Poppy & Snowy

    I was lucky enough to join a group of close friends for an enjoyable walk around the beautiful Suffolk countryside at the weekend – taking in the picturesque village of Kersey. The walk was made perfect for me by the presence of 2 new friends for Rusty … Poppy, the Jack Russell Terrier […]

Spaniels at The Splash

Rusty and I were lucky enough to meet lots of dogs on Sunday on the Sudbury Water Meadows. It was a lovely afternoon and the dogs were intent on having fun – especially at the stretch of river near the Mill Hotel – which we call The Splash … There we met 2 water- loving […]

Labradors & Water …

My weekend visit to ‘All About Dogs’ in Ipswich was more ‘All About Weather’ than dogs….. I did get the chance to capture a lovely image of a Labrador Retriever doing what it loves doing best = Retrieving a ball, in the water !!     Handsome dog – totally focussed on the job in hand – […]

All About Dogs – Easter Weekend

I decided to take Rusty to a special Dog Event over the Easter Weekend at the Suffolk Showground in Ipswich. “All About Dogs” is a specialised event that takes place at numerous venues throughout the year and is dedicated, as the name suggests, to everything ‘Doggy’ … The Easter weather was unfortunately very chilly, windy and […]

Rusty’s Story continued …

I have to apologise for committing the “cardinal sin” of not blogging on a regular basis …!  Lots of things seem to have become really hectic all at once – and I have neglected my blogging duties whilst I have been juggling a fair number of tasks – including returning to my part-time bank work […]

Easter at Marlborough House

It’s been such a beautiful day today and so I decided to get out into the garden to enjoy the sun whilst it lasted … One of the things that I wanted to achieve was to take some Easter Chick photographs. The area by my pond in the front garden is south-facing and I still have […]

Noodle the Doodle …

It was a bright but cold day today – and I decided to take Rusty to Roman Fields – which is a very popular location for dog walkers in Colchester. Everyone is very friendly there and the dogs can really enjoy themselves chasing each other around on a wonderful expanse of meadow which was once […]

Ready to Run …

    It was a beautiful afternoon yesterday on the water meadows in Sudbury – cold but bright – and perfect for me to capture some action shots of Rusty Dog. I particularly wanted to take some images with Rusty ‘poised for action’, because he strikes some excellent poses when he is waiting for his […]

Coco – or is it Cocoa ?

Rusty and I met a new friend on the water meadows in Sudbury yesterday afternoon – a huge bundle of shaggy fur, called Coco. She is a cross between an Old English Sheepdog and an Alsatian and has the most gorgeous grey coat tinged with shades of brown. Friendly, yet mischievous, Coco made off with […]

The Power of “Dog”

  Do you ever feel like you have lost all  your positive energy ?   That’s how I felt this morning … This is a bad feeling to have on a Wednesday morning – as I now have 2 days off to spend being creative and having fun with Rusty – so I should be […]
