Like my dog

We met this lovely girl today while we were out. I think this photo gives her a slightly cheeky look :-)

She reminded us of our oldie, who we adopted from rescue when she was in her teens and who we very sadly lost a few years ago.

If anyone is looking to adopt a dog from rescue in the UK, please take a look at Oldies Club, which features lots of older dogs (aged seven plus) who are looking for a new forever home

Bad Hair Day

I took this photo last year and decided it would make a cute greetings card - and it seems I was right as others seem to love the photo too :-) Not hard to see why, I did have a most beautiful subject.

We have walked along this part of the river many times. It's a beautiful place

Today, walking along a canal, we came across a duck and her babies. Very sweet sight. I stopped to take a few photographs.

Here is mum:
One of the beautiful little ones ...

and one of mum and babies :-)

First Walk

We met this little lovely on our walk this morning. It was his first walk in the big wide world. Very sweet.

For an idea of just how little he is ...

In the field

I took this photo today - and love it, dogs having a run through the long grass and a couple of butterflies caught in the shot :)

And more from the walk ...

Sunny fields

After all the rain yesterday, the sun came back today.

Cranford - BBC drama, filming Christmas special

Yesterday a friend of mine, a blacksmith, was being filmed for the BBC's Christmas production of Cranford, a period drama. We went to visit the set and I was able to take some photos, so thought I would share some here ...

Here he is, all dressed/made up:

My birthday!

Today was my birthday - we went for a walk, a rather wet walk as it turned out, so not too many photos, but I did manage to take this photo of this lovely young bird, while they kindly sat and posed for me for a short while :-)

Earlier I received an email advising that my photo greetings cards had been blogged about on Folksy Finds. Very exciting :-)

This card of mine was chosen for the feature:

When all around you are losing theirs ...

We seemed to lose a head on the morning walk today ...

and also gained a slightly crazy looking one :-)

Fortunately the head re-appeared after a good roll in the grass. Unfortunately the head was covered in the delights of fox pooh.

Time to head for home ... and a shower ;-)

Summertime ...

Our morning walk started off with meeting this little one who was enjoying the shade until we stumbled along.

The dogs enjoyed a little run around while it was still cool enough to do so:

Mr Collie caught the scent of something ...

and did some posing in the long grass :-)

On the way back, we met a sheep and her little ones, who seemed to have broken free of their field and were out for a wander. We gently guided them, from a distance, back towards their rightful place and away from the road. Very sweet sight, mum followed by her three babies.

After all the excitement, it was time to head for home and a cup of tea :-)

Cool Jack

We met this lovely young man on our walk this morning. Gorgeous boy, very sweet and with his dad's permission he sat and posed for a few photos for me :-)
