I found some old images of my work from 1975-1979.

I am playing with the small scale of these images, printing them to 10 cms x 5 cms.

There's a lovely shady path near home which borders a shallow stream.
The perfect place to take Budleigh to cool off.
He has been quite knocked out by the heat this week.

Fourteencols_dsc06691

In he went, rather nervously at first.

Fourteencols_dsc06679

This is unexpectedly nice.

Fourteencols_dsc06742

Look, Budleigh, a stone. Let's play.

Fourteencols_dsc06729

This has to be the best game, fetching stones from deep water.
We'll come paddling again soon.

Suddenly, we have a heatwave!
This is all new to Budleigh: days spent panting and squinting against the sunlight.

Fourteencols_dsc06636

Even under the twisted willow he lies drowsy and exhausted. No energy, even for his favourite games.

Fourteencols_p1000752

Everyone's in shorts and bare feet. Budleigh likes to use friendly feet as a pillow. Thank you, Hugh.

Fourteencols_p1000756

There's nothing to be done. He'll just have to sleep it off until the heatwave is over.

Happy Birthday, Budleigh.
You are two years old today!

Fourteencols_budleighdesktop_002

Look how tiny you were when we first met you, the smallest of four brothers.
We're so glad that you were the last one of the litter left with your mother.
Have a happy day - you always do!

We spent a family day on Durgan beach. Of course, Budleigh came too.
Toby has a new paddle board and everyone wants a go.

Fourteencols_dsc06428

The water's lovely. Come on in, Budleigh.

Fourteencols_dsc06445

Don't just bark at the waves.

Fourteencols_dsc06447

Do you feel safe enough to dip a paw?
Apparently not.

Fourteencols_dsc06466

Look, Budleigh! Other dogs are enjoying the sea. This little Jack Russell went right in and dragged a huge stone back up the beach.

Fourteencols_dsc06458

This is more like it. Tegen or Ysella may accidentally drop something delicious.

Fourteencols_dsc06464

Better luck here, perhaps? If Budleigh stares hard enough Jess may give in.

Fourteencols_dsc06484

What about his good pal Toby? Yes, at last, a morsel of flapjack to keep a body from starving entirely.

Fourteencols_dsc06469

Nothing on earth (or in the sea) would persuade him to jump from the rocks.

Fourteencols_dsc06452

This is the best place: sitting on a rock in the sun in perfect safety with his favourite person.
Happy holidays!
