IT’S THAT SPOOKY TIME OF YEAR!

Well, we’ve arrived at that wet and windy time of year, and Skye Blue is very happy, both out and about paddling in the mud, and also in his cosy bed in front of the fire. It’s getting dark earlier every day, and I can’t believe we’re already nearly half way through October! Here at…

THE ARRIVAL OF AUTUMN

Autumn has arrived early in the Dales this year, and the arrival of September has brought much cooler days, lots of rain, and even our first frost. Skye Blue loves the cooler weather, and he seems to be like a puppy again! His favourite pastime at the moment is flushing all of the pheasants and…

And the winner is!

Our Celebrity Impersonations competition was so much fun! We had lots of wonderful entries, and had lots of laughs looking at them all! Author Lisa Mary London and Dolly-Dog were our special guest judges, and Obi’s fabulous impersonation of Ozzy Osborne was the winner. I’m sure you’ll all agree that the likeness is quite uncanny!!…

CELEBRITY FUN!

We’ve been having a lot of fun over on the Dudiedog Bandanas Facebook page this week with a Celebrity Impersonations contest, inspired by wee Dolly-Dog’s impersonations of  celebrities for the launch of her Mum’s new book, Reality Rehab! We’ve been trying to convince all of our Dudiedog friends that it’s a great idea to have…

HAPPY YORKSHIRE DAY!

It’s the 1st of August, and that means it’s Yorkshire Day apparently! There’s only one member of our family who’s Yorkshire born and bred, and that’s Skye Blue. We can only assume this because James found him wandering on Malham Moor as a 12/13 week old puppy, and it’s most likely that he was either…

WHEN SKYE BLUE MET ALFIE PUG!

At the weekend Skye Blue met Alfie Pug! Alfie was visiting The Yorkshire Dales with his family, and we arranged to meet up in the afternoon at our favourite cafe, Wharfe View Tearooms. This is a fabulous cafe in the very pretty village of Burnsall, and it’s run by two lovely ladies, Jennifer & Heather….

TIME FOR A GOOD READ!

We’ve been very excited for quite a while about the arrival of this book, Reality Rehab, by Lisa Mary London. The glamorous cover girl is one of our Dudie friends, Dolly-Dog, AKA Baby-Girl, looking fabulous in her Red Polka Dot Dudiedog bandana. The book is reputed to be hilarious, but I’ll have to wait until…

FRIDAY AGAIN!

Wow! Friday has  come around again, and this is a significant one, as it’s the start of the school holidays!6 (or is it 7??!!) whole weeks of Flo’s company!! We’re hoping to make it away at the end of August for a week or two, but as usual we have nothing planned, so I’m being…

Poppy Popularity!

We’re 10 days into the new website, and all is running smoothly. There’s been a clear bestselling bandana since the launch, and it’s the new Poppy dog bandana! I can’t say I’m surprised at the popularity of this design…the red poppies positively leap out from the black background of this lovely cotton, and it looks…

A NEW ERA

This is a big day for Dudiedog Bandanas….launch day for the lovely new website! So this is just a quick note to say Hi to you all! This old abandoned blog is going to be resumed, and will be a place where you can keep up to date with all of our latest news! It’s…

Easter in The Dales

Easter Saturday is a big day in the Hebden Calendar…the day of the annual Hebden duck race! The residents of our little Dales village congregate by Hebden Ghyll at 2pm for the big race! In the weeks running up to the race we can buy duck numbers at £1 each…each duck has a number.  There…

A New Competition is Launched!

On Monday we launched a brand new competition on our facebook page. I’d been trying to decide for a week or two what the theme would be this time, and in the end I decided on ‘Dudes in Disguise’. I think this is going to be great fun!  We have categories for dogs with bandanas…
