Tilly

Tilly

Tilly is a cute and very active ‘Staffy Cross’ I met near the viaduct at Chappel in Essex … Despite the rain and cold,  she was determined to have fun chasing her ball –  Dogs are great at being adaptable and seeking Joy.  We have a lot to learn from them …    

Rusty at Cudmore Park, East Mersea

Rusty at Cudmore Park, East Mersea

Rusty and I took our first trip out to Cudmore Grove Country Park on Mersea Island today and we were very impressed.  We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves; meeting many friendly people and lots of new friends for Rusty to play with … It’s a perfect place for dogs to have fun – with both plenty of […]

Rusty’s Camping Holiday in Dorset

Rusty’s Camping Holiday in Dorset

Do you want to take your dog on an enjoyable, hassle-free holiday in the UK ? Dog Holidays are my favourite type of holiday; especially camping holidays – because I get to exercise lots, spend all my time in The Great Outdoors and live a simple, stress-free life for a week or two … with […]

Dog-Friendly Watering Holes in Suffolk

Dog-Friendly Watering Holes in Suffolk

The Nethergate Brewery Tap at Rodbridge near Sudbury is a great place to stop off when you’re out with the dogs. The lure of a refreshing pint, cool glass of Prosecco, or flavoured gin, is certainly an encouragement to walk a little bit faster ! The taproom and shop are dog-friendly and there are always […]

Rusty at the Stables

Rusty came with me at the weekend whilst I visited a friend at her stables. I was so excited to meet the horses in her care and didn’t want to leave Rusty at home alone – so this was a brand new experience for him.   He certainly appeared a little unsure of things as […]

Bella

I would like to introduce you to Bella – a gorgeous Whippet/Labrador cross – who I was lucky enough to meet last weekend at her owner’s stables. I’ve never seen this particular combination of breeds before and I was immediately smitten. Bella is graceful and playful, with the prettiest face and a rich rusty coat […]

Suffolk Dog Day 2016

The ‘Majestic’ and moated Helmingham Hall in Suffolk – with its glorious expanse of parkland – was once again the setting for the annual Suffolk Dog Day. It’s an extremely well-organised event on all fronts, which always results in a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, despite the presence of hundreds of dogs of all colours, shapes and […]

Archie & Clover visit Sudbury Water Meadows

It was about time that I introduced Archie, Clover and of course Lisa to Sudbury Water Meadows …..     Archie had a glorious time rolling in and eating cowpats, therefore ensuring that none of us ( apart from Rusty ) wanted to get anywhere near him !  Luckily, plenty of water was on hand […]

Suffolk Gundog Club at the Suffolk Show 2016

I made my annual visit to The Suffolk Show last week, in conditions that could only be described as wintry.  In fact, the weather forecasters confirmed that Thursday 2nd June was colder than Christmas Day … Meeting some of the members of the Suffolk Gundog Club certainly cheered me up and I managed to get […]

Poppy & Snowy

    I was lucky enough to join a group of close friends for an enjoyable walk around the beautiful Suffolk countryside at the weekend – taking in the picturesque village of Kersey. The walk was made perfect for me by the presence of 2 new friends for Rusty … Poppy, the Jack Russell Terrier […]
