On tour with Smudge and Ella…

This weekend John and I headed down to Stoke-on-Trent to visit with family and took the lovely Ella and Smudge with us. They were perfect angels throughout the drive and when meeting all the family members including their two dogs Poppy and Mabel. The were just fantastic companions on the trip and we had the best time ever together! Everybody loved them and compliments were showered down on them about how sweet, calm and well-behaved they were. Smudge and Ella are quite literally, little stars!

Ella all snuggled up on their bed and secured in to the doggie seat belts, safety first!

Happy-Doggie-Holidays….

We had a spectacular Scottish holiday this summer, made all the better by the fact that the stunning cottage we rented allowed us to take our dogs. Four dogs in total joined us at Granton-On-Spey for a week of walking, fishing, swimming, kayaking, snuggling up by the fire and general merriment. It would not have been the same without them. The property boasted a huge enclosed garden which meant that the dogs could wander freely. Of course a dog is happiest when they can simply be with their person/people 24/7, and so Molly, Gus, Tia and Lucie were as content as they could possibly be.
