Home Awaits For Bedlington Any Colour, Sex Or Age


I'm looking to rehome a female beddy,age,colour not important, has to be ok with cats, I live in derbyshire, if anybody knows of a beddy in need please contact me on 07944950513, thank you. Heather Scott

Getting Ready


Sapphire and Jazz here, our Uncle Ian has let us lose to do our report again (ha ha ha )! He is looking over our shoulders to see if we need any help, we think he is a little worried what we might say about him behind his back like ugly and frumpy he he he!!  Well over the last fortnight we have been getting into learning the new routine for the new season of dog displays with Granny and Uncle Ian, the first event is on Sunday 17th March at Baschurch,  so we haven't got long to go now, Last Saturday we headed of to Chirk Marina as we heard that a presenter from Radio Shropshire (who does the dinner time slot 12:00pm till 3:00pm) is having a week on a narrow boat. He is doing his radio programme from the boat next week and will be travelling through Ellesmere and Uncle Ian has promised to take us to find him,  have a cup of tea and biscuits and listen to him do the show. You could say we are looking forward to it especially as almost 3 years ago The k9 marshal crew were on Crufts FM).


Uncle Ian has also told us that he knows that we have been texting Radio Shropshire  when he goes out forgetting his mobile, the people he goes to see at work have been telling him that they have heard the broadcasters reading our texts out on the airwaves. When he got home he chased us around the house to get his phone back and all we can do is laugh at him and run like hell so he cannot catch us!!! We  like to get involved with great things like helping our  D.J friend Johnty  with his treasure hunt and  help with the clues, The best  treat for us good this weekend was our  lovely walk from Colemere along the canal towards Whitchurch. Although it was a bit chilly we had a nice time stretching our legs, sniffing and exploring. We were out for most of the day and when we got home we got Uncle Ian to see how far we had gone along the canal. To our surprise we did 8 1/2 miles no wander we were tired when we got back to the Bedlie Limo, but credit where it is due Uncle Ian did give us a lovely tea and let us take a nice chew chew up to bed where we watched top gear on telly,  our favourite programme at the moment)! so for now we will say bye bye see you all soon Uncle Ian is calling us for our dinner with a cup of tea after it we hope! Jazz and Sapphire

Say Hello To Guy

Hello Bloggers,
Woke up this morning to a good covering of snow though doubt if it will be around very long.  Still the dogs enjoyed their walk and a good roll around in the snow.
Soooooo  here we have Guy, born on bonfire night hence the name, a good one.  He's now 15 weeks old and this is his first trim.  He was born up at Consett so is used to snow and cold weather as up in them Durham hills can get a bit cauld.
Now living down on the Durham coast at Easington so he'll not be too cold without all his coat clipped off.  Hope to see him more and perhaps we'll see a few more pictures of Guy as he grows and sent in by his owner.


Is there a bedlington underneath that coat?


Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! thats a relief after such an ordeal.  Now don't laugh at me


Funny taste this snow.

Thank you Derek from a little ball of fluff into a lovely liver baby. I bet his mum and Dad thought they were taking home a different dog! Do hope we get to see more photos of Guy as he grows and develops!

Fun In The Sun


Seamus enjoyed playing in the sunny garden yesterday, although it was rather cold.


I think the alternative title for this one should be " How a bedlington banks round corners at top speed. Sally
Thank you Sally Seamus looks to be having a great time, the action shot is fantastic, it demonstrates  how the bedlington’s conformation makes it extremely agile and quick  turning! 

Enjoying The Sunshine


We hope you all have enjoyed the nice few days of sunshine that we all had like Sapphire and Jazz. We made the most of the sunshine while it lasted by having some nice walks along the canals and meres looking for some fishing spots, and we will have a go when the fishing season starts. One of Sapphire and Jazz's favourite places is a mere called Colemere. Yesterday both of them were full of the joys of spring (even if it is a bit early for that)!  Sapphire and Jazz met up with some new doggie friends as well as some old friends, they were in their element playing and running about, they even had a paddle  helping one of their friends fetch a stick out of the water. Half way round they always like to explore the waters edge to see what they could find and as they came around the corner they scared a Heron off. They just stood still and watched the Heron fly off to another part of the mere before more exploring.  After that they didn't find much but had a great time looking about. When we got back Brian told us of the sad news of Billy losing little Betty Beach Ball and our thoughts are with Billy and family for Betty was a true super star, I know we will all miss her (bless her fury little socks)..

Just for fun Sapphire and Jazz would like to know if any of the bloggers remembers the year when an Englishman won the world rally championship and in what rally car he/she was driving at the time ? Let’s get the brain cells working and wormed up before this years Fun Day (questions will be asked!  I think Sapphire and Jazz have something up their sleeves to raise a bit more for Bedlington Rescue and Re-homing. They had better ring Lesley to put the idea across to her to see what she thinks, I will let you know the out come (ha ha ha )! And NO I'm not having my head shaved again like the  last Fun Day. After the last Fun Day my poor head was freezing but thanks to Tony and Sarah for the nice woolly hat it kept my single brain cell warm!!! So for now bye, bye I've got to replace the brake pads on the Bedlie Limo before I take the K9 Marshal Crew out for their daily walk. Ian and the K9 Crew
Thank you Ian winter has returned to the Cotswolds biting wind this morning!! Still at least we are having lighter evenings. Just another month until the clocks change to summer time! Great news for rescue if you have another idea for raising money!  You can talk about it to Carmel and Brian as the Midland Bedlington Club as they are running the fun day this year.

Jacob at 8 weeks old


Jacob went to to live with Tricia, Chris  and the girls last September.  Unfortunately he recently hurt a leg when playing and had a very long ferry ride and car trip to the nearest vet. Jacob lives on Oracoke holiday island in the USA.  Jacob is now well on the way to a full recovery although it will be a while before he can join in  boisterous rough play with the girls.

Billy Says Goodbye


It is with sad news I have to report that Billy had to say goodbye to Betty this morning. Betty picked up a serious infection and with her heart problems it became clear she was very very  poorly. Betty Beach Ball was one bedlington in a million and I knew there will be a few tears this morning as people read the news. We have lots of pictures of Betty so she will never be forgotten by us on the blog. Betty was much loved  and we feel for Diane, Billy and Hannah at this sad time.

Introducing “Fen”


I though I would share this photo of Fen. She is 4 & 1/2 months old. Her mum is Dawn Firzgerald's 'Sassy' and her Dad is my parents (Elaine & Ernie Tuck) 'Mac'. I brought her home last Wednesday and she is an absolute angel!

Thank you Katherine she is  gorgeous, I just love her little heart shaped white patch! Do send us updates as we love to see puppies on the blog!.



Thanks to Mary Godden for this super photo!

News From Florida “Billy Bob’s Babies”


Here we have two boys, they are 4 1/2 weeks old. And, are very cute, but very rambunctious already. But Mum, Molly seems to cope with them with perfect parental patience. God bless her. Billy Bob just struts around, being a proud Daddy about his sneaky litter behind my back. Mary Lou & The Marikov/Gipcyan Gang
Thank you Mary Lou what lovely strong looking boys! I bet they keep you on your toes. For those who are new to the blog Billy Bob is an English bred bedlington who went to live in sunny Florida. Outcrossing Amercan bred bitches to English lines has  widened the gene pool, Billy Bob and Molly have  produced some lovely puppies with quality coats.
