Life's High Flyers

Ziggy is one of life's high flyers - in every way.
Fran's one year old Working Cocker Spaniel - who she bred herself - is showing all the signs of being not only a very good gundog but of having the potential to be a trialling dog.

If ever a photograph summed up Honey, this one does.
This bright eyed little Chihuahua likes nothing more than to lay on something soft, be it a bed or a cushion. The only proviso ? It needs to be in a warm spot, preferably next to an Aga !

Luna went home recently, having stayed with us for two months of residential training. After one or two early set backs, progress was fast and she proved herself a quick learner, remembering what she'd been taught.
These two photographs really do represent this lovely dog and the loyalty she showed us.

If you want a real character around the house, look no further than Louis, an 11 mth old  Shih Tzu. When he first boarded with me a few months ago he was a little nervous, but of course he couldn't stay that way with Cocker Spaniels wanting to play with him - something had to change. And so we now have a very confident little dog who really is great fun.

Pippa is a young Black Labrador who's been staying with me for residential training over the past few weeks. I like this photograph, simply because now she can be trusted to recall, meaning that given the right circumstances, she's off lead altogether.

Haweswater and the surrounding fells are a wonderfully peaceful area to walk the dogs. Photographs like this make me realise how lucky I am to live in this beautiful corner of England.

Herdwick sheep are renowned for their hardiness and can be seen anywhere in the county. A drop of rain, as seen in the background, will never make these creatures run for cover !
