Thank you Jan Pete, just love the top photo, how can something so cute be so naughty!!

Hello To All Of Our Blog Friends


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!

Beddy Found


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

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! 
Best Wishes,
Cadogan Doggy Dogs

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.

For Sally



Bit of cheating going on here as this is from a couple of years ago.  Lets see a few more from you Bedlington folk. The Makems
Now Derek, I think your flower bed is more like April?

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.

Today Saw The Inauguration Of The First UK Pumi Club


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
