Bizarre!

June 22, 2012
What is going on with the weather?? We at Happydoggydays have had a lovely day at Binning Wood. Basking & barking in the sunshine :-) Drop offs in North Berwick, Aberlady still in sunshine and then....on our way to Tranent, roads flooded, closed, blocked by stranded vehicles, A1 north bound down to 1 lane as the inside lane looked like a river. Hailstones in Musselburgh apparently.........very, very bizarre! Glad we went where we did and we're safely back home. Still basking in the sunshine!! No barking - we're all too tired!! x
 

Fun day for some!!

May 22, 2012
We've had a bit of a day today! All going lovely on our little collection tootle, when Mum noticed the van was making a rather growly noise.....not to worry, will check it out later. Got to Binning Wood, where we had a fabulatastic walk in the alternate sun and shade, splash in the pond and puddles to cool down. Everyone being very well behaved - although Hamish seemed to be a bit hyper after a very subdued walk yesterday - perhaps had re-channeled his energy! Back to the growling van and now...

What a day!!!

May 11, 2012
Phone 999 or call local station?? That was the question we faced this morning on our way to collect Hamish from Gifford!
Coming over the brow of a hill we were faced with a Bernese Mountain dog in the middle of the road! Thankfully, due to weather conditions we weren't travelling at speed and managed to stop and pull over.
Gathered up a lead and some treats, along with the trusty whistle and tried to approach the obviously nervous dog. He/she was having none of it and turned tail, cars...

Busy, Busy, Busy!!

May 11, 2012

Long weekend, meant web updating, online store tweaking, order processing,van cleaning, vetbed washing and generally getting things ship shape!! Also looking after the lovely Luka & Bramble (Choc & black lab respectively), when we had a gentle stroll through Butterdean, meeting a lovely Wire-Haired Pointer/Labrador!! Who's first birthday is this weekend and she was still very, very bouncy!! Happy Birthday Bella!
Back to the normal grind today and we've had a fabby woodland walk, where...

Miserable Monday!

April 30, 2012
Tired, contented Happydoggys tonight! Having suffered a miserable, wet, soggy, dismal, muddy, cold (running out of adjectives!) 2 and a half hour walk today. Oreo Boy & friends are all curled up, dry, fed and fast asleep.Think a little of the blame can be attributed to the heat emanating from the central heating, which is only on, to dry all the wet clothes, towels, van vetbed etc.!! Have had to open a window, just to keep me awake!!

Misty, Wet day @ Yellowcraigs

April 25, 2012
Dismal!! What a horrid start to the day! Wet, damp and miserable. Once we had evryone collected, question was where to go? I always like these days, cos the feeling is no-one else wil visit the coast, when the weather is like this.
Not quite true to form. Parked up at Yellowcraigs and first of all met Luka's neighbour, one of our local amenity wardens. Having gone through the sniffing crotch/bottom ritual we were on our way. Decided before the freedom of the beach, we would have a controlled w...

Apologies

April 22, 2012
Huge apologies folks! Realised we haven't posted anything for a while. It's not cos we haven't had any interesting walks, just cos Carole's been a bit poorly....feeling a wee bit better now :-)
Regardless of the horrid weather, we have to get up, get on and get out!!
Having said that, the very early morning yucky starts have given way to the sun breaking through and a much brighter day :-)
On that note..where did summertime March go? Not to worry....always a new, bright horizon for us.....inter...

Thrilling Tuesday

April 17, 2012
What a fantastic day!! Started off a little? drizzly, whilst taking Oreo out for his early morning walk at which he was joined by his little JRT puppy friend, Pippa. By the time we were off on our collection run, the sun was starting to peep through the clouds and by the time we reached North Berwick it was starting to feel a little warm.
Off to the woods today, but 1st an energetic run in the stubble, for those who had missed their friends over the holidays. Everyone seemed very pleased to se...

Pretty Little April Showers!!

April 12, 2012
What a horrible start to the week! Snowy, windy and very, wet ground. Wishful thinking on my part, has delayed the ordering of the new wellies...........so, very, wet feet as my waterproof walking boots are no longer waterproof!
Actually, I very much doubt if anything other than wellies could cope withwhat we've been through the past couple of days.
Thinking outside the box, thought we'd take a very level walk on Tuesday (1st day back and brain not quite in sync!) Level walk = many, many puddle...

Happy Easter Weekend

April 9, 2012
What a fabulous Easter weekend we have had!! Weather not been up to much, but we haven't had cause to complain! We have been closed Good Friday and Easter Monday, but that hasn't stopped us being out and about finding new walks for some new adventures. The very happy Bramble has been with us this weekend and has had a great time swimming in the Tyne at every opportunity!! We did feel we had to be careful over the early part of the weekend, due to the rain, the river was fast flowing with some...
