SLEEP TIGHT ANIARA and NOME

We so want them to be immortal, but sadly it doesn't happen, and before we know it, the years have flown by. Saying goodbye to two huge personalities in our lives, so special, and so special to all who met them, Aust Ch. Amhurst Prinsessan Aniara on 25th October and her sire, Aust Ch. Copper's Prins Trollmane (Imp Sweden) on 25th November. We three had so many wonderful times over the twelve and thirteen and a half years. Bless you both. No more Nomie hugs, and you hadn't been hugged until…

So grateful thanks to our trusty and very talented photographer, Willem Heyneker, who very kindly, happily arrives anything like 4.30 in the morning!! Let the show begin!…

FOUR WEEKS OLD TODAY AND WHAT AN ANGEL

I have called Ballad's baby girl, JURNI, because it has been a long one to get her!!

At four weeks already, she is now starting to meet the older Irish, and they are all very gentle and caring towards her. Aniara, in particular, is smitten with Jurni - maybe because she well remembers that over ten years ago, she too was an only puppy for Bria.  We have a very happy family of Irish here at Amhurst. They all love each other and it is good for the soul to enjoy them all.…

EARLY MORNING ON A BEAUTIFUL PERTH BEACH



With Claire from England, we set off very early one morning, with Lupin, Aniara, Gillou and Finoo, to have some fun and enjoy a photo session.

Three took off down the beach,seemingly never to be seen again, but after about twenty minutes of calling, running and panicking, we saw them as mere specks coming back! Phew!

Let the photo shoot begin!…

IT SNOWS.....EVEN IN SUNNY WESTERN AUSTRALIA !!!!

I was greeted at 5 am with a "snowdrift" in the kitchen ! Don't you just love them when they do this!! Have to say though, it was not the Irish. Muddy, our Labrador, is thinking about going in to labour, so cannot really blame her even.

What a hoot!…
