Spring Arrives in Lakeland

Spring, or was it summer, arrived in Lakeland at the end of March in the form of a heatwave! The clocks were put forward and we enjoyed some lovely, warm and sunny days ...

The days are getting warmer

The last remains of snow on the Lakeland mountains

The hedgerows are bursting with daffodils

The ponds have been ... busy!

Arctic Fox - happy in her work

Cafe Latte Girl ... fed up with waiting for her turn to work sheep

Handsome Lad in full concentration mode ... with a little help from his shadow

The Mad pup ... half-sister to Cafe Latte Girl & Aunty to Pocket Rocket

High Noon

Cafe Latte Girl and mate New Boy ... relaxing in the sunshine

New Boy in action

"Wait for me" ... Pocket Rocket

New Boy and Cafe Latte Girl's Search Puppy - with us for her hols

Womble Bum ... "throw the damn leaf"

Heavy in lamb

And the clouds return ...

  1. I just discovered the video "The Colle Walk" and I'm absolutely addicted to it. I had the joy of sharing my life with a border collie who came to me when she was 11. At that age she wore me out and for the life of me I could not fathom why anyone would deliberately get one of the dogs. By the time she died four years later I was a complete fan. I just am disheartened when I hear from Border Collie rescue people about the problems that have developed since the AKC "accepted" border collies and how the emphasis on looks is creating unsound dogs. Seeing your healthy classic borders being the exceptional beings they are just made my month.
