Picnic guardian

 We couldn't get to a Berner meet today as we had to stay within shouting distance of Rock HQ so instead we had a small picnic which was protected by a large dog.
Who promptly fell asleep on the job!

Pretty in pink

 Ms Turquoise is now officially named, Tasha, which means shadow in Welsh.
 Little and large.

A weeks a long time!

We have had a lovely email from Mr Bo Jangles (the coolest name ever!) saying how happy he is and that it seems like his folks haven't laughed so much for a long time, he's mischievous but always welcoming with his little tail wagging, he's a very happy little chap, even on a rain sodden days like to-day he remains full of life and bounces around the garden taking shelter under  Japanese Maple tree where he seems to have built a den. In all he's had a great week and so has his owners.

Good news on Ms Odage, or Winnie, we were worried that she wasn't very well after a silly vet (you know the type, keen, bored with hamsters with eating disorders, eager to prove themself,  town vet, not like ours, country vets who are used to dealing with animals with real problems like a fence post stuck through a paw or a cow with a plastic chair on its head, yes ours again) any way said vet diagnosed heart trouble and forecast death, open heart surgery, life in a wheel chair and nothing but sadness for the owners. This after a quick dab with a stethoscope and no consideration given to the pups having traveled across the country, moved in to a new home and having left its family, well given that my heart might have beat a bit different. Thankfully they had the wherewithal to have a MRI scan and surprise surprise have a very happy healthy pup with no life threatening problems. We hope to see Winnie at the Berner Treasure Hunt next year and I have no doubt she will be one of the first up to the summit of the mountain.

I'll find my way home

 One third of the Dolyhir Clan went on early doors maneuvers on the Bonsai Mountain this morning
 the thick fog, or low cloud, made it more fun than usual
 this is Elf looking for a way off the top of The North Face Gully
 Viz was not good, I knew the way but the Berners were locationally challenged.
 Quick breather for Reuben and WooZah
 Hes on his own
 Spotty comes back and
 summons Elf and WooZah back again
 and as they ignore him hes off to fetch them back
 Again take 5 while they sort the route card out
 Laughing at Reuben trying to do a quiet dump. Poppy the pathetic triever non Berner clan member joins us.
 Spotty and WooZah
 Reuben and Elf
 Elf and Spotty. Not lost.
 Poppy posing.
 Defo this way follow me
 Tails up follow the leader
 WooZah shows the way
Home is somewhere down there in the clouds.

Settling in

Updates on the Dolyhir Clan who have been scattered far and wide are coming in thick and fast so thank you to all the new families for sending us their lovely pictures and news. Its a tad busy at HQ so suffice to say the clan are settling in and trying new things like photography, Abbie (Ms Fairey) trying for a calendar shot
while Mr Bo Jangles (Mr Blue) is turning his paw to gardening.
Pups have got new toys, heres Misha (Ms White) sampling some
and most have new friends, heres Abbie with her playmate Ruby.
All have had a huge welcome from their forever families, heres Oscar (Mr Green) at his welcome home bar b que.

And like Oscar all have crashed out once the excitement got too much, heres Mr Bo Jangles 

and Luna (Ms Puma)
but the prize for best crash out pic so far goes to Oscar.

Its all mine!

 Reuben owning the sofa, standing room only.
But he will share with lil t.

A bit of a house full!

 Ms Yellow got off to a good start today with a quick bath
 so she was nice and clean to meet her forever family. We had a bit of a house full with up to 9 clan members in the lounge
 Bliss found it all a bit tiring, Reuben lapped up the fuss as usual
 Heres Ms Yellow getting to know her new family
and so we say goodbye to Ms Yellow who travels up north with Mr Mike and Ms Carol. We hope to see them in the future, and as there are so many Dolyhir Berners up North why not arrange a meet?
