Doggy Politics

Bruff's Bark are not one for messing about with Politics, but this piece of news is worthy of a mention.

In the town of Cormorant, Minnesota; they recently elected Duke as their mayor for his third term! He won the election with a landslide of 12 votes! If only we had someone like Duke to vote for here.

Who is the boss? Bonnie is the boss!

I do love a good run with my running buddy Bonnie up Costorphine Hill, although whenever I stop or want water I get told off for stopping!

Bonnie is defo the boss on her runs!!

Elmo has a new Bro!!

Now, Elmo is a cheeky chappy and now has got a cheeky side kick called Harley.

He is a 9 and a half year old Lurcher. This old lad has had a colourful past  and not all good.

He is now able to put his stressful past behind him and enjoy being  part of the Bruffs Bark Band.

Doggy News

So it's been pretty busy in the world of dogs recently, so let's start with the important news!

Source: BBC News
Some of you might have done it to protect your dog(s) from getting lost or taken but now it's law! Yes, microchipping your four legged friend is now law! So if you know someone who hasn't chipped their dog or you haven't done it yourself, get it done as soon as possible! As there is a fine of up to £500!

Next up, related to the previous news, is the exposure of 'Land of the Strays' in Costa Rica. This is about Territorio de Zaguates, a dog haven that's run in by volunteers to take care of the countries strays. With over 900 dogs in the shelter, it take a lot of hard work and some big walks to make sure every pooch is taken care off! Full story here.

Finally, a heartwarming story about a truly remarkable dog, Lucca the 12 year old German Shepherd who has been awarded the PDSA Dickens Medal for her bravery and loyalty. She puts some of the Bruff's Bark Band to shame, who just fear going out in the wind and the rain!

The Hound of the Boswall

The weather has been of unknown with fog and sunshine, and rain in between! But we are out no matter the weather and so are the Bruff's Bark Band. So Noah the big pup got to go on a journey through the heavy fog and experience the art of getting lost in it!


Look at that big grin!

Next up we have Noah meeting a lovely girl who we've had since a pup as well, Juno - she's over a year old and he's still got more growing to do! They were instantly inseparable and knackered each other out by running, running and running!

February Catch Up!

So February is nearly ended?! The weeks just seem to fly in, least it will be Spring and Summer soon though! We've had some sun at least in the meantime, though it's still a bit chilly!

So we've had Digger come to Hotel Bruff for the day and as you can see he's made himself right at home and fast asleep with Skye.



Next we had a big adventure with the Girls, Buster and Noah!

These lot know how to be patient!
But they know how to have "fun", well at least Noah likes to move!


And then we have Cara meeting Noah for the first time and becoming best friends, whilst Rhu and Skye mope about.

Dirty Beasts

Well having been battered by one storm after another, what would be more fun than MUD!! Noah was out trying to become a black lab today. Puglet Rudi was not best impressed with the mud between his toes. Rhu and Skye had a no bother with dirt!

Great Start to February!

So February has well has truly started, we didn't even notice January ending! The weather hasn't changed much just a new storm every week!

So here's what's been happening at Bruff's Bark:

Kari has been learning swim in the new rivers!



Noah has learned of the mud and has tried to change from a blonde to a black labrador, much to our constant pleas to stay out of it.


And Skye loath of the wind and rain has made her an unhappy dog, wanting to just sleep the days away - we know that feeling.
