Hi, I’m Radley a Cesky (Czech) Terrier. I live with my hooman family in Hertfordshire but spend a lot of time exploring the Peak District too. I also have a big sister called Heidi who’s a Schnauzer. Oh, and I nearly forgot about Oscar, the grumpy old cat that lives with us too. He’s not much fun because he doesn’t want to play with me, I don’t know why.
Not many people have heard of a Cesky so here’s a little bit of information. The first Cesky Terrier was bred in 1948 by a Czech man called Frantisek Horak who crossed a Scottish Terrier with a Sealyham Terrier. If you want to find more about me and my ancestors click here Cesky Terrier Club
This is a picture of Heidi and me – I’m the little one, but I have very big character.
I’m going to let you know about some of my exploits in my blog. I hope you enjoy reading them.
Last Saturday I was invited to go to Discover Dogs with some of my relatives (my dad – Wally, sister – Coco and half sister – Portia) and some other Ceskys to be on the Cesky stand. We had to go to a big scary place called The ExCel in London. When I got out the car this big thing flew over my head, it wasn’t a bird – I like to chase them – Mum said it was an aeroplane because we were near something called City Airport. All I know was it was very noisy and I didn’t like it.
I spent all day being stroked and having my ears rubbed, it was lovely. My Mum chatted to all the other hoomans because they kept asking questions about me and the other dogs. I think my Mum loved talking about me and she was very proud when people said how much they liked me. I was a really good boy but was exhausted by the end of the day and slept all the way home. Although when I got home I still had energy to play with Heidi whilst Mum was trying to relax in front of the TV. I was told I was a natural and may go to Discover Dogs at Crufts next year too.

At the moment we are in the Peak District so when I return I will let you know what I’ve been up to. I hope you’ve enjoyed my first blog and come back for my second soon.
