This is Tess (the puppy) and Tommy.
Check out Rob's blog, A GARDENER'S DIARY (don't worry it's not all about gardening) to see loads more photo's of these two. Also, you must go visit TIPPY THE WONDERDOG (it appears all Rob's dogs' names begin with "t") which is "in memory of (Rob's) beloved Border Collie Tippy who died on July 28th 2010."
For a man who works on a country estate in Derbyshire, Rob is incredibly soppy about dogs. Which is just fine with us.
As I always get grief off the cat lovers when I show any bias towards dogs I will also highlight the high quality blogging antics of a cat called SAMSON. He is a very handsome Norwegian Blue/Persian cross and, as you can see from this photo, he knows it.
