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 […]

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 […]

Ready to Run …

    It was a beautiful afternoon yesterday on the water meadows in Sudbury – cold but bright – and perfect for me to capture some action shots of Rusty Dog. I particularly wanted to take some images with Rusty ‘poised for action’, because he strikes some excellent poses when he is waiting for his […]

The Power of “Dog”

  Do you ever feel like you have lost all  your positive energy ?   That’s how I felt this morning … This is a bad feeling to have on a Wednesday morning – as I now have 2 days off to spend being creative and having fun with Rusty – so I should be […]

Rusty’s Story – Part 2

This is a copy of my second blog about Rusty the Dog, originally written on the 11th March 2014. It is really uplifting to re-read this entry and to remind myself just how much the two of us achieved in such a short space of time – and how close we had grown. The way […]

Rusty’s Story – Part 1
