Some Seasonal Pics

Had a little crowd of boarders over the weekend!

Bobbi with the Teenacher
Slightly after the first photo, she wanted to go to sleep but couldn't quite settle...
Finally we managed to tire Baxter out!

Charlie showing off his Christmas collar.


Charlie playing chase me chase you - this is where puppies take turns chasing each other, but the other dogs aren't really sure what he's doing as they are all big growed up doggies. Depsite being smaller.

And the Toys - who want to run around like loonies. Then the terriers get involved and it all goes to pot a bit.

It's Christmas!

Well not yet! But nearly.

Thanks you so much for all your help with looking after our lovely Inky. He's a much happier dog because of you!

Fetching snow accessory there Inky!

A Walk on the Dark Side - Charlie

Here's Charlie all ready for his evening walk last week. He was slightly startled to see me in the evening and wasn't sure what to make of his jacket!


It's difficult to take a picture of a dog in the dark because, well, it's dark. Usually all I get is a bright blur as the jacket reflects the flash, but we found someone who had nicely placed a light on their driveway and managed to get at least a half decent pic.

Dog of the Month - November

Here's November's Dog of the Month - Dexter!

Dexter first came to me in August 09 for boarding, then started dog walking with me in August this year, so he got his Walkies Award at the same time. I haven't managed to get such a good photo of a dog posing with his rosettes before! Dexter looks chuffed to bits. He also looks a bit mucky, but, well, if you're not mucky, covered in branches, snow or slobber can you really say you've had a good time??



Dexter's award was for being an independent free spirit, who ALWAYS (nearly) comes when he's called.

Our first meeting August 09, awww, so sweet and cute looking!

 And yes he is stuck. This is what I call a rescue dog. He followed the big dogs in, then couldn't get out and needed to be rescued. Normally when dogs do this they choose a bank with nettles on, so I get stung as well as wet and muddy...

Don't Just Take my Word for it, Here's What the Clients Say...

Thank you so much for braving the freezing temperatures and the snow last week to walk Dexter, both he and I were really grateful! x

More Snow Days!

The dogs like to play It (or Tag if you prefer) but backwards. Whoever is tagged is chased by all the other dogs. First is Charlie...

He manages to tag Bingley, who puts up a good chase, bit of hurdling, then somehow manages to cheat and be at the back of the pack again. Tch.

Snow Days!

Although I have had to cancel some of my walks for safety reasons I am still doing my main walk at lunchtime. Not as many dogs as usual, but what dogs have come out with me have been having a great time!

Something smelly to follow? Fred, Phoebe & Dexter


Bingley always looks posh and composed. Yes he's wearing two coats. Only sensible to keep his tummy covered!
 Phoebe & Baxter, Dexter in the background (nose on ground again!)
 My Dad has assisted last two days - regular assistant Will is walking Bobbi on her own as he lives near to her. Must nag him to take some photos!

The park is so quiet at the moment, and so beautiful. We walked through lots of virgin snow, all the dogs are medium sized or smaller, so lots of bounding around through deep snow!
