R.I.P Pixie Sh Ch Upperwood Snowball For Redhara JW

A sad day today I had to say good bye to Pixie, my first Orange Belton English Setter at nearly 12 years old. At least Pixie is free from pain now. 

It is no secret within the breed that Pixie had a very high hip score, which is why she was never bred from. 

At the end of the day, it's luck of the draw with hip scores. You can do everything right for a dog as a puppy. Choose a puppy from parents with low hips scores. But if the scores are high they are high you can't change it. It also doesn't do the breed any good by hiding the fact, all you can do as a dog breeder is breed from stock with low hip scores.

Pixie was still a stunning Orange bitch in the show ring, who absolutely loved going to dog shows. She also and had ring presence, which is why she did so well and was made up at a young age. 

But as you would expect for a dog with a very high hip score her back legs did give her some pain in older life to the point where she could hardly get out of bed in morning. 

I never thought Pixie would live to the grand old age of nearly 12 years old, she did well.

16th November Gifts for cat lovers 


Did you know I have a cat, a silver tabby called Precious she is 16 years old now.

The photo is of my Ginger cat who was rescued years ago a lovely cat but she was disabled. Ginger was the nicest cat, she never scratched or tried to bite me like Precious does. She was just a nice grateful cat.

If you have friends with cats I have a gift guide for cat lovers >>>

28th October Pumpkins

A trip to Ashover Pumpkins & Sunflowers Derbyshire (S45 0BW)

No dogs are allowed in where the pumpkins are but they are allowed in the car park area which is a field.

If you want a different morning or afternoon out go pumpkin picking, it was a great experience. 

Something to do in half term.

18th August Red Squirrels 

No dogs, I booked a hide in Hawes North Yorkshire to photograph Red Squirrels. 

We had a fantastic time as soon as we got there the Squirrel's were running around the ground. Paul who I hired the hide off went out and put some feed out along the tree stumps's and various other places. It was amazing to watch and photograph them.

Jack had a never seen a Red Squirrel before so the reflection pool was perfect because at one point the Squirrel's were about 12 inches away from us. 

We will be booking again next year.

11th August Day out for Travis

A day out for Travis at Crich Tramway village. 

He really didn't like the ride on the tram so we got off the tram at the woodland walk. 

We had a nice day out, a picnic and a great walk around the wooden carvings in the woods. That was much more Travis's style the walk. 

Take a look at my blog post dog friendly days out with the dog Derbyshire for other places we visit with dogs.

1st August Peak Shopping Village Rowsley

We ended up at Peak shopping village at Rowsley off the A6 instead of somewhere else we were supposed to be going. The problem was we had Gertie with us.
At Peak village dogs are allowed in some of the shops which was lucky. Also at the bottom of the car park is a field walk next to the River Derwent.
We have never been on this walk before it's owned by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. The field  was perfect for walking Gertie around.
A warm day but we found shade in the tree's for our picnic.

8th July R.I.P Crystal Cracker

It's never an easy decision, but they usually make it for you which is what Crystal did today.
Crystal made it to twelve and a half years old which is a good age for an English Setter. 
It is very sad when they go, but dogs don't live long and you have to enjoy them while they are here. 
Crystal loved digging giant holes in the garden that is what she did every day, even at twelve years old. A beautiful light Tri colour English Setter who was never clean. She was always covered in mud and didn't really like being groomed much either. That was Crystal  
Here is are a few photos of Crystal being Crystal.

27th June Midland English Setter Society Double Open Dog Shows

Midland English Setter Society held two open shows at Bearley CV37 0SR
I entered 'Gertie' Redhara Lady Gaga into the 2nd show which Dilys Watts was judging. 
Gertie is 6 years old next week and has never been to a show. I thought the MESS 2nd open show would be perfect to try Gertie at for these reasons.
The show was outside, there would only be English Setters there and by entering the 2nd show this would give Gertie time to settle. Gertie did well, she was the only one in the class so won 1st in Limit Bitch. Overall for a dog that has never been shown she handled the day well. We had a great day out and Jack was on camera duty he did a great job.

SmugMug website for the dogs

I am so happy about this, I've the moved the dogs website back to SmugMug from WordPress.
Here you are your on it now!!
It is about a 30 page website and it's so much better for me already. 
The slideshow feature is perfect on the news and the dogs pages. 
I can safely say this website is going to be full of more photos very soon. 
I used a free template within SmugMug to build the website too. 
I love it. 

If you are interested in using SmugMug for your dogs website you can read my review about SmugMug. I have a set up guide, a discount off any new SmugMug account on my photography website >>>

5th June Crich Tramway Village 

A visit to Crich Tramway today the weather was so hot, it was lovely.
We managed to get a ride on the open-topped tram.
Crich Tramway Village is a dog friendly place and we have taken Pixie before for a ride on the trams. 
Once you pay your for entry into the village thats it covered for 12 months. 
Each time we go from now on for the next year we don't need to pay the entry fee which is brilliant.
I would love to take Gertie next we go there.
