Tag: dog love


The answer is to chill out under the shade of a tree or indoors like these doggies did. It was pretty hot over here, on Wednesday (23/01/2019) so I kept the dogs inside the house (and Rocky was in the dog play house where he likes to hang out). Remember to keep your dogs out of the sun, indoors (NEVER inside the car) and with plenty of fresh water. Enjoy NZ summer!...

Our guest this weekend is Bud

This is Bud who’s made himself comfortable on our couch. He’s a 1-year-old Staffy-cross that we are looking after this weekend. He’s super playful and enjoys a good wrestling game with Blair. Bud is such a placid and cuddly big dog! A great example to those out there who think this is a “vicious” breed. It’s all in how you raise and treat your dog. Little chihuahuas can be more ferocious than this big fella here. When you treat them kindly, any dog pays you with twice as much love....

I’ve had dogs all my life and losing them either to old age or to an accident never gets easier or less painful. But it is something that we know will eventually happen and as much......

A set of images of our Jack from when we adopted him over a year ago til now. We adopted Jack in January 2017 from a dear friend who, unfortunately, had to give him up after she’d been made redundant. She had to move to Auckland to find another job. Since Jack was already 9 years old and on meds, Blair and I didn’t think he’d stand much of a chance of getting adopted if he were taken to SPCA or Second Chance. So, we offered to keep him. And our love......
