Hello everyone, it's Barnaby here!


Sorry I haven’t written for a while but, between one thing and another, I don’t know where the time has gone, what with a few visits to the holiday home, Jon always seems to have a lot to do and I have had a cough which landed me up in the vets. Ugh, he gave me some cough mixture and that did not taste too bad but dash it all, puppy dogs tails, he said I was too fat and had to go on a diet.

I believe Biskit said a couple of you guys were on one. Cut down on the food and my carrots.  Aww, that’s awful, I love my carrots.

Jon has been painting again. He will not stop until it’s finished - last time it was white, this time it is a green colour, I think.

Sorry to hear about Mimi and Martha - how sad. I’ll say a doggy prayer for them, Penny. I expect they have gone over Rainbow Bridge now so they will be alright.

All for now.


Lots of puggy barks, Barnaby

They had such a happy, loving time with you and enjoyed all the care you were able to give to them.

Sweet dreams Mimi and Martha.

Good afternoon everyone,


Macduff and Eilidh have just come in from a spot of landscaping and are having 40 winks, so I have taken the chance to grab the computer and write to you all.

I had a wonderful Gotcha Day, as you will see from my thank you message on my ‘Gotcha’ message page.

Oh yes, Oliver, Mum tells me there are four holes dug in the garden already and you can honestly say that a little bird told you! We had a slight covering of snow one morning (Mum can't remember which day) but it had all gone by tea time. Today is lovely, sunny and very mild. Macduff says stick to your guns about the coat wee man.

Tell your Mummy, Biskit, that from the end of this month we are going to buy some plants every payday, so the garden should soon be looking great.


Tweets and whistles to you all, with big wolf whistles for all the Mummies XXXXXXXXXXXX

Greetings one and all,


That's good you have a garden now, Eilidh and MacDuff - lots of scope for digging now, especially when Mum has just put some plants in. You definitely need to check that she has planted them properly. How about all those dogs in your part of the street - wow! Lots to greet and have a sniff with each day. Your move sounded like a tough time - no water and no heat, Mum is shivering at the thought of it.

We thought we were going to have snow on Sunday so we were watching out of the conservatory doors thinking it's going to be great for a roll and then it all went away. Anyway, Mum thought of a pretty decent walk for us as she wasn't too happy about walking in the really strong wind. She took us to one of the really old lanes in Honiton (very few left now) and we had a lovely sheltered walk as it winds up towards the old church and has high banks on either side, so lots and lots to sniff and check out - no cars use it, just the odd tractor. We didn't get as far as the church as the lane suddenly runs out as a housing estate has been built lower down and the footpath splits in two - one up to the church and the other across the fields. Mum said it was just a bit too muddy at the moment. She will take some photos when all the Spring flowers are out on the banks.

We're still waiting for our walk today as it is pouring with rain and I hate getting wet and I won't wear a jacket - so there!


Barks to all from Oliver and xx from Heather

Dad's gone shopping so Mum thought, ah peace, we can write to the Newshounds.

Well, congratulations, Eilidh and all, on the move. I am so glad you are all OK now. What an awful time you must have had with the water and no heating. At least you've got moved and can take your time settling in. Eilidh, tell your Mum from my Mum that the garden will look lovely in summer.

Hallo MacDuff - no, that is my fox. Mum said Santa brought it at Christmas. Never mind, I told her she could have a cuddle because she hasn’t seen her red fox again.

Oliver, I do like your new bed - it looks smashing.

Don’t the boys in the 'Antics' seem to be enjoying themselves swimming and diving?


Love Biskit and kisses for all Mummies xx

Subject: Well, we did it!


Hello everybody, Eilidh here!


Well, we moved last Friday. Poor Mum was almost tearing her hair out. So much work to do in 2 days, but we now have a GARDEN - YIPPEE! We love it. I don't think Mum realized how big it was. We are still finding our way around - lots of lovely new smells, lots of new dogs to meet and we have found some molehills. Very interesting smell and just right for digging in! Macduff was in the dog house on Saturday. I was busy sniffing something very smelly on the pavement and Mum was telling me to `LEAVE IT` in a very firm voice. Then she turned around and Macduff had found a dead fox lying on the grass verge. I couldn't possibly repeat what Mum said!

There are lots of doggies in our bit of the street. We have a King Charles Spaniel next door, 5 Dachshunds further up (3 belong to the lady and the other 2 are foster babies), straight across the road we have a Goldendoodle, next to him 3 Staffies and further up a lovely Border Collie. We came home from our morning walk on Monday and when Mum looked out into the garden there was a pheasant running around. I wanted to go out and see her but Mum said it would scare her away, so we just watched from the window.

We had a bit of a disaster when we moved in. On Thursday the carpet man lifted the carpets in Rosewell and re-laid them in the new house. The removal men came on Friday and they loaded up and went on ahead of us. They phoned Mum to say that the radiator in the hall was leaking. We suspect that someone banged the radiator by mistake but, obviously, nobody is going to own up. By 5 p.m. we had no heating or hot water. Of course, the Housing Association closes at 4 on Friday. Then we couldn't find Mum's mobile phone - no landline either. Dad found her mobile in the car, thank goodness. Emergency repairs department said someone would be here before 8 p.m. on Monday. Dad lent us an electric fire which was better than nothing. Monday came - we waited until 7 p.m. and phoned - they would check and phone back. Mum phoned again at 8 p.m. - sorry, they would have to phone back. Of course, they didn't. Tuesday morning Mum phoned the Housing Association at 9 a.m. and the plumber was here by 11, so we are all nice and toastie now.


Anyway, regards to all, sending love and kisses to all furries and love and XXXXXXXXXXXX to the Mummies and Daddies

Hello all, Macduff here!


We love your fox, Biskit. What is his name? We haven't had a lot of rain here thank goodness. It has been cold and frosty - great for country rambles. What a nuisance, all that upset and mess. Hope your Mum's poorly toe is getting better and that Dad didn't say too many bad words! Bet you are looking very handsome after your fur cut. Loved the photo - that is my favourite sleeping position but in the armchair!

Heather - hope you and Oliver are well. Kisses to your Mum.

We may be off the site for a wee while. We are moving house on Friday. Eilidh and I are so looking forward to it because we are going to a cottage with our own back garden. There is a garden here but it is communal. We are on the main road and there is no gate, so it'll be lovely to wander in and out at will.

Speaking of Mummies and Daddies saying bad words, I'm so glad nobody heard our Mum at the weekend. It took her 3 days to cancel the phone and broadband - she decided that moving was a good time to switch. Apparently they were asking her really stupid questions. She kept muttering to the tablet. It went something like, "Would they like to know the colour of my knickers, what I had for dinner, oh, and maybe when I last went  to the loo?" Anyway, all sorted now.

We will send some pictures of the new house when we move in.


Love and kisses to you all, especially the Mummies and Daddies XXXXXXXXXXXX
