Catching Up....

So here we are playing catch-up again....

On Friday we went for a lovely evening walk on Findhorn's north shore. We saw another stone arrangement, the most impressive so far we think....are these the new sandcastles?

Saturday was hectic for the humans, which means we had a lazy day....zzzzz....

On Sunday we went to our Nanny's for a BBQ....well, they had burgers etc, we got frozen peanut butter banana yoghurt kongs just like the OP Pack have....mmmm! Alfie finished his and offered to clean the barbecue!

Today we went to Findhorn for a windy walk, this time around the bay. (The boys are wearing their collars again as they have rediscovered their prey-drive [it never really left!] and we've had a couple of deerhunting episodes....best to be safe!)

Rosie-watch....including tummy-cam!

Dreamin' of my Petey :D

We are going to be even slower on the blogs over the coming weeks, Mum is having a massive clear-out before decorating....and of course preparing for the arrival of puppies....we have lots of birthdays coming up and the mancubs will be off school soon too so it's all go here. There is also lots happening in the town over the next few weeks, Burgie International Horse Trials takes place next week, which is great fun and has lots of other non-horsey stuff going on like Lurcher racing....we also have Forres week soon with lots of activities including the Red Arrows performing over our park! We'll try to get out and about for some photos and post whenever possible and in the meantime we'll do our best to catch up with you all soon!

Oooh, almost forgot....Petey had a great idea. Whoever can guess how many puppies Rosie has and on what day, gets to nickname the puppers....if it's a tie then we'll go with whoever also correctly guesses how many boys and how many girls! Her due date is 4th July....their chosen nicknames will stay with them until they go to their furever homes!

Amber-Mae said...

ow, your tummy is getting bigger! You better not do too much vigorous exercise just to be safe but do go for slow walks often. Looks like you guys had a fun time at the beach!

Hi beagles,
Great photos as ever. And good to see that Rosie is looking quite glowing - hope everything continues to go well. Sounds like you'll be busy over the next few weeks, Have fun!

Life With Dogs said...

Wow do you have a packed schedule! I'm going to put in my puppy guess at seven. Now do you really want to let me nickname the dogs if I win?? ;)

Niamh said...

I like those rock constructions! Look like you beagles had a good snooze on the couch. I am sure Rosie needs lots of naps since she is carrying all those little ones. Looks like you all will be very busy in the next few weeks.

Your friend,
Niamh

Tobi said...

Great pics - the very last one being my favorite. I'm a big fan of the Dughallmor Beagles - they are just beautiful. That pile of rocks is super interesting.

Sue said...

Tell your humans to carry the camera when they attend the various happenings over the next few weeks.

I had a hard enough time naming our pups, I'll pass on this one.

RockstarJen said...

I can't wait to see the puppies! Always a great sight. Those stone sculptures are very cool. We don't have enough rocks on our beach for that. Maybe someone will try it with shells? ;)

The Devil Dog said...

Love the stone arrangement. Mom wonders how they managed to get it to stay up, much less straight. Love the photos. We'll miss you when you're gone, so don't be gone too long.
And the puppies? Mom needs to find out how many are normal before she puts in a guess.

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

As it has not been put yet we shall guess 8. That does seem a lot though, we have not a clue really of how many they usually have so it is a guess.

Wow, someone must have taken ages doing those pebble hills.

Thanks for sharing your beach fun shots.

The OP Pack said...

Great Rosie watching - love those tummy shots and those markings on the back. Interesting stoneworks:)

We will guess four Rosies and 2 Peteys on July 6th.

Woos, the OP Pack

Oh, we are so excited about the puppies!! BB wants a beagle puppy desperately, but I've told her we can't get a new puppy till I'm finished with my diss. in Dec. Then I'll have all sorts of time to devote to a puppy!
Sounds like you have tons going on-- looking forward to seeing pics!
Please drop by when you get time; we've given you an award. I'm sure you have gotten it before, but we wanted to recognize you!
Cheers, LizzyB.
P.S. I'm going to guess 3 girls and 3 boys.
