Another Winter Season…

It’s December already!!! I cannot believe we are reaching the end of another year…mind blowing. And what a fantastic year it has been, now that the colder weather has arrived though I echo my puppies sentiment, the sofa and blankets are very appealing! Perhaps we should all just hibernate for a few months….

If you don’t enjoy walking dogs in the winter, at 7am in the morning before its even light and the rest of the world has woken up, then don’t become a dog owner!! Your dogs needs come first, above your need for your cosy warm bed!

So Ella, Smudge and I visited Edinburgh Zoo….just kidding 😀 It just so happens that the dogs discovered one of our walks on a nature reserve borders with Emu pen at Edinburgh Zoo. The dogs were very quiet and well behaved, but of course curious as hell about these massive scary birds! To be honest the Emus were very curious too and did not look the least bit concerned. The dogs however were I think VERY grateful for the high fencing between them lol!

Dumplings anyone!

For the Love of Dogs

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…’
