Focus on Spotty

Here's Spotty on today's trip around/over Bonsai Mountain. A very handsome dog, his litter name has stuck, Spotty. All our pups get given a quick litter name, usually the first thing we notice about them, so Lucky was just that, a lucky pup who took a lot of reviving at birth and he is now Lucky Harry, a very lovely Berner. Spotty had a small over mark on the back of his neck, just visible now, and he went off to his forever family who called him Rocky. Unfortunately his forever family had a sudden change of circumstance 8 weeks after he left and he came back to us (we insist on this) and so as there can be only one Rocky, Rocky II had to revert to Spotty. His real name is Dolyhir Tropic Thunder, which is far more impressive. Just like him.

Mmmm Tasty!

Buddy is finding his paws with his new owners and is sampling tasty treats. The mint choc chip stolen from his owners daughter got him in a spot of bother, not nearly as much bother as trying to sample guinea pig.

Defo Preggers

Vet called today, monster list of jabs, tests, and ailments to treat amongst the critters, while she was here we got her to have a quick grope around Reba and its confirmed, defo preggers. We did think due date 12th June, vet thinks somewhat sooner as the pup she felt was about fist sized.
Anyone wanting to remind us they are on the waiting list please get back to us asap. Anyone interested in joining the Dolyhir Clan send us your details.
Reba's obviously happy with the situation!

The Bernese Mountain Dog Great Britain Club Annual Party 2011

The Bernese Mountain Dog Great Britain Club Annual Party 2011 came round again last Sunday 22 May so Wanda and Nick took Morgan, Reubens brother to see the sights and smells of a big Berner meet. He was bathed before he went but much like his brother this didnt last and he needed a bath before he came home!

Carting is something I have fancied a go at, that and hang gliding, but its got no further than looking at others dog carts, harness and flags annd wondering where they get them from. Super Grandma is off to Switzerland next week so we are sending her with a shopping list. Lets hope the bus has a big boot!

Berner Chopping Boards!

Great news sent by Lianne that the chopping board pictured somewhere below are available exclusively from The Bernershop of the Bernese Mountain Dog Club Of Great Britain www.bernese.co.uk or enquiries@bernese.co.uk

Every owner should have at least one!

Meanwhile heres a pic of Poppy Berner


Chip off the old block!

New playmate

Reuben and Socks seem to have hit it off. Socks has the stamina, Reuben has the weight advantage, so rough and tumbles are funny.

How they change, and how are they so cute? Berners, best dogs in the world!

Rocky and Reba taking a peek around the stable door, trying to work out what sort of dog Rainbow is. See www.talesfromtherock.com to find out!

Strong in the Arm

Stronginthearm! Not a heroic Viking.

But how you have to be.

If you want to play fetch...

Kitchen aid

Spotted in the kitchen of a Berner fan, a chopping board with a cartoon of a Berner counter surfing, don't ask to buy one we don't know where its from but we have seen the real thing in our kitchen!

Poppy B

This is Poppy, a Berner owned by Tracey's uncle and aunt, Rodney and Maggie. Uncle Rodders had Berners when Tracey was growing up so its

probably his fault that we have Berners now.

But without dogs like these life would be a lot emptier so thank you Rodders!
