Sketching William sketches of a scruffy hound - and sometimes I add a little orange terror called Hamish

The sketches....... often a quick pen outline ~ sometimes a photo and work from that.

I draw what he gets up to, no matter how the finished drawing looks. I hope you enjoy seeing them......ann

The holdall

A while back we found a random holdall,
I'm sure William thought it was another dog 
playing tricks on him...

In fact there is a story to this...if you have time to stop and read...

We were on one of the usual walks and found a holdall, left abandoned it would seem.  Thankfully, there was a camper van couple on holiday nearby, who told us that a camera crew had been there filming about an hour before.   Sure enough the holdall contained lenses, cameras etc.

About twenty minutes later a van turned up with two very worried looking guys, sure enough it was theirs.  They explained they had been filming, off loaded the van but had forgotten to put the holdall back in their van!!!!      Their relief that the holdall was safe and hadn't been stolen was obvious, the next days filming would have been ruined.    They actually wanted to pay us for finding it - no way, but we did accept a nice bottle of red wine - cheers guys.   

(Think I would have been worried if I'd lost a holdall containing £15,000 - [$23,400] worth of equipment too - wouldn't you)!!!


  1. They were very lucky you guys found it... xx

  2. They were very lucky indeed for it still to be where they left it! I hope William had a treat for standing guard over it :-)

  3. This restores my faith in humans! (Not you, I knew you'd be honest about it!!! LOL)

  4. Thanks JJ, Eileen and Robin....we were relieved they came back for it...and we made sure they were the right owners, only the right people would have known what was in the bag.
