Welcome Louis!!

Happy Monday! (as they seem to love to say on the radio…) Aww come folks its not all that bad! At least it didn’t rain today :/ We were all prepared on this morning walks to get soaked by another mega downpour, but it never came! Still it was a thrill to see everyone in their matching jackets!

Today we had our last newbie start with us before we finally closed the books for new clientele. (Thats it we are full guys!)Β  I would like to introduce Louis! Louis is a Labradoodle who up close looks very like none other than our lovely Ella! But a boy, and bigger, and chocolate… πŸ˜‰ Louis did very well on his first day, we did some lead work then off-lead work where Louis could really show off his speed and his recall abilities! Happy first day Louis!

A sad goodbye…

Today was our last walk with the gorgeous Hamish. We made the most of it and had a wonderful time, lots of playingΒ  and even more cuddling!!Β  We will miss you terribly Hamish, we wish you and your Mum Francis all the best in your wonderful new home. We can’t wait to see the photos of you enjoying your walks with Natalie and her pack!

P1210019 P1210020

Love this photo!

P1210024 P1210026 P1210032 P1210033

Very last cuddles and kisses. Lots of love Hamish from myself and all your four-legged friends here at Four Seasons xxxxx

Second walk with the pack for Jess, and what a clever girl she is! Recall is perfect, and I mean absolutely perfect!Β  Sat in the back of the car with Winston like a pro and only needed a short amount of time spent on the ‘wait’ command when I open the boot before she understood she couldn’t not jump out with an invitation. Collies, just a joy to train!P1210043 P1210046

Playing tug-o-war with Maud is like wrestling with a bear, she is so strong!! Very clever Bullie though,she drops it on command with no fuss. Thats my girl… πŸ™‚

P1210047 P1210048 P1210050

Aww was a bit disappointed that this photo was blurry! We have half of the walk for toy time and half without for socializing time. This is Jess trying to entice Winston to play. He didn’t need too much encouragement haha!

P1210052

Jess this week, as predicted, was brave enough to follow Maud and Winston into the river for a paddle!

L.V. is still refusing to get her paws wet!

Just what I needed after having to say goodbye to Hamish, some squishy Maud kisses to cheer me up!

Thursday…

A quick catch up for the end of the week. It has been a busy one and boy are we tired! I have a very sleepy household here at the moment!

Hugo is a BIG fan of Winter swimming…hard core!

P1200987

The lovely L.V. is not as ‘ahem’, brave shall we say, as Hugo and keeping her feet firmly on the banks!

P1200988

Smudge is rockin the poofy look πŸ˜€

It’s acts just like velcro for the undergrowth hahaha!

I have been meaning to take a photo of Archie and Hugo together for a while. They are sadly not on the same walks though they do get to spend a little time together every now and then on car rides. How cute they are together. Go tream Cocker Spaniel!

A little Wednesday sunshine…

We had a little hint of blue skies and sunshine this afternoon, one could almost believe summer was round the corner…..

…ok maybe that’s a little wishful thinking! πŸ˜‰

We enjoyed our morning walk in the Dell, meeting many of our regular friends.

This afternoon we had a lovely frolic in the woods on Blackford Hill. Maud was delighted to have her boys around her, and there was lots of jostling and noisy playing. They can’t get enough of it! Hector and Hamish however are far too sensible for such nonsense haha. They look on baffled at the young ones shenanigans!

P1200973 P1200976

We are enjoy the last few days with the lovely Hamish. Will be SUPER sad to see him go.
