Just one comment on the MBTC photos from yesterday but the blog was accessed 521 times , hopefully this year’s Crufts photos will once again be viewed from people all over the world, Last year we recorded 900 hits in one day for the Crufts photos!. We have 13 years of Crufts photos form 2001. After Crufts this year the blog will no longer be updated although you will be able access it to look at archived photos and news over the last 8 years. Jon will also put a link on for the last 13 years of Cruft’s photos for you to enjoy.
Sapphire and Jazz here, Just to say that Jazz and I have gone back into training for the new routine for this years dog displays. We have just 3 weeks before our first display at Walford and North Shropshire Collage in Baschurch near Shrewsbury. Every year we change the display to keep the human people interested and yes, Jazz and I still do the fire walk along the dog walk, Uncle Ian says that we are his little super pups when we do the displays! Since our last report we have been out for very nice walks with Uncle Ian, Jazz and I really enjoy meeting our doggie friends and having a run around with them playing. I think that we are getting into this astronomy thing for every evening we go with Uncle Ian to see the space station flying over head and Uncle Ian points out all the different star consolations for us. Oh we almost forgot to say, in our report just before Christmas, you will remember, when Granny and Uncle Ian took Jazz and to an Antiques Fair near Oswestry ( at a place called Park Hall). Well keep watching Bargain Hunt at dinner time (12:15pm till 1:00pm) on BBC 1, as hopefully you might see two Bedlington Terriers on it milling about in the back ground, that will be the K9 Marshal Crew with Jazz and myself also with our Uncle Ian and Granny in tow We hope to keep watching it as it hasn't been on from Park Hall as yet but we have got our paws crossed that it will be on soon.
So for now woof, woof from Sapphire and Jazz (The Two Very Happy Rallying Bedlingtons here in Shropshire)
Thank you Sapphire, at last spring must be round the corner with the first display in three week’s time. It will be so nice to see some sun and be able to walk in the countryside without the dogs coming home covered in mud. I will certainly be looking a Bagain Hunt if I am at home lunch time!

Just seen a report on facebook of a female blue beddie found in the Byker area of Newcastle upon Tyne today. I believe she is either being held, or is going to be held at Benton cat and dog shelter. I have advised the people advertising on Facebook to contact you. Fingers crossed we can get this poor lost lamb home
Thanks Cary lets hope she is back home soon if anyone has more information please email me.

Haven't contributed to Bedlington Pictures before and could only see your email address so hope I'm sending this to the right place. I saw the photos of the dogs in flower beds and decided to send you two shots I took of our lovely dearly departed dog Dorian taken last spring. He very sadly got hit by a car last month, just two weeks short of his first birthday, and we miss him so much. We are hoping to get a puppy in spring as all the litters we've enquired about seem to be due mid March. If anyone knows of any other litters due sooner please do let us know; me and my young son are missing having a dog around so much. Or if anyone fancies lending us a Beddie till May, we could do with the cuddles!

Thank you Alix this is such a sad story, what a beautiful puppy Dorian was. You must have been devastated. Hopefully it won’t be long before a new beddy baby joins the family.
Seamus would just like to reassure everyone that spring is on the way by showing you the primulas, crocus and anemones before the wrecking ball (Bridie) destroys the lot.Sally
Oh dear, what a shame, naughty Bridie, it must have been lovely to see the spring flowers from the patio window!

Its so hard trying to get the boys out for a good walk in this weather,then it starts to rain.They are not impressed. Deborah Stoddart
Thank you Deborah, they look so lovely and clean in the top photo and then thoroughly miserable in the rain. I bet they needed a good wash to get those muddy legs and paws clean.

Nothing better than a beddy cuddle after the washing up!
Stuart and and Anglea Yearley. Stuart handles the dogs with precision while Angela who we rarely see at shows grooms the four and two legged Lowbrook team to perfection ! Have a lovely evening celebrating!
Blue, a 7 month old Bedlington Terrier, has just arrived. He has come in as his owner's health has deteriorated since they got Blue and they felt they couldn't give Blue what he needs. He is such a happy well cared for dog

Today was the inauguration of the first Pumi club, It was exciting to meet other owners form all over the country, and Kate Pinches an experienced breeder who travelled from Hungary to give us a talk on the breed history and the standard. Application has been applied for to the Kennel club for registration of a new breed and hopefully before long we will be able to show the Pumi on the import register
