It's been really strange during lockdown.  Bella and Raif have become really close and are playing together a lot more.  Bella is missing her cuddles off of the owners.  Fortunately we are financially viable and will still be here at the end of it, ready to welcome all of our pooches back.  Can't wait to cuddle them all

Happy New Year

Happy New Year, we had a good one with a few of our regular boarders. I've just added some new images to the slide show. Some are new dogs, some are our old timers. We're getting very busy in June, July and August.  My Christmas tree survived another year, despite having a 15month old lab in. Bella and Raif loved their presents. Still loving what I do.

We've had a nice quiet Christmas, just our 2 on Christmas morning, then Charlie munchkin came for daycare and Teddy the young Labrador has come for his holidays.  He's a big lad for 15 months.   Bella and Raif got lots of nice presents.  We've got a busy new year, which hopefully will continue throughout next year. A couple of weeks are already full.  We still welcome new dogs into our home

Ticking along

We've just come back from the New Forest.  Bella really enjoyed the sea. Raif just played on the sand.  We're ticking over nicely, lots of regulars who keep returning.   Just had a darling cocker pup in who was a proper bundle of fun.  As usual she went to mummy Bella for a cuddle when she was tired.  The dogs are still enjoying their runs in the woods

Things are really busy at the moment, we've got a lot of our regulars back in for their summer holiday. We've bought them a dog paddling pool, which is a huge success, especially in the hot weather.  Teddy the 11 month old labrador particularly loves it.

5 Stars

We have just received our star rating from the local council, and have been awarded 5 star low risk, which is the highest you can achieve.  We are very proud of this, and it is a reward for all the hard work that we put into the dogs in our care.  We are very busy over Easter, and through the summer.  We've just had a holiday, Bella was straight into the sea, Raif just ran on the sand

We've just had some young Labrador pups in.  They were very well behaved and got on with the rest of the pack. All the dogs get on well, and look forward to seeing each other, they love playing in the woods.  We're getting ready for our first holiday of the year, taking Bella and Raif with us. It wouldn't be a holiday if we didn't have our beloved pooches with us.  Bella loves the beach and going in the sea

Post Holiday

We had a lovely break in the new forest.  Bella loved the sea, Raif wasn't as keen.  We've been pretty busy since our return.  We currently have a dog called Oscar in, everybody thinks he's a pup but he's actually nearly 11.  He's settled really well. I've nearly completed sober October, and will have raised £100 for Mcmillan nurses, I'm really proud of myself and so is my hubby.  We're looking forward to Christmas, which we're keeping fairly quiet this year.  Our regulars are back with us.  They all get a present from santa!

Life's busy

Life's very busy at the moment, we've got 4 puppies in who are causing mayhem.  They don't stop playing!, they're all good off the lead in the woods, and come back when called.  Bella tends to round them up if they go too far. Raif is his usual hound self and keeps barking, but we still love him.  We're getting ready for a holiday. Time for some family time, which we all enjoy

It's been 3 years since we lost our darling girl Izzy.  We still miss her, when we go on her favourite walk I am sure that I can feel walking with me.  Her cross stitch picture is almost completed, Bella looks at it sometimes, and I'm sure she is smiling.  We've hit our busy time now.   Lots of regulars back for their holidays, life's a bit hectic but enjoyable.  So glad I gave up nursing!
