Indi's diary 2007
The babies are safe asleep in their crates
I have the place to myself for an hour or two
so I can try out all the beds and pick the best one
You are not having my bed Indi
Have mine, I like this armchair (Ebony)
My bed is the best
'Pickle' (Niamh) fast asleep on the sofa
he is not getting in our bed
the wind is almost blowing us of our feet today
but we don't mind we love to be out in the forest
come on Toby hurry up
Ok Harry lets go
he is too fast for me
sorry Harry I will wait for you
I am a good boy
Harry is the bestest grandpa too
but I miss my Indi dad to run with
who wants a dip in the pond?
can I go in mum?
is that ice stuff away?
looks all clear to me
go on Niamh you go first
ok here goes
yes it is great in here today
no way am I going in there
look there's a squirrel
the pups can chase it
he got away...again!
Never mind Niamh we will catch one someday
what would we do if we caught one?
nothing silly we got one once and all stood looking at it
then he ran under our legs and away.
that's just like you lot, big softies
time to go home
This is no walk mum, we are all running!
Artney is here with Ailidh, Tara and Brian
Tara is here she is my favourite Deerhound
Toby leave Tara alone
sorry dad forgot my manners
that's not like you Toby!
oh no he is off again!
get off her Toby you are a naughty boy.
boys will be boys
the chase is on and Toby has forgotten Tara...for now!
Niamh is having a great time.
Artney never stops....barking!
Oh no not again
a cold dip is what I need!
I am a good puppy I always behave
come on hurry dad is getting away
and Toby has found Tara again
Megan told him off, that's why she is pack leader
and his dad had a word....right son no more of your nonsense!
not that he would listen to me!
no wonder, you spoil that son of ours.
well he is my boy.
come on Rainbow lets go catch up Brian
Hey Ailidh do you want to run?
I take it that's a no then.
must be something I said.
no Toby... you have all the charm of a Hippopotamus!
come on lets go home.
Walk no 2
a gentle walk for the 'older generation'
Ebony, the pup who never stops running
First lets have a dip
then a fast run up the hill to catch up Harry who just wanders off on his own.
it's starting to get dark mum look
Take a break Dad
my old paws are sore walking up the hill
it's a long way up
us older people need to rest
it's easier going down
the girls have been to the top and back.... twice!
now its my turn to run
smile for the camera Morgan
she still has a bit of the tomboy in her!
mum come and get a picture with me.
me too mum
right that's enough, I am out of here
just hold on both of you
Take a break Harry
Nice hat Ebony
Don't even think about it mum!
yes she suits it best.
Time to go girls it's almost dark
wait for mum
right lets go
Here we are at the Irish wolfhound Club Show
In the ring with dad
Rainbow next with mum
She stood beautifully
Our judge Alison Messenger goes over her carefully
and she won the class
Dad took us in for the brace
and we won that too
Thanks to Vil an Jim who went with us we had a great weekend
our second walk and Brian and Marion are here waiting on us
Ailidh and Morgan are half sisters
A quick dip then back out on the run
Ailidh is silver and cream, Morgan red and cream
How did you get over there Morgan?
Ailidh and Megan
Artney the deerhound kangaroo cross!
He leaps around all the time
while the wolfhounds enjoy a quiet stroll
and their people too
where has that mad deerhound gone now?
there he goes
We all wait on the others catching up
are there any squirrels here?
look out here comes Artney again
Morgan poses in the leaves
race you up the hill Toby
Toby loves chasing everybody
Artney just loves to run
they make a great team
My beautiful happy Megan Rose
give me a big Toby hug Uncle Brian
Aunty Marion has goodies in her pockets
Ailidh here's your biscuit
We all love Uncle Brian he is the bestest
but Aunty Marion has the biscuits
no she doesn't we ate them all
well I will have a hug instead
trust you Morgan
no biscuits left look
who wants to run?
not me I am staying with my daddy
Morgan is such a wonderful gentle girl
this water is so cool and fresh
just perfect after a big run
whets going on over there?
It is Artney jumping through the grass
catch us Artney
No problem I am faster than you all
He is too fast for us
watch the water level go down!
Megan waits for everybody at the pond

What is dad doing?
Making our breakfast...

We love feeding time!

Here we go again Killarney this time and its still raining!
Wendy holds her pack while Steve shows Raven.
Phil is here with his lovely girls Zippy and Venture
Raven is a handful as boisterous as his sister Ebony!
Alfie took the dog Green Star and Best of Breed then third in the group
Hey look at the view up here you guys
we were heading for Dingle and stopped to admire the view
Oh look a tourist bus

more fuss and cuddles
everybody loved us
we were on our best behaviour
any chance of an ice cream?
this is your one Ebony
oooh its cold on my nose
Emma came with us on our tour
Tomorrow we have another show
the girls were all well behaved
Ebony and Niamh were there too but don't know how to stand still
at home Megan helps with the kittens in the dog room
she is very gentle with the babies
we are practising for the dog Olympics
I don't want to run mum
is there a sniffer event?
or a radar dog?
what about a longest tongue
I could do that one as well Niamh!
I could be a show dog
Oh I already am!
I could maybe do the doggie paddle
well we need it to be a lot deeper for that Niamh follow me
no thanks Ebony I don't like deep water
I can do a pointer event, watch me
HELP! she pointed me into deep water!
Jump out this way Niamh
that was scary
silly pup I was with you, you were safe
look I have two tails!!
Is there a big drinking event?
I think I would win that one Niamh
there must be a special thing I can do
there is Niamh I know what you do best
what Rainbow tell me tell me.
I would say talking!

Hurry up everybody lets get up the hill
We are waiting on you

it is hard to stand still when Toby comes running at you!
come on dad
Toby fetch dad back
they head to the pond for a drink
and a clean up
make sure you wash your face Morgan
can we go for another run mum?
just kidding we are tired out
I don't need a lead on
but it's safer for us when we go near the road
Dad said we are all very well behaved
Time to go
It takes courage to stand in front of charging wolfhounds!
but a commanding voice helps....sorry mum!
We can't wait to get in the pond
Rainbow was fetching a stick!
We just love to run
but never too far ahead
Rainbow goes straight into the next pond!
and wanders off on her own
we wait for mum
here she comes
Toby watches over mum he rarely leaves her side
While we explore
he watches mum!
and when she moves away he charges after her
she didn't go far!
come on then lets catch her up
this way Toby
we're going to have to jump!
come on boys it's only a ditch
Wait for me
What's she doing now?
I will walk beside you mum
just in case you fall
where did that come from?
Best place to be on a hot day
are you not coming in mum?
This is our favourite pond it is cleaner
well it was before we jumped in!
But who cares we love it
except when it gets in my ears!
Time to go home for a sleep Toby
Great that is my favourite!
We are waiting on Rainbow again!
ok lets go
He has his own special style!
Me I have better things to do!
Come on Toby keep up
This is a great place, peaceful, quiet nobody for miles
and we don't have the girls out because some are in season!
so today we can hunt in peace
not that we catch anything of course
everything moved out when we moved in!
Well they didn't have too...we are big softies!
At home wherever we take him
though we all prefer our peaceful hillside to walk and play on
Move over Indi I am coming in
my bestest buddy
come on then son lets go home
He is a good lad my Toby
She has had enough though and wants out.
So she jumped the fence
dad is painting the garage!!!
Niamh is fast asleep and doesn't need watching...but dad does he got paint on her
Ebony will look after her
and Meesha will watch her too it is a lovely day here so we are all outside
Morgan is busy as usual!
Brian and Marion join us on a walk
Toby loves all his friends

Ailidh and Morgan
Artney the crazy deerhound!
The wolfies are having a good run
Wait for us Artney
Can I have a sweet dad?
Marion has the biscuits come on
Morgan is always in first
Toby gets his lead on because he is bothering Tara he has no manners!
I am not like that at all, let me go dad

Morgan stalks a crow!

Toby looks like he is wearing dad's jacket

I have had my coat stripped

where have you been
We have been up the hills and back
Yep it was a great run
Mum and Dad are hiding from us
I found them
That was fun

They are hiding again
I can see mum but not dad.
Dad where are you?
I think he's down there Toby go and look
We found him
Not this stand thing again!
We are out in dads new van
Harry waits for Cat and dad to lock up
Rainbow and Morgan don't wait for anybody they are off on the run
They come back again to let us catch up
Harry is looking great after his mystery virus
and while the girls have a dip
He waits patiently with his dad
then he chases Rainbow
who thinks it's all great fun
Morgan and Rainbow are so close now after sharing their puppy duties
and they take their time for old Harry
Rainbow is having a great time running around as usual
While Harry paces himself for a long walk
Come on Grandpa we will wait for you
is he coming yet?
yes look there he is
We will let him rest for 5 minutes
Hey I am not that old or unfit!!
But maybe a short rest would do my old dad good!!
we always seem to be waiting on him!
Look we can go off road for a drink!
But it is a bit muddy
Still we can have a wash before we go home
There now all clean again
Then it's back to the van
Look Rainbow our pictures are not on this one!
I am on both the vans
Home sweet home
Rosie is all packed ready to go off to her new home
I am not going without teddy!
Pirate says goodbye to his cousin
Or was it because he wanted the teddy bear?
Digger doesn't even notice his sister has gone!
meanwhile Louie is busy with her little family
she has a job keeping them together
They keep escaping
Dennis keeps well away
Rainbow finds one out in the hallway
she gently nudges her back to her mum
