Puppy Mew at sixteen weeks

Four months old and full of life, Mew's a real character

Close up of Kelpie Molly, facing the camera, with border collie puppies Maddie and Mew close behind her
Young Kelpie Molly's another of our favourites. Here she has a very serious-looking young Maddie, and her friend Mew in close attendance, with Isla in the background.

Some very welcome sunshine this morning prompted me to take the camera out with me when I took the dogs for their twice-daily run. I noticed that Mew's still eager to get into whatever picture I'm taking, while her close friend Maddie (from Kay and Oliver) is more camera-shy.

Mew and Maddie's characters are very different. Maddie's very serious and already taking an interest in sheep, while Mew seems to think that life's just a huge game! That doesn't stop them being great friends though, especially when there's a ball nearby!

Young Victor on a frosty morning

Even though it's cold, the weather's glorious!

There's nothing quite like a bit of sunlight to brighten up a frosty morning and Victor's morning was certainly made brighter by the prospect of some training with these sheep. He's a lovely young dog, with a natural instinct for going round the sheep rather than charging at them. Dogs with this instinct are usually far easier to train than their wilder counterparts.

A favourite with visitors to this website, Mew must be one of the fluffiest dogs we've owned

Mew continues to impress us, both with her amazingly fluffy coat, and her personality. How she'll turn out as a herding dog we've yet to see, but she certainly has plenty of self confidence. That's a very good start.
