Indi's Diary 2006
Morgan is very happy with her babies
look out Toby you nearly knocked Marion over
Sorry Aunty Marion I am in a bit of a hurry
as usual, Toby has no manners!
Yes I have and here I come to help mum through the mud
Uncle Brian and Tara
Oops who ran into Aunty Marion?
It was the springbok puppy! ( He should play rugby)
My Toby...isn't he adorable?
We smell food!
Aunty Marion has a pocketful of biscuits.
What a happy boy
Lots of friends to play chase with
and pretty girls to walk with
especially Ailidh, Toby loves her.
Wait for my mum!
The water is vvvvery cccccold
well I ain't going in then!
I don't do cold water dad,
No I will not go in
Save me Toby
so how come she is in the water then Bill?
What is this in our kennel?
Look closely I can see her.
It is one of our new cats
Snow spotted Bengal's...three of them.
Mum built them a big play house outside in the run.
and they can play inside our kennels (well we don't use them very much)
They have their own little kennel inside too.
We think they are beautiful and very friendly
People often ask us how mum manages to look after us all...does anybody know?
Well don't look at me I am too tired to bother.
and I don't care...when is tea time?
I miss Alfie!
Well that was a waste of time!
I know, I know!!
She has a help around the house, don't you mum!
Here she is making the bed!
Tuck in the corners Meesha
there that's better
Just the scatter pillows to sort and that's this job finished
Now I can relax on my play rope.
Do it quietly Meesha we are all asleep ...again!
Hey Rainbow this is Halloween
Who is that?

Oh those pups are thick!

I'll get her back for that.
Where has Rainy gone?
arghhh mum help!! What is that?

Morgan wants to show off her new designer collar
Rainbow has a new one as well but it is not finished yet.
Don't tell her Morgan its a surprise.
Rainy home is this way...put your lights on!
Ok let's go
What is so funny Indi?
Dad's home and he has a big surprise for us.
We love you dad....what have you brought us?
It's our new bus!! We can go out again on our run.
We need more room though, we have to take out the seats
Leave this seat for me dad I like looking out the window.
It's our wolfhound size stretch limo!!
This is better I can really stretch my legs up here.
Thanks dad we think you are the best in the world.
Here comes the rain...again!
Toby look isn't that beautiful....quick
Let's catch the rainbow
Well we tried, but it was faster than us!
It even beat me and I am the fastest dog in the world!
No Toby you mean thickest!
I got my brains from you dad!
Well you must have dropped them Toby!
He loves me really
We are having a rest before a very important job.
Harry is resting too but then he always does!
Rainbow has her own sofa to sleep on
She does love her comfort
Is it time yet mum?
Here I am at the hospital to give blood again
Don't worry they won't hurt me
Alistair is taking very good care of me
and my blood will save another dogs life tonight.
dad says I am a hero
Now it is your turn, call your vet and ask about donating your dog or cats blood.
Give blood save a life, tomorrow it might be you.
Toby says hello to Uncle Brian at the SKC show
I get to hug Uncle Brian too
He wants to go back for another Toby hug
Dad gives in!
He loves hugging everybody
David is helping get us ready for the show
He loves wolfhounds...
who could resist a Toby hug?
Meet A Stor he is 3 years old and has come for a visit.
A Stor and owner Rosaleen
Lorraine, John, Rosaleen and Toby
he brought along his friend Rosie for a run with us.
Now Toby its time for that run you promised me
Not while I am getting my picture taken Rosie
I will chase you Rosie
Go on Rainbow catch her
She is so fast I can't see her! Where is she?
Well what is a walk if you don't get mucky!
Come on Rainbow lets play a trick on Rosie
Run fast Rainbow, into the long grass so we can hide
Where have those wolfhounds gone?
Wow what a fright you gave me!
That was fun Rainbow, we fooled her.
Follow us Rosie we have a huge pond here.
Careful now it is very deep and you only have short legs
Rainbow will you look at this!!!
What are you doing A Stor?
I was swimming Toby!
Rosie can swim too Toby!
It is easy to swim Toby try it
No it's ok I am happy to walk thanks.
Move over Torin we can't stop!
10 dogs 3 people....this will be fun! (Sky is back for a weeks holiday)
Torin and Toby skip up the hill together
and Morgan looks happy to be out with her friends
Janet ( the pied piper of Shieldhill)
Come on mum and dad I will wait for you
Will you two hurry up!
Where is Janet with our treats
Wait till we are all together Toby
Torin, Sky, Megan, Morgan and Toby (they just pose naturally)
Toby is just a huggable hound
Wrong way again Toby!
You won't find any mushrooms Briagh...Olga picked them all!
This way everybody...move along now.
Why what are we missing?
Nothing, just waiting on our people as usual
This grass gets in your ears!
come on you lot follow me
mum stayed behind to take more pictures
Megan went back for her..she won't go anywhere without her.
This is how a well exercised healthy hound looks, can you see the muscle on Briagh?
Load up you coats with lots of mud everybody
Splash in it, come on we need to be really muddy

Penny is our pack leader...for now.
Toby just does not listen...look at Megan's face!
Mum and Olga take us out for our walk
Well come on then hurry up
Olga is from Poland, she is helping to look after us
Not that we need much help
Now where do we go?
Olga has biscuits for us
We always get our picture taken here
Come on then Olga we will show you the rest of our walk
Olga loves the countryside and admires the view
Morgan leads Olga the wrong way
but we show her the path!
This way Olga
What is she doing Indi?
What are you picking mushrooms for?
Olga says the mushrooms are good....well we will take your word for that Olga!
I prefer my biscuits thanks
Lets see who can get the most mud on them
No you don't
She is a champion mud collector
Did I get it all off Morgan?
Come on Toby we are going now

Quick lets go and say hello
Yes on you go but your not getting my sun lounger
Its Vil and Jim
Move over Morgan it's my sub bed
Get off Indi you will break it.
Well you get down then it won't hold the two of us
No I am not getting off it. I had it first
She was soon back inside for a cuddle though
So was I ....well who cares about the sun lounger we have nice soft beds in here
and I love big hugs from our visitors
Toby would rather cuddle dad, he is a big softy
and he adores his mum too.
Vil and Jim have come to see the puppies
but we think there was a plot to kidnap one
So Morgan was put on watch
She made sure there was nobody hiding up jumpers.
The puppies are safe in their crate out in the sunshine
McD is tired out with all his running around
Maggie is just a typical female and has lots to do
We all go out for a run together
Mother and son...can you see the resemblance?
Wait for us you two
We have been up to the pond and back
Do they ever slow down?
Just as well this is a big pond
Come on then race you to the top

Nobody ran with him
Mum has the biscuits today
Ok back to the run
Morgan how did you get so dirty
If I lie down here nobody will see me and I can frighten them
Where has Indi gone?
Boo! Oh Indi you gave me a big scare.
Sorry Morgan but it was funny.
Time for a cool dip
Toby has used up all the water again
I didn't get much!
Now if the sun would just come out to dry us all
Thanks for our walk Vil and Jim see you both soon
Looks like Morgan is not going to get much peace on this walk
I don't want to play chase Indi leave me alone
Hey Morgan are you not coming in the water is lovely today
Did anybody bring me a towel?
Come on Morgan we are waiting for you
You can wait I am not playing with boys

Pigs will fly first...

Come on lets chase Morgan again
Don't bother yourselves boys.
I am going for a dip in the pool
Good idea Morgan
Leads on ! Time to go.
Saturday morning and we are going to Leeds show, let us out then mum
We only had 100 miles to go and then disaster the van broke down
They needed a big lorry to take us home 124 miles away!
But the breakdown service were excellent and took great care of us
Watch we don't fall out dad
We got home at 12.30 am , loaded the Range Rover and headed off again
Our judge was John Lewington from Australia here he is with Phil (Marlaw Hounds)
Toby laughs at everything...and Torin wanted out of the rain.
Toby was as good as gold for his daddy!
and so was Torin for his mum
but it was Susan who beat us all today taking a second with Ralph
Well done Susan, you deserved it.
never mind Toby we still love you.
right now it's mum and Rainbow's turn
Rainbow is such a pretty girl we all adore her
there were 11 other girls in the ring so we had time to relax
Rainbow you don't have time to sleep.
We took 2nd to Anne's CC winner
Hazel and Anne took the CC's well done girls well deserved winners
Can we go home now I am tired
Dad take me home I hate the rain
The sun came out for our picnic and Toby is happy again

Ralph has had a lovely day out he is such a good boy
Time to head home
Bye Uncle David

On Saturday we went out for a run.... all 10 of us

but being the best of friends we stick together
Megan cannot resist the mud. she just does not change
We have to wait for the old one's!
Janet got mum a birthday cake with 'you're old' on it!
but Janet doesn't have a website....and she is older!
She will get you back though mum.
If she remembers!
She won't forget!
Here they come the 'over the hill' gang.
I wonder if we will be as slow when we are that old.
Don't let Janet hear you she has the biscuits
They are in this pocket, I can smell them
Come on Indi my mum has biscuits
Have you lost something Penny?
There are no biscuits left Morgan.
Sky is having a great holiday
Toby is besotted with her
and so is Max!
Here we come
Oh it's you Rainbow I thought it was Toby...again!
Rainbow is always going off on her own doing her own thing
While we are all sniffing around together
Come on Indi lets go down to the swamp
We were just walking along when
What's that hiding in the long grass?
It's ok it was only Megan!
Is it safe to come out now Torin?

Next we go out for a lovely walk just girls together
Megan is glad of the freedom away from the puppies
The girls are all getting on well with Sky
Especially Rainbow who thinks it's great to have someone her age to play with

They stop for a picture
Come on Sky lets run again
Wait girls we have lost mum

Rainbow has been in the ditch!
Sky went in too!
and Megan will need a wash before she goes in with the puppies!
The girls have a dip in the clean water of the pond
Sky finds a nice clear spot all to herself
Our turn now
Hey dad the girls have been up here.
I can't see them
I can't hear them
Can you ?
They must have gone home without us
It is much more peaceful without them
It won't be if they hear you saying that Toby!
It wasn't me I never said a word
If I keep my eyes shut they won't see me.
Hi mum I didn't see you there
Follow me dad
Oh Toby you are going the wrong way
Come on it's this way son
are you sure dad?
hmm...no not really!
I know, if we follow the girls scent we will get home
Good idea, just don't tell them or we will never live it down!
I got something right!
Look there is the van! I did it!
I won't tell him if you don't!
No we are not flooded it's the pond
Sorry England but it's our turn for the sun
and we are making the most of it
after the rain there is always a beautiful Rainbow
We are a bit drier today
Yesterdays walk was wet but it kept the midges off us.
The won't get Morgan she is to fast!
So is Toby
Dad and boy!
I got a big kiss from my daddy

Mum is having her picture taken

The grass is really long it almost hides Toby
Watch you don't fall in mum!
Rainbow is splashing me!
Leave some for tomorrow Toby!
Come on then leads on everybody
Meet Karen and Brian in Scotland on holiday
They are from Kansas and have 3 wolfhounds

He loves visitors
So do the girls
everyone wants a hug....sorry Karen
and Toby has to give a 'Toby hug'
Brian wanted to get a hug
he got more than he bargained for!
But we think he liked our group hug
Poor Karen got a 'Toby hug' too.
I was a good girl I have manners.
Toby just loves people
The puppies slept through it all
The rain has stopped so we are out for a run
Hey Toby come up here and see the view
Oh yes I can see the mountains
right enough of that lets run
good idea wait for me
Rainbow is in the ditch!
Come on you lot, bet you can't catch me
This is what we love best
running in the hills
getting covered in mud!
and getting soaked
It makes us smile
Much better than a dog show
Last one down the hill is a rotten egg.
How are you all wet again Rainbow?
She was in the ditch again
I think there is a squirrel about dad
I can hear it
but I can't see it... can you?
Yes look he is up there.
Come on down squirrel
He won't come down lets go
Look out mum
Where is everyone

Well wait for me
Here comes the mud monster!
That was not funny
Well blame mum she writes the captions!
We have to wait on the old one's!
Cheek we can outrun you two any day
Noses up everyone
Scenting the wind
That blew the cobwebs away!!
Come on mum lets go up the hill again
Ok follow us then
Lots of nice scents here.
I think this was where a fox has been.
which way did he go then?
I can smell fox in here
No sorry it was Toby!
he was behind me.
Follow the leader.
Look what I have found.
What is it Rainbow?
It's a ...a....I don't know.
It was a moth Rainbow.

She is being silly!
Well it might get me!
Run Rainbow it's coming!!!
It can't move dad sat on it!
Our dad is so brave.

Now what is he doing?
Just leave him Rainbow he will catch up
Come up here Toby get your picture taken
Not like that you silly boy
Look this way Toby
Oh never mind just cut him out mum!
Tails up! I am out for a run with mum and...
Max is here too so that means...
Briagh and Torin must be out with Janet
dad's not here he was at Blackpool show
and Rainbow was with him so I don't have anyone to play with
Morgan won't play with me.
Don't even think about it Toby!!?
Come and have a biscuit Toby
No you can't have them all!
Now where has he gone?
Torin doesn't want to play chase either
He says he is all grown up and doesn't play chase anymore
I will play at being grown up too
Look I didn't chase Penny
This is boring being grown up....
Just look at that stupid dog now!
Running in circles chasing himself!!
He's not with me I don't know him.
and he fell in the mud!
at least he goes for a wash
Leave some water for us Toby
We had a lovely walk
and Morgan has forgotten about Toby being silly
Mum, Morgan and Toby are jumping on their beds!
Morgan quick stop mum's here!
It wasn't me mum it was Toby
Yeh Yeh blame me...
at least my Rainbow is a good girl.
and my new babies are very well behaved
they are getting so big
Little Midge is doing well and now weighs over 2lbs
These two weigh over 4lbs
12 days old
Barry came to visit and Toby was first to say hello...as usual
He heads of to the goodie cupboard
He brought some tripe sticks, yummy
Go get them boys
Go get it yourself!
What's he doing mum?
Don't throw them Barry we don't do fetch.
Quick he has gone for more.
Monster pup or what
Miss Piggy almost 4lbs!
She is so sweet
see the difference!
She makes a good pillow though
1st little boy
Night night puppies
We are at Three Counties show
Rainbow waits patiently while I am in the ring
Now I am waiting for her! I got a third today.
There are lots of pretty girls in her class so it might take time
The class is spilt in two
so the girls all have to wait
And as usual they get bored waiting and do what wolfhounds do best
Then the heavens open and down comes the rain
Rainbow stands perfectly she doesn't mind getting wet and she got third as well.
Can we go shopping now mum?
There are lots of nice things to buy here
Look Rainbow lets take them to that stall
This is a great place
We like fudge
Then it's back in the car for the seven hour trip home.
At least we don't have to drive
We had a great time here it is a lovely show
and while we were away the puppies got bigger! Thanks to Janet for looking after them.
What is all the fuss about?
We have new brothers and a sister
So while Morgan and I lounge around as usual
and Toby does his own thing..as usual
Megan is busy looking after the new arrivals.
The two males are at the back
Megan is a great mother and the pups are getting fat.
and Rainbow keeps her company
Best leave now and let her rest......
Meet Digby, he is a show dog and attends our classes
Digby is a Dandy Dinmont..cute isn't he.
But not as cute as Rainbow
Dad runs the class and Rainy demonstrates for him
But she prefers to sit with Briagh and watch from under a chair.
They can laugh at the dogs having to do the training
Look Rainbow here come Digby again
He can smile too.
We are off to Stirling castle
Are we there yet?
Lewis went with us too.
He is from Liverpool
we just hope he is strong!!
But Uncle Pat waits close by just in case
This is Michael he is a friend of ours
We got lots of attention as usual
Uncle pat bought us an ice-cream
We liked them...but they are a bit cold.
Not easy biting into one
Toby managed to lick his
But I just didn't get the hang of it.
This is good dad...
There all finished
Mum and Uncle Pat with Toby sitting on the castle wall
Now we are off to the Falkirk Wheel
Can we have another Ice-cream?
Mum where is this wheel thingy?
It's behind you Toby!
dad what is it for?
The canal boats sail in and get lifted up to the top of the hill Toby.
We said hello to the kids in the park and Toby told them about the wheel
We had a great day... come back soon Lewis your our pal.
We had a great run on Saturday
Toby loves the hills to play on
Nobody bothers him up here and he can run all day
We can all do the things wolfhounds love best
Jumping in muddy ditches!
Exploring every blade of grass
making sure we have every bit of mud on us we can, before we go home!
Then washing it off again.
and spin drying.
a nice leisurely stroll...not often that happens with those two!
While dad practices standing me
Left leg back a bit Indi!
How do I look now Morgan?
Great! now come on.
Toby and Rainbow get ready to race
Time to go

We are ready mum

Shona holds onto us at the SKC
We look a bit cleaner and tidier today!

Rainbow stands for dad
Ailidh stands for Brian
Morgan gets back in the shade...Scotland has fabulous weather!
Back home with the family( Rainbow is on the sofa)

The Torteval gang were waiting for us when we arrived at the IWH Club Show
Toby in the ring with dad...they didn't win this time
Indi says hello to Branigan
Me and my dad in the ring
I was as good as gold and won first place.
Dad lets me sit on his knee.

Toby is desperate to say hello
Say hello nicely Toby

Come on Toby run... there is the river!
OOOh it's cold dad

Leads on then boys

Chris struggles to carry his third plateful back to his seat!
You have got no chance Briagh!
No it's not a spring lamb...just Toby acting the goat!
Look out dad he will run you over!
He maybe a show dog but he's as thick as mustard
Unlike Briagh who managed to persuade Chris to feed her chicken.
How does she manage it Toby?
Stick with me Toby lets go get Chris to feed us....
Take us back dad
He is a pushover for a pretty girl.
Here you are Briagh more chicken
Hello! I am here too!
My mum will feed me.
Hoi! What about me?
Toby wants Chicken!
but Aunty Susan wants a hug first
Ok Chicken now....
Ralph practices his stand for next time....
Chris and Susan their sits!
My dad is taking me to dog classes
When are these lights going to change?
This is Lilly she liked me.
Look mum this is what happens when you bath a wolfhound...they shrink!
I am not a wolfhound I am a West Highland x Yorkshire Terrier.
Ha ha ha
So you think that was funny do you?
Lets kiss and make up!
Harley and me are best buddies now
Hey she's pretty who's that ?
That is Poppy Toby, now come on lets get the class started
Harley and Casey are keen to learn
Hey Harley...where are you going?
Home Toby.... see you next week
Bye Toby we are off to Cruft's
Morgan gets her head down in the hotel
Next day at Cruft's we just chilled out and looked good!
Here I am in the ring with my dad
and Morgan, who doesn't have a care in the world
She was as good as gold, but didn't get placed this time
Rainbow gets a third in a class of 11
and later relaxes at our favourite hotel
Next morning she has a great run with Briagh
They had a great time chasing each other
Briagh followed Rainbow
Then they swapped!
Torin and the others joined them
Posing for pictures outside 'Guys'.
Me with Uncle David and Aunty Janet
then we went for a walk along the towpath
Watch you don't fall in Torin
Hey Indi this water taste's nice.
So it does Torin, but boy is it hard to reach!
Briagh and David under the bridge
We have to wait for them, they stopped to talk to someone
Come on you two.
Torin you should try the water in the river it is lovely and cool.
Rainbow and Morgan have a dip
Briagh and Rainbow are water babies!
Just like their mother!
Come on Morgan this is fun!
We had a super time in the river
Splashing around like puppies
The water was quite deep here
But I kept my tail dry!
Look out here comes Briagh!
The girls wait for us to catch up
We were looking at the boats
That was a super walk
Time to head for home
Nice to get back to our own beds!
Toby and me don't know which way to run
but Morgan being a female knows exactly what she wants.
I am practicing my show stand, what do you think?
This is why Toby is not going to Cruft's! ( He did qualify)
He is so full of silly nonsense, but we all love him to bits.
He doesn't give us any peace....chase me chase me!]
and we do...most of the time
well who could resist that face
here I come Toby
we have such a great time together
and we keep mum fit.
though we need a bit of a break now and again
Hang on we've got to chase Toby again!
That should keep him happy for a few minutes
have you had enough yet?
No chance come on lets go
Ok Toby lead the way son.
he is such a happy boy
never a bit of bother from him
yes he is Indi, he is always pinching things
He pinched mums gloves and chewed them
then there was a loaf of bread last night.
well they left it out in the kitchen I thought it was mine.
The worktops are not there for you to help yourself Toby
Says Morgan the biggest thief of all!
Now what is she up to?
Waiting for you two to chase me now come on
'The stand off'
Morgan looks away at Toby
so I hide
Oh no Toby has seen me!
but Morgan hasn't
Toby told her where I was!
well I didn't know why you were hiding!
they have both gone...wonder were they are
Dad were are you?
Ha ha I was hiding behind you son
That was funny
Toby quick come over here, Morgan has spotted a deer.
what's a deer dad?
its something to chase but it has gone now.
ok then I will chase Morgan instead.
hi mum do you want a cuddle ?
and a big wet kiss?
Hugs from everybody
Morgan ...isn't she so pretty
ahhh..it's a dogs life!
see you all at Cruft's
Here we are at the show in Edinburgh on Sunday
Rainbow gets a practice outside
She took a second to me
Briagh pretty as a picture, took a third
Janet works hard with her
and she stands perfectly, but is still shy with the judge
Making my dad run!
Right mum lets get in there.
This is me, first and best in group
Look out Cruft's here I come
'Rain who cares'! look out forest here I come
We are just so excited we love to run
That is enough of that running lark!
Look out mum here I come
What was the point of jumping the stream them walking in it Toby?
Is this a 'Rain dance'
No just Toby annoying Morgan...again!
Here mum you look all wet!
Where are they going?
Wait for me
Here I come Morgan... slow down a bit!
She didn't wait on me.
Here Toby I am waiting on you
Mum! I want to ask you something
I am all wet now, can you make the rain stop mum?
Toby you got wet standing in the ditch!
Look at him he is mad!
Ouch Morgan that hurt!
Look mum she stood on my paw!
Right that's it boy I am gonna get you!
You told on me and I got a row.
I am not playing with you go away.
She is a grumpy young lady today.
no I am not...I have a piece of grass stuck in my teeth..look!
ha ha ha
I am soaked through can we go to the pond for a swim now?
The water is lovely and clear, I can see the bottom.
Not after Toby jumped in it wasn't!
ha ha ha
Where did Morgan go?
She is up the hill here Toby
Look up there!
Don't tell him Indi I am hiding!
He won't see me if I stand very still behind this twig!
Oh no here he comes
Where is she dad I can't see her!
I will hide in here he won't catch me
Morgan is going to miss her swim
Where is she now?
I don't know son, we will just have to wait on her
Here she comes now Toby
Thanks for waiting on me boys
Come on then Toby lets get you home and dried
I hope you are not going to bath me again mum!
I don't need a bath I am suppose to smell!
Leads on then
Time to go.
Morgan tries to sneak up on me
What a fright Indi I didn't know you where there!
Toby and Rainbow charge around the garden
Then all the nonsense starts
It is all good fun
At least Rainbow thinks it is.
and I just love silly games, I am still a big puppy really.
a break for lunch
a bit of a snooze
Time to get up again everybody
Then off we go again....
any chance of a cuddle mum?
Rory and Beth's daddy sent us these pictures from the show....they make us look like giants.
You are giants, silly dogs!!
Here we are at Rutherglen show, dad bought us treats
Wonder if there is a wolfhound pen?
No we will just have to sit in a drafty hallway.
Still we had a laugh and we were all dressed for the cold
So are we going to get one of those treats then Bill?
Look what happens to greyhounds when you wash them Briagh.
Don't listen to him lass it was a whippet!
I knew that!
You are funny Bill.
Now I want you to stand nicely in the ring Indi
For a sea biscuit I will jump through hoops!
How much longer do we have to wait?
Well I may as well sit down for now
Oops I don't think Pauline wanted me to sit on her knee!
Sorry Pauline I didn't mean to hurt you
Lynne has a girlie chat with Morgan
So now Morgan is wearing pink, it is nearly valentines day and she is looking for a dogfriend
Rainbow can't wait to go into the show
Come on then... that is us being called.
it's show time and we all line up
First the Borzoi's have to run there are 18 dogs in this ring.
Morgan gets a helping hand from Pauline
Mum stands Rainbow, who stands better facing me.
Morgan stands quietly for the judge
and runs beautifully for mum.
Briagh and Janet
This way Rainbow
What a handsome boy I am!
This is not how to stack a dog!
Indi was first and reserve in the group....my camera no longer works so no more pictures for now.
We must apologize to everybody who got a hug from Toby. He walks up behind people sitting in chairs and puts his head on their shoulder and hugs them.....he just loves people. My Toby....isn't he adorable.
Janet has brought the pack out for a walk
First stop is the pond
Then the ditch...Morgan just loves the smell of fox!
She is always on the look out for him
Toby that is not a fox, it is Penny!
Quick run it's biscuit time!
How come Toby is always first in the queue?
Briagh waits patiently
No she doesn't, she almost knocked Janet down.
Right then lets move on
Yes Morgan I am following you
Toby hides from Penny.....he thinks!
Then a bath before bedtime.
Me and Torin with the pack on our run
Penny thinks she is a wolfhound
Follow the leader..whoever that is!
Toby is in front nobody wants to follow him!
He went into the ditch and it is full of water!
Here comes Torin
Followed by Toby
Lets stop for a breather Morgan
Can I have one as well Indi?
Yes Toby wait there!
Where is this breather then?
Never got one so I am off again
Careful Penny I nearly fell over you.
Did anyone remember the biscuits?
I will wait here for mine
Look! Janet had them in her pocket.
Me first.. me first!!
Here's yours Penny
Toby have you had enough?
I didn't know there was more!
Well time to move on I suppose
Wait Indi we want a picture with Vilma she has come to visit us
Vilma would like a wolfhound...or two!
Lakeland terriers are nice too!
No they are not they trip you up!
Especially you shorty!
At least I have a brain!
Ok you two that's enough
Who wants a chase?
I have to wait on everybody catching up
Come on Morgan hurry up
Briagh and Max are already down in the swamp
Here I am
I'm here too dad
The pond is iced over
We can't get a drink
How do we get water?
Morgan will jump on it
Break the ice Morgan
That's better thanks
She is the only one that will do it!
Don't sit next to Rainbow Janet...feet off
You won't get peace...that hurt
Now she's done it! You are a naughty girl!
Megan is much better behaved...and Rainbow
She wants to spill Jim's coffee
Don't be fooled Jim she is a little monkey
Rainbow get down....that was a Morgan special!
All is forgiven.
Harry likes you Jim.
Megan knows how to behave and sits quietly with Vilma
Toby and Indi are in the vet hospital giving blood. Toby was not needed today but he will be back.
Hey dad we can start a new trend with our wristbands
Indi still finds time to pose!
See what you are missing Toby! This is the life.
He is a very happy boy surrounded by pretty girls
This is what he donated to save another dogs life. He is just so laid back about it all.
Hey did you leave any for me?
We are so proud of our beautiful boy. Now Dennis our cat has also registered as a donor.
News update ....The dog is doing very well and was able to be operated on after receiving blood from Indi.
Please get in touch with your hospital or vet and you too can help save a life
Morgan and Toby are out with me on a run
Look out Morgan here I come
Toby loves the water

Toby jumps the stream
Hi Toby here we are.
We were hiding from you in the stream!
Come on you lot hurry up
Toby don't knock mum over!
You need to teach that boy some manners!
Toby is a mummy's boy!
He is still growing!
He has to duck down to be the size of his brother Paddy!! ( Sorry Helen just kidding)!
This smells good!
Toby can hear dogs barking miles away!
Off he goes!
but not far he realises no one else bothered!
Toby don't knock mum down!
This is me hiding from Morgan!
Then I am off like the wind
Nearly caught her
That is close enough Indi!
Toby is flying through the heather
That was great fun!
Slow down Toby look out!
Toby and me have another chase
Then he runs into mum again!
Are you all right mum?
There all better now.
What was that?
Here he comes again!
I will have to have a word with that boy!
He is a good lad really
He is off again
So is his dad!
Catch me then dad!
He's not fast enough!
Now what is he doing?

Here he is I found him!
Toby stay with Morgan and don't get lost
but while her back was turned he wandered off!
Where is he now?
He went past here
He was in the long grass
I am hiding from them!
Toby saw me!
He is happy now
He loves his daddy
Wonder what's over there?
Toby and Morgan are very well behaved....not!
One last run before we go
