Down and out…

Internet Free Zone…

Well hello strangers! I am afraid due to a misunderstanding with my existing internet company we have been without internet for oh, quite a long time now!! So sadly once again we are very much behind in our photographs and blogging, seasons behind in fact! I will start back tracking, so it may be slightly confusing as to begin with we will still be going over some summer photos first! We are VERY much missing the summer weather right now, its FREEEEEEEEZING in Edinburgh now. However we will get to that soon enough. For now lets reminisces about some lighter, milder days gone by…

To start us off, one of the sweetest faces going, Mr Archie…SO much LOVE for this boy!

I am not going to ask for forgiveness either, I’m just gonna bombard you with post upon post of cutie-patootie doggie photos!! The super-duper cuteness will win you over I have no doubts 😀

I-phone photos…

 

 

Well we have been having some outstanding, truly spectacular weather recently!! It has been roasting! And we have been loving every minute of it!!

I have recently purchased an I-phone (I have finally caught up with the rest of the world haha!) and so have been experimenting with the camera and posting on instagram. For anyone who would like to follow my daily doggie photo posts on my instagram account the name to search for is;  Andreajackalleg. There are some art and fish keeping posts on my instagram page but mostly it’s of the amazing pups I spend my days with! After all, they are just so dalm photogenic!

Here is the catch up of photos from the last week.

First up its Molly who would like to take a minute to remind all our lovely customers that it is tick season especially with all this long grass to play in! So please check your pups over of a night-time for any unwelcome hangers-on!

Maud-monster staying in the shade. Bullies are not good at coping with the heat, so remember folks to always have water to cool them down. The fastest way to chill out any dog if they are not a big fan of going in the water on their own (like Maud is!) is to soak their chest, stomach, neck front legs with cool water. This acts as sweat and draws the heat out, helping them lower their body temperature faster. Paddling pools are a good idea if your pups like playing in the sun in your garden. If your dog does not like water at all then avoid taking them out at all in the heat of the day, opt for cool morning or evening walks instead. And most importantly folks please remember to NEVER leave your dog in your car in this weather. It can reach over 40 degrees in your car in under 20 mins, even with the window open. Each year dogs die in hot cars. Even if you just want to pop into the shops for ten minutes, leave your dog at home! Don’t risk it. http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/watch-what-happens-you-leave-7165791
