It is a hard life being a Bedlington lying about in the sun all day!
Thanks Mark for the photo

This is Dessi a puppy from Dougal & Annie's litter two years ago. She enjoys a spot of sunbathing outside our caravan in Rochefort en Terre France. All three dogs have their passports and travel to France at least twice a year. They are a great hit with the French people. Last year a French lady almost ran across a hugh square in Reddon where we were sitting at a pavement cafe and when she came up to us the only English words that she knew were "Bedlington Terrier"! How about that.
Many thanks to Bob Dunch for the photo, they are certainly well travelled Bedlies!

Who Can Guess?
Mark and Jan's D is due to have pups in just over a weeks time. Can you guess how many, what sex, the day and date of the puppies arrival?
This Is Just Equine Magic
If you like horses, you will love this clip. Even if you don't, this is amazing stuff. This video is of Andreas Helgstrand and his 9 year-old mare, Matinee, at the World Equestrian Games. It is the Musical Freestyle Dressage competition, and they pretty much wiped the floor with everyone. Turn up the sound and watch this mare dance...she knows where the beat is.

Jake gets the better of all the Bedlingtons!

Mathew said "we went to the Cleveland Hunt Terrier and Lurcher Show yesterday. Unfortunately there wasn't a Bedlington class so they all had to go in the pet dog class out of 10, 7 beds, a lab, and 2 crosses. Look who won! Our cross beat them all and took a trophy, a rosette and a sack of food home. not bad as he only came along for the ride".
Cleveland Working Terrier Show better known as the Bunnyland show!

After Bunnyland

Well, Billy had a good day at the Cleveland Working Show better known as the Bunnyland show! Wow the dogs certainly looked like they had a great time! Unfortunately no Bedlington classes at this event.
