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…

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!!…

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…

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…

Time For More Lovely New Designs!

It’s been a really busy week here at Dudiedog. I started the week with a trip to my fabric wholesaler, as several of our most popular cotton prints were running low. As usual I managed to get sidetracked by some lovely cottons that had just arrived…some hand printed tie-dyes and batiks. I decided to add these…

The Prize

The postman comes late to this sleepy little Dales village.  It was nearly 2pm when our delivery arrived today, and in amongst all the mundane bills and circulars there was a rather  interesting looking packet. Skye Blue helped to open it, and inside was a beautiful rosette. It was Skye Blue’s prize for coming first…

St. Patricks Day

It was a cold start to the day, but the sun made an appearance for a while, and Skye Blue enjoyed his morning walk up the Ghyll. The new lambs were enjoying the little bit of warmth, and Skye Blue, as usual, was very keen to have a look at them! The first primroses are…

Where is Spring?!

It’s been a very dull and Murky day here in The Dales. Skye Blue and I went out for our usual early morning walk, and we could barely see the hills for the grey mist. We could hear the call of the curlew though…these fab birds are at last arriving back in the dale, and…

Mothers Day

It’s Mothers Day, and I have been greeted in bed this morning by Flo, bearing her DVD player (loaded with Waltons DVD!) and interesting, yet wierd breakfast of Maltesers, Smarties, Cadbury’s Mini Animal biscuits, and heart shaped cake decorations, as well as a cup of tea! What a lovely start to the day! I’ll be…
