Dog Shaming

Well as the weather worsens - days getting darker and colder - we still like to have a good chuckle to keep the spirits high. Dog Shaming is an ingenious website which shows our naughty pets put to guilt. Some of the stories are very relatable but some; we are grateful to not experienced - hopefully never to!

An unlikely couple

Here's a little video of our Merlin playing with Kai. These two haven't seen each other for a while but it's just great that they just love to play with each other and become friends. Merlin is progressing nicely - especially as he's still a pup - and he's a smart little wizard picking up commands quickly.

Bailey and Chloe

These two lovable canines - Chloe and Bailey - have became best of friends in a few short days. They have made the best of the wet weather and have a blast while running through all the puddles and mud there is.

Chloe Chloe Chloe!

Currently Chloe is staying over with the girls - Skye and Rhu - for a few nights. This lovely goldendoodle has already become friends with Skye and was following Skye's lead on the long walk home. 

She then made her self right at home with joining Skye - Rhu wasn't up for much fun after the long walk -  in playing with the toys and bones. Over the next few nights she'll be out and about with the girls and hopefully the good weather!

It's Autumn!

It's the start of the darker and cold days, but it doesn't stop us having the same fun we always have! As you can see camera shy Merlin has just straight into the spirit and covered himself in all the leaves he could!

And here is Oscar and Bobby having fun with their favourite toy: balls! These two just love to play fetch and could run forever if there is a ball to chase; this is their first time meeting each other and as you can see they are more interested in the balls that anything else!

In light of the Staffie Awareness Week...

Drug dealers have been injecting their dogs - mainly Staffies - with herion.

Click on the link for the full article; but the title is sickening enough to hear. How anyone could expose their pet to such dangerous substances is beyond thought - and for what gain?

Wee Winston the Mountaineer

Here are a couple photos Winston's mum sent me of her and Winston when they climbed up Ben Vorlich last weekend. This is Winnie's second Munro! He is an amazing dog and is so fit now compared to last year. Proof that even a small dog can climb mountains.

George Staying Over Again

George came to stay for the night this weekend. The girls love George and he loves them. He is far from a pup now but he's still got a spring in his step and he loves staying over. He settles quickly and is usually fast asleep within a couple hours. He'll find his space and nest which is what most of our house guests do. My girls give a good example to follow and I think that's what makes it such a relaxing place to be for dogs. They're safe, warm and comfortable - what more could you want?

Staffie Awareness Week

This week is the start of Staffie Awareness Week.

There is too much stereotype about the Staffordshire Bull Terrier from being an aggressive breed to being associated with drugs. Staffies are lively and loyal dogs, who love nothing more than decent exercise and a loving home environment. The bad press that they have received in the past years is all due to bad owners, any breed of dog can turn aggressive and pose a danger to the public if the owners don't train it or care for it properly.

So if you are looking for another or new dog, please visit the rescue centres and don't ignore the staffies as they could be one of the best dogs to have!
