Say Cheese!

Misha sat paying attention to her owner, or a plate of cheese just out of shot on the table! Clever dogs these Berners!

A letter from Mr Bo Jangles

Hi Folks
Hope you've all had a good week barring the adverse weather conditions. As you can see, I have learnt a new trick as i can stand on my hind legs, this helps immensely when begging for food from the table? I went back to the vets this morning, infection in my eyes although they have provided me with some ointment to make it better, whilst I was their they weighed me again, surprise, surprise I've gained another couple of Kilos, I now weigh in at a healthy 34.1lbs not bad really. The rest of my week has been taken up with gentle exercise and lots of sleep, occasionally (quite often) I bite my master just to keep him on his toes and he has plenty of scars to show for my efforts, might start on the furniture next week, see how I feel? Anyways, keep well and batten down Saturday as heavy rain is forecast. Keep smiling & enjoy your weekend Love to all Bo Jangles. X

My turn now!

 Clan matriarch Reba took her turn in getting in the way of the grand design.

Brothers in Arms

 Yesterday I posted two pics of the two of the big lads from the Reservoir Pups, Oscar and Baloo. Oscar, or Oscamps is from the south and Baloo is from the north midlands ish area.
So imagine their owners surprise when on a nice Sunday morning walk they bumped into each other! Real Brothers in arms!

Bessy mates

 Here's a lovely pic of Abbie and her housemate Ruby, best friends.
Who enjoy a rough and tumble.

Me and my shadow

 Little t and Ritchie are enjoying each others company
 in fact they have spent most of today playing in the garden while one of us tried to get on with a "project".
It seems where one leads the other invariably follows!


 The Reservoir Pups heavyweights, Oscamps (Mr Green)
and Baloo (Mr Black) are both doing well with their forever families.


Here's one we were sent a few weeks back of Abbi (Ms Fairey) meeting Ruby her housemate

Crash landing

The Helicrew pup who returned late Wednesday night has been finding his paws
 and practicing his Berner Banzai moves
 before crashing out for tummy tickles.
And snoozes. Lots of snoozes.

This is Mr Chinook who is now Ritchie.

A letter from Mr Bo Jangles

Hi Folks, Well another busy week over, I attended the last of my puppy classes on Tuesday evening after making lots of friends, I'm now in to biting everybody and digging up the garden, as you can see from the photo I'm also in to plastic bottles and cardboard boxes, they taste delicious? I was weighed in yesterday and I've doubled my weight in the last 5 weeks since joining my forever home, I now weigh 14.1kg's and I'm always on the lookout for a little bit more. Really, I'm a good boy and everybody I see wants to adopt me but I'm happy where I am, my owners spoil me and don't I know it? Hope the weather holds for the weekend I get bored when it rains and run around the house like a whirling dervish? Anyways I have to get on, lots of things to do and it's nearly time for my afternoon stroll. Hope you all enjoy your weekend. Keep smiling Love Mr Bo Jangles X

 We are having portraits done of Rocky and Reba by Claire Villar, who also painted Reuben and Ripley and who was kind enough to join us at the treasure hunt this year, so scroll back to mid june to see her and her work.
 Anyway  having already taken 293 pics of Reba and not got anything suitable I finally managed  to get these three, three out of another 300, that were good enough to send to Claire as a reference.
This ones the one I hope she uses.
Watch this space!

 This is Monty a lovely Golden Retriever, a very big Golden Retriever who has been accepted into the clan as a honorary member. He visited HQ today with his parents and had a great time exploring our playground
playing in the river, rolling in scat and finding ditches to sit in.

Ruby Ruby Ruby!

 Reservoir pup Ms Red, now Ruby is a tad accident prone it seems, much like her grandmother. Ruby has so far fell in the pond (her gran did the same) and got stung by a wasp. Aside from that she is fit, healthy, had her jabs, weighs over 10 kgs and is giving her family the run around a lot of fun.


Oscar (Mr Green) the Reservoir pups heavyweight has been in serious training, here he is sloppy sitter mode

and here he is a few hours later, much smarter, the top half anyway!

A letter from Bo Jangles

Hi all Well I've been with my forever family for 4 weeks today, I'm spoilt and get away with murder but they love me? I've wrecked the back garden and as you can see I've graduated to the front Garden which I'm surveying to see what pain I can inflict on the plants? It's been a busy week again, it's difficult growing up, being spoon fed and having to attend puppy training classes which I excelled in this week, or so I'm told. Anyway, I'll continue to grow this coming week and we'll send another blog next Thursday, hope you all enjoy your weekend Love Bo. X

Site inspection

Your kidding right? We're gonna get this cleared by the end of the month so we can build a kennel block. It's a jungle man, look at it!

Spotty being a realist.
