Saturday Steps With Annie

This Saturday Annie is joining me and Tess.
I met Annie's Mom at Crufts she has her own blog, I'll give you the link later.

"Ok Annie its over to you"

"My name is Annie and I'm what my Mum calls a rescue dog. I was looking for a forever home and my Mum found me on the internet. It's coming up to my 5th gotcha day in a few weeks time.
My Mum doesn't know what happened to me in my first year of life and I'd rather forget. The rescue said I was underweight and in need of some tender loving care which my folks give me in oodles :-)
I was being fostered in Essex and Mum calls me her Essex gal. So I travelled a long way to my new home by the seaside. I love ice cream by the way :-) I live in Kinmel Bay which is near Rhyl on the north Wales coast.
So what am I? Well, I am a whippet x terrier so I am a Whirrier if I want to be posh. The rescue called me a lurcherette and I am so like my cousin Eric who is a lurcher but twice as big as me :-)
The rescue called me orphan Annie and Mum kept my name Annie because she says it suits me.

In my photo I am on the steps to the beach in Rhyl. My beach in Kinmel Bay hasn't got any steps and is a bit too pebbly so we often come into Rhyl so that I can run on the beach and boy I do love to run.
My Mum found your blog because she grew up with Welsh terriers and has a soft spot for them. My Mum and Dad have always had rescue dogs and boy am I glad that they found me...
just like my Mum is glad she found your blog so she can admire you two as often as she likes :-)"

"Thanks Annie, I know we are going to set up a play date in the Summer, looking forward to meeting you in the furs"


If you would like to join me on Saturday Steps just send in a photo of you on some steps, and a little about yourself email to
I'll send an email back letting you know which Saturday you will be here

You guys are just so cute! I love coming to this blog. And now it's so nice of you to introduce us to Annie! Hope you have a fun get together this summer. I'd like to travel to North Wales, that's for sure, and to see Annie would be a bonus!

I didn't know you had achieved sainthood, George. But good for you, and go slay that dragon!

Hi George,

Wow, what an honour to be a guest on your blog. Can't wait to meet you in the furs.
Please do be careful slaying the Dragon, I think they breathe fire and I don't want you to get burned :-)
Will pop back to make sure you two are OK.
See you soon love Annie and Eileen xx

Howdy George and Tess, thanks for sharing Annie with us. She sounds like a great girl. St George's Day? We will definitely be back to hear about that. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Hello you two!
After a long time I'm traveling today on other blogs. You two are a gorgeous couple.
I've missed your beautiful pictures.
Mama says, but we will not write more regularly in other blogs. She does not make want to use my blog as a diary only. She is 8 hours away from home and wants to use their time more for me and Gianni. But every now and then we continue to come over. Promised.
Lots of Love

Isn't it so nice to meet new friends!! Happy Sunday to you!

Elaine Pritchard said...

Loved seeing Annie on her seaside steps.

I already follow her blog and it's GREAT for anyone who's not been there yet.

I like the name Lucherette - sounds like a 1950s girl group.

Slay the Dragon George. Can't wait to see what you do on 23rd.
