I am setting all that read this a challenge. Perform all the following Dog Duties every day for 31 Days. It doesn’t matter when you read this just do them all every day for 31 straight days. It may be tough or maybe not, but if you can stick with it I guarantee you will have a happier and better behaved Dog. You will also have a tremendous sense of accomplishment. It’s a month out of a lifetime so no excuses, get to it. Smile. Owning a Dog is a privilege and never forget that. Give your Dog a […]

Over time these very good intentions seem to have gone out the window. It is becoming a bit of a free for all. If I […]
I seem to be fighting a losing battle when it comes to the girls and the furniture. No sooner do i turn my back than some kind of secret conspiracy ensues. It’s like – “Hey, he’s not looking Ssshhh. Jet, you take the futon, Daisy you get the left side of the sofa and I (Fay) will take the centre and the right, quick he’s coming, pretend to be asleep.” SNORE…. At least that’s how it seems!
