Mud-Pie and Bluebells…

It has been a little while since my last post, we have started building up some footage of our walks again for another little Four Seasons Movie! So watch this space! I was inspired to make another one after watching the amazing youtube clip below. I have to admit pretty openly that this video is amazing and I’m WELL jealous!!! I think that its a better music video for Pharrell’s song ‘Happy’ than the official one! Plus that cat must literally be the coolest cat that ever lived, surfing and swimming like a dog…oh yeah!

We are enjoying the springtime sunshine when we can get it!

Mister Ruben was sporting a sore shoulder last night. Even though he was fine this morning and bouncing around like his typical Boxer-pup self we though it best to have a leash walk today…colour Ruben none too impressed!! Its just to be on the safe side puppy honest! Back to normal tomorrow!

Belle of the Ball…

The sun has returned!! Yey, after a very wet week where my poor camera has barely seen the light of day! We had some lovely walks today, every member of the gang (am & pm!) was on top form. I am so truly blessed to be able to spend my days in the company of such gorgeous, happy, loving dogs. I’ll never need a therapist…ever! Feeling down? Well here’s 12 happy faces ready to give you cuddles and kisses!! 😀 Oh yeah…

I also have a new puppy lady to introduce today, her name is Belle and she is a four-year old Golden Lab. And as you can imagine, she is as sweet as pie and having a ball staying with us! She did three-hour long walks with me today, met ten new dogs (not including the ones we met out on our walks!) and didn’t bat and eyelid. Off lead from the word go, perfect recall, great manners in general! In fact the only thing we had to teach her today was not to jump out of the car boot until she is invited. Remember folks an open door should not indicate to your pooches to dash out! Teaching your dogs to wait until they are given the go ahead to jump out, down, go through etc is all about keeping your dog safe, and teaching them this rule can go a long way in seriously preventing nasty accidents from happening. Belle did brilliantly, she is definitely getting it and I bet by tomorrow she will wait when the boot is opened! After all, dogs just want to get that treat, or be told how amazing they are!  I must give credit to Belle’s owner Paula, Belle is a fantastic dog with them most even temperament. When you spend time with a Labrador like Belle it is so easy to see why people love them…no not just love them, are obsessed by them haha!

Two of my favourite happy faces…’Ball, ball, ball, ball, ball, ball…’

Ruben is growing into a big strong lad! His Mum and Dad showed me a photo recently of his Dad, what a belter of a dog. Love watching this pup grow, can’t wait to do the comparison shot in a years time!

Good posing Gus, you know how to work the camera! Shame about the random person behind you, photo-bombing your shot!
