Rain, Rain, Rain…

Sitting at my desk, the lighting is low, not by my doing. The weather, although we were promised temperatures higher than Spain, has not stopped raining, so much so the roads were flooded in many places. Well, I ought to leave but the rain it never stops, and I’ve no particular place to go. Earlier…

Cooking for Dogs…

I was talking to the trainer last week regarding the food that I make for the dogs, including the biscuits, and she said that she used to do that but after a few weeks gave it up as she didn’t have time to do it.  This I found odd.  I prep the veg, usually carrots,…

The Puppy Foundation Assessment Certificate

Exam Time…

Colour me pink and call me proud. Yes, Mazikeen passed her Puppy Foundation exams.  I thought, if I am honest, that we would not pass as she can be a little distracted, which is due to her breed being super alert and watching for everything. I had to prove that I could give both verbal…

I am Cheeta…

I thought I would share with you the noise the pup makes when she is playing. She reminds us of Cheeta from the Tarzan movies. Usually, she is more vocal which obviously cracks us both up with laughter. Being a gundog she is supposed to be silent, however, I’m glad she has found her voice.…

Graffiti…

When we were in Rome, we notice that graffiti was quite literally everywhere, but in the UK it isn’t something you tend to come across that often, however, the other month I noticed these two, which had been painted over last year only to reappear the next day.  Where they are is out of the…
