Zanzibar the house dog!

Hi All, not posted for ages and ages but I am overseas and have a lot of time on my hands this evening. As some of you know we have a dog over here in Sudan called Zanzi, she is a very good girl but can mischievous. She likes to have her tummy rubbed, plays with her ball and HATES Somalian truck drivers.

The picture was taken outside our house during a rare moment when we could get her to sit and be still.

I think she is the most pampered dog in town, treats, ball, sofa, most dogs here in Juba scavenge on the street, although our neighbours have a very nice but mad dog called Ugly Betty. Mean but sadly appropriate (she is lovely really)

In the eye of the beholder..

He's such a handsome chap isn't he old Dylan, and such a joy to watch tearing across the field with his unique, crazed and comical style of running/leaping and swerving - he never fails to make me smile. And earlier this week he was very obliging in letting me take this portrait of him in one of his rarer static moments!

Knee Deep in Hounds

I met the South Shropshire Hunt today and whatever your views, there is no denying the beauty of the Foxhounds as they wait anxiously to get going. Castle Walk has got me used to being surrounded by dogs and it's a great feeling! Obviously I had my camera with me and got some smashing shots of these exceptionally calm and friendly characters. When I got home and onto the field we must have missed you all, so hope everyone's well and maybe catch you tomorrow.

Different Strokes for Different Folks...

Everybody's got their favourite pics from all of those that find their way on to our little blog, but what's yours? With just over 800 views on Flickr, this one from a couple of weeks ago seems to have intrigued quite a lot of people! At the time I thought it was nothing special, but must admit to being pleasantly surprised by the comments and views it has received. Looking at pictures of our dogs and the things they do gives me endless enjoyment and I'm sure it's not just myself and Nick who regularly point our cameras at the 'Castle Walk Pack', so if you have any nice pictures, make sure you share! See you in the week.

Bad Hair Day

Getting cute photos of Lydia is somewhat like shooting fish in a barrel, she seems to love the camera. Normally impeccably coiffured, it's nice to see that even she has a bad hair day, still adorable though, I think you'd all agree.

its been ages since i have been on the blog.There are some great new photos of new dogs.
It was so good to see some familiar faces (Archie and Nick) and Anth and Nick of course!when Inca and I visited castlewalk at the w/e.she had a fab time.Archie was a little amarous and I think poor Lily as a little jealous.No need Lily, you are so gorgeous.
Inca also had the best time when Jackie and Barrie looked after her over half term going to the field daily with Ollie.Its def one of the things we miss the most since moving.We hope to be back soon. Lisa x

Make the most of the peace and quiet!

Jack won't be around for a while. He gashed himself on some barbed wire at the weekend - rabbit chasing! He looked magnificent as he ran and then leapt majestically over the fence into the grounds of the Abbey on Haughmond Hill. But his moment of pleasure has consequences and he's off to the vet tomorrow for stitches, ten days rest and lead walking!

Shepherd No. 3 in the evening light...

Even though he ruins every single ball Archie ever brings on to the field, he's still a great lad. This shot is obviously not his best side, but I'm quite proud of it all the same. It kind of sums up a pleasant evening on the field. It was a nice place to be tonight.

Watch out for the 3 nice German Shepherds...

With Teddy and Polo (above), and of course Lloyd George himself, we are lucky to have three fantastic German Shepherds on the walk at the moment. They really are a stunning breed and it's great to see them making friends and mixing so well with the regulars. There was a Spring-like feel to this afternoon and as well as all the running around Archie took it upon himself to take the plunge and show everyone his swimming skills. Wilson was so inspired he jumped right in and quickly earned his 10m badge - which was good news for Jay and Tor as he was absolutely filthy before he went in! Have a good week everyone.

Tag Team Westies...(yesterday)

Wilson the wind-up merchant targetted "the boys" last night and Zak and Fin did their best to keep up with everyone's favourite beagle. I would call it good, clean, fun but those Westies never stay white for long eh Lynn?

brilliant photos always! Yes! I have checked the site out as you hinted I should! Zak is thrilled to be seen executing his best stand up pose.... Fin said nothing, but is probably reserving his best for later! As for me...I spend most of the time avoiding collision... why is it always me the dogs seem to aim for??? How about a little respect fot old ladies you young whippersnappers?? Ha Ha See you alll soon

Shot of the Day

If I get time, I'm aiming to get a picture a day on the blog. Ideally each picture will have been taken on the same day. No promises though... This is Archie flying in this afternoon's sun. Love it!

Kai, Rodney and Co.

It was really busy at the weekend, and the ever-so-slightly-warmer weather, meant that the camera was out! New(ish) faces, Kai the Alaskan Malamute, and Rodney the Ridgeback provided bags of energy so "Wee Willy Wilson" was in his element with his Hi-Viz hoop! Missed the majority tonight (saw Ralphie, 'Balti' and TJ) but judging by the amount of sniffing Archie did, a few of you had obviously been about! Great to see some momentum building with the blog and looking forward to Tapas with Andrea the Doberman. Hope you're all up for it and see you soon. P.S. More photos on Flickr - follow the link on the right.
