Malcolm The Mallard

Well the girls got a new toy this week.  A Mallard.  We decided he looked like a Malcolm.  He didn't have a squeaker, but had stuffing that made a crinkling sound.  Honey took to him immediately and was quite disgusted when Polly started to play with him as well.


Here's Honey with Malcolm.  I did not stage these two photos, she really was cuddling him.




Sadly when I got back yesterday morning from a catch up with my friend Hilary, I found a scene that wouldn't have looked amiss on one of the CSI programmes.

Alas poor Malcolm he lives no more, as I found his guts all over the floor (should have taken a photo).  I questioned the girls asking 'Who did this?'  They were both quick to insist that they were not to blame.  Then they tried to explain.

Apparently, Malcolm had said he wasn't feeling well, so Honey had given him a good maul cuddle.  He then burped and exploded.  Well I doubted this explanation but their faces were blank,  I think they could have got an Oscar for their performance.

A needle and thread will put Malcolm right, although I think he may suffer the same fate several more times before he will end up being gutless.

Fun At The Field 22nd Sept, 2016

Last Thursday was our day at the field with the dogs.

Here are two videos.  I really must concentrate when I am filming, as they are rather jumpy.  Also I thought I had a great video of Milo rolling around on the damp grass, but I either hadn't pressed record, or I had it on pause, as it wasn't on the camcorder.

Polly's 4th Gotcha Day & My Heart Scan

Just a quick post to let you know I had my heart scan yesterday (Wednesday 14th September) and my heart is completely fine.

Not sure how the condition got onto my notes, but I do not have it.  Consultant said he will do a report that will go in my notes to confirm it was a mis-diagnosis and that my heart is completely fine.

Thanks for all your well wishes.




It's Polly's 4th Gotcha Day.  Love the old girl (she'll be 10 on 1st March, 2017) more each day.

Happy Dogs

Yesterday we went to the field at the farm.  Hilary picked me up, as Kermit (my car) was in the garage.

Polly stayed home as it was hot, better she stayed here and enjoyed some snoozing time.
Hilary's two Greyhounds and Pointer and my Honey all had a fab time.



Here are three short videos.


All the dogs enjoying a good sniff round.


Milo having a roll in the damp grass, with Flora looking on.


Milo, Sofia (Pointer) and Honey.
