Puppy Bill ,Goodbye Our Beautiful Boy X

Today we said goodbye to one of the most special dogs that will ever come our way. Puppy Bill was special in every way. When we rescued his Mum, Bessie,she was already in pup,and he and his siblings were born by the side of our bed on Minos birthday. ,I did not want to keep…

Puppy Bill

Poor Puppy Bill has had trouble standing of late. I thought his poor old back legs could no longer hold him up,but on closer inspection,found he had a swollen,angry looking back paw,almost certainly caused by a grass seed.He had one in his ear this time last year. Never a year goes by when one of…

Help for Puppy Bill

    Please can you help? We are trying to raise the money for a Help’EmUp harness for Puppy Bill,as he keeps slipping down on our tiled floor,as he has become very frail over the last few months,and one of these would be so helpful for him and us. But they are rather expensive, so…

The Vets Visit

Our Vet arrived bright and early on Saturday morning,she recieved a very warm welcome from all of the dogs,and one of the cats ,Nico,who had to keep getting in on the act ! The first to be examined was Janey,she thinks Janey’s turn was due to collic. Apparently when a dog gets collic,they produce gas,which…
