Here is the first look at the portraits we have had done of two of the clan. Those who are going to attend the 2nd Annual Bernese Mountain Dog Treasure Hunt on 9 June 2013 will get to see this fantastic work of art, meet the two dogs (who may or may not be as clean as the picture portrays!) and better still get to meet Clare Villar the artist. And you get a hot dog. What more could you want!
Anyone wondering what happened to yesterdays posting well yours truly put it on the wrong page so its on the pedals to peak site, log onto www.talesfromtherock.co.uk and click on box in margin, have a look at the team GB heavyweight Alfie.
Today for some unusual reason we had sunshine again, on a bank holiday! Rocky felt the heat
We are hoping to show off a painting of Ripley (Dolyhir Wayto Remember) and her dad Reuben (Matterbern Russian Rhumba) at the 2nd Annual Dolyhir Bernese Mountain Dog Treasure Hunt on the 9th June 2013. That's if she sits still long enough! We have been lucky enough to secure prizes from Wagg dog food, we have invited their dog Dalton to join us but he's a bit busy elsewhere that weekend so maybe next year. Money raised by this event is all going to Hounds for Hero's so please dig deep and donate as much as you can on the day. There will be a treasure hunt, so best walking gear, remember its June so raincoats and wellies in the car just in case. The barbq will almost certainly be entirely pork based (our own) and there will be several vegetarian options for the squeamish and fussy ones ;) We ask that everyone attending think along the lines of £5 donation. Theres a raffle, perhaps a doggy lucky dip, a photocall for the clan and as many games that we can think of and organise on the day. Anyone wanting B and B or campsite details please contact us asap via email for a list. We look forward to seeing you all!!!
Spotty has completed the 30 mile Big Black Mountain Challenge with ease, he got the prize for the biggest dog en route and we would have been quicker than 9 hours if we hadn't had to stop so everyone could pat him. Full report tomorrow on the tales from the rock site. For now here's a pic of the wonder dog on the first mountain of the day, the second one is across the valley, the pimple on the skyline.
