with our run
You won't see me wet and muddy.
Rainbow, now she just loves to be mucky
We have no idea why...maybe it is her mother Megan who started it all!
the muckier the better...
but me, I know how to get a drink without getting as much as a whisker wet.
and while the girls run about playing
I can pose on the hills in my best suit.
You only have one Harry!
And it is size xxxx large!
Wait till I catch you.. cheeky young pup!
That was fun, but I am a bit puffed out running
You can tell Rainbow she is always way out in front of us.
always waiting for us to catch up
She makes me run!!!
what are those girls up to now?
What are they waiting on?
This is an ambush!
Arghhh mum help
Come on girls this way.
Hey Harry you lost a few pounds running like that !
Well help me find them then!
You have more than enough just leave them.
The most beautiful girl in the world....Megan Rose
Megan and Rainbow covered in mud but still the prettiest girls I know
Nice of you to say Harry
Look I am not fat, am I?
No Harry just BIG!
Spring is in the air
No Harry that is the rain!

Chase me chase me chase me!

No I will get my paws wet!
The path is a river!
so spin dry!
poor Rainbow she is so wet!...Want to know how?
She followed Megan!
right through the ditch!

and you all know how she loves to make the most of it!
while I would not DREAM of getting in there!
Well Rainbow is just as bad...she loves water too!
Come on Rainbow lets get you dried!
Hey this is fun!
Puff Puff wait for me Megan
How did I get all wet?
Heavy rain Harry!
I knew that!
Yeh sure you did.
Rainbow is way ahead of us...as usual
Race you to the swamp Harry!
Where have those girls gone?
Rainbow's found the glove you dropped mum!
Here it is.
Rainbow in the stream....that could be a song!
Or Megan in the rain!
How about Harry in the heather?
What about... pack it in mum!
I think the rain has stopped.
But not the Rainbow I am off.
We are going to the pond rainbow

No Harry I am wet enough thanks.

What have you found Rainbow?
A branch mum.
Hoi you three!
What? ....... 'leads on!'
It is decorating time again and our dog room gets a makeover....
Who cares as long as the beds are comfy!
The cuddles are 24/7.
and the food is the best you can buy!

This is heaven
Do we have to get up now mum?
We are not sleeping...just watching and waiting.
I like the colours mum

Does anybody out there love me?
Can we come out now you got us out of bed?
Hi everybody come and join me on my walk
The heather smells wonderful at this time of year
You can see for miles from the top of the hill
and I can still beat the girls to the top
Harry here we are at the top waiting for you ....again!
Here he comes Rainbow
It's my tail it gets heavy after a while
It's his big fat body...he means.
He steals my dinner when I am not looking
Well you two should eat faster
I am so thin I can hide behind a blade of grass
Don't be silly Rainbow
Where did I get that girl!
Look Megan I am not much fatter than you!
I am off for my bath
This is so cool!
See you all soon
Good Morning everybody
I have had a busy weekend, lots of visitors and walks.
Aimee and Shaun came to visit...Hi Aimee
She brought Bud the frog from nursery and she is suppose to look after him...not us Aimee!
Oh no not you as well Barry!
Wake me up next week!
We are waiting for breakfast
It's not ready yet Morgan
Put the camera down and feed us mum!
Briagh and Rainbow ( right) at the dog training class
They don't' work just watch.
While Bill teaches the class
The girls think it is all a big joke..till
You two are next!
We are NOT doing that!
Ok then just stand Briagh
Do we have too?
Come on Rainbow stand
No I don't want to
Is it time to go yet?
Dad's buying fish suppers
I love fish and chips
Hurry dad I can't wait
Here we come
Come on boys this way
Morgan squished again!!
Toby wins the silly face contest again!
Indi takes a break
He is such a handsome boy
Do you think he knows it?
and while he poses the other two are still running around
Do we have to bring them?
Let me go dad squirrels to chase...
Ok Morgan off you go then
There must be some around here somewhere
Leads on time for a walk in the park
Megan, Rainbow and me out in the sunshine
It is a lovely day, cold but sunny
Megan is running around as usual
and we almost collided when I had a little run
but all Megan got was a bent tail!
The girls love a game of chase
these days I prefer to watch
Though I do a little bit of a run now and again
Megan stops only for a minute
We love having our pictures taken
but as Rainbow runs past
they are off again!
Rainbow has taken it upon herself to make sure all the frozen puddles are broken!
That's usually Megan's job so she supervises
Rainbow( at the front) is so like her mother not only in looks
but in all she does...especially if it involves hunting squirrels
I am just happy plodding along.
Those two are soaked!
Yes Harry but we are happy!
Megan even your head is all wet! How do you do it?
This is how to take a drink and keep dry
Those girls don't care
See how dry I am
and Megan is still dripping wet!
she is still a beautiful girl though
this is the funny face competition, Toby first
Now Morgan, who is fed up getting squished!
Megan you are to pretty to pull a silly face.
Ask me why I am not surprised!
Briagh is a lovely girl, but as mad as Morgan was as a youngster
She adores Indi her dad
What do you get a Siamese cat for Christmas...a tree of course! Dennis is so fat he has bent it!
Quick while the rain has stopped lets have a run
Here I am 5 years old already!
Still bright eyed and bushy tailed though!
and I have all my own teeth look!
I can still hear a pin drop a mile away!
I heard that! Who said I was fat?
I am just a big happy Harry
Harry and his harem!
No wonder he is a happy boy!
The rain is pouring down and the winds are gale force but mum makes us pose for pictures!
Megan says... Hurry up mum I am soaked through.
But we always have a Rainbow in our storms...she is so like her mum
Me and Megan are going home now mum and poor dad looks cold
Right everybody that's it lets go
Well maybe one more with mum this time!
You don't want us to go out there in that rain do you?
I don't want to get wet
Come on Toby it is not that bad
Nobody told me Torin was here
and Max Briagh and Penny
The weather got worse from here so not many pictures
You can see how wet we were
We still stopped for our biscuits though
So Toby was happy he came
Torin and Morgan are at the hospital to donate blood
Torin has positive blood needed to save a flat coat retriever who was very ill
He was such a good boy and lay very still while the vets took his blood
He trusted his mum and knew he would be safe
Come on Morgan your turn
Morgan's blood is negative Torin not green!
All over and Morgan is very pleased with herself
Torin is a hero and such a laidback boy
The wolfies were so good and this is such a wonderful and easy thing to do
contact your vet and get your dog on the list to donate blood, one day it may be yours who needs help.
