We're spending a few days up here in North Berwick and I thought as we hadn't posted anything in a while I would show you these Pics of Hobbes - now almost 14 months old - enjoying the beach here yesterday.

We briefly saw a couple of brown beardies tonight being walked down Beach Road but were unable to catch up with them from where we started. It would be nice to meet up with other beardies and their owners whilst we're here. Don't know if any are members of this forum Smile Smile We're here until Sunday, when alas we have to head on back down south.

Yes his coat has grown to almost full length. It's now going through a colour change and he is much more grey going on silver with some livery brown tints at the ends.... still a while before the colour finally settles though. I think it can take as much as two years for that to finish..... It's interesting to observe though.... Mum was a slate and dad a brown so who knows what the final colouring will be?

He's going through the "terrible two's" stage at the moment and ingnoring all his training, particularly the recall when there's someone or something more interesting to do/see.... And that is quite challenging when we're out and off the lead. Fortunately most of the dog owners and beach walkers a quite ok with him coming to say hello and play.... thankfully as I'm not as fleet of foot as I was when I wore younger mens clothes ....

I say...... that's a bit unfriendly for the a member of the friendly beardie club..... my gob is smacked Shocked Shocked Shocked LOL

In fact he (the boy Hobbes) was perfect tonight. We actually met two other beardies by the Golf club - Minky and Bruno.... both lovely browns.

Hobbes was delighted but was put in his place by Bruno who is a little more senior that Hobbes..... all good though.

Very Happy Very Happy

Yes I think in terms of height and weight he is probably full size now. His coat colouring is going through some changes and I think that may continue for some time yet but I think he is going to be a very light grey colour with some darker grey streaks and white patches around the face, neck chest and paws with some livery red / brown flecks colouring at the end of the white hair. But hey.... who really knows? We'll see what we'll see Very Happy

I love him to bits .... and some more. My heart bursts every day with the pleasure of seeing him so full of life and loving everyone and every thing in the world.

Okay enough of the soppy stuff.
