    How much do you actually walk your dogs?

    Hollypops is a 4 year old Lab and Oh and I work full time. During the week she is walked for 30 minutes first thing, 1 hour at lunchtime with dog walker (plus chums so 1 hour's hooning!) then 1 hour after work. All off lead. At the weekend she has 30 minutes morning and evening and a longer...

    Taking matchy matchy schooling too far?

    Bit of schooling on Sunday in the sunshine :) in preparation for stressage this weekend. OH took some shots of us and looking back at them I feel I may have taken matchy matchy too far...... Is it wrong to coordinate with your truck as well? And my favourite picture as he is...

    How much do you guys pay for big dog insurance.

    I pay £14.87 a moth with MoreThan for my Lab. Think I have £8k vets fees and public liability for that.

    Puppy pictures!

    Met up with my friend at the weekend and took full advantage of the fact she has a new puppy to stock up on puppy snuggles :) I could have quite happily stolen her and taken her home. Lottie is 14 weeks old and a Patterdale Terrier. She really is the cutest thing ever so here are some...

    Who has a dog walker?

    Yes £10 a day or £50 a week. It's the going rate and to be honest to get someone who is honest, reliable, properly insured and checked it is worth every penny. M

    Who has a dog walker?

    I have a dog walker for Holly Pops. I found her via the t'internet as I was moving to an new area and didn't know anyone to get a recommendation from. I arranged to meet her at my house, she supplied references and a police check and I made sure Holly liked her. I followed up her references...

    would you recommend a rescue lurcher?

    Well just outside Morpeth in Longhirst- all the best people are in the North East ;) Would definitely consider a small greyhound if there was something suitable and more than willing to work with recall. Thankfully Holly has super recall and would hopefully be a good influence on any...

    would you recommend a rescue lurcher?

    Over the last 4 months I have had to have both my 18 year old cats put to sleep :( and this has left my Lab Holly without company. She loved both cats and although she is okay on her own I'd rather she had company when I'm at work. I can't face the thought of getting another cat yet but have...

    What Holly did in pictures

    Wish it made her tired- We can be out 3 hours off lead walking, she has a quick 30 minute nap and she's ready for more. :)

    What Holly did in pictures

    Just been having a little sort out of photos from the last couple of weeks and thought I'd post some shots of what Holly has been up to. She met a friends 12 week old Patterdale Terrier puppy- "What are you exactly?" She had a fun time at the beach, hunting bunnies in the dunes and...

    Do not read if you don't care for Matchy threads (esp Anky)

    OMG- I really, really don't need anymore matchy matchy sets but fuscia and light khaki would look aa-maz-ing on my bright bay boy. And I already have a gilet in that exact khaki colour. And aquamarine is really tempting too...... ****MUST RESIST NEW ANKY COLOURS******
