Welcome to the page of photos taken in 2011.
We have now built up a bit of a back catalogue so, if you would like to see some photos of our travels, exploits and thoughts in years gone by please click on the link below for the appropriate year. While you're here, don't forget to visit our individual pages where we tell you a bit more about ourselves. Hope you enjoy them all !
Hello there and we hope you have a Happy and Prosperous New Year !
It's the last day of Dad's holiday and he's brought us for a run on Freshwater West beach. This is great, just the thing to blow those New Year cobwebs away !
Widget is playing with her stick (nothing new there then) in that pool. She must be mad, it's chuffing freezing ! Still there aren't many people around so we're having a really good run. Shame Dad has to go back to work tomorrow !
I'm getting all excited as our holiday in the Lakes is nearly here.
But Mum and Dad have told us that we're going away again in May ! This time we're going to Scotland which is somewhere I've never been. Widget says she went there a couple of times some years ago and has been telling me all about it. She says that people up there all throw sticks but that they're called cabers. It seems a funny name to me but they are obviously very welcoming. Also she tells me about some 3 legged animal called a haggis. She says the Scots all eat them so that sounds pretty good to me as well. I'm really looking forward to going to Scotland.
We've had a nice walk around Elterwater but now we've stopped off on the way back to the cottage in the Duddon Valley.
We've had a good play in the river and now we're wondering if there is any food going as Mum and Dad are sat down stuffing their faces...............
I found this great stick while we were on Freshwater West beach today and I got Dad to throw it for me so I could play Fetch. Being mean Dad threw it in this rock pool but I still went and got it. There's really nothing to this stick lark, I don't know why Widget keeps banging on about it so much. Still we had a great time !
Yipes, this gets better by the minute ! Apparently someone is getting married the week after and with the May Day Bank Holiday Dad will get another four day weekend. This is wonderful news as it means we should be up to full fitness ready for our trip to Scotland. All we need to do now is get Mum and Dad fit - but that might be a bit more difficult.
The first day of Dad's long weekend and we've come out for this lovely walk along the Milford Haven waterway near St Ishmaels. Here we are shortly after we started out with Mum. If the rest of the weekend is as good as this we'll have no complaints.
Today Mum and Dad have brought us up to Llawhaden in mid Pembrokeshire to do this great walk along the banks of the Eastern Cleddau.
Here I am having a cool off in the river as it is really quite warm today.
Dad's second long weekend and it's off to a promising start as he's brought us out to Marloes while the wedding is going on. It's a beautiful day and there aren't many people about so we're having a great run. Come on Dad, hurry up !
Life doesn't get much better than this !
It's a lovely day and I've got this lovely Parma Ham bone to have a good chew. All this and the thought of our holiday next week too. What's wrong with a dog's life ?
Here we are playing "stick" with Mum on the Silver Sands of Morar (I gave Widget a head start to make the chase more fun !).
We like beaches because we can have a good run on them and we have some good ones in Pembrokeshire but this one is amazing. Not only is it big enough to have a good run but there's virtually no one on it even on a beautiful day like today. Can we come here again ?
Here we are having a swim in Bruntis Loch which is part of the Kirroughtree Forest in southern Galloway.
Mum and Dad have brought us down here for a walk in the forest. It has been a nice walk and we haven't seen many people but it has been a bit warm and steamy so it was really good to get into the loch for a swim. Dad threw a stick in the loch but Widget got it and wouldn't share it as usual. She can be a right spoilsport.
What exactly is a curate's egg Widge ? Can you eat them ?
And Widge, I haven't seen any of those haggis thingies yet...........
Here I am with a stick that I've found.
Widgie and I are out with Mum and Dad for a walk in Stackpole Woods. It is the holiday season and we can't go on the beach any more. Still this is good and I am quite enjoying this stick..........
Here I am with Mum outside Chapel Cottage in Helton during our holiday.
Mum is knitting a small shawl and I'm giving her the benefit of my extensive knowledge and expertise with a few tips and suggestions.
Here I am at Baxter's Retreat checking my e-mails.
Although it is our holiday I have to keep on top of all my e-mails or they would soon mount up and become unmanageable.
Now where was I ?
Yes Widge, it turned out to be a great weekend. We barely heard any fireworks and the weather was very good. On Saturday Dad took us for a walk on Rhinog Fawr (Of course I can pronounce it, remember I'm a Carmarthenshire dog and I can bark fluent Welsh !).
