Gracie and Wilson Stay for the Weekend


Last weekend was a Bank Holiday here in the UK and my daughter Gracie and her new little brother ( my grandson ) Wilson came to spend a few days with us while their peeps were abroad working. Sadly the weather has been very wet here so days out became very muddy!


This is poor Gracie up to her knees in mud at the Yorkshire Game Fair at Newby Hall. Pip and Wilson went too and rode some of the way in their carriage but when they got out for a walk they got very dirty :-(


           Poor Pip was not happy about the mud spoiling her nice designer harness 


She just wanted to be back in the carriage and go home. Leigh had to wrap her in her jacket and keep her snug and hidden until she could get home for a bath.

There were lots of interesting things to see at the Game Fair though like this kestrel waiting to show off his flying skills:


                                                    This Scottish bagpipe player:


                                               And lots of other dogs to meet and greet:


      And here are some more pictures of Gracie and Wilson back home again and clean :-)



It was fun to have relatives to stay and Trilby loved having her sister back for games in the garden. See you again soon Gracie and Wilson :-)


  1. Hey, mud is good! (In our opinion).

    Such a treat to see your relatives.

  2. Hi Magic,
    and your cute kids, Gracie and Wilson!
    I also often get dirty in my mud garden...
    Anyway it looks like you had a good time with lots of dog friends!

  3. You have so much fun with family and doggy friends.
    Shame about the rain and mud :-(

  4. I'm caught between loving mud and hating bath... Well, I'm sure Gracie has forgiven the mud for getting that harness dirty.
