Well that was a quick year!

I can't believe where the time has gone, it has been over 3 months since I last posted and now the new year is upon us and we can look forward to the slow crawl towards Summer. I really do hate the Winter nights.

I'm not sure where to start in order to cover all that has happened in the last 3 months so I will keep it brief and mostly update with some photos, as they speak louder than words.

What I will say is that my move here to Innerleithen has definitely been the best decision I have made in a very long time.

Bodhi has settled well into my life and he keeps me amused every single day with his antics. He is such a loving dog and will try his very best to please you at all times. His training continues though, as he still is not trusted off the lead. His nose and ears can seek out any living creature at 100 paces and would disappear into the forrest at the first whiff of a squirrel or mouse. I am currently working on his recall with a whistle and voice commands and it seems to be working.

In order that he can run fast and be "more dog" he is running along side me in his trail harness when I go jogging, although his looks of disgust at my slow pace can be a tad disheartening.

His trail doggyness does not end there though, just recently he has been with me on my bike. His pulling power for a relatively small dog is immense. The hope is that he will learn to run next to the bikes on the trails eventually, but in the mean time he makes a great training aid both on foot and on the bike.

First day of trail dog training.

Bodhi is not the only special boy in my life these days though, call it fate but like Bodhi I have met my forever match. Nuff said, I'm happy and that's good in my book. :-)

Ok now some photos, hopefully some exciting plans for this year so will continue with my ramblings throughout 2015.

Christmas day selfies.

Happy beaches.

I'm so handsome.

A very wet new years day walk in the Pentlands.

So, so tired!

Will never tire of this view.

Do I have to Mummy?

Where to?

No more selfies, I smell rabbits.

Snowy bike days.
