It's snow joke!

Some wintery pictures
Ruby has hurt her leg so she's been resting and not going out for walks in the snow. She's stayed at home firmly in the huff!!

Collars

Someone on the Vizslascotland forum recommended these collars that have 3 light settings. I got them from Pets at Home. I have to say, if you, like me haven't heard of them then they are BRILLIANT!!!!!!

I've tried different variations of these type of colars but I recommend these. Ruby is modelling.

Halloween Vizz Wizz


Today we went to meet up with some of our ginger friends from the Vizslascotland forum. (Mum says if anyone would like to join us on the forum you'd be most welcome. It's not just for Scottish people that's just where this particular group was formed so we could have some local vizz meet-ups. They love to chat about all things Viz. Vizslascotland welcomes members from everywhere).

A halloween wizz at the old Bangour Hospital site in West Lothian was arranged. Here's some snaps and happy halloween everyone.Add Image

What a great find this was. We had a great day and are a bit tired now.

Autumn colours

Mum & Dad took us for a last weekend in the caravan before winter. It actually snowed very lightly last night but we had our coats (phew!). Glad to get back home today though as it's getting very cold!We stayed in Blair Atholl just outside Pitlochry. The tree colours and leaves were beautiful and we fitted in perfectly. We had some great walks, and there was more than a few rabbits to point at and chase (but we didn't catch them).
This is a truly beautiful part of Scotland. The above image is of the 'Queens View'.
This and the one above this is on the river side walk alongside the caravan site.

Training = naps!

Thought i'd post a pic of Sophie. Mum disappeared this morning after our walk with Sophie and I stayed with dad. When she came back she smelled of other dogs, how dare she! Turns out she'd been to start her 'gold' training.... i'll let her off then. Anyway here's a pic of her after her training, the poor love, what a lightweight eh!
Guess I have to wait until she's recovered till she'll play with me. PS. mum says she did really well.

Bad Mum!

I used to get the vet to clip the dogs nails when they went for worming/weight etc then I thought i'll do it myself. It's been going well although Ruby hates it and squirms, and tries to hop round on one leg (dragging me with her). Sophie on the other hand is an absolute star. She stands like a statue, tries to lick you while you're clipping , doesn't even flinch.

Tonight, I did Sophie - no problem. Got two of Ruby's claws done and after the usual chase round the kitchen etc got another one, was about to clip, she moves, yelps...... OMG blood everywhere!!!!! I applied pressure and it eventually stopped bleeding. I've put a tiny bit of antiseptic cream on and she's now sporting a natty spongebob sock and wearing a scowl (directed at me ). I doubt she'll let me do it again, so it'll be back to the vets doing it from now on. Here's my poor doggie, feeling very sorry for herself, she wouldn't even look at me.

Wow it's been ages since we blogged on here! I just told mum to pull her finger out and get on with it :-)

We've not done that much really, our brother & sister are back to school after the summer break so it's back to just me & sophie hanging out during the day. The weathers been quite nice but we did have one day which was torrential and, can you believe it, mum dragged us out! We couldn't believe it. Anyway apart from that it's been vizslas as usual. Sophie is going back to her dog training in a few weeks to do her 'gold'.

Most days me and Sophie just like lying where the sun shines, I have to say I always muscle in first.

Seeing Red

Today Sophie & Ruby attended their first viz wizz which was organised by vizslascotland and held at Tentsmuir Forest near Leuchars. The weather was fantastic, blue sky and really warm.

It was a good turnout and great to put some names to faces from the forum (nice to meet you all guys). Ruby and Sophie, I think, were a bit overwhelmed by so many gingers but they had a great time and are now sleeping in the sun. Some absolutely gorgeous dogs and a cute wee puppy.. wonder what she made of it all.

Three dogs ?

Mum brought our 'grans' dog Molly to stay with us for a week. Molly is an 11yr old springer spaniel. The last time Molly came for the day I wasn't very nice to her and mum had a word in my ear. This time i've been ok. Molly is actually quite cool, very like Sophie as in she'll do what I say lol. No room for 2 top dogs in my house.

Here's a picture of us in the garden.

We've been out on lots of walks but not too far as Molly still runs about like a young dog but then gets very stiff if she goes too far. She's a bit barmy actually constantly has to look for an old plastic bottle to carry (what's that all about?). See she's got a purple one in this picture.
Mum says Molly is going home this week and it's been good for her to have dog company as her companion dog Meg who was 12, sadly died last year and since then she's been alone. Anyway, i've quite enjoyed her company but not sure mum has enjoyed walking 3 dogs, she seems to spend a lot of time tangled up in our leads.

Ladies and Longleat

Well we survived our long car journey to our holiday down near Dorset. We stayed at Longleat for a week and here we are in front of the beautiful house.We were allowed to walk round the grounds in the evening which was lovely. Mum, Dad and our bother went to see the other animals in the safari park but we didn't go. Mum says they were all beautiful and here's a snap.

Mum and our brother even visited Monkeyworld as mum is a big fan of the TV prog and the great work they do. Our brother has adopted an orangutan called 'Dinda' - she's ginger as well ha ha.



We then travelled up to Silverdale in Cumbria and had a relaxing week where we got lots of nice walks and trips at the beach. The weather was pretty rubbish but we still enjoyed ourselves. Happy to be home though, I still don't like long car travels and my dad is sick of picking ticks out of me, and mum is sick of me rolling in gunk!

then today mum surprised us with a bath cos apparently we stink!!! I luv the bath but Ruby isn't so keen.

Snoozing ...

This is something my 2 are extremely good at but I find myself laughing to myself (quite a lot actually) at the strange positions they get into.

This is Ruby - a perfectly normal sleeping position I think.
... and this is Sophie lol I think she thinks she's a 'dolphin'.

Grass mmm

I really don't know what mums problem is - we like eating grass, it's tasty and i'm going to eat it whenever I like! I know she's not keen when we spit it back up on to the carpet but hey... we're vizslas. Here's Ruby watching mum clean it up from a safe distance at the top of the stair ha ha.

Ruby wins the Jenga finals

It was a tense moment last night when I played in the final of the Jenga championships. It was touch and go for a while but I think I had the edge. I waited patiently and stared him out causing my opponent (my hooman bruv) to tip it. VIZSLA WINS!!!!!

Mum was off work today so we walked a different route this morning.
I think mum didn't want to go on our normal walk as Sophie is a birdcatcher. Yesterday Sophie came out a bush holding a bird but mum told her to 'leave' and 'here' and she did exactly that. I think mum was amazed and proud at the same time! I have to add that the bird flapped back into the hedge.

This morning's walk was quite uneventful in comparison. We just ran about like dafties as usual.

Killin

We're just back from a weekend at Killin. Lovely little caravan site with a great walk nearby taking in fields and skirting round the side of Loch Tay. We never met another sole on our walk so the dogs had a great time. Sophie was in and out of the water, mainly paddling but then she spotted some ducks and took off running through the shallow water to disappear up to her neck when she found the deep bit! Ruby didn't want to swim this weekend - not sure why.

This is Sophie (soaking) and Ruby (very dry)
