Molly 8 Weeks Old With Her English Springer Spaniel Mum, Holly.
Max - Labradoodle - Born 21st July 2014 Molly - Springerdoodle - Born 7th January 2012
Max’s mum and gran-mum are both chocolate coloured Labradoodles. His dad is a Standard Poodle. This makes Max a F3b type Labradoodle - third generation. F stands for Filial - (relating to or due from a son or daughter) 3 stands for generation, and b stands for back-crossing with one of the parent’s breed, in this case (and typically), the Standard Poodle. His coat is a wool coat which means he has tight thick curls; whilst Molly my Springerdoodle - English Springer Spaniel and Miniature Poodle hybrid - has a wavy fleececoat; which means her coat is wavy and is tightly curled only when wet. Molly’s coat is soft and silky, whilst Max’s coat is denser and coarser which makes it harder to clip and takes forever to dry - lol. Whilst Molly’s coat can air dry in the sun in half an hour on a walk, Max takes all day and night to fully air dry and therefore requires the help of a hairdryer. Finally, Max has an undercoat and Molly doesn’t.
The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.
The photographs on this page were taken using my Nikon Coolpix S7000. It’s ideal for popping into my pocket on my daily explorations with Molly and Maximilian.
Late Summer Berries
Forced Perspective - Below Two photographs I took; visibility and lighting were both perfect. The first one, of Molly & ball, lol, was taken without zoom - the second image was taken from the same position with 40X zoom and is what is known as 'Forced Perspective'. All the buildings look close together however, this is an illusion. There are several miles between them, three wide valley's and the River Tyne. The view is from Wallsend looking over to the flats in Hebburn and beyond.

Peter - 9th March 1950 to 9th February 2014
Chiquitita, you and I know. How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they’re leaving. You’ll be dancing once again and the pain will end, there will be no time for grieving. Chiquitita, you and I cry. But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you. Let me hear you sing once more like you did before, sing a new song Chiquitita. Try once more like you did before, sing a new song Chiquitita.
