Happy Valentine’s Day to you all! Hope you all had a day filled with lots of love, hugs and kisses 🙂
Our Valentine’s day was spent at home with our Aunty Jodi and Aunty Ashleigh, as our mum and dad were away on holiday. Jodi and Ashleigh are best friends so they made a lovely tasty meal (which of course they shared with us!) and baked heart cookies and macaroons, which we also got to sample.
Mummy and Daddy were in India on holiday for Valentine’s Day but they fed some stray dogs to spread some Doggy Love! Mum and dad also made their own message in a bottle and threw it in the sea for someone to find. They wrote in their message about their holidays and how they fed the stray dogs and asked whoever find the message to enjoy their own holiday and feed some more hungry dogs if they can find it in their heart.
Mum and dad also visited a dog rescue centre in Delhi called Friendicoes. Mummy bought bowls, leads, treats, toys, shampoo, thermometers and blankets and took a big holdall bag filled with supplies to donate to Friendicoes to help them look after Delhi’s doggies. They were very grateful and let mummy meet a few of the dogs in their care. Every time mum and dad go on holiday, they research a local shelter near where they are visiting and visit with donations while they are there. Mum says she misses us when she goes on holiday so feeding stray dogs and donating stuff to animal shelters means she gets her “doggy fix” when she’s away from us.

Whilst mum and dad were on holiday, our Aunties Jodi and Ashleigh came to live in our house to mind us. We love them loads so we didn’t miss mum and dad too much! Our dog walker, Riannan at Pawsome Pets, came twice a day to walk us. Riannan is the best – we love her! Even Dolly, who is timid and nervous and hadn’t met Riannan before now, came out of her shell and happily toddled off to the park for her walk everyday. For more information on Riannan and her dog walking service, click here.
This week, we went with mum and dad to join a small group of other volunteers to take part in Merseyside Dogs Home’s “Winter Walk” – a walk around Sefton Park with ten of the homeless dogs currently in their care. We helped by being very well behaved off our leads so that mum and dad could walk Uma Furman, a lovely little puppy who is searching for someone to adopt her. Uma is just four months old, a little timid, but great with people and other dogs, friendly and affectionate (she loves to be carried and fussed!) She will make someone a perfect dog and deserves some love and affection. To find out more about Merseyside Dogs Home, or to adopt Uma and give her a forever home, please click here.
We are starting to prepare for our spring and summer show schedule now – check out the “Upcoming Events” page to see where we’ll be each week selling our tasty treats on our stall. Most local shows around the Merseyside area, we will be accompanying mum and dad to so we can’t wait to see all our puppy pals again this year!
Woofs and hugs
