16 weeks on...

Hello Everyone!
Anyone else looking forward to Spring? We have had another sprinkling of snow lately and it's getting rather boring for our taste- we want flowers to tear up- erm I mean sniff and nice warm grass to roll in! Baird is now 16 weeks old, Mum had him weighed last week when he was 15 weeks and he came in at a whopping 30kg, such a chunky bum. 
He has been in a strict regime of fun, eating, fun, sleeping, training, fun and most importantly socialising. The Baird has been shopping, out for meals, meeting sheep, children and his fear- big lorries! He is doing well, Mum took him and me up the Lake District a few weekends ago, and I hate to admit it but he was very very well behaved.
It is a very big puddle Mum!
We went to an indoor visitor centre on the shore of Winderemere (Englands biggest lake!) then into a town called Ambleside for tea.

Baird met some children who he loved- me not so much, Mum is working on my fear of little ones! He did a very good job of not having a little wee inside either, Mum was worried because sometimes he 'can't-hold-it-in', sorry to embarrass you bro! hehe. 

Don't worry Mum bought us a round of yummy buttery toast for being such good boys in the Cafe, especially as it was so busy and crowed. As well as socialising Mum has been finding more of a challenge now with all four of us out on the walks, we are general well behaved but the first few weeks Baird has been out with us we have been pushing our boundaries to see what we can get away with now. But Mum soon got us all listening to her!

'Sit stays' and 'lie stays' courtesy of Mum...and a bag full of hot dogs! hehe. But don't you worry, we have been getting in the usual R&R as always.

We hope everyone is okay and are looking forward to the warmer weather as much we are.



  1. OMD OMD YOU get to use the KINDLE??? WE never get to use HER Kindle.

  2. That last picture is too cute!

  3. What a great visit to that VC! Hope you get some better weather soon.

  4. Hi everyone, it's raining and cool today. In fact it'll be raining off and on for the next five days. We're ready for drier weather and Spring too.

  5. I can not wait for spring enough! Poor Kirby can't wait either, since he has "hair" instead of fur he gets colder a lot more easier, he's ready for the snow to be gone!

  6. OMD!! You gots your very own KINDLE???! OMD!! I want one!!
    Oh, man you guys are so very lucky you gets to go to cafes!! No doggies allowed here...sniff, sniff.
    Baird is gettin' soooo big!! And, soooo cute!!

  7. :-D Oh man, you all are so incredibly well behaved!! Hehe, if there were four of me...well, you'd probably see us on the news even in the UK! ;-D Good job on all the puppy training stuffs, socializing is such a huge deal, so I am sure that Baird is well on his way to being the bestest of doggies!! Love the Lake District!!!

  8. Great group shots, guys. We especially love that last one - it would make a great header pic.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  9. Oh I just can't wait for Spring! I don't get to go to very meany eating places. Not to many around here that let dogs in. To that I say Ptfffff.

  10. We thought Baird was wearing a hat in the second picture... BOL!

    Great work, boys. Can't believe you could GO IN a cafe!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  11. We always pop by and fall in love with your pawsome pix. We have cold weather now and more to come. Unfortunately those coats maybe needed for another few weeks. We agree, hurry up Spring. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  12. Sorry forgot to say love your new layout.

  13. That last pix is so freakin' awesome!! Little Baird is starting to really grow up! I wish we could bring our pups inside to a cafe here!!! I have to tell you though that I have just absolutely fallen in love with Sampson!!! That is one of the cutest pups ever and it cracks me up every time I see Sampson sit with the other pups...he's just so huge but with the sweetest little face!!! Hugs!!

  14. OMD! OMD! Third picture to the last was beautiful!!! I would want one as my wallpaper!

    Baird sounds like he's getting along with the new socialization rituals. I'm sure Banana has contributed a lot to his good upbringing.

    By the way, how is Dante? How about Boo? Are they okay?

    Huggies and Cheese,


  15. That last picture is to die for!!!

  16. I love it up in the Lake District, we were there last year on holiday and are going up again this year for Christmas and New Year. That last picture is great.
