  • 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 []

    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 []
  • Back in Black(berries)

    The blackberries have put in an early appearance this year, and theyre a welcome addition to our walks by the local farms. Beanie & Biggles were the first to spot them this time around; in previous years it was up to me to detect and introduce this tasty mid-walk snack, but I think those ever-active []
  • Rascalitis

    Biggles is going to be six years old later this month, and it seems hes come down with an affliction that often hits nearly-birthday-boys: rascalitis. Unfortunately theres no cure for this disease; all a vet could do is confirm the diagnosis, but lets face it, the symptoms are unmistakeable: Mischievously nicking a bit of kibble []
  • Mole is a four letter word

    When we first moved to Ayrshire our back garden was invaded by a large yellow digging thing. Biggles was able to see off this trespasser using a combination of well-aimed pee and irate woofing. Now however we have a new interloping digger; much smaller than the yellow thing and it would seem possessing determination and []
