I just thought i would bring you up to speed with Issacc seeing as i do not show him anymore.
Well it’s work work work with him, out lamping with the lurchers and digging with his pals on permission land. Plenty of ferreting and ratting at the local allotments. Yesterday morning it was off to the North Yorkshire Moors for a spot of ferreting in the snow.i must admit it beats the hell out of standing on a table and walking in a triangle. Billy
Thank you Billy I know Issacc would much prefer to get dirty out in the countryside to being bathed, groomed and spending a lot of the day in a cage.

The run up to Christmas has been busy, but now it’s all a bit quieter. We always like to have some good walks over Christmas and new year, this year mainly on the disused railways, which are cleaner than the paths across the fields. Christmas Day was so wet and dreary that it was too gloomy to take photos on the path from Leadgate to Stanley. Boxing Day was better and we had a nice walk near to Consett. Every so often there is something to remind us of the industrial heritage. When we got home, we were all nice and relaxed and Ossie was so tired that he fell asleep sitting up. Happy new year to all our blog friends. Sarah, Tony with Ed, Ossie, Rosie and Jasper
Thank you Sarah, the disused railway paths make ideal walking this weather especially when you have 16 paws to exercise and wash the mud from.
Does anyone know what the orange monster was used for? It looks looks like some sort of hopper.
China went back to visit Stuart and Angela today, and had a great time playing with her brother. He is a gorgeous boy, and has gone home with his new mum and dad this evening. Louise
Thank you Louise I bet the pups had a great time together. I know the house will feel strange for Angela and Stuart without their little ball of fun. It is always sad to say goodbye to the last pup in the litter.

Thank you Cerys, Millie is just gorgeous do send us lots of updates, puppies grow and change daily over their first six months. Millie has the cutest innocent face but I bet she is very naughty and playful like all bedlington babies, enjoy her while she is tiny.

Sapphire and Jazz here, well we hope all of our friends on the Blog are having a great time over Christmas and have got what they wanted., Jazz and I think Uncle Ian is getting better from his bout of chicken pox he has started to tell jokes which are worse than Xmas Cracker jokes! He took us for a special on Xmas day which Jazz and myself enjoyed. We met up with some of our doggy friends and ran about like mad pups. but Jazz and I could not wait to get back home to see if Doggie Paws had been to drop us off some presents off. We know Uncle Ian had written to him to say what good little Bedies we had been. When we got home we saw some presents for us, Jazz and I were really excited to see what we had got.
We even helped Granny, Granddad and Uncle Ian to open their presents. Jazz and I played with our toys till we collapsed on the window sill on the settee worn out from all the excitement.
We had a Xmas dinner to which was very nice and we had some of Uncle Ian's trifle for pudding. After all the excitement and full tummies Jazz and myself had big cuddles from Granny and Uncle Ian and we all fell asleep in front of the telly dreaming of all the fun we had during our Xmas day.
We hope that all our Blog friends had as much fun as we have so for now seasonal Greetings to you all From Jazz and Sapphire pups (AKA The K9 Marshal Crew) xxxxx
Thank you Jazz and Sapphire, I see Santa Paws made a visit to Ikea for some toy rats, I think these rats must have been the number one must have on the bedlingtons wish list this Christmas. Please to read uncle Ian is back to his normal self and able to take you out to meet your doggies friends. Have a lovely boxing day and best wishes to Ian Carmel and and Brian

Thought you might like to see how Maya’s youngsters are progressing. They were introduced to the garden this week. After initial cautiousness they soon began to explore and even did a little gardening, (as only a bedlington can lol). They love to play with big sister Erin, who adores them. We are hoping to introduce them to the clippers this week, not a job Trevor enjoys but has to be done. I’m sure they will enjoy their Christmas presents, though probably not half as much as the unwrapping of them. Happy Christmas to all at Bedlington Pictures, hoping 2013 is wonderful year for you all. Trevor, Jane and the Ruffsfurzes, (little and large).
Thank you Jane this is just a lovely photo, how lucky you were to get them looking at the camera together! I love the one at the front with the white chest and little white paws. Enjoy tomorrow with lots of fun and chaos, Do send us a photo after their trim, a long job for Trevor with 5 wriggly babies to clip.

Hello Every One and to all our friends on the blog. Well uncle Ian has left Jazz and myself in charge of doing this report, he told us that we must not fall out with each other over trying to type in a word on the keyboard, if there is any spelling mistakes we apologies now! Well last weekend Uncle Ian was due to have it off. We had a very nice adventures on the Friday and he helped Jazz and Myself (Sapphire) to finish our Xmas shopping. When we got home we all had our teas, then we relaxed in front of the telly and later Jazz and myself started the play station up and we played a car racing game which was good fun.
The next morning when we awoke OMG it was like waking up to a horror film as poor Uncle Ian was just plain ugly as he had a rash all over him. When he woke up he took us for a quick walk and we all kept out of sight! For the rest of Saturday and Sunday Uncle Ian spent in bed not very well and when our Granny and Ganddad got back from the N.E.C and LKA our granny took Uncle Ian to the human vets where he was said to have the dreaded lurgy and was told by the vet man to stay away from work for at least 10 days and to rest as much as possible. We think our uncle Ian will be board out of his skull! While he was asleep last night Jazz and myself got a couple of black marker pens off of granny and this morning Uncle Ian's back looks like a giant dot-to-dot puzzle. Everybody in the house bar Uncle knows about this but we think Uncle Ian knows now as soon as he reads this. Jazz and myself better find some good hiding places to hide and sound proofed because of the amount of laughing we are doing. Run Jazz he is standing right behind us and I can feel him breathing on the back of my neck! Thank goodness he saw the funny side of it and he just fell about laughing and gave Jazz and myself a treat each and gave us a both a big cuddle. So for now bye bye From Jazz and Sapphire Bedlingtons
P S Get well soon Uncle Ian we miss you're terrible jokes and our adventures together!
Thank you Jazz and Sapphire do hope Uncle Ian is feeling better. He can’t be ill with Santa Paws arriving in a few days time. Do hope it won’t be long before Ian is well enough to take you both out walking. Get well Ian from everyone on the blog.
