We've been meaning to pay a visit to Helmsley Walled Garden for a while now. We love the fact that you can bring your dog along with you, as many similar formal gardens in the area don't allow dogs. The only rule is that dogs have to remain on the lead, which is pretty reasonable!… Continue reading Helmsley Walled Garden, North Yorkshire
Beningbrough Hall have recently trialled special Dog Friendly days, so today we went along to one of them and here's what we thought. Previously, only assistance dogs had been allowed into the gardens & hall. Dogs have always been allowed in the parkland/grounds (and it's free to explore if you weren't already aware). But for the… Continue reading Waggy Tail Days at Beningbrough Hall, York
We made a very impromptu trip to Cosy Club York at the weekend, and we had such a great time we thought you'd like to read about it. Dogs are welcome to sit in the bar area & to be perfectly honest there isn't that much of a different to the restaurant. The tables are… Continue reading Cosy Club, York
Just before Christmas, Piper's Therapy Dog application was approved & we were given the go ahead to begin working. We've had such a positive response since posting about becoming volunteers, we thought we'd share our story. Initially we were registered with, probably, the most well-known therapy dog charity in the UK. I won't go into… Continue reading Therapy Dogs Nationwide
A while ago, we found ourselves in York City Centre with some time to kill, so we decided to go and get a bite to eat! I'd seen in the past that Lucky Days Cafe, on Parliament Street, has a big "dog friendly" sticker on the door so we thought we'd give them a try!… Continue reading Lucky Days, York
Everyone has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the bluebells. They're definitely a lot later than usual this year, the awful cold and wet weather really had delayed spring in general. So when we were strolling around the grounds of Beningbrough Hall today, you can probably imagine, like many others, we were thrilled to see… Continue reading Bluebells at Beningbrough!
90% of the time I self groom Piper (she goes to the groomers if I'm really busy) so I thought I'd show you our little routine & how we do things. It certainly takes me a lot longer than it would a trained professional (usually with a few added profanities) and I'm pretty sure I… Continue reading Full Grooming Routine
So Piper has been an important member of my Brownie Unit pretty much since she was 6 months old, so it was no surprise that she would be joining us on our pack holiday. Piper wears her own, specially adapted, uniform so she looks the part. She even had her own special camp blanket made… Continue reading Brownie Pack Holiday
On Sunday 3rd of September 2017, we joined Emma for one of her shoot days. We met her at Newmillerdam Country Park in Wakefield, Yorkshire. We already knew Emma, as we'd met at Dog Fest North 2016. This was a special day for Piper, as she met up with her litter brother, Milo, for the first time since… Continue reading Emma Bearman Photography
Our friends at Peach & Pooch tagged us to take part in the "What's in my Toy Box" tag on instagram this week. It was so well received & we had so many questions that I thought I'd share a blog post showing you our top 25 toys! Food Enrichment Toys This type of toy… Continue reading What’s In My Toy Box?
