Sunday, January 6


the keen eyed amongst you may have noticed the rather dashing new badge on the side of my blog...

i came across it over on the beautiful blog *last day of may* who in turn found it at its original source on another beautiful blog *chi and fidel*.. 

the idea is to record a portrait... once a week.... every week in 2013

most folk are obviously choosing to record their children but as there is a distinct lack of little ones in this house of mine i have of course opted to record the hounds...
obviously i could not choose just one so am taking up the challenge of all six so here we go...

 sunday evening all warm and cosy 

"a portrait of my hounds... once a week... every week in 2013"



  1. Hello...They are all beautiful, each and every cosy one of them :-) am going to hop over and have a look now, I have no little ones either...but a few furry critters....happy cosy Sunday x

  2. And lovely they are! What a great idea!

  3. Hello! I really like your idea of sharing your beautiful dogs this way. I decided to join in and share photos of my sheltie, Toby, on my blog. Thanks for idea! :O)

    I really like your blog and admire what you're doing with animal rescue. I also love whippets (shhh...don't tell my sheltie though) and always enjoy seeing photos of them.

    Have a great week!

  4. oh tracy they are so beautiful! i really feel i can see each of their characters in the photos. such soulful eyes :) it will be great to have the photos all put together in a book at the end of the year don't you think? xx

  5. What a lovely idea, they are gorgeous. Xxx

  6. I found your blog through Sandra's. Your puppies have such sweet faces! I have a miniature poodle and she captured my heart. :-)

  7. They are gorgeous. My brother used to keep whippets, he had eight at one time. Hounds are so elegant.
