Y'all Ready For This?

Hello good furries and peeps of Blogland!

Yes, we've been away too long....so what's been keeping us so busy we hear you bark?
You ready? Well, let me tell ya......

We've had lots of "issues"....some PC related (again!), some paint related and some neither.
We've also been zooming around so much it's a bit of a blur....

Let's see..........well, we had some VERY special visitors all the way from Slovenia. Luna's human came to see us!
Luna's is one of the very first blogs we came across when we first started ours way back in September (OMDog, just realised we missed our own Blogaversary....duuh!!) so we were really excited to finally meet Teja......not only is she a fellow blogger.....she's from a whole nuther country AND she has a Beagle (so she loved us!). She had baked us some lovely treats (yummy cookies) and gave our Mum and Dad some really cool gifts, including a book about Slovenia for when we go to visit them (ahem.....you BETTER be taking us M&D! Heyyy, it's nextdoor to Italy so maybe we could see those lovely Golden boys and Maya too!)

She and her BF Ales, his son Lars (cutie-pie) and their friend Nina were touring Scotland for a few days and made time in their busy holiday to come for a walk with us :D

We went to Findhorn Bay, it was a lovely evening and Teja got some beautiful photos......check out her blog to see them! (she really does take lovely pics)

Dad was in charge of the treats.....he's less of a push-over than Mum! We were so excited to have someone to show off to we got the zoomies.....and after Rosie & Gabbi had tied Nina's legs up with their silly long leads Mum finally gave in and let them off to play properly. (and they behaved....OMD!!)

We zoomed.....

.......and played......

....until we were all zorsted! (thanks for that word Ludo!)

Thanks for coming to visit us guys, come back soon....and big juicy slobbers to Luna, if it weren't for her we would never have met!


We've done a couple of dog shows, well, the girls have.....us boys are retired you know!

First it was Roseisle companion show....Gabbi was 3rd Hound. It was a lovely sunny day :o) Mum made the ribbons for the show and you can see them on her rosette blog.

Then Mum and the boy took Gabbi & Rosie all the way down near Stirling for the Scottish Beagle Club show.

This guy almost came to a sticky end as he stood in the middle of the road wondering what the hurry was!

There was a wedding before the show, two fellow Beagle exhibitors were tying the knot there as it's such a beautiful setting and all their friends were there anyway, it was really lovely.

No ribbons to take home....Gabbi came 4th in her class but we had a lovely day, catching up with friends we haven't seen for ages :D

Beautiful Alva

Mother is now wishing she'd a) smiled....or....b) used the crop tool....or.....c) DIETED!

The Winners

We had arranged to go and see Marvin and his J before coming home but the show went on a bit too long so sadly it didn't happen.....probably because of the hilarity involved in getting this shot, what a hoot! (If you click on the SBC link above you'll see a much better version as Photo of the Month!)

Such a shame, we were so looking forward to it.....nevermind, next time Jeannie! (and sorry!!) We did manage a detour to Edinburgh for IKEA though, and the girls got to share a portion of meatballs for being so good.......grr, didn't save any for the boys!

This is how the sky looked out of our kitchen window the night before the show (Friday....see, I was still sort of taking part in SWF!)

We've had some beautiful weather too so we've managed some lovely walks at the beach and park.....but this post has already taken hours so we'll do a separate post for the walks.......and you'll get to meet this handsome fella!

So until next time folks.......

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

Hi Guys and Mum!

Yes, really sorry we couldn't meet up this time, but there will be other times I am sure, plus we may be up your way on work issues.

Watched The Hairy Bikers last evening on BBC 2 -(and yay! for the stay at home life ;0D ) and the Biker Boys were in Moray. Their Cook's Tour went all along the beautiful coast near you!

We have taken a short break from the blogs, but will be back in a few months. You can always email or I will email youse!

The pics were great btw on this post, how Marv would love a run on those beauteous beaches!

Love to the pups and to you!

Jeannie and Marvin xxxxxxxx

Riba said...

We're already looking EasyJets prices and other detailes, haha. Even prepared not to go to the seaside to come to Scotland next year. But I'm not sure if my parents would have Luna for two weeks and I'm really, really sad that I can't take her with me. We read everything about taking dogs to UK and outside UK ... We're really happy to meet you too .. and, naturally, we're cheering for you coming to Slovenia :o)

Luan sends kisses to SARG! :o)

Dearest Rosie & Gabbi
We bigified those pics of the beagle show - we can assure you "you wiz robbed"!
As your Aunties we intend to write forthwith a letter, in the strongest possible ters, outlining our dissastisfaction.
We hope you are not too disappointed but believe us wise old hound Aunties you are the bestest beagles!
We loved your pictures on the beach and how cool that you had a dog blogging friend all the way from Slovenia!
We know you have been busy but we still miss you.
Sometimes we sit here in the evening sharing a wee dram by the fire and wonder if this is what happens when you get old!
All our young relatives off enjoying themselves.....too busy for their old aunties.......!
You know we are only kidding - we are happy to see you back - we cannot get into that new fangled thing called Facebook where we have so many friends we dont know!!!
We keep being offered cows and pigs but we just like the quiet life.
We were in the woods forever by the way!!!!!!
love you lots
Aunties Martha & Bailey xxxxxx
