My poor  perfect little boy Squirt is sick. I had to take him to the vet as he clearly had a temperature and was not at all well. He gave him an injection of cortisone and one of antibiotic.The following day I had to start him on a weeks course of the same in tablet form. For…

Lady had her back dew claws removed last week,as they had been quite troublesome, in fact one of the claws had become embedded in her skin. The operation didn’t take long, and as usual she has been an angel. I only had to keep the dreaded collar on for one day, since then she hasn’t…

Well here we are into the start of another year! Where do they go. We started off very well with our fabulous donation to kick start  “The Land Plan” . Of course it’s also when we get a lot more dogs and cats abandoned. We learnt today that there is a person living around here,…

Well Jackie arrived Sunday morning, to a very damp Italy. Pooch and I met her and her friend at the airport. I took her straight to the villa where she is staying,which belongs to my very good friend Debbie, who is letting her use it, where Mino was preparing the lunch. Whilst he was getting…

We had a bit of a scare yesterday, the company that provides web space for pugliapooches.eu  seemed to disappear and took our website with them, not sure what happened, but am very pleased to say everything is ok and back to normal.

An update on Ginger. Ginger was really poorly, and we both thought the medication for the fits was maybe too strong. After talking to the vet, he decided to lower the dosage to see if he became more steady on his feet and not so sleepy. It has, to a degree worked, he is slightly…

Oh dear, I really think I am going crazy. With Dulcie in season, the dogs that are still intact, are driving us nuts. No one could begin to imagine how hard it is. We have 6 dogs that have not been neutured plus Rusty, who has only been done recently, so he still thinks he…

Mino and I go everyday to this boy, Clyde we have named him. This is the dog that was dumped in an appalling state. We take him a big bowl of nice tasty food to try and fatten him up. He is still very thin, but has started to improve. We wormed him and gave…
