Oby

It’s no secret that I  love my dogs. Jazz and Oby are my constant companions when writing. Vince and I both love the countryside  and walking,so it makes perfect sense to take the dogs on holiday with us. Oby has been part of the family for just over ten months and  this is his first holiday with us.

 Yesterday it was raining in the morning so we all chilled. I secretly think Jazz and Oby were glad of the extra rest since they have been having lots of exercise. The sun made a dazzling appearance in the late afternoon so we took the dogs, now bouncy and raring to go to Beadnell beach. We passed Bamburgh castle on the way and I couldn’t resist taking a few more photographs from  the roadside.

Beadnell has a lovely beach  surrounding Beadnell bay which is very popular with surfers. Notably it has the only west facing harbour on the east coast of England.

 It is bordered with sand dunes where lots of pretty flowers manage to grow despite the harsh conditions.

I like this beach because at this time of the year it isn’t overcrowded and there is plenty of space for the dogs to run and play.

As you can see from the pictures Jazz and Oby seem to be having a great time. 🙂

Jazz is 10 Today

 Jazz is ten years old and to celebrate I thought I would share his day so far with you.

 The day started early… A 7am walk in the sunshine.

DSCN0483No time to pose for photos there’s too much exploring to do.

DSCN0495 Oby says he doesn’t mind posing for the camera 🙂

I saw lots of lovely wild flowers.

Some new foals too.

 

DSCN0526Oby needed a sleep when we got home.

 

DSCN0527Jazz was too excited to sleep.

When is it present time?

After a typical UK Bank Holiday weekend – wet. Today dawned dry and sunny so we decided to take the dogs Jazz and Oby on an early morning walk. They had such fun I thought I would share a few photos with you. 🙂

DSCN0213 They are impatient to start their walk…

There were lots of pretty wildflowers to see on the walk but Jazz and Oby didn’t want to hang around.

 

Come on Jane stop taking photos and less run :-)
