    Every now and then one of my body parts decides its had enough and goes on strike. At the start of the year it was my shoulder, but over the last month its been my right calf thats rebelled. I struggled on with it for a bit, as I tend to do, until eventually it []

    The weathers turning wintery and both Beanie & Biggles have decided to jettison their warm-weather romper suits. Now I know that Beagles are only relatively small dogs with short hair but let me tell you, their discarded fur is everywhere. Not so long ago we bought a new vacuum cleaner one of those extra []

    Halloween has come round again, and our two little horrors have been very busy. On the beach, they proved their hunting ability by catching a goat. Yes, a goat! The goat was long dead of course, in fact it was basically just an empty skeleton with a partial covering of skin and fur. And when []
  • Seven Years Young!

    Beanie had her seventh birthday at the weekend, which is kind of amazing on three counts: Shes a suicide machine on legs. Beanies eaten scores of things she shouldnt, including soft plastic that turned sharp and rigid in her gut, whole packs of sausages (still wrapped), toxic palm oil washed up on the beach, and []

    Due to a very sad family event we ended up spending a few days in the north of England near the Lake District. I was on solo Beagle-sitting duty for one of those days, and I took them a little way across the country to the famous Ingleton Waterfalls Trail. I had nothing but good []

    Ive got into the habit of taking portraits of our two Beaglets each year around their birthdays. I like to have a record of how theyre changing through the years, and anyway its usually good fun. This time around though it proved to be a little more painful, and a lot more costly, than on []
  • Help! Somebody shrunk my ferry!

    Until our recent trip to the Isle of Kerrera, Beanie & Biggles probably considered themselves to be experts when it comes to ferries. Theyd ridden on them twice to Arran and once to Iona, and those trips had taught them everything they needed to know, specifically: (1) ferries have railings that are wide enough apart []
  • Biggles’ Sixth Birthday!

    What bounces like a soggy tennis ball, smells like a fish and looks like a poo gone wrong? Answer: the cake I made for Biggles sixth birthday. Ive always been a crap cook, but it seems Im even worse at baking. I dont even know where I went wrong. I had world-leading experts in bakery []
