More pics to follow of Dolyhir dogs sent in by their owners including updates from all new pups and a fab one from Ballooo in the garden, IT meltdown prevents it happening at the moment. There are only two pups left so be quick if you want one.

Welcome to the Clan

Mike and Karen called at Rock HQ to collect Ruby one of the KGB litter. We know they will look after her very well, Karen looks after Elephants and Tapirs so clearing up after a Berner will not give her any problems! Gina has sent a set of pics of Reubens and Bonny's litter which will be posted tomorrow, there are still a couple of pups needing excellent homes so please contact us if you think you would like to join our Clan.

Happy Birthday Class of 2009

 A timely reminder from Mel, Harvey Puppy Dogs (HPD) owner that its the class of 2009's birthday today. Time flies, heres HPD with Stretch his rubber chicken
 and here he is now looking like Bon Jovi.
 HPD is a fab boy, he loves his mum, cuddles, chasing rabbits, joggers and sitting on peoples laps.
Here he is looking just like his dad, Rocky. Hopefully HPD wikk make an appearance at the Treasure Hunt and Pig Roast the second sunday in June.

Happy Birthday to all of the class of 2009, Bliss, Woozah, Spotty, Bear, Fizz, HPD, Nala and Brooke.
Rocky and Reba send their love and we are so pleased with the way you have turned out. Thanks to all the owners who keep us updated as to our pups adventures.

Our first outing

Well technically its not, they went to the V E T day two but they don't remember, so today the latest litter sired by Reuben went to the nice V E T for a check over and were found to be very happy, sociable, healthy pups. 
The Dolyhir Clan keeps growing. Anyone wanting to own a Dolyhir Dog should contact us and we will forward your details to Gina.

We are also wanting a girlfriend for Spotty, any girl Berners thinking they could handle such an active and very big Berner should contact us.

Its a Berner thing

 The latest and greatest pet portrait painted by
Clare Villar. Spotty has been captured in perfect detail by Clare. We are hoping that Clare will be at the Berner Treasure Hunt but anyone wanting their Berner painted by an exceptionally talented artist can contact us and we will send on your details.

The Great Northern Warrior!

 Trojan! The mightiest pup from the class of 2011 who went to join the Northern Tribes has just got in touch. His owners Lisa and Andrew are loving having this mighty dog in their lives, hes looking grand and demonstrates just how good Dolyhir Clan dogs are. Family guy above.
 Dolyhir Dogs, we like them big, and they are all lap dogs!
 Trojan has his own Whet stone, just like his older brother Spotty, class 2009.
Dolyhir Dog, so handsome, just like the Rockmeister!

A letter from Mr Bo Jangles

Hi Folks
 It's me again, sorry about last week but my owners were in Canada for a few days so I went on a short break as well but I really missed them.
As you can see I'm getting bigger and bigger, I shouldn't be on the sofa but they made an exception because I'm a good boy with a lovely temperament.
If I keep being good and the weather stays dry, I get to walk in the forest for an hour or so a day, now that's cool and I can run around to my hearts content.
Today has been nice and warm, lets hope this good weather continues, oh well I've got to go now, time for a snooze.
 Hope you all have a good safe week, keep smiling everyone.
 Love Bo-Jangles. XXX

Sofa Creed

This is my sofa. There are many like it but this one is special, this one is mine. I must master it as I master my life. Without it I am nothing. Without me it is nothing.

Dinner Bowl Banzai!

Dinner time makes athletes out of the Dolhir Clan. Left to right, Elf, Spotty, Tasha, Rocky, Reba (leading the Berner Banzai) and Ritchie.

Downhill to breakfast

The mad dash

down the slopes of the Bonsai Mountain
to get breakfast!

See how they grow

No idea

That all fits in his mouth.
No idea how!

National take your dog to work day

It was national take your Berner to work day today. Honest. So Rocky sallied forth over the Bonsai Mountain, across the ridge and down to town in another country where I work. 
He spent a very interesting day
of a hearth rug
facing every which way
and even doing it one pawed.

Forever friends

Puppy fest! Anyone thinking of owning a Bernese Mountain Dog should contact us as soon as possible as Reuben and Bonnie have had a litter, there are five pupppies available and if you contact us we will tell Bonnie's mum. There is a waiting list but not everyone is able to own a Dolyhir Berner so we need to hear from potential forever families. Looking at the picture above, a lovely girl aged three and a half weeks, how could you not want one! Pups will be ready to go last week of March. Call us or email for details.

One for the ladies

Here is Reuben, BooBoo Bear, looking extremely handsome this morning on the Bonsai Mountain shortly before knocking yours truly for six. Reuben is a proven stud and available for selected ladies. Email us or phone us if you think your girl would be interested in such a handsome lad.

Crash bang wallop

Taking half the clan down the vertiginous slope of the Bonsai Mountain early doors is not without risk, especially with a nutter like Reuben who thinks its a great idea to come from behind and push his way through your legs so you can ride him like a pony.
Or fall over.

See how they grow

Ruby looking splendid on a very sensibly coloured armchair. Some Berners are clean. Ours are the other sort :) Ruby will be at the Treasure Hunt.

You've been framed

 aka BigSoftie
He's fab.

Saturday, 8 March 2014

Can he fix it?

 Great! He's building. Bound to need this piece!
 Better take it too him fast!
 Hmmmm. Some minor adjustments needed.
You can have it when I've finished!
