I have been for a few walks on the hills and got covered in lots of mud. It’s great fun but the humans don’t think so


November pupdate

Hello all.
It’s very cold over here so we got our winter coats out now.mum slipped on some ice this morning so I get to run offlead now and daisy on short lead. Stella refusing to go out bol!


We lost daisys coat on one of our long walks so mum has cut down one of stellas old ones and made it pretty. She also has a new green fleece for when it only bit cold



Stella has a new neon yellow coat which is fleece lined and also has a hoody for inside as the cold is getting to her legs causing her pain


She has also got a thundershirt which was great for the fireworks. Really calmed her down. She still bit jumpy with some of them

Sorry for delay

As you may have noticed I have not posted this month. This is due to either my typist being ill or my sister or me being poorly.

I have bad kennel cough at the moment so am having to stay inside causing trouble. Mum has got me new toys to keep me happy tho
A new giggly ball from spaniel Harry’s hemporium @spanielharry on twitter which is great fun. I also got a giggly dumbbell but I don’t really like that one


Will try to get on again before end of month

Woofs to you all

Poem of the week

A lovely poem for you all to enjoy

Why do you love me,dog? By Derek neville.

Why do you love me,dog? Said i
There were trees and fields beneath the sky
There was freedom for you to roam
Why do you come to me for home?
Why do you love me,dog?

Why do you love me dog? I said
As i stroked the hair of his shaggy head
We hunt the fox and kill the birds,
And though we talk-we waste our words
Why do you love me,dog?

Why do you love me,dog? Did you
Think man could make your dreams come true?
We burn and plunder,kill and maim
And yet you love us just the same,
Why do you love me,dog?

Why do you love me,dog, I pray?
Did Christ show you the truth,the way,
And bid you teach to foolish man
The secrets of the God heads plan?
Why do you love me,dog?

He made no answer; only raised
His ears to listen; only gazed
Up to my face with lifted paw,
As if something sacred saw-
That might have been his god.

Collar caddy review

week we are testing the collar caddy by pick it up.


It is a collar with 4special compartments allowing dogs to carry their own stuff.

We are testing the large size for dogs 20kg+ with neck 17″+.


What is included:
Collar caddy with high quality flat buckle collar.


2 x drinks bottles each holding around 1/3 glass of water.suitable for a normal walk but will need refilling or extra bottles if longer walk or warm weather.they have their own compartment in the caddy



10x disposable drinks trays to be used with the bottle for a drink.they unfold easily and can fit 1-2 in caddy but small enough for your pocket.will last 1walk but designed to be thrown away after


20x large good quality poo bags. Folded up ready to pop in caddy.fits 2-4 depending on other stuff being carried. Can also use your own if you fold them.


Emergency lead- lightweight nylon.tested on 26kg Labrador pulling towards food and is strong.fits neatly into compartment or in a pocket

The large caddy is brown and gold so will fit in most dogs coloring without standing out too much.

The compartments are in 2 sections with a clip in middle that comes off to help.clean easily.the clip also helps caddy to bend and adjust to most dogs necks.


The caddy is easy to clean and will wash with warm water and dry easily.the collar is also washable.

The collar caddy can also be used with your own flat buckle collar as the collar supplied comes out easily and new collar slides in in 30secs.this allows dogs with a different neck size to the collar supplied can wear the caddy.below is our own collar


The compartments are not fully watertight if going swimming in river or heavy rain. It is recommended to have treats and drink trays in plastic bag.


Only small bag of treats can fit in compartment if carrying trays,bags and lead as well.slightly bigger bag or loose treats can fit in if not using both bottles or trays etc.


Took us a while to find a good way to fit everything in.we put a drinks tray and lead in one section.and pok bags and treats in the other side.this allows compartments to close properly.


An id tag can be attached to collar as normal and can also be written on in permanent marker on outside or a label.stuck inside in case of loss of dog.


I’m not bothered bout it round neck and have fallen asleep wearing it. It is not heavy or bulky and is curved so doesn’t dig in neck if I rest head on it

-Fits most dogs as can change collar
-Cleans quickly and easily
-Fits a lot of things in
-Not bulky or heavy

-Small waterbottles-need extra bottles on a bigger walk
-Although fits lots in, doesn’t fit more than 2-3poo bags and trays(some dogs do lots of poos)
-Not watertight in heavy rain or river(I like splashing in river)

Overall mum says she would buy another one and thinks it good quality item.

Charlie and derek biskits

Today I got my biskit order from Charlie and Derek dog treats. Came carefully packaged in a box with lots of bubble wrap and a special treat for mum wrapped up too. And a selection of samples for you to taste other flavors or pass onto your friends.
All treats are in cellophane packets tied with pretty coloured ribbons- each treat has its own colour and also include a gift tag if you want to give as a gift.


My flavors this month are banana and carrot flapjacks, bacon egg and cheese biskits and mackerel oaties.

My favorite are the mackerel oaties as I love fish.they taste very fishy and have a bit of smell but not too strong. Mum can have them in her pocket without pocket getting stinky too. They are perfect sizes for going to the park with and for training.

Banana and carrot flapjacks are lovely with a bit of sweetness added with honey. I only get these as special treat. Just like most of the other treats in the range these can be carried in pocket without stinking or crumbling but can be broken in half easily for small dogs although perfect size for all.unfortunately mum also likes these ones 😦

The bacon egg and cheese is a new flavor inspired by our friend Bella who loves bacon. You can smell all the flavors and I picked this one most times in a treat chowing test. The texture is great and doesn’t crumble.

All treats have natural ingredients and even humans can eat if they really wanted to although they are for us dogs. Each order includes a human biskit. Mum has had a gingernut, a shortbread and a choc shortbread biskit and hasn’t lasted long enough to take pic of.

All treats including wheat-free treats and gift baskets can be found at for very reasonable prices. They are also on twitter @Charlie__Derek and you can talk to them about their biskits
