Blue + Snow

As snow began to blanket the UK, Blue gets his first real taste of the white stuff.
He has various favourite observation points around the garden, where he’ll sit and watch the world go by. Sitting on his most favoured area of dead Summer undergrowth, he pensively observes the unfamiliar snowflakes falling around him – and on him.

Pint sized Blue

On his first outdoor adventure into the garden (24th Jan 09), you can see how small Blue is, as he seeks reassurance standing between my feet. At just 7 weeks & 3 days old , you can forgive his timidness, which didn’t last long. Now he doesn’t seem to be afraid of anything.. with the exception of a used plastic milk carton!
At routine visit to the vets 3 days after this photo was taken, he weighed in at a healthy 3Kgs.

Meet Blue

Firstly, when it comes to photography, any better than this is considered a miracle. Blue has a knack of moving very quickly whenever a lens is anywhere near him. For reference, this was his first foray into the outside world on 24th Jan 09. Initially he was very timid, now I believe he thinks he’s some sort of commando dog. He doesn’t avoid bushes, logs, flowers, hedges… he runs straight through ’em

Blue was originally dubbed ‘Happy’…

Happy was his birth name, a name given by his owners to easily distinguish pups in a litter. Why Happy?.. he was the first to wag his tale. This makes me smile, it reinforces the notion that we definitely ‘got the right one’.

To cut a long story short, an unexpectedly pregnant Beddlington Terrier X Beagle gave birth to five pups on 3rd December 2008. Dad was a wily 15 year old Tibetan Terrier, who obviously still had a bit of go left in him.

On the 8th Jan 2009 I went to collect Happy… we named him ‘Blue’.
