Lovely day today at the Royal Norfolk show - the sun came out in time for the Pimms, strawberries and cream and birthday cake! Yvonne Bannister came back to her old hunting grounds for the day, and was rewarded with BOB and Group3 with Miteymidgets Look of Love. It was Mary's Brenda's 7th birthday, and she celebrated with the traditional pork pie. Unfortunately she wolfed it down before we could get a photo of her sitting beside it! How do all you people manage to get your dogs to sit nicely when there's grub under their noses? Must be something to do with the East Anglian air. Anyway, lovely time had by all – good luck to all of you going to Windsor. Viv xx
Thank you Viv, well done to Yvonne and a happy birthday to Brenda . Sounds like you had a fun day with all that party food and sunshine, raining in Oxfordshire this afternoon!

It is with great sadness I have to report the loss of the wonderful , UK/Bel/Ned/Int Champion Dalip Lord of the Rings just short of his 17th birthday. Kitch was owned jointly by sisters Pat Hall & Pam Morton, though shown by Pam he lived and was very much loved by Pat and husband Brian. He took his first CC '97 and went onto amass an incredible 32 CCs, 3 Group 1s, 1 Group 2 and 2 Group 3 Group 4 in Belgium. This made him the second top winning Bedlington in history, a marvellous achievement.
To add to this Kitch was a very much loved pet and companion with a unique character. Not only enjoying his travel to shows over the water but his holidays with Pat and Brian once retired from the ring. Never widely used at stud Trevor and I feel more than privileged that he was the sire to our first bedlington litter.
He will be very much missed and we extend our sympathy to Pat, Brian and Pam.
Trevor & Jane.
There will be a tribute in Dog World this week.
Thank you Trevor and Jane, sorry to read this sad news but he will be remembered by everyone who knew him here and overseas, a fantastic dog whose achievements will go down in bedlington history.
Here is a recent picture of Cotton. She was 2 on the 8th of June! She's still got her lovely deeper blue colour but has developed cute patches of lighter colour and at the moment has a pale stripe all down her back. For her birthday, of course she had the traditional pork pie, which was mixed in with different dog food samples and dog biscuits - she licked the bowl clean! We are still going along to our Rally Obedience class and she's really getting there now. It's great to have that one to one time together and it really pays off for her general obedience at home and on walks. We may even enter a competition soon if I get brave enough. Emma & Cotton
Thank you Emma a very happy birthday to Cotton. it is great to read Cotton is training in Rally Obedience, I am sure it won’t be long before she starts competing. I love to hear of bedlingtons taking part in performance sports, do keep us updated
So after the judging had finished at Blackpool we trotted off to the beach, just look at that blue sky and Peter if you see this another deserted beach. At least when the tide is out, you can't see the sea when it's all the way out. Thought Eileen might go on the Big Dipper but she declined the offer.
Now moved on to Derbyshire County Show, not the sun of Blackpool but once again a wet one. Here we have Sundance and Cassidy a couple of Bedlingtons from Huddersfield on a day out to the show, was expecting to see more but probably put off by the weather.
Because of the weather the judging was inside the tent which was to say a bit crowded. Here we have Junior Dog or Bitch Class winner Miteymidgets Look Of Love.

A nice display of veg in the flower and vegetable competition tent. All was sold off at the end of the show. Eileen would like to take the opportunity to thank all of the Bedlington folk for turning up at the show and for allowing her to judge their dogs.The Makems
Thank you Derek , lucky you blue sky in Blackpool, you don’t get many of those in a month! Shame about the Derbyshire weather but I am sure Eileen enjoyed her judging appointment. Lovely to meet Sundance and Cassidy!

Happy Birthday to Viv today, it is also Arthur and Erin's second Birthday. I think Erin is hoping for a larger pork pie this year, either that or she can pinch Arthur’s while his backs turned lol. Congratulations to Lou & Matt on the birth of little James, I presume the sideburns come later! Seriously we look forward to meeting him. Best wishes Jane
Ah the terrible twos, doesn’t time fly it only seems like yesterday when they were entering their first shows! Definitely the pork pies are to small one bite and they would be gone! Saying this hope they are being thoroughly spoilt and enjoying their special day.

Wishing my little sweetheart Ronnie a happy happy happy 2nd Birthday today! Here she is about to tuck into her pork pie with little brother Sparky (now almost as big as she is!) As you can see they have become great playmates since Sparky came to.us 8 weeks ago though she does still remind hin who wears the trousers from time to time... Happy birthday to Esther, Odie, Poppy and Ronnie's other brothers and sisters too X
A very happy birthday to Ronnie, it only seems like yesterday when we saw this litter as tiny babies! Ronnie certainly has her eye on that pork pie. A happy birthday to all the pups from this litter.

Catherine O' Driscoll founder of Canine Health Concern will be talking about vaccinations and raw feeding for our dogs, in Cleeve Village Hall,BS49 4PH. Starting at 7pm. on Friday 9th August 2013. Tickets price £6
I attended one of these talks a few years ago, it certainly makes you think about yearly booster vaccinations, Catherine also gives excellent advice on raw feeding.
Hello Everyone ... Have been a fan of the site for over a year now since buying our two liver Bedlington Girls Holly & Rosie from pups. I've finally plucked up the courage to post some pics of our much loved girls and also we have very recently rehomed a Beautiful Blue Bedlington Dog Milo who is just so amazing that I would love to share some pics of him with you all. The lady we got him from had very suddenly and unexpectantly lost her husband suddenly to a heart attack at only 53 years old and she was unable to cope with Milo whilst dealing with her grief. He was very much in need of some TLC so we spent a whole day of pampering and just look at how well he has scrubbed up!. I just had to take these pics of him posing for the camera. I am still learning with my grooming techniques but with practice i think i am getting there. He has settled very well considering what has happened to him and is getting along fantastically with the girls although its taking a bit for them to get used to the fact they now have a male who seems to be naturally taking charge. I am hoping to get a lovely picture of all the 3 of them together which i will post on the blog soon .
Much Love Helen
Thank you Helen and welcome to our blog. Milo looks fantastic and what a lucky boy to have found a forever home with two gorgeous girls. I am sure Holly and Rosie will soon get used to having a man about the house. Do send us news and updates, we love updates especially from those who give a forever home to an unwanted bedlington.

These two lovely bedlingtons were not wanted and found themselves in a shelter in Spain. Thanks to a dedicated team of people they were eventually taken to Holland. Emmie and Baps now how a wonderful forever home with Caroline Dalman. They certainly have smiley happy faces in this photo!.
Couple of snaps of pups relaxing in the sun this morning Still one male available & ready to go if anyone asking. regards, Mark
If you would like more info about his litter please email me and I will pass on contact details.
