Eddie the Babe Magnet

Some dogs steal your socks, while others steal your heart. Eddie (or Edward Woodward as I call him), does both!

You know how you see some dogs and just instantly fall in love with them? Eddie is one such dog. The pictures don't do him justice but he is a lovely honey coloured puppy, has crimped-looking hair on his head, ears to die for, and seriously, the most cute paws you will ever see on a dog. And to top it off, he spends as much time as possible pottering around on his back legs as though he thinks he is human.

I've just had the pleasure of boarding Eddie for a sixteen night stay. It's funny, when I walk my own dog, Ellie, nobody even seems to notice me with my plain mostly black dog walking dutifully beside me. But when they see Eddie enthusiastically thrusting forward, oh yes, then they want to know me!

Now, I know I know, the picture to the left looks a little, how can I say, rude? But that's Eddie - happy to parade himself around for all to see. In fact, he seems quite proud of his equipment! And come on, it's a funny picture!

In other news, not that I dare to imagine your lives are affected by whether I post to this blog or not, but I do feel a little guilty for not posting as frequently of late. All I can say in my defence is that the summer months are always my most busy and so the blog sometimes has to take a back seat. Please be assured that it will never be deserted.

Oh yes, my own dog, Ellie... She's doing fine and has been enjoying the summer walks, though I've also been trekking around the Peak District without her. Much to her dismay, I'm sure.

P.S. I see from the dog blogs that I follow, I'm not the only one who hasn't posted much lately. That's dogs for you - all the best shows and events are in the Summer.
