Every Dog owner knows

I came across this article and thought I would share it with you all http://themetapicture.com/every-dog-owner-knows-this-is-true/

It gave me quite a laugh, especially the last one as that’s my Noah (No lie in for me lol). This compelled me to look through the archives of Noahthedog.

Here’s some pics of Noah in action…………..

“Are you going to get up (there is going to be trouble if you don’t)”

Image

“What do you mean it’s time to go home”

Image“Did you say BATH”

Image“Can I go out”

Image

“Yah she’s up and packing the camera, that can only mean 1 thing………I’m going out”

Image

“No no no I’m not ready to go home, I’m going back in”

Image

“Do not disturb”

Image

“Nope the stick aint toooo big”

Image

“put that thing away and come and play”

Image

“weeeeeeeeeeeee heeeeeeeeee sand bath”

Image

This time we’re both caught out, taking a nap

Noah – having fun with big sticks

It’s been a while since I posted anything. I have been finding it hard to be inspired about anything lately. Winter has been long and dreary. It is either dark, bleak or raining in Edinburgh.

I took this picture of Noah at the end of autumn last year and thought I should share it with you all.  It didn’t get that many likes on my personal FB page (I reckon my friends are not that hung up on dogs lol). I’ve entered him into a dog contest (My first) he hasn’t got that many votes at the moment (despite posting on my personal FB page or photography page), so I’m asking bloggers here to help him get more votes. He has turned into a handsome and sometimes crazy dog. If you think he deserves your vote pop over to kingspet it won’t take more than a minute to place your vote and no need to resister (unless your a pet owner and wish to enter yourself)

 

Thank you for stopping by

Noah with swans

I have been promising you to show the latest of Noah’s shots while out on a day trip to Arthur seat  taken a couple of weeks back when it was a nice sunny day. I have been trying out different settings on the camera, and on an earlier post you would have seen Noah modelling amongst the buttercups. I hasten to add I really was just going to take some shots of flowers for a project I was working on, when he just went into the shot and remained there so who couldn’t resist taking a few of him. He is a natural infront of  the lens, maybe I should enter him into a contest.

well here they are I hope you enjoy them:

You can also view them in higher resolution on my main photography page along with many more of Noah & the beautiful swans. Here

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.

It’s called Among the field of buttercups. You can view more of my pictures here https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.177627965736343.1073741884.150571941775279&type=3

Noah the model dog

A quick update on Noah: Noah has turned out to be a rather handsome dog. Wherever we go people will often stop to admire his good looks. Noah helps and inspires me in a quest to becoming a better photographer. He is so easy and patient in front of the camera. I think he sees himself as the next ‘Model Dog’

Aka Noah get’s a halter

well folks it’s been some time since I posted anything. It’s been a pretty stressful few months, on the plus side things can only get better. After suffering from lingering pain in my shoulders, I just had to do something about walking with Noah. After months of being haled all the way to the park, walks were beginning to become a bit of a pain.  As you may know Border Collies just don’t take to being on leads. Overall Noah is a pretty good dog, but not when he’s in such a rush to get to the park and play his favorite games of chasing balls, frisbee’s and whatever else he can find. So after some advice Noah and I took a trip to Pets at home and purchased a halter. Considering Noah is now over the age of 2 and never had anything put over muzzle, he did so good (I’m actually quite proud of him). The shop assistant actually said he should be a model (got quite a few shots of him doing this, one for another blog). So we have been doing a bit of training. Take a look at how cute he looks.

Noah’s 1st Holiday – Part 1

Well fellow  bloggers I have been promising you this post for a while now, I’ve finally got round to organizing  some of the many photos of our time at a caravan in Ettrick Valley.

We left on the saturday 13th October. The travel plans didn’t quite go to plan. I had originally planned to leave the day before, but as I was working I didn’t relish the thought of travelling late in the day (which was just as well I didn’t).  a good friend was planning a visit back to Edinburgh for that very weekend. So I went out dancing and enjoyed a catch up off her news of her settling into a new area and job. When I rechecked travelling plans that very night I found to my dismay there wouldn’t be a bus that would take us from Selkirk Town to Angecroft caravan park ; as I had originally thought. Apparently it’s only the local school bus they use, and as it was a Saturday there was no other means of transport to getting there. Lets just say I panicked, Continue reading

Noah’s 1st train ride

Decided now that Noah is getting older he needs more adventures in his life, and certainly me too. I’m going to try at least one a month to go to new places to explore, I get rather bored going on the same walks around where I stay. I’m sure Noah does too. Beginning of October Noah went on his First Train Ride. I never knew that dogs could travel on trains as I had never saw any, whenever I had to travel. I love the countryside and since having Noah even more so. The things that’s happened while on our travels speaks volume’s to me that I really must learn to drive. Noah got rather impatient while waiting for the bus into town, that it got later to go for the train ride than intended. He was rather fidgety on the bus, not settling very well and barking, he would only stop if people were talking to him or petting him. He is getting rather spoilt whenever we travel, as people can’t resist his good looks. After burning off some of his energy we headed for the train station.

After 40 mins we arrived to our destination. we all had a great day out. We headed back to the train station a little tired, a little wet and rather hungry. We stopped off in town to get some fish and chips, couldn’t believe it when I got two fish and a fairly decent size too with my supper, now if I had been in Edinburgh, I probably would only have received a measly one.

We had a little time before the train was due, so we sat down to enjoy our food. Noah enjoyed having a little of the fish, didn’t want to give him too much; as I didn’t want him to be sick on the train or bus going home. I had a chance to take more photographs too.

Although I do have to say we got home rather late that intended, all to do with me having a little mishap.

The train back home

I forgot my rucksack, I had left it on the platform bench. I hadn’t even noticed until I sat down, and the train was moving off. Panic set in. I asked my daughter if she had picked it up, as I had taken it off to retrieve a drink, then went off for a cigarette and left it sitting next to the carrier back with both our books in, that we had bought earlier. Nope she had the carrier bag, but not my rucksack. I went one stop and headed back to see if it would still be there. My daughter stayed on the train with Adam, while I got off with Noah. Everything happened so quickly and when you panic you don’t think properly, my daughter later informs me I should have left Noah with them. Noah and I had a half hour wait until the train would come, to head back to see if my rucksack would be there.

So we sat waiting on a dark and lonely platform and I couldn’t believe how stupid I was to forget my bag. I had no money and battery was just about to go dead. My daughter called to say she would leave money at the train service to ensure I would get home okay, and that she ad reported it to train services and also called the police in Burntisland.  There wasn’t another train due at that platform until the next one to Edinburgh which I would be catching back. After half an hour we reached the other platform – no Rucksack.  we had another half hour wait to catch the train back home.

The positive side in all this, we met a some lovely people who were quite taken with Noah – he always gets attention wherever we go. One chap who came over to pat Noah,  was so taken with him. He told me that Noah reminded him off his own dog, a border collie; who had died a couple of years previously after a long and happy life. Who he really still missed a lot. After chatting and patting Noah, he turned round to his wife and said “We really must get another dog”. He had been in two minds whether to get another dog, and after spending time with Noah, his mind was made up. He tells me maybe he could get a rescue border collie. I wish him well. Another chap with his wife and toddler tells me he grew up with border collies on a farm in Belfast. He too was quite taken with Noah. Noah was so gentle with the baby, he is so good with small children and has been ever since he was a pup. The tail would wag and he always wants to go up to buggies whenever he sees one. He too turns round to his wife and tries to get her to come over to see Noah and says “Look how good the baby and dog are together, maybe we should get a dog”  He tells me how good it was to have dogs in his life growing up and how he misses it now he is an adult with a young family.

So if I hadn’t left my rucksack we wouldn’t have been on that train, or if I had left Noah with my daughter, then Noah wouldn’t have had the opportunity of touching these people’s lives. So I came away happy and left these people reminiscing in their fondest memories. I also got a pleasant surprise to find my daughter waiting as we stepped off the train.

 

In the rucksack had been my purse with some money and all my cards, keys, daughter’s cardigan, a book which didn’t belong to me. I was gutted as I had been enjoying the book and had reached an exciting part, a half bar of chocolate that I had been saving to enjoy a cup of coffee with when I reached home, and Noah’s thrower,  So that night was spent cancelling all my cards, the good news they hadn’t been used. The down side is that week I had to borrow money until the new cards came, getting new keys cut and I will have to replace the book and buy my daughter another cardigan. So whoever came across my rucksack and wasn’t honest enough to hand it it, I really hope the same doesn’t happen to you one day.

A spring day in October

What a busy October it is turning out to be, so much to do and so little time. I can’t believe its the middle of October already. Have been rather busy with work, planning holidays, getting to grips working the new camera and editing masses of photos. Here’s a little collection of a trip to Princes street gardens before Noah going on his 1st ever train Journey.

 

This is the Scott  monument, which stands at the entrance to the 1st section of the gardens. It has a whopping 287 steps. I have yet to climb all the way to the top. I don’t care much for heights. I’m pretty sure around 10 years ago I almost got to the top but bottled out as the steps are rather old and spirals which is even worse – as a child I fractured my elbow fallen down spiral steps when I was delivering leaflets. As an adult I really should overcome this fear.
