Holiday Outings

Well it has been a while since I last posted as my peeps have been pretty low with bad coughs and colds :( They wanted to go to lots of nice places as it was Judith's holiday from work so they did try to get out anyway when the weather was good. Sometimes though they went without us doggies! So many fun places will not let us in but here are some photos from the last couple of weeks.


                          Not our dinner :-( but a rabbit in the bird garden at Harewood House.


                                                A heron looking for fish in the stream.


                             Flamingoes snoozing with a heron preening in the background.

             One day Trilby and Crybbe went along for a stroll in the grounds at Harewood too :-)


                                           Can you see them peeping through the barrier?


                                                      They had a good view from up there :)


                                                        Here is Trilby posing by the flowers.

                                                                          And Crybbe.

Judith and Leigh visited the Yorkshire Wildlife Park too where they are trying to conserve some of the endangered animals whose habitat is being destroyed or who are being killed by poachers and hunters.


                                                                       A brown lemur


            And an Amur leopard - there are very few of these beautiful animals left in the world :(


                                                                     And a Siberian tiger.

On another day they visited Chatsworth House where we might go for a trip one day. Judith and Leigh looked round the house and gardens and found some lovely dog sculptures there:




Well that is my catch up post and I will try to post more before too long! And before I go just to tell you that Raven went to his very first ever show a week ago - Driffield Championship Show and got second place in the Puppy Dog Class so he has qualified for Crufts. We are very proud of him :-)


        He would not pose for the camera looking smart so here he is looking not so spruced up :-)







  1. Sorry the peeps have been a bit poorly. But glad you got some time out. Love the pictures.

  2. Glad your peeps had some nice days out, hope they are feeling well now.
    I love the sculptures, I am rather fond of hounds.
    Well done Raven :-)

  3. Happy belated Birthday, Leigh! Outing on your birthday looks awesome! Speaking of that, this recent trip was also a fantastic one! There are so many beautiful places in your country. We'd love to visit one day!
