Birthday Boy!

Its hard to believe but this handsome dude is four years old today! We celebrated with the clan with a special birthday tea of extra fishy mousse (they love it, salmon!) fish jerky (an acquired taste, ours all acquired it as soon as the pack was opened) and of course after singing happy birthday they each got a Jaffa Cake, well its traditional here.

Rocky is a fantastic Berner, everyone who meets him wants to own him and he is now the proud dad of four litters, that's 25 Berners out there with a very handsome dad!

Are we there yet?

Young Berners should not have too much exercise as its not good for them.
Reuben thought he would walk with me and the others to get the post from the end of our lane, over half a mile there and back.
He needed a nap on the way back poor lad!

Disco Diva

Here are two more lovely pics of Reuben's sister Diva, a formal pose above (show winning!) and an informal hug below. We have been showing these pics to Reuben hoping two things. 1. That he learns how to stand properly and 2. It might inspire him to stay clean!

Puppy sweepstake

Sally is expecting a litter, no prizes for guessing who the daddy is, Rockstar, but we are wondering how many pups she will have, she's huge!

BMD Meet 2010

We took time out from Rock HQ to go and meet with some other Berner addicts today. The weather and location was perfect, the sat nav freaked out and sent us on a 73 mile journey rather than the 43.8 miles it should have been. Eventually we made it and met Sonja who organised it and shared a pint and a chat in the Cllytha Arms garden with the owners of Buddy, Charlie, Elsa, Sally and probably some more that I have forgotten the names of, sorry. We took Rocky and Reuben, Reuben needs the social life and Rocky loves the spotlight. Reuben did really well, except he barfed in the back of the car poor lad, then when it was time to go home he hid under the picnic table and refused to come out as he did not want to get back in the car. We got back to Rock HQ safely and he told the others of his adventures before keeling over and snoring his head off.

Click on the collage and the picture will expand, see if you can spot your dog.

Biffers better...

...well almost, poor lad broke his toe and had to wear a bandage dressed as Mother Teresa. Alison thinks a few more days of house rest he will be as right as rain.
