I’m just back from a weekend away in the big smoke – by golly it’s noisy, busy, exciting and incredibly uplifting to be amongst all the hussle and bustle of the crowds – for a day maybe.  My companion and I had promised ourselves a ‘trip down memory lane’ to celebrate birthdays within a month […]

I have just come back from the west country after a week’s exciting and sometimes hectic break with family, friends and just a few pups.  Wow how those pupsters can move and get into all kinds of scrapes and mischief!  The best days out were spent down on the beach – wind, rain, sand, seawater […]
