me holding a large dog

“Who said I’m too big to be picked up?” These could be Bud’s words, if only he could talk! This big boy spent 8 days with us while his humans were abroad. What a delight it was to have Bud with us. Such a good dog, so cuddly. He has no idea of how big he is though, and loves to be picked up. I gotta tell you, I was impressed with myself 🙂 Great leg work out picking him up off the ground. Ohh I miss him already…...

Weekend delight

Weekend delight with all these doggies! What a treat it was to have all these dogs with us! Mel, our regular client who comes every Friday and stays until Saturday, this time stayed all the way to Monday so her mom and dad could go on a short trip over the weekend. Shelby, the black bull-breed dog, is a sweetheart. She’s full of energy, but very gentle when it comes to playing with smaller dogs. Mel and Shelby had a blast together. And by night time, they both crashed and slept all......

A walk along the Christchurch Coastal Track (Redcliffs to Sumner)

We had our guest at Daycare today, Ruby, a cute whippet who’s been coming to Rocky & Co. Pet Care for a few months now. She’s full of energy and loves to go for long walks, just like my boys do. Today was a drizzly and cool day, and I didn’t want us to be stuck inside the house, so I took my 3 boys and our guests Macca (a Sidney Silk) and Ruby to one of my favorite city walking tracks: the Christchurch Coastal Pathway. We probably did about 2 km......

This is Buddy. He’s been staying with us over the Holiday season. And what a character that he is! He’s basically still a puppy and has a lot of energy. That’s great when it comes to our daily morning walks which are offered to all dogs that stay with us (check out Dog Sitting). Buddy needs regular exercise (and so do I … shush). Our regular walks have been awesome to keep this big boy happy and unstressed. But other things are important to keep him (and every dog) physically and mentally healthy. So......

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....
