We have these two handsome boys staying with us for two weeks whilst their owners are off for a sunny family holidays in Cuba…to put them in kennels would have been silly expensive & we always say you can never have too many dogs lol. We had them two years ago, here’s the pictures of their 1st visit…Spud is the bigger one & at the time Beans was baby Beans…so cute (don’t ask me why they have the odd names…their family has two young kids so i guess they named them)

So two years on & they have changed no end…I was at work when hubby took delivery of them & he did his usual thing of not asking any details such as where do they like too sleep, when do they eat & how much walking do they need…most importantly he didn’t ask which ones which!!! Numpty, he is the same when we have his grand kids too stay although luckily I CAN tell them apart lol…these dogs do have collars & tags but its only their owners names & phone numbers on them so no clues there then doh!!!! As previously Baby Beans had been the darker coated of the two I’m assuming its still so & that he is the closer to the camera in this next photo…what do you think????

They are half brothers…same mums but different dads…Beans looks more if a traditional Border Terrier too me Spuds coat is quite curly, they are both due too be stripped & I dare say they will look even more alike when that’s been done. Our Border Izzy really didn’t like their previous visit so she has gone off to my daughter (&joint blogger) Little Lauries home for the duration…. She will no doubt be having a whale of a time & getting some serious spoiling. Archie our Patterdale Terrier has stayed home, all the boys together are having a great time…

The creek is tidal & was very full this morning, normally Archie has a swim but as it was chilly he thought better if it
