Eeeek a monster!

Saw Alfie today from team GB class of 2012. He is a biggun!

Oh that hurts!

Here's Spotty dog looking very sorry for himself and holding his rear passenger side leg in the air after what we think was a below the belt kick from a horse in the darkness. Happy to say that after a few days TLC and painkillers hes back to running round and stealing logs like his normal self. Which is code for annoying.

Mr Brightside

 Not the sharpest tool in the box
 Bear is still refusing to use his poorly but recently repaired leg
and instead prefers to sit in the sunshine and horse pooh.

Crash Bang Wallop!

 Not sure what happened last night but Spotty our most daredevil Berner, seen here in typical pose,
 airborne, lost his get up and go shortly after he got up and went for his late night constitutional. Normally he rockets around and carries several logs, wooden type, off into the darkness but last night he barely moved, cried when he did and crawled into the cottage to lie by the rayburn to recover. Having just cleared all debts with the V E T I made the rash comment that we are about due another visit.
Either there was a dog on dog high speed collision in the darkness, or he crashed jumping a fence or, and this might be what really happened, he got kicked by a horse. Whatever he is on painkillers and on close observation, his insides still work judging by the monster he laid just now and he back to eating (he refused dinner last night) so fingers crossed he is just bruised.

Birthday boy

 Its BooBoo's birthday so he got lots of extra fuss, this included yours truly deciding to weigh him, picking him up didn't go well to start with
 but it was finally managed, hes a hefty 50kg.
 A solid and lovely lad
 soft in the head
 so none of his weight
is brain.

Cooling off

 Rocky leads the way and shows Bear
 how to cool off while their daft owner

This is the last of our snow at 5 ways so they are keen to make best use of it!
