Welcome to the page of photos taken in 2012.
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 !
Firstly we would like to wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year !
The weather hasn't been too good recently and we haven't been able to get out for a good run but today is nice and clear and Mum and Dad have brought us out to Penally. As we've said before we love Penally beach as it is so big and there isn't normally many people there in winter. Great, this is blowing the cobwebs away !
Come on Widge, last one to reach Dad is a poodle !
This just gets better, this morning we're down on Amroth beach. Once again it is blowing a really cold wind but Jack Russells are tough and we're keeping nice and warm running around here.
Any chance of another walk tomorrow Dad ?
Usain Bolt ? I bet he can't run half as fast as me !
Here I am on the beach at Wiseman's Bridge. It's a lovely day and I just fancied having a run.
Yeah, it's great news Widge, but exactly who is Angus ? I didn't know Mum or Dad had Scottish relatives or is he a Scottie or a Westie or something like that ?
Maybe we'll see a haggis this year............
Well after a quiet February we had a really good weekend. They got up as normal on Saturday but, instead of faffing about for half the morning, we got away fairly early and went over to Solva. Dad took us for a nice walk up along the Gribin and down to the bay on the other side and then up onto the headland. We had a nice run on the headland while Dad took some photos before we went back down to the bay. Widgie went and had a paddle, not me though it was freezing !
On Sunday we got out fairly early and went over to Dale. It was low tide so Dad took us for a walk all the way round the bay towards St Ishmaels. Once again Widgie spent half the time in the water but it was a bit warmer today so I had a bit of a paddle as well. We were just settling down in our crates for the journey home when they decided to stop at St Brides Bay so we got a second run. This just doesn't normally happen so we made the most of it and had a nice run down on the beach there.
A wonderful weekend, can we do it again soon ? Please !
Here is a photo of our walk at Solva. From the car park we walked up onto the Gribin, down onto the bay behind us in the photo and round the headland on the other side. We had a nice play on the beach and, you won't be surprised to hear, Widget went for a swim. She must be barking because it was freezing.
But it was a nice walk so no complaints !
Oh wow ! Mum has given me this lovely Parma Ham bone to have a chew on. I love bones and this one is really tasty. I have to be really careful though as Widget will nick it if I let my guard up.
Right then, where was I ?
Here I am on the breakwater at Porthclais near St David's. We had just been caught out in the most torrential downpour and we all got soaking wet except for Widget who was already wet as she had been for a swim - no surprise there !
After we left Porthclais they took us down to Caerfai Bay and we got another walk there. This is great.
Oh no ! Tragedy !
Shortly after taking the photo above of Widgie and me in the rock pool Dad slipped on some seaweed and dropped the camera into another rockpool. Dad says the camera is now ka-put. Apparently that means there won't be many photos of us until he gets a new one, but it was a bit funny seeing Dad virtually on his hands and knees in a rockpool, we did snigger ! What a plonker !
What does ka-put mean Widge ?
Tonight we got "Frontlined". It's not a wonderful lot of fun having it done and the stuff stinks but we do know that it means that holiday time is getting near so that's good news. I do notice though that Mum and Dad never put any Frontline on themselves. If it's that good then why not ?
Looks like fun, can I have a game as well ?
Woofs and licks Mum !
Here we are at Flimston which is close to Stack Rocks near Castlemartin. (I gave Widget a head start of course......)
Woof ! As Mum is feeling a little bit better now we're going to go away on holiday for a couple of weeks on Saturday. We're having a week at Elterwater in the Langdale valley in the Lake District and then we're going to have a week just outside Llanberis in Snowdonia. We've been to the Lakes and Elterwater many times before and we love it there. Lots of wonderful walks just right for Jack Russells. Neither of us has ever been to Snowdonia before, apart from the weekend last November, but if Llanberis is anything like that then we'll enjoy that as well.
Well, it has been a fairly wet start to our holiday in the Lakes. Today didn't look any more promising but Mum and Dad decided to head down to Coniston and it is a lot brighter here.
We've come up onto the Walna Scar road and here we're sat with Mum and the bridge over the outfall stream from Goats Water. It's been a great walk.
Right, now you've taken the photo can we get going again ?
It was my seventh birthday yesterday but they didn't even seem to realise. I was a little bit down as I thought they had all forgotten but this morning that have given me this lovely Parma Ham bone. I'm really enjoying this.
At last we are going on holiday today, it felt like it was never going to arrive ! Once again we're going up to the Lake District and back to Baxter's Retreat in Keswick. We've been there five times before and we love it there. Lots of wonderful walks just right for Jack Russells.
Today is the first day of our holiday in the Lakes. As you can see it has been a lovely day and Dad has brought us out to climb Causey Pike.
Here we're on the summit with the rest of the summit ridge and Skiddaw and Blencathra behind us.
Cracking first day, if the rest of the holiday is half as good as this it's going to be a good one !
Yeah, it was disgraceful. I was wasting away by the time I got back to Baxter's !
This weekend our Uncle Steve has come to visit us and he's come out for a walk with us. Today we've come to Back O' Skidda and we're doing a nice walk there.
Here we're on the summit of High Pike with Steve.
Hurry up Dad, it must be lunchtime !
Good news ! Mum and Dad have told us that Dad still has another week's holiday to take and that we are going away next Friday. Apparently we're going to Somerset which will be new for us. I'm really looking forward to it.
Here we are with Dad after the journey from Pembroke to South Cadbury at the start of what turned out to be a very good week.
This time we're with Mum above Durdle Door. Another good walk, this is great !
