Size matters

Here we have Dotty, five and half months old stood next to Minnie, a chocolate lab who is five and half years old. Already Dotty is overtaking her size wise.

Reserve winner

Despite not being confident in the ring Dotty came fourth in her class, Rocky behind her won his class and also came fourth overall. Top dogs the Dolyhir clan!

Poppy appeal

This is Poppy, Tracey's Uncle and Aunt's Berner who like all Berners is totally adorable, but this one is incredibly shy, I couldn't get near her!

To the Manor Born

This is Bear (Flash) who went over to Ireland to live with his owner also called Flash. As you can see he is a very big lad for five months old, keeping cool on the marble fireplace. Looks like he is living in a palace the lucky pup!

More Fizz!

This is another picture of Fizz in her garden chewing what looks like a pop bottle. Just like her litter sisters here at Rock HQ Fizz likes chewing, digging and eating. She has developed a gluten allergy which means special biscuits as treats!

What a star!!

This is a picture sent by Liz of her puppy Fizz, what a stunning picture! Fizz (Fish) was always the biggest of the Dolyhir pups and she has turned out to be a lovely dog, quite how Liz managed to keep her so clean and sit still long enough for a picture like this we would really like to know! Our two are always covered in grot and running round like maniacs!

Keep watching

One of the nice things about Bernese Mountain dogs is that they like to watch what you do. Here are the girls watching us feed the animals or keeping an eye on us as we try to clear the rubble from the site of a new retaining wall.

Famous Five

Look at the state of this pup! Bliss has had a lovely time playing rough and tumble with her sister, Dotty, and both are covered in a thick foul smelling slime.

Soon after this picture they had their first bath!

Cooling off

Rocky is still hyperactive because Reba is in season, he is either all over us or rolling in the dirt to cool off. I have seriously considered giving him a cold shower hes so excitable. Here's a picture from last February time where Trevor was making friends with him.

Playing rough

Rocky is beside himself at the moment as Reba is in season again. We don't want any more puppies until next year whereas these two have other ideas so we are keeping them on close supervision. Here he looks particularly mental as they play rough and tumble.

Too risky

This is Reba trying to work out whether or not to jump into the pig pen and sample their breakfast. Thankfully she worked out that it would not be worth the risk of upsetting the porkers who have a bit of a temper.
