The Faces of Bea

It has been a while since I put a Bea update up on here. She seems to have become a mainstay on my photos out and about via my Twitter etc. In the first post you may remember that I explained what kind of dog she was and how she was progressing through her first year. Well as you can see she has reached past one and is happy to pose whenever… she loves being out and about! Being all sighthound you can imagine the hours and hours of keeping of trying to keep her focussed and attentive to...

Low and High Force Walk – Durham Dales

The Durham Dales, a wonderful area to visit for walking…. even better when it is truly so dog friendly. So, it was time for Bea and I to head up there and get a couple of days of great fresh air and scenery. What better place to start, than in Teesdale, a beautiful walk taking in Low Force and High Force. Whatever season you walk the area, it is remarkable. The falls look spectacular whether after lots of rain or after a dry spell. The rover and dale surrounding is a joy to wander. Bea loved every minute of...

GoPro Animals on My Travels and Wanders

The Gopro is one piece of kit I carry with me most of the time. Local walks or high climbs sometimes prohibit the want to carry a proper camera around or carry a backpack.

Thanks so much for joining in her smiles around social media, she really is a sweet dog and companion for the whole household. A joy to have around.

Very different characters indeed. Bea the bouncing, galloping, in your face, 10 month old (as I write) sighthound cross. Rusty the...

Pets Make the House a Home

Owning pets can be a real pleasure and ultimately transform your house into a home, but if you’re already a pet owner I hardly need to mention it. I’ve grown up with pets around me all my life and can’t remember a time when we didn’t own at least a few pets at a time. Keeping animals is tied into my genes. My Grandad, Henry and grandma Alice, although I never met them, lived on a Hampshire farm with my mother and her 7 siblings. As soon as my mum was old enough she too began her own small...
