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….

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…

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…

Beginnings

Hi and Welcome to all Dudes!! This is a historical moment in the life of Dudiedog bandanas… the very first post of our blog! I hope this is going to be a fun and informative page, keeping you all up to date with what we are doing. We’ll show you new designs as we make…
