A dog’s best friend

Good afternoon everyone

Thought you might like to see Noah featured in a short slideshow modelling with his uncle kev last week. It was a lovely sunny day in Edinburgh, went on a lovely walk to Arthur seat, took quite a lot of pictures and in the process of going through them all. Will post a few more photo’s of Noah swimming and being close to quite a few swans. Noah wasn’t bothered in the slightest by them, however the swans were keeping a close watch on him. lol

Yikes I’m back folks

Hi there folks

Hi everybody

This pesky owner of mine has been kind of abandoning me lately as she is so busy with this big thing (that she keeps stuffing in my face) she calls it a camera.  So you’ve not seen me around here lately.

I have been ropped into modelling for her, Goodness its hard work.

dog tired

However I have been getting lots of attention from my uncle kev, I have been getting lots of walks and he’s great at throwing the ball. (which reminds me I need more, I seem to keep losing mine). Oh and I have a little friend who keeps shouting on me to come and play. (I can only go if the gate is closed or owner is working in the garden).

I’m doing good I recently went to the vet (tried to cheat on the scales but the vet caught me.) haha she said I was okay weight wise and I could even get away with having some biscuits for supper yipeeeeeeee. Had to get a big needle stuck into me, well it wasn’t that big really (I was brave I didn’t flinch or cry).

I did have a lovely day out with my owner and uncle kev last week (yip she did it again out with the camera) She said I was a natural and she couldn’t help snapping away.   MMMMMM maybe I did have a little something to do with it. Well I’m a handsome boy what’s not to like.  Here’s a little collection for you of me modelling.

Christmas thoughts

Ready for santa coming

Ready for santa coming

Stressful day today went to the printers, the present for my niece (a 12×10 print of a horse with a frame….had my name chopped off halfway through my surname. Ended up going and buying another frame and making a border and signing the border… it actually ended up looking better than the original frame. (lesson for today never get your name printed on your photographs unless you really perfect it. Have slowly been getting used to using photoshop (so much more to learn) plus for the last 3 prints I ordered the wrong size 7×5 instead of 8×6. (got the calenders mixed up….did some at 7×5 and 2 others as 8×6). I just ended up using them. One was ok as it was for the front cover, but one for my brother 2 of the months have smaller prints.

Another salsa Congress this time in Malta

November was a fantastic month for me apart from being my birthday I went to Malta for the first time and to stay in a 5* hotel, It was also the first time I have went to an international salsa congress. Not only was there over 2000 dancers from all walks of life, I had the chance to use my camera to get some shots of this beautiful Island.

My view over looking my balcony – each room had their own balcony

found the time to go for a stroll with the camera round my neck – thank goodness its a light model.

, The Only Sandy Beach Within The Valletta to Paceville

love these little boats

This boy captured my eye ( was trying to keep up with the man in front and looked so sweet carrying his own shopping bag)

Jersey

In October I was lucky to get some time away to a salsa congress and get some practice in using my camera. Here is a collection of photo’s I took while there.

This little seagull just happened to land just at the point of taking the shot

was so hoping to see them play but was over the other side of the park when I heard them

love the colours in this shot

La Collette power station chimney seen behind La Collette Gardens: shot taken from Havre des Pas promenade across beach. St. Helier, Jersey

paths through the gardens

Love the colours in the rock formation on the edge of the beach

Really thought this little dog was going to jump in, now if it had been my Noah there would be no hesitation. How i did miss him, especially seeing all the other dogs enjoying the beach

Rocks formations out in the sea




among the paths & Rocks

Jersey is a beautiful place, apart from hours of dancing, I was lucky enough to get some sight seeing in. Got quite a few inspirational shots to use for my calenders for this years christmas pressie’s.

Noah 1st Holiday – part 2

Here’s more pics of our time at Angecroft Caravan Park. Apart from a little rain on the Saturday, it stayed fairly dry for the next couple of days. It rained heavily late on the Monday night, we didn’t care though as we were nice and cosy in the the caravan. We woke early in the morning to find it was still raining . After breakfast I decided to brave the rain, I wanted to enjoy our last day at the caravan, and my brother was arriving late afternoon with his 2 kids to stay overnight and drive us back home in the morning.

 

 

 

 

 
After a long walk we headed back to the caravan, to dry off. After some lunch I settled down to watch Anne of green gables Continue reading

Oh what a week indeed

Just back from a little holiday with Noah up in the Scottish Borders – but that’s for another blog when I have time to sort through the many photos I took while I was there. We also had a little traveling problem and i will update you all soon I promise.

One thing I will say while I was away with no internet and no mobile phone, how wonderful it was to be unreachable it was no me, surrounded by hills, forests  a big river and Loch- which Noah loved playing and swimming in. A wonderful reflection time. It has been a very stressful time, these past 18 months, that I’m pretty sure is causing all the health problems I have been having. After a few days off pure bliss just me & dog, I’m feeling refreshed although my legs and feet are a bit achy from all the walking that I did.  Just hope they don’t give way as I have a salsa congress this weekend in Jersey.  I’m sure Noah is feeling the same, as he didn’t want to go out for a walk yesterday. Don’t get me wrong, I did miss my daughter, but it was nice to have sometime on my own. Now that I have updated my blog, I really must get to bed, I have an early morning flight to catch, I will keep you all, posted of my time there and of course show you my photographs.  After all it’s not just Noah that gets to have adventures. His owner needs some too.

Live like a dog!

Woke up this morning very early I may add – curtsy of my 2 nieces, with their little noses almost touching mine, with little whispers off  “We’re hungry”. How sweet, makes a change from Noah’s wet runny nose. What a beautiful sunny morning, the sun is shinning so brightly. It makes a lovely change, as for the past few days we have had rather a lot of wind and rain. The 1st thing I did, well after I fed the little hungry mites, was going on the computer checking emails and then logging onto Facebook. I came across this little post, well I just had to click and carry on reading. I thought I would share this with you all.
