RIP Radio

I'm sorry we only met once Radio. You were an inspiration and patient mentor. Winning the scurry with ease. Enjoy creating havoc elsewhere now.

Frosty mornings

It's been pretty chilly recently but I don't mind if I have my pals to play with. This is me and China.

We raced around so much I was shattered by the time I got home!

Here I am with Barney the Giant Schnauzer and China. Barney is about 3 weeks older than me and we've grown up together. Despite both being 'entire' boys we're good pals. I like Barney's brother Monty a lot too - we play together most afternoons. Yesterday we went to the golf course and a golf ball landed about 50ft in front of me. I started to race after it but three pips on the whistle stopped me in my tracks and I zoomed back to mum in a very good impression of a well behaved dog. You see I CAN do it if I want to. I just don't want to that much!

Here I'm chasing Maudy the chocolate lab.

And this is me doing a bit of posing - got to keep up with Hamish on the posing stakes!

I think it's time to go home now. And sleep all day after all that fun.

Tattooing

Well it was 4:3 FOR tattooing. Close run thing. I was thinking about getting one but dad isn't keen - I thought it would suit the whole teenage monster thing I've got going. For now I will remain tattoo-less. I have a microchip which will have to do.

Vizlas can't climb rocks

Well I think Radio can, but he's a wonder dog. I can't and I got VERY frustrated at dad when he got on top of this cool rock!

A monster's life for me

Weight: 23.8kg (still about 1kg to go)
He's gorgeous's: Loads

Well I've been keeping up the monster behaviour quite well I guess. I've obviously been enough of a good boy to go on some pretty good walks recently. Mum has been studying hard so we've been going out at twilight which is a FAB time for chasing things. We go to the New Forest a lot. Mum says I'm a very lucky dog to get at least two walks per week in the forest. This is a pic of me next to some tracks of some very big monsters. You can tell they must be HUGE cos they have sunk in loads.

Then here I am auditioning for the Lord of the Rings - well, I suppose I'll have to settle for The Hobbit now. I'm somewhere in middle earth fighting orcses. I think I've fought off a couple of battalions in this pic.

No portfolio would be complete without the pose shot. Will you believe me if I say no photo trickery was used in this pic? It's just me and the sunset. I'm not sure what I'm doing with my back left leg - think I'm demonstrating the impressive amount of external rotation I can get out of my joint should there be any film-makers out there looking for suppleness.

I took some more time out posing in the rays of the setting sun.

And then the sun went down, but it didn't stop me chasing my stick.


When there's no more light left there's only one place to go - my folks' s favouritest pub in the whole world.

So now for my monsterness. We went on another viz whiz and I was looking for my pal Tuscan from the outset. I ran up to all the dogs and sniffed them before deciding that Alfie was the one for me. I then hassled him (well, I prefer the term nuzzled) the WHOLE WAY round. Mum got REALLY angry with me cos this is what I did on the last whiz but have never done since. Unfortunately I'm now banned from whizzes. Sorry folks. Had a great time and hope to see you again when I've grown out of it (forced to type that...gah).
