  1. It was lovely to meet you in person and your beautiful girl (who I still imagine being about 10!). Sounds like there are enough people up this way for us to have a proper Omlet meet next time you're up in Edinburgh!
  2. We've got mountains of dirty snow everywhere where the roads have been ploughed. Can't see them melting any time soon.
  3. Oh my word, how adorable ! Not sure what age they are allowed these, but I get bulls pizzles (euphemism for you know whats!) for Cassie and she loves them. I try not to think to much about what they actually are .
  4. I call this my Marge Simpson nest box!
  5. Hi, doing well thanks (although been stranded at home for 3 days!). That would be lovely, let me know when you'll be here. Can't believe Rosie is at Uni ! Oops, still getting to grips with this new format!
  6. Dogmother, I can concur with what Rosie says, it's blowing a hoolie here and snow is getting deeper by the hour. Sad to say my neighbourhood isn't what it used to be, we took Cassie for a walk this afternoon and came back to find our car had been vandalised.
  7. This is weird! I've not been on for over a year and haven't had a single notification during that time, until today! Nice to see some still familiar names .
  8. We had a pretty low key Christmas so it was fine! However, tomorrow we're going away to the Lakes for 5 days so we'll see how she copes with a holiday cottage - lots of new things to chew .
  9. Thanks, PM, it was very sad but inevitable at over 17 yrs old . Not sure if you've seen that we have a new pup who has been helping fill the Riley-shaped hole in our lives. She's got a lot to live up to though! *click*
  10. Haven't been on the forum much recently but got a notification so thought I'd pop in and say hi! Cassie is now 8 months old and is a lovely dog (apart from a bit of occasional growly snappy nonsense which we're working on ).
  11. Wilf is obsessed with the washing machine. He likes stealing underwear out of the drum whilst I'm unloading it and parades his treasures around the front garden Ditto to both .
  12. For those not on Facebook, I thought you might like to see Cassie's audition tape for under-housekeeper ... *click*
  13. Aww, congratulations, he's adorable! Such a cute little face . Love the name Goose! There's a collie near us called Stroma (always puts me in mind of a stoma but it's actually a small island off the North of Scotland, near where the puppy came from!)
  14. That's a good tip, I'll remember that! Glad to hear he's healing well . Give him a cuddle from me .
  15. Poor Wilf, he doesn't look happy (shouldn't laugh ).
  16. Don't know about you but I've always struggled with shower curtains growing that horrible pink mildew on them, which is impossible to remove. I recently found one on Amazon which purported to be mildew proof so thought I'd give it a go. I bought it at the end of July and there's no sign of any type of mould or mildew growing on it as yet. Can't quite remember how quickly it usually appears but that seems quite hopeful (3 very active adults - plus me! - in the house so lots of showers daily). They're half price at the moment so if you're interested, here's the link. There are 3 different sizes so be careful which one you choose. *click*
  17. Aw, poor Wilf . We've got that to look forward to with Cassie in a few weeks . Not looking forward to it. Don't know if it's worse for boys or girls?
  18. Lovely to hear how you're getting on, I too often think of you both . Sounds like a massive, scary/exciting adventure and I bet each and every day will be different .
  19. Had to Google that (I've a friend with Vizlas but not wirehaired) - they look gorgeous! Good luck with the new pup .
  20. That's good. I was quite surprised how good mine were when they'd been put right. Hopefully yours will be the same!
  21. It depends on the shape of your run whether this will work, but I've used corrugated plastic sheets on an eglu run before, very successfully. It doesn't flap (and thereby tear) like tarpaulin and it's easy to attach securely with bungee cords. You probably don't have a B&Q in the Alps but there must be an equivalent . I have a photo somewhere if you think it might work for you.
  22. What are you needing to weatherproof? Is it just the coop, what type is it?
  23. Fingers crossed for her (and you!). My YS has just started an MSc at Heriot Watt in Edinburgh but the modules he had chosen from the Student Guide (for this coming year) aren't available now so he was struggling to find anything to pick that wasn't marine, engineering or maths based (none of which are his areas of interest). He's going to withdraw from the Uni. I'm really cross with them, he wouldn't have applied if he'd know those modules weren't an option . He's going to apply to another uni which he'd considered in the first place (he picked Heriot Watt as it's supposed to be one of the "better" universities ).
