Where did we go?????

Tuesday, February 4th, 2020

Yes we are still here, not that you would think it when you look at this web page. Life unfortunately took over and this was one of the casualties. I will try and update on a few things over the next few days/weeks…

A long overdue update

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

Life unfortunately has taken over from the website of late and there has been a complete lack of updates for which I apologise. We also had a major set back in April when Tayla our old girl passed away very suddenly. I say old but she was only 4 days off her 7th birthday. It was an awful shock to come down on Easter Sunday to find her lying asleep as we first thought, only to find she was no longer with us. She had been fit and healthy and had been playing with my two boys as usual on the Saturday and putting Angus and Mya in their places as normal! We didn’t go for a post mortem, it wasn’t going to bring her back, and I suppose we should be pleased she obviously didn’t suffer, but we definately did with her loss!

Buddies for Ever Mamma Mia at Stormwardens (Mya)

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

SONY DSCWe hadn’t planned on getting another black girl so soon, my heart has been set on a brown girl for a long time now. But after a chat and some photos with Alex from Buddies, the next thing I knew Mya was on her way. With help from friends of Alex’s and ours Mya travelled to Crufts and then came over to us in Northern Ireland. And we love her. She is a sweet heart, can be quite shy at the start and then the bouncing starts! We will dedicate a page to Mya soon, update Angus’s and put up a results page.

Combined Canine International Show

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

SONY DSCOn Saturday 19th April we all headed off to Dublin for the day for an International Show. The sun was shining – doesn’t often happen for dog shows and we didn’t have to be in the ring until 2pm instead of the usual 8.30am! SO it was good before we even left! Angus won his Junior class with excellent and got Reserve Green Star Dog so well done him. And Mya, our new baby who has been under wraps until now, got Best Baby Puppy in Breed! So happy with my two babies 🙂

The problems of a mild winter and Newfoundlands!

Monday, March 10th, 2014

Unfortunately Angus will not be showing in Dublin at the Celtic Winners Show next weekend. He has decided to dump all his coat. This winter has been much to mild for the Newfies…..

Tayla the pro – video

Tayla used to swim quite a bit in the lough and the sea when she was younger so it all came back to her pretty quickly!

Angus was a bit spashy to start with 🙂

Hydrotherapy – Paws4Swim

Monday, February 17th, 2014

Had a brilliant day yesterday at the Hydrotherapy pool Paws4Swim in Lisburn. Tayla and Angus had a ball. The swimming came back to Tayla straight away but it was Angus’s first time in the pool so it took him a little while longer to get the hang of it. Can’t wait for their next session. Photos and videos to follow soon!
