Happy New Year
These are lovely big Mo I think they would be fantastic as decoration for a special cake or for the Christmas tree next year, or maybe as a door plaque for a child's bedroom. I don't think you will have time for the telly anymore!

With love and best wishes to all, Jane xxx
It has been a very long year in Bedlingtonland but it has always been fun, from sunny Windsor to muddy Richmond. We have been awarded our Bronze Good Citizen Award and have started agility. We have qualified for Crufts and got reserve BOB in Worthing and District Canine Society Open Show. I am very proud of Jack who is so much better behaved than he was one year ago.
Santa has decided that Jack was a good boy and he got a pack of balloons (Jack loves popping them!)a squeaky pig (thank you Ralphie!) and a tug toy from Father Christmas.(which now has the stuffing ripped out of it!)
Sonny is now old enough to Junior Handle. He says that he wants to so i will give him a go the next time we go to ringcraft. I would like to thank everyone for their advice, help and comments on the blog, especially Lesley who introduced us to showing and for teaching my Dad to groom and clip Jack Jon for the photography at dog shows, Billy, who handled Jack in crufts and his qualifying champ show (BTA champ show), Norman and Sandra who let me handle Megan at the BTA open show in April and Naomi and Sarah for their help with junior handling. Also i would like to thank my mum for her support, dog show lunches and flasks of coffee AND I would like to thank my Dad for grooming and clipping Jack.
Happy New Year to everyone lots of love Victoria and Jack Bojangles xx
Thank you Victoria, it has been quite a year for your family, not only with the dogs but also Mum running and completing the half marathon for charity! I wander what 2oo9 will bring maybe another Junior Handler in Sonny, how exciting! We will look forward to seeing you and all the young handlers at next seasons shows. Let us try and encourage more young people into the breed, and maybe the breed clubs will put on Junior handling classes at all their shows. We must say well done to Dad as he now trims Jack to a fantastic show standard. You, Dad, Sonny ( the next Junior Handler) and Mum with the sandwiches will make a great show team in 09!

Millie was not at all impressed by the new addition to the family for the first couple of days, and took to her bed in a massive sulk. Thankfully, by the third day, she decided to investigate the little one, and soon realised that she could play with her so all was not lost after all! The two of them play together really well, although Millie still isn’t too impressed when Mabel hangs off her ears, bites her legs or steals her “big girl’s” toys!
Love Sue, Liza, Millie & Mabel x
This is Mabel, who's 7.5 months old. We've been regular readers of the blog ever since we knew for sure we were getting a Bedlie, but not managed to send a photo yet... She came from Doncaster, apparently pedigree parents though she's not registered- she's actually pretty big for a Bedlington as well, though we think she's finished growing now (10.7 kg!). She's very well known around our village, very friendly but quite mad as well! She's enjoyed the festivities so far, here she is waiting for Christmas to come (and like many others we've seen on the blog, enjoying the sofa!)

Hello Mabel welcome to bedlingtonpictures. What a pretty girl she is with her lovely dark coat. We do have a few blog Bedlingtons in your part of the country. You will have to meet up with Ben and Lucy as they live in Cambridge

08 has been quite a year for the bedlingtonpictures, Jon has been able to take photographs at championship shows of all the exhibitors and we congratulate all those Bedlingtons who were made up into champions this year. Information on the blog has helped to see several bedlingtons rescued and re-homed and we regularly receive progress reports and photos of these special dogs. We ran a photographic competition for the Bedlington Terrier Association Calendars this summer, we had 230 photos entered and a blog vote found the winning photos. All the calendars have been sold and over £1000 (final total to be announced) has been raised for rescue and re-homing. We have encouraged owners to take part in agility and training and we now have 15 Bedingtons that have gained a Kennel Club Good Citizen award and several attending agility classes up and down the country. I must just give a special thank you to the reporters and especially big Mo who proof reads all my posts, I receive at least 6 emails everyday from Mo pulling me up on my typing and spelling errors. Big Mo is my hidden strength running the blog. I would like to say thank you to everyone who send in news, photos and contributes by adding comments. Also a special mention to our Junior Handlers, well done to all of you. The future of our breed lies in your commitment and enthusiasm. Puppies have been foremost on the blog and we have seen photos of several litters born and watched them grow and they are now a part of the bedlingtonpictures family. It is fantastic that Bedlington pictures now has a regular following world wide and the highest number of hits in one day this year was an amazing 960.
- My high light of the year has to be Parker gaining his KC Good Citizen Gold award, Fudge now competing in the Senior level at UK Agility and Millie winning BOB at LKA. On behalf of Jon and I we wish you a wonderful day today, a peaceful New Year and successful 09. Have a wondeful Christmas and New Year from Jon, Lesley, Parker, Diesel Chelsea and Fudge! Click here
PLEASE BE SURE TO SCROLL DOWN TO READ ALL THE CHRISTMAS MESSAGES!
Keep the competition photos coming!
Love from Thandi Tombi and Madeline
