We're Still Here !

After a few days away from the blog I thought I'd take the opportunity to recap on one or two things which have been going on.
Unfortunately Brook has hurt her foot, so at the moment it has a bright red bandage around it. I have no idea what she did, as she's has been with me so much of the time. My vets - Frame & Swift in Penrith - have carried out various tests and x-rays and are a little puzzled themselves. No breaks, bruises or cuts etc. Thankfully, she's slowly on the mend and I'll be taking her back on Monday.

As for Dexter. His training is really coming on very well and I'm pleased with his progress.
However, he enjoys a nocturnal stroll - made easier by his ability to open doors! For the past two weeks I've been sleeping on the settee in an effort to make him stay on his own bed and he has slowly got the message!! This is not just for my benefit but also for that of his owner, who, when reunited, should also be able to have an undisturbed night!

The heavy rain and gale force winds have now died down thankfully, which makes walking that little bit easier!

The Italian Connection - Harry the Spinone

Let me introduce you to Harry, an Italian Spinone. Harry arrived yesterday for a day's "try out", prior to any long term boarding. He's as gentle as he looks and those eyes .... ! Janet

"Come on Chief, smile !!"

"Come on Chief, smile !!" That look from 9 mth old Chief tells me I'm lucky to take even one photograph of him ! Chief is just one dog who has stayed with me since the New Year, either for boarding or residential training. Nearly all can be seen on my Cumbria Dog Training Facebook page, and with a husband who is more than cabaple Peanut enjoys the fells. Meet Nala, a beautiful Portuguese Water Dog, who, at 7 mths old is still displaying alot of puppy traits. She's staying for a 24 hr try out and has fitted in really well. I'm pleased to be able to say that Peanut is staying with me again. This young Cocker is such a lovely girl who makes herself right at home and gets on so well with everyone, both people and dogs. And finally, time for my own girls !

Keep Cool Sumo !

Few things are nicer than a beautiful summer's walk being finished off by a cooling swim in a beck, hidden from all and known by only a few. Paul's dog Sumo is in his element here, with the joy of jumping in, then swimming to retrieve a tennis ball. Sumo leaps for he's worth. Bert has figured out how to leave the far bank to cross the beck but unfortunately for him, he's sitting on the last rock. Next step will be into the water.....not a thing he particularly enjoys. Bert  A beautiful image captures a beautiful dog - Lewis, a Black Labrador. Lewis  Chester is a regular boarding dog and his owners asked Paul to take a series of photographs of him while he stayed with us. Here is just one of them. Chester What can I say ? This is me having alot of fun - especially with Milo, a Pug X Shih Tzu.
