Well done Enid and Chris!
This is Chester who has just been to see Eileen for a haircut. He lives in Chester-Le-Street hence the name Chester. Eileen first met him at the Holiday Inn where Eileen works. Chester's house had been flooded out in the June storms so his family were moved into the hotel while their house was repaired. While staying at the hotel he learnt a few bad habits such as jumping up on the bed and probably getting quite a few titbits from the girls in the restaurant.
Enjoyed a run round the garden with some of The Makems clans toys. Perhaps Chester will turn up for the Bedlington Walk at Seaton Carew on the 14th October. The Makems

Thank you to Tricia for the photos, I just love the photo of Jacob on the grooming table! The hum of the clippers must have sent him to sleep!. Tricia drove a round trip of 22 hours to collect Jacob whose breeder had been taken ill and could no longer care for him.
Lovely clips on the the life of the African wild dog.
Hi Everyone ,
Well what a couple of weeks we have had, Since our last report we have been to the Ellesmere Boat Festival. The boats were beautifully decorated and there were lots of canal stalls to mooch around, and even the boat yard was open to the public with a free boat ride which Sapphire and Jazz enjoyed. They even wanted to get their fishing rods out and do a spot of fishing. We spent most of the day milling around looking at all the decorated boats then we had fish and chips for our teas with an extra nice big sausage for Sapphire and Jazz to share. After tea we went back down the Wharf to see all the boats light up and that was something else!! Jazz and Sapphire had a lots of pats and hugs and by the time we got home it was 10:30pm (way passed their bed time ).
On Monday when Mum and Brian got home and I finished work we went agility training the crew ran themselves ragged! Last Sunday afternoon and just 2 miles up the road was the second banger race meeting. Sapphire and Jazz with the aid of their Uncle Ian helped start and finish the races. A the end of the day the track was cleared for the destruction derby where the last car running wins!!! It lasted 3/4 of an hour by which time all the cars were well and truly wrecked. This weekend we went off and stormed the Castle at Whittington, there was a wedding on so the Bedies had to behave themselves. After the wedding they captured prisoners who they licked and cuddled to an inch of their lives. We had time to do a spot of fishing with our friend Biggles and the Marshal Crew caught 29 fish to Biggle’s 17 fish. Today we got up early and went for a walk around Colemere before we settled down for the afternoon to watch The British Touring Cars on ITV 4. Sapphire and Jazz have been so good they had a shoe chew treat with a cup of Tea. Bless them, so for now we will say bye bye as we have to make egg and chips for the old age travellers as they are on their way home from a fortnight’s working at the latest shows.
Thank you the K9 crew certainly get about and have loads of fun. They must be the best socialised beddies on the blog. Don’t the dog get frightened of the noise at the banger racing? I would think all that crashing of vehicles would make a horrid loud crunching sound. We have a canal day coming up in Banbury in October and hope to go along to see all the decorated boats and join in the fun.
It was lovely to see Sue Jenkins and her puppy “Ted” yesterday. Ted is just 15 weeks and came along to watch us at agility. We were at Cheltenham race course for the weekend and Ted lives in Cheltenham. Ted is a very special puppy as he has only got a stump for a tail. Something happened at birth and he lost most of his tail, but Ted is not bothered, he looks so cute wagging his little stump.as he comes up to say hello. Sue said people do come up to her and asked if his tail has been docked. Tail or no tail Ted is a very handsome young man!

Hello Lesley and fellow bloggers.
After I came back from a wonderful week's holiday, walking & sightseeing in lovely warm sunny Croatia, I decided last Thursday it would be nice to celebrate my reunion with Boy (who had had quite a fun week himself at my sisters with her whippets!) with another challenging walk, this time up Penyfan. It was a beautiful day, sunny and warm in Neath. Not quite so lovely and warm at Storey Arms where I parked the car! And as we climbed to Corn Du it got colder and windier! Boy had to stay on the lead as those Welsh mountain sheep were giving him "come hither" glances! At the very top,on Penyfan itself (886m) we were buffeted by icy gusts, and I really wished I'd taken gloves hat and a warmer coat! And as I was admiring the views north/northwest, heavy cloud sneaked in behind me, obscuring Corn Du and the way down! Luckily, the path down is very very obvious and safe, but it was quite alarming how quickly it changed.Talk about extremes!
I had had a scare with Boy before I went away . Almost didn't go! Lunch time on the Tuesday (the day I was due to go up to Heathrow ready to fly early on the Wednesday), we suddenly noticed his urine was red! Took him to the vets, with a urine sample. Vet said there were various things that could cause this, but gave him antibiotics and anti lungworm treatments in case. I was quite sick with worry, but my sister insisted I go as planned. She texted me Thursday to say the urine tests had shown no abnormalities, and the vet could only suggest an old muscle injury as the cause but that his urine was back to normal and he was perfectly fine, eating well etc. Has anyone else experience this? It was very alarming! Regards Andrea and Boy
Thank you Andrea, souds like you really enjoyed your break away. it is quite alarming to find a sudden change in weather in the middle of a walk. I think the weather can change from warm and dry to cold and wet very quickly on the Welsh Mountains. I am sure Boy did not feel the cold and enjoyed the walk even though he could not go and check out the sheep. I wonder if Boy had been eating beetroot that would certainly turn his urine red!
I can’t believe that Ed and Ossie had their 7th Birthday on Tuesday, and are now veterans. The time has flown by since we collected them from their breeder. Here are the boys on their first Christmas, aged 3 months. Ossie will always be young at heart, he still behaves like a puppy most days.
I was too late home from work on Tuesday, so we delayed acknowledging their special birthday until today. Unfortunately it’s been drizzly so they have lazed around, although it’s brighter now for their afternoon walk. I’ve baked a batch of their favourite peanut butter biscuits, and the boys were very pleased when they were cool enough to try one. Sorry they ate it so fast, I couldn’t capture it with the camera.
Best wishes Sarah
Thank you Sarah and a very happy birthday to the boys. They may be termed veterans, but 7 is still young for most bedlingtons. We hear of many bedlingtons living on to their mid teens where other breeds are lucky to make ten. Those biscuits look lovely and so many of them, but I don’t suppose they will last long!
Hello everyone, I have had internet connection problems for 3 weeks, so have missed the blog’s goings on for a while, so now I'm back online thought I would send a couple of photos of Bramble.I bought this fox for him, but it lasted less that 2 minutes before he ripped his front leg off. I think i might have to try Ikea's rat and rabbit and hope they last a bit longer! I thought I would learn bramble a new trick (he fetches the post, rings a bell for his dinner, finds my slippers and fetches them to me) Iv'e taught him to put rubbish in the bin. As you can see he's pretty good at learning new things, especially when there's a gravy bone in it for him. Karen and Bramble.
Thank you Karen, try an Ikea rat ours have been going for years, they get a bit dirty but still in on piece. Bedlingtons are quick to learn and a very special bond builds between handler and trainer.
Just A Little Different To Today’s Bedlington Terrier
This is a colour plate from the book published in 1890. There is a complete chapter on the bedlington which I hope to publish to the blog in instalments, Below is a picture of Geordie, very interesting as he was seen as an excellent example of the breed. As the writer gives the dogs measurements we get a really good picture of what Geordie was like
Quote From The book!
This is Dr. Lamond Hemming’s Geordie a dog of excellent appearance, his head especially being first-rate, though his experience of dog shows is limited to Bristol of 1879, where he succeeded in obtaining a second prize. His measurements are:
Nose to stop 3¼,stop to occiput 5 inches, length of back 17 inches, girth of skull 14 inches, girth of neck 12 inches, girth round chest 20 inches, girth of loins 17½, girth of thigh 9 inches, girth of forearm 5½ girth of pastern 3½ inches, height at shoulders15 inches, height at elbows 8 inches, height at loins 16 inches, height at hock 5 inches, length of tail 12 inches, weight 24lbs, age,18 months.
I would like to thank Michael Newns for photo copying the extracts for the blog!
A faithful dog has refused to leave the side of his dead master's grave for six years, it was reported today.Read more: Click HERE
My old girl Chelsea who is 16 was spayed a long time ago probably when she was about two. Although no physical signs she is behaving like a bitch on heat, giving off pheromones and making up to Parker my dog. It is really funny to watch this very old girl behaving like an adolescent. I am not sure how long to let this go on for? At the moment I am having to keep Parker in a separate room, being rather frail an accident with Parker may cause her some injury. Ever since she as spayed at two she has never shown any signs of being in season.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day out. Asha won Best Bedlington but was not placed in the championship and only managed second place in her heat in the terrier racing.
Diesel easily won her heat in the racing but did not finish in the first three in the final. Fudge at 14 won best veteran terrier and came home with a huge rosette and trophy, unfortunately Jon did not take a photo. Yuva (Nicky and Andy Kinns, one of Diesel’s pups pictured below) ran a fast heat gaining a second place and was the only terrier to return to the start, unaided or enticed, having completed the run.
The youngest member of the team was Nikki Kinns’s Chino at eleven weeks who was definitely a star attraction with everyone wanting a cuddle
