What to blog about?

The weather has been done to death! I've no knitting finished to show, I did bake muffins earlier but the are only a couple left as my hungry monkeys have partaken of one or two!
So I thought, dogs! I've been asked about my dogs in the comments of posts at times so I thought I could go through them.
Don't panic I'm not going to go through all of them today, you'd be here all night reading!
I'm going to start with the eldest and work my way down.
So here's Medina
She's a Saluki X Jack Russell. The Mum was the Jack Russell and she had six puppies. Doesn't bear thinking about!!
She's going to be twelve on 24th May this year (yes, we do celebrate all our dogs birthdays! )
She's called Medina (Meddy for short) as Salukis originate from Saudi Arabia and when we brought her home we looked at a map to find a place in Saudi that we could use for her name and we all agreed on this one. Meddy was mine and Malcs fifth dog (the others have passed on)
After having Callum we got to about 2 years with no sign of any more babies so we decided to add to the dogs instead! We'd only had her about two weeks when we found out I was expecting Clark! Funny how things work out!
Meddy sleeps for much of the day, she tucks herself away under the dining table away from all the mayhem that ensues in the middle of the room. She still enjoys her walks and can keep up with the youngsters, even managing to chase the odd squirrel !
Although when she tries to get up after sleeping she does get a bit stiff!
Find out more about the next dog, Tula, next time I haven't got much to blog about!

  1. Pretty girl, I had several dogs for many years, I have been down to just Ben since Bertie the Bichon went. I keep saying that he is my last but who knows what the future holds. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your dogs.

    1. We keep saying no more, I'm just too soft, I keep being offered them. If we win the lottery I would have a big kennel block attached to the house and have loads of them.

    1. Thanks Amanda, she's so sweet tempered and was so good with the children when they were babies. She gets ignored now as the pups are so "in your face" You have to seek her out to give her a cuddle

  7. Awww, she's beautiful. I didn't know what a Saluki was so I've googled it, she looks as though she's got the tail. I like how you chose her name. I've been looking forward to hearing more about your dogs.
