What? You Don’t Own A Dog Seat Belt Harness?

Here in Spain it is the law that all Dogs must have a Dog Car Harness, a Dog Seat Belt or be caged in the boot (trunk?) when travelling in vehicles. I was reminded of the importance of this the other day when we were on an infrequent outing.  A car passed us with two fairly large Dogs jumping all over the place in the back of the car, and the front passenger was shouting like mad at them to calm down! The dangers of this are all too apparent but it is one of those small, inexpensive things […]

A Good Dog Day………………………………….until.

She lives somewhere sensible near to the ocean and with nice easy access. We on the other hand live up a Catalan mountain at 500m along a 2 KM dirt track only accessible with a 4X4. We all got in the car and as I am on a roll with car problems of late it wouldn’t start. I […]

My Dog Is Making Me Look Bonkers!

Recently i have been taking all three dogs in the car with me which is normally OK.

Daisy is fine at home and Jet the puppy – well i haven’t left her all day yet but i am guessing she would get up to a bit of mischief as she is still only a little pup. All three dogs are on the back seat […]
