Once again found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin and the need to pay for a licence. Abandoned that and the videos are now back up and running.

We've added an extra chart showing Louis' weight against how many weeks old; makes it easier to read and compare.

Some interesting Linnaean dog terminology.

We’re not going to get our annual piccie of Sid drinking Guinness whilst his family is on their annual Xmas holiday excursion to Adelaide. The reason for this is that Sid, Sue and Amaya are over here for Christmas. They bought Louis a present, a great tug toy. Amaya then did a drawing of Louis playing with his toy; here it is:-


It’s accurate; Louis has been helping with Christmas leftovers and, like all of us, has put a few pounds on.

Lager, lager, lager

Sid has sent in his annual photo of him enjoying a small beer whilst he was on his holiday in Adelaide with Sue and Amaya.

As you’ll see he’s off the Guinness again but he’s followed the “size matters” tenet.

Time Marches On…

Another year has gone by; this is marked by the annual photo of Sid on his Christmas holiday. Usually it’s a Guinness in his hands but this year it’s a huge glass of Dab lager. Sid et al will be over in the UK soon; I hope he remembers his wallet this time.

Sid & his love of the German purity laws

You can tell Sid is an English tea drinker; check out his little finger; an Englishman’s finger must always be below the handle.

Look in the background and you can see a very grinny Amaya. Plus you can see Pete is ageing well compared to Sid!

News from Melbourne

Well the snow and ice have almost disappeared and we’re getting back to normal.

It’s that time of year when Sid reminds us that the seasons are six months apart between us and Australia and he’s sent us some pictures of their recent holiday in Adelaide. (Actually I’m telling a lie, Sid got Sue to send the pics as he can’t handle the technology without losing his rag.)

Here’s a couple of nice pics; the first one is Amaya and the sunset.

Guess who got a new camera to play with?

The second marks the passage of another year as we have captured Sid with his Xmas Guinness.

Sid and his Guinness

Sid and his Guinness; note the position of his little finger.

You can see via these; Guinnessy Sid 2009 and Guinnessy Sid 2008 that this is a regular event.
