Just had a look through the pictures, and boy, judging this is not going to be easy. Loads and loads of great photos.
I am snowed under with work problems at the moment so I won’t be around much this week but I will keep popping in to have a look on my iPhone.
Keep them coming :yes: ;D ;D
Strange thing is, Benson can swim. He dived into a river in full flood following Jago and had me thinking I may have to go in after him. But he managed to swim against the current to a spot where the bank was low and I helped him out.
Since the he has not had the courage to go back in. I think it may have scared him a bit. He was only about 5 months old at the time.
He’ll be swimming soon. I can see the way he is weighing up the water and his body language seems to say he is right on the edge of going,
Bet I haven’t got a camera with me when he does 😀 😀

What do the judges think of May 1st as the closing date? or would you like it sooner/later?
Fine with me also :agree: :agree: 🙂 🙂
What I would suggest id that we start a thread for each of the categories and peeps can add their photos to the relevant thread.
Any photos that have been added already could be moved to the relevant category thread.
It would make it a bit easier to judge each category and then a final overall winner who will win………….
Oh didn’t I mention that ;D ;D
To the overall winner goes a £40 donation to a doggy charity/rescue of the winners choice, courtesy of Steve Loveridge Photography.
Hope this is OK with everyone.
Get those shutters clicking 🙂 🙂
Looking forward to seeing all your photos.
The weather over the weekend was wonderful. I must admit that the spring is my favourite season of the year. I am not a great lover of hot weather so to have lovely sunshine all day in the spring without it getting too hot is my ideal.
The shot with the stream in it is the field where I do their gundog training. There is open ground, some cover and the water so is ideal for the training.
The last shot is where we take most of our regular walks and that is Poole Harbour in the background with Brownsea island being the largest of the two lumps on the horizon.
Spoilt really ’cause we don’t really appreciate what we have.
I’ve got loads of photos with that made eyed clumber look. 😀 😀
Great to see them all enjoying themselves.

hairy, drags on floor, picks up leaves shite sticks twigs…pain in butt
do you have that prob steve? cuberts tail carriage is so low…
Jago & Benson are docked so their tails don’t reach the ground but they are very furry. Jago is forever getting gorse twigs entangled in what I call his modesty curtain and his tail. It’s a job to untangle them >:D
A really hard decision to make but I am sure the right one.
My thoughts go out to you. And run free Nero.

thanks steve and kerry :-* i’m doing a national diploma in photography 🙂
is that a full time course? I’ve done City & Guilds up level 3 but fancy trying something else. Has to be part time though or find a benefactor to pay the mortgage 😀 😀 😀
Glad you all enjoyed the pictures.
Both Jago & Benson are from working stock (seeing as they’ve got the same parents that’s stating the obvious really :-[ ;D) and are bred, in general, to be a bit lighter boned than there show brothers & sisters.
Jago is quite a well built dog and was weighing in at 32kg before I put him on a bit of a diet. Not to lose weight but to tone him up and develop muscle.
Benson, at nine months, is a bit lighter boned than Jago and a bit longer in the body. His head is on the small side and his snout is a bit pointy. But I thought that of Jago when he was that age. Strange how their whole body shape can change within a month at that age and in two months time I may be thinking “his front legs are longer than his back legs and his head is to big”. In the end eerything usually balances out 🙂
i have been nursing a bad head all day today due to celebrating England’s trouncing of the French yesterday. Worth it though 😉 😀
There are some really good images there. Excellent.
