We haven't seen too much of anyone recently, but we HAVE been to Haughmond and it's just lovely this time of year. It would be a great venue for a Christmas walk and we'd love to join in anything that's arranged. Hope everyone's well and ready for another cold snap. I think the first snow photos of the year could be just around the corner, and I'm still snapping so keep an eye on the Flickr link, still located on the top right of the blog. I've accompanied this post with a couple of Haughmond winners and hope you like them. Take it easy and hope to catch up soon! (Well done Elsa, by the way, after the major surgery.)

Getting withdrawal symptoms with no dog youth club meetings.I have managed to meet up with a few die hards but hoping for a better turn out this weekend. Latest Haumond Hill news is that the cafe is now up and running with a few hic cups . The 'Grand' opening went sort of well last weekend . Bernie and Ellen have decided not to allow dogs in the cafe( which is rather small) after a rather nasty dog fight that knocked over a few cups of tea and tables. But they will be putting up some dog hitching post. There are a numer of new picnic tables out side so plenty of sitting spaces.
Anyone interested in setting a date for a Christmas Dog walk? Not many weekends left before christmas. I am sure that the cafe would provide some mulled wine and mince pies.

I can't believe there has been no mention of our (cough) pub quiz attempt - it takes skill to come last! Perhaps next time we should put forward a team of our dogs, they'd have more chance.

Same time next month then? :)

Warm Welcome

We'd really like to echo the post by Jay, Tor & Wilson - thanks to all for making us feel so welcome. Since moving to the 'shire in July we've really enjoyed meeting you all; Charlie has made some friends (when he's not too busy scenting the WHOLE park!) and you've all helped to make us feel very settled.

We'll still be around in the dark some nights, and I'm often out at lunchtime as I work from home. Failing that we're fast becoming regulars at the Dog and Pheasant so we'll hopeful see some of you there. And as it's only 7 weeks, 3 days until the big day, maybe we should arrange a Christmas dog walk? Perhaps with mulled wine...

Not sure if we'll make it to the pub quiz tonight, blame Jim and night flying. But good luck :)

Two Very Intense Struggles...

Wee Wilson and big lad Kobe go head to head over a very soggy rat-like toy, and it's the first Wednesday of the month again so it must be quiz night in the Dog and Pheasant! Once again, it would be good to get together over some questions and a drink, so if anyone wants to get involved, see you there tomorrow night. The first question is around 8:30ish so bring your brains, because we only managed third (out of 4!) last month!
