  1. Oh dear, Momma started to read that post to Honey and got too sad to keep going, but it was a really nice thing for you two to post.

    You're easy to spot in the "tall" grass, huh?

  2. Oh Guinnes - you have such poise and grace, lovely photos. By the way - your question about the beach huts all lined up - this is a very British seaside thing! They get used for fishing a tiny bit in the winter, but the main use of these beach huts is for the summer. Families pay ground rent and you will see lines and lines of huts, their doors open, deck chairs and children's toys in the front and whole families from grandparents to grandkids spending the whole day at their hut! Some huts get decorated really fancy - there'll have a kitchen area and a lounge area and if the owners have a source of energy then kettles will be boiling, tvs will be blaring, kids will be screaming and grown ups will be arguing - he he he! Some beach huts have been known to fetch over 100K - not on our beachfront though! We'll ask our humans to get some photos of this when it gets a bit busier - it really is quite a sight!

  5. How about a few vital statistics here:

    How tall are the boys, from toes to withers?

    How much do they weigh?

    They make a majestic picture, either one of them!

  6. LOL---without exaggeration
    Saige is 36 inches from toe to withers, she is 174 to 176 pounds. her chest is extremely deep, i must measure it. we can not find historical record of a bigger female irish wolfhound, not to say that there isn't one.
    Guinness is 34 inches from toes to withers, and 151-155 pounds. An average size male.
