    ^ a couple of things to look out for: 1) if you have a throw on a sofa or armchair/s, before you sit down, pick it up and check that the little guy is not sleeping underneath it. 2) secure your trash bin.
    Never ceases to amaze me that most of us get absolutely nothing in return for our generosity and altruistic deeds..

    Took Loki for a decent walk up Burnbank Fell looking down over Lowsewater. Lucky enough to live 5 mins from this:





    And this is 30 seconds after getting home😂

    Love living in the Lakes, weather can be harsh but well worth it to get out on the fells on days like today👍

    Lovely place for walking, we went there two years ago. Loki is lucky!

    There’s a couple of cats staying next door, driving Lola mad.

    She keeps sticking her nose up to a knot hole for a sniff.

    Little thing arrived yesterday. Shes been good as gold with no accidents off her puppy mats.
    She does, however, like to get up up UP at half five in the bloody morning.
    We've named her Mavis.

    Well done V, hopefully Mavis will start to fit in with your sleep patterns soon.

    Thanks, she’s 14 and it’s just the cycle of life plus cancer and other complications, not nice watching her slowly go down hill though.

    Mavis looks like she is well aware of her star potential already!

    Please keep us updated with photos - she’s an absolute cracker.

    Yes you right, she was a rescue from Battersea dogs, we adopted her when she was three years old and have had her eleven years.
    She had not been treated well (very timid) and had been used for breading, never been on grass and in a cage because of the dreadful state of her worn down teeth supposed from chewing to get out.
    Couldn’t get her to eat anything the first few days until we had a pizza delivered....she knew what a pizza was alright! and scoffed it down

    Like many animals, dogs have to rely on humans for their welfare and cannot speak up for themselves.
    She was certainly lucky to find you.

    Loving Mavis!
    Ennerdale today:





  29. #2129
    It's one of my mutts birthday tomorrow (Chester, fat Basset), he'll be 8. I have just bought them (two dogs, the other one is Phoebe who will be 12 in August and she's a black Lab) £23 worth of steak, and spent £47 in Pets at Home on treats for them. I don't mind buying but I do mind the cooking of the steak as I don't eat poor little moo cows (or piggies or sheeps) but it's his birthday, so I must - it's a tradition :)

    I showed the pics to my wife and I received mixed responses: "Ahhs" and "Ohhs" when seeing the pics and then I received flak for the fact that it took me some days before I showed her the pics... Oh well...

    If they've got healthy digestive systems then don't bother cooking the steak👍

    You've both landed on your feet there!

    Of all the dogs I've had, Staffies are the ones that just seem to be extra special, particularly rescued ones. It's like have another person around when they're with you. Well done, enjoy every moment together.

    Thanks for that.
    Yes we do enjoy every minute we're with our boy. He is definitely more than a pet and the loyalty and affection you get is 100%.

    A walk round Cogra Moss yesterday then off to Ennerdale this morning:







  45. #2145
    I had the pleasure of dog sitting Frank this weekend. He's just about a year old and dare I say, it his owners have skimped on his training. I was able to get him not to pull on the lead in the end and to return, but only if he heard the training treats bag rustle. He was incredibly keen to look out of the window, almost suicidally so. He was trying to jump from that chair onto the window sill by the open window! That's him listening to next door's children playing. He wanted to join in.

    Thank you all, I have to remind myself he's not actually my dog. I've got him for a long weekend in early July, so the training will continue.

    I do love Daxis, I had three as a boy, but they are seriously expensive to buy and a huge responsibility. Dog sitting is probably the best way, for me, at the moment.
