About Me

I am a home educating mum of 2 living in the Northwest of England. I long to travel with my family (including the fluffs) to see the world and have amazing adventures, because life is too short to worry about paying off a mortgage!

I should have been a Mediterranean Dog

So first of all I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break and are looking forward to the next long weekend? I certainly am! I got to spend all of mine taking quick walks to and from the local shop, chasing bees and wasps in the garden, barking at all the neighbouring dogs and winding them up and hiding from next door's scary electronic wheely thing (a kid's toy apparently but I don't believe that). A fantastic weekend for any outdoor loving dog. I must admit though I could get used to this lovely weather, at the slightest hint of sun I always find the heat patch and settle myself down for a good, long kip. Mum thinks I should have been a Mediterranean dog, as I tend to sit in the sun for so long that my fur is red hot by the time I move to find a shady spot, and even that takes me a while. There's nothing better than sunning yourself for an hour or so and then finding a cool place to pant it out.

The question is, are there any other dogs out there that do the same thing or is it just me?

My New Dinner - Barking Heads yum!

Despite the huge range of pet food on the market and after many taste trials - undertaken by myself of course, it's a tough job but some pup has got to do it, I am now settled on the Barking Heads range.
After sampling the TLC; chicken and rice that's gentle on the tummy, and the Bad Hair Day; lamb and rice to improve coat shine, I am now happily munching my way through the Golden Years - for the, ahem, older dog. Anyway I am pleased to report that I'm always happy to receive my bowl full and make sure I clear my plate and wag my tail to let mum know she's got it right.
After much persuasion - I can get away with so much with these big brown eyes, I have got mum to write a Barking & Meowing Heads article on why we love their range of food, and hopefully we can share this yummy meal with fellow furries across the UK. Bon Appetit!
