Just too nice for work today

It seems such a long time since we enjoyed a morning like this, so Alfie our rescue Labrador, along with his housemates Tess and Jaja, and his pals Baily, Zac and new friend Woody 'forced' us to take them for a great walk to the cooling pond for some fun.

Alfie's best friend in the world is the light coloured retriever Zac, when these two get together their shared brain cell is lost forever and as you see, fun is the name of the game.

The dogs at play together are my Tess,Alfie, Bailey, Zac and their new pal Woody the Lurcher who until very recently spent 7 months in a kennel at the RSPCA awaiting a new home, at last his has found his own special home along with Trevor and his partner who love him very much and have taught him what being a 'special' boy is all about.

Not much work done so far today, infact not ANY work done so far today - so I must also use this opportunity to show off the dog products available in my shop.

First we have a tote bag in Lavender with a photo of Bailey the Retriever, this bag is also to show the possibility of your very own photograph which can also be used in a tote bag design.

Here is one for the Chocolate Labrador fan

This bag is the same as the one I use, with all the colours of Labrador on

Lastly, most recent listing from me in my Folksy shop (the photo's all take you there) is this holder for your glasses, mobile or other gadget

Hope you are all out enjoying the wonderful weather whilst you can, this is just perfect for me as I am not a fan of the heat, but love the sun with a nice cooling breeze.

  1. What gorgeous dogs and all having so much fun. We have a chocolate lab and she loves belting about with all her doggie friends.
    Couldn't resist your chocolate lab tote after looking at all the photos!!!

  2. Great to see the dogs having such a good time, though I wouldn't want all those wet dogs in my house!

  3. Thank you Shoogly, will get that off to you tomorrow.

    LOL, good thing about nice weather is the dogs are almost dry by the time we are back at the car park, still plenty of sand to brush up though.

  4. You are very lucky to be able to enjoy this gorgeous weather and the dogs look like they are having a great time!


  5. Very lucky indeed, sure beats working in an office:)

    Just back from walk on the beach.
