One of the great pleasures of being a gun dog owner and photographer is when I get a chance to meet and photograph other dogs and their devoted owners. Even on holiday, Gilly and I take the opportunity to meet and enjoy the company of these wonderful people.
So it was when we rented a house in Mevagissey and took all three of our monsters down there. We had stopped off at Weston Super Mare on the way to have a walk with the wonderful Maisie Barns, Jan and family. A few days later we were at a more organised Whizz at Perranporth with Wendy, Debby, Bev, Karren and several others, and on a rather dreary final day we met up, quite by chance, with Griff (the wonderful sibling of Mutley owned by Janet, a past client) and a great little hairy monster, Alfie.
But of course, the real reason for a holiday is to get away with our three, Blue, Rusty and Rugger, to enjoy the beaches, pubs and relaxation that a break in such a picturesque place offers. We visited a few favourite beaches like Vault beach, Gorran Haven and Caerhays Castle beach. The dogs went mad and we enjoyed every day be it sunny, windswept or raining.
