Welcome to the Clan

Bye Bye Biff

Biffer finished his holiday here at Rock HQ today and went back to his owners considerably dirtier than when he arrived, but a lot cleaner than he was two hours before they arrived to fetch him. He was very good in the shower, unlike Reuben who needs to be dragged kicking and screaming into the shower room. Biffer was so excited to see his owners that he promptly knocked one of them over. So we said goodbye to Biff, and hope he enjoyed his time. He is off to Switzerland later this year to show the Canton of Berne how good the Dolyhir Clan is.

Like glue!

How close do they stick to you? Berners on a walk tend to stay close. Too close at times!

Stay clean!

Biffer as he arrived, spotless.
After a days rough and tumble with Reuben, what are the chances of him staying clean?

As was, back in July 2010 with Reuben messing up the sofa. Well Biffer is back, 3x as big and totally handsome, up to date pics of Biffer on his hols at Rock HQ tomorrow. He arrived, as so may Berners do, absolutely pristine clean, radioactive white bibs, deep russet red and glossy black. He's been here running around our mud bath and hes taken on a different hue already!

Timing. Essential. Here Harry and Reuben demonstrate how to ruin a good pic by looking the other way.

Berners like to be where the action is, to some it might seem like they are in the way.
Bliss thought she was helping as I cleaned out the back stable where the piglets we housed by sitting on the bit I wanted to shovel.
A Klingon headlock persuaded her to move :)

Hows Reuben?

How relaxed is he?

How flexible is he?
How handsome is he?
