Beddgelert

Quick blog today, got loads to do, Both shots taken at Beddgelert a beautiful little village in Snowdonia. The story goes……

“In the 13th century Llewelyn, prince of North Wales, had a palace at Beddgelert. One day he went hunting without Gelert, “The Faithful Hound”, who was unaccountably absent. On Llewelyn’s return the truant, stained and smeared with blood, joyfully sprang to meet his master. The prince alarmed hastened to find his son, and saw the infant’s cot empty, the bedclothes and floor covered with blood.

The frantic father plunged his sword into the hound’s side, thinking it had killed his heir. The dog’s dying yell was answered by a child’s cry. Llewelyn searched and discovered his boy unharmed, but near by lay the body of a mighty wolf which Gelert had slain.

The prince filled with remorse is said never to have smiled again. He buried Gelert here”.

    Ah poor stormy. Does her breed tend to suffer from hip problems? Or has she hurt herself ? It’s heartbreaking isn’t it seeing animals suffer…I’ve had two dogs that I’ve seen fall ill, one which we had to have put to sleep and the other which just faded away overnight. It’s awful..but anyway your Stormy is a different story no doubt she’ll be up and about tomorrow and getting into mischief ,won’t she ? A bit of TLC ‘n’ all that , which I’m sure she won’t be lacking.
