We can't see you
we are right down the bottom of the garden on the old railway platform
Come back up girls it is time to go
Bye Robert see you later
We spent the weekend at Kelso camping out in Steve and Wendy's caravan awning, it was very comfortable and cosy. However I have to say that though we had 11 Irish Wolfhounds between us, not one of them barked whined or made a noise the whole weekend. Except a small wuff from Ebony who was told to be quiet and she was. Some of the toy and small dogs on the site (and it sounded like thousands) never shut up and their ignorant owners left them to it ALL NIGHT LONG! I am not surprised dog owners get a bad name when people like that allow those animals to disturb others the way they do. I never saw one of them being walked and most were locked in cages inside tents! Now tell me wolfhounds are only dogs.....I don't think so!
Here we are at Kelso for Border Union Show
Alfie is here with Steve and Wendy, he says hello to Ebony and Niamh
Ben, Mattie and Zizi want to say hello.
Raven and Alfie
Alfie is happy around the puppies
Raven I don't think Niamh is so sure of you.
We soon had the 'Scottish wolfie camp' set up
Next to the 'Welsh Camp'
Get down Niamh you can't go in the Welsh camp
My dad Indi and me love camping
It is cool in the Gazebo for us.
Niamh makes it to the Welsh camp and goes in to say hello
She found a shady spot and settled down
but she is a curious puppy and wants to check the place out
you are going to share that with us we hope
no it's mine
get back now it's mine!
Ok we can share
Raven loves his daddy
get out the caravan Ben
and you Mattie
How did Ebony get out?
the same way she went in!
Ebony you are a little devil just now
Time to get me ready for the show
first it's time for a 'Toby hug'.
is it my turn yet?
Steve adores Rainbow and wants to take her home to Wales.
Rainbow loves her Uncle Steve too.
Spoiled or what!
Stacking a Rainbow
Steve is going to show her
first in the ring is Raven
he gets off to a good start
but these puppies don't have brakes!
then he starts dancing!
but he soon settles down and runs beautifully
and gets his well deserved first
he is a lovely outgoing puppy
next it's Ben, he is a wonderful boy
he really strides out on the move and takes another well deserved first
Don't I look handsome
The dog line up
Ben and Raven at the back
The girls are here now and on next so mum didn't get pictures of Indi who took a third.
First in is Ebony, Daisy and Nell
Daisy was 2nd Ebony 3rd and Nell 4th
Rainbow and Steve get ready to show
they took first in PG
the bitch line up Mattie got the reserve CC
Show over time to chill
Ben is all tired out
Alfie and Mattie are sleeping too
I think I will go in my van my beds in there
Is that our Rainbow in the Welsh van?
Yes I am going back to Wales to live with Uncle Steve
I don't like you anymore
No mum I don't want you
We were just kidding don't worry.
Raven was playing in the curtains and got tied up!
we got him out and he is fine
Time to go home everybody
Thank you very much for having us Steve and Wendy we had a lovely weekend
see you all next week at Blackpool
Megan was in hospital on Friday to give blood
Like any girl she likes to shop
This is nice I love the colour
A little drink
she needed a sit down after all that
her health check was 100% she's a strong healthy girl
Her blood test was clear everything looks good
she wants to show you her bandage
just as well we brought Morgan, Megan got upset at having to be weighed so we took her back to the van
She is helping a Rottweiler today
Morgan is just so laid back and easy going
We stay with her so she doesn't get upset, but Morgan doesn't move she is so good
It does not bother her she is very relaxed, even when the fire alarms started blaring out she didn't flinch
we were all sent outside and the puppies came out the van to say hello
the fire engine arrives
it was a switch that had gone on fire and it had burned itself out.
Morgan had managed to give enough blood and we set off for the hour long drive home. Please remember it could be your dog next, register them as blood donors too. Contact your local vet or your nearest animal hospital.
Rainbow we are over here
where is Indi?
I can't find him!
He's not in the pond.
So where is he?
Stupid boy! I 'm here
I can run faster than any of you.
Catch me then

whoops here I come.
I will wait for mum

We have the whole beach to ourselves,
it's Lindisfarne ( The holy island) on the North east coast of England
Mia is always in the front!
We are having a great time
Morgan's tongue is getting longer with each run!!
10 minutes later ...see what I mean!!
The beach goes on for miles and we walked all morning....and ran a bit too!!
It was great for blowing away the cobwebs
I am such a happy boy
Rainbow was desperate to get Paddy to chase her
but Paddy ran back to his mummy!
Leaving Rainbow all on her own!
Uncle Neil wants us to chase him
for a big hug.

This face says it all

Rainbow loves her box with its airbed and soft blankets
Morgan chose this one next to her favourite couch.

It won't be long now.

Watch out for the puddles everybody

He is so fast he gets into most of the pictures
The only time we got peace was in the pond
Ailidh walks calmly beside her daddy Brian
I will help her up the hill a little way
' I don't need you kind of help Toby!'
Look out here come that flying Deerhound again!

Mum has been back down to Wales with Rainbow
Mattie was pleased to see us again.
She is a great little character.
We brought Briagh down to meet Alfie
He was my boyfriend first!

I don't mind really
Neither do I!
I am such a happy spoiled boy!

We have slowed down too now.
But Artney is still on the move.
Here he comes again...he is a happy dog.
he was first in line for biscuits too!
and he kept running past as mum was taking our pictures.
He was to slow for this one though.
Hurry up! hurry up I want to run again...
I am a spring chicken!!
Come on Toby keep up!
Mum do we have to walk with him? He is crazy!
He is calling Artney mad...pot ? Kettle!!
I am a happy, hoppy Deerhound.
This is like a game of chess...waiting for someone to move!
so Brian started them running again!
Hoi Indi you stood on my toes!
Uncle Brian would you like a cuddle?
Dad says I am just a growing laddie!
No wonder Toby, you never stop eating!
or drinking...look out Uncle Brian
Well we are all dry but here comes Toby!!
Big wet cuddles for you Brian!
Leads on lets go!
The sun is shining but it's cold today

What do you two look like!
Chase me Toby!
Come on then lets race up to the top of the hill

We are having a great game of chase with the Deerhounds they are so fast
We played Deerhounds versus Wolfhounds...they won!
Get lost you lot Halloween is past now!
Tara and Megan had lots to chat about they are old pals.
We walked miles and still didn't tire out Artney!
He sure can leap!
We've never seen a dog run like he does.
Ok Artney we all give up you are the fastest dog on earth!
we need to cool our big paws down before we head home.
Who is this coming to visit us in Wales?
It's me Rainbow from Scotland
Hi Rainbow come on in and say hello
No I am quite happy to wait in the car
(Till she saw Alfie!!)
Alfie meets Rainbow!
It was love at first sight! Did it all work out?
This face says it all!
Homeward bound with a glint in her eye!!
On the way home we stopped in to visit Molly ( Harry's sister) and Envis
We went off to the Belfast show this weekend with Janet and David
Rainbow loved the ferry
Come and see the water mum
Look mum it is very pretty
No thanks Rainbow I don't like it very much
This is great fun I like the ferry
Poor Megan didn't though.
Torin is an old sea dog and he pranced up and down the deck
along with Briagh who was happy on deck too
Look Megan this will keep you safe.
She's not scared Torin she just prefers inside....well maybe a little
Well she is missing the sunshine it is lovely out here
The sea breeze is great for blowing away the cobwebs too.
This is the life
Princess of the sea!
Are we nearly there yet?
This is where I like the sea to be...on a beach
With lots of room to just run and run
Come on then lets get wet
What about the dog show?
Who cares we will be dry by then.
Briagh loves the beach
We all do
Megan likes to stay close to mum
So do I! Here I come mum
Why is it we walk through the water....
and they jump in it!!
Follow the leader
Right! time to behave and get serious now you lot.
Well everybody except Phil!!
Torin and me are in first
We get 2nd and 4th
Then it's my dads turn
He looked beautiful
Stood well for the judge
Ran like a dream
really striding out
but today was not his day
Then Megan and mum went in
Megan does not like showing so this was our last chance for her
She looked beautiful and ran well, the judge said she was very pretty but she would not settle.
I watched the show with dad.
I laughed when Rainbow went in the ring
She looks so pretty!! (she got first) and best undergraduate.
Next day was Belfast show and here we are getting ready
Torin and me are first in the ring
Briagh waits in the jeep for now
Here we are in the ring
I was first and Torin was second
Phil got third
My dad Indi got a second
He is a handsome boy
This is me with mum and dad waiting to go into the winners line up
I got a big hug from Uncle David
Don't I look handsome
Now it's the girls turn, Rainbow took a second here but poor Briagh wouldn't stand.
Hey Torin what are you stealing!!
Come on run with us the show is finished
That's us finished for this year
so it's back to the beach for a five mile walk
My mum will take a week to get over this weekend!!

LOVE FROM YOUR MUM MEGAN, GRANDPA HARRY, AUNTY MORGAN
AND DAD INDI xxx
Howard enjoyed our dog classes ...but he was really tired!
next day we took the puppy to our dog walk
he didn't get far he is not allowed to walk any distance yet
but he wanted to run around a little.
He got to do that all on his own, just for a minute.
and while his mum pretended to be a submarine...at least that is what she looked like
oh I got water in my ears!
and Grandpa Harry showed him how to jump
The baby was back on his lead, sitting watching all the fun
next he did a bit of traffic watching....after 10 minutes only 2 cars passed him (our road is not busy)
We all got lots of hugs and kisses...again!
My dad Indi stood over Beth and Howard so he could get them all to himself
Look it worked!
and I thought it was me they came for!
They won't leave without you pup!
Our family portrait!
Look out America here I come!
Our turn Indi
Careful dad don't get to close
I'm a good boy dad aren't I
Can you see me
I love my mum best
em I would not sit there if I was you dad
Oops sorry dad didn't see you there
are you ok dad?
Yeh he's fine
We are all posers!
and I can do tongue twisters!
wow who is that handsome boy?
oh silly me it was my picture!
I got lost in the long grass
where's my mum gone?
I'm a right wee Scottish laddie
not even lying down are you wee Toby!
This is the best way to cool down after a long run
Time to go
bye everybody... back soon
We have visitors from America.. check out Potters Diary
They are resting after a walk up our hill
So it is just mum and her boys out for a run
Peace and quiet without the girls
but I love to chase the girls
They don't love me chasing them though! Mum says I have no manners
You don't Toby!!
I love my mum she says I am her special boy
I am just a big irresistible handsome Toby boy
The water tastes better way out here.
Come on dad we better get home to the girls
We are just back from a long weekend break in Northumberland where we met up with Helen, Neil, Paddy, Keilan and Mia who showed us around there beautiful countryside.
This is me and Indi with Bill and Neil
Indi went up to check out our room....I did not want to go upstairs so slept in my van!
Then it was off to check out the beach
We love your beach Mia
I had a great time running around
we liked the seaside lots of room to run free.
Three very well behaved happy boys
Me and my brother (our dads are always trying to see who is taller!)
We headed for a lovely hotel for a drink
and I invited my new mates to join us.
Can we have some milk for our tea please? (They are boys Toby)
Can we have more sugar lumps please?
This is the life
On Lindisfarne Island next day, we had the beach to ourselves
Miles of beach and Mia finds a puddle to lie in!
and it was great to see my brother Paddy again
It's a huge beach but where are the trees?
I need to go now.....help!
Great idea Neil...thanks
Even dad is enjoying the break
We are getting peace to cuddle dad ....no girls to push us away
and Paddy gets all the hugs he needs from his mum
Helen and Paddy are a pleasure to watch, they just adore each other
Paddy is so gentle he loves everybody and everything
Especially his mum
I will have a strawberry now mum thanks.
Indi with his dad another big softy (both of them)
as usual we got plenty of attention and loved it all.
We would never dream of hurting anyone
We met a court jester and posed for a picture
Thank you Helen and Neil we had a wonderful time
