Tailor Made Walks

This is Zuma. Zuma is wonderfully special, partly because he is blind, but mostly because despite his blindness and severe arthritis, he is one of the most happy dogs I know. I take him on the same walk every time we go out (Darnford Park), so he is very familiar with the route and knows exactly what to expect along the way. The grass is kept short and there are big expanses of green for him to run on. Despite being unable to see he loves to run, and as long as I look out for any possible obstacles (mainly mole hills and rabbit holes) he runs on lead, with the wind in his hair! I talk to him as we go around the walk, so he knows I’m not far away. He is such a lovely dog and a real lesson to us all – he may be blind and have dodgy legs, but he enjoys life to the max!

Nero’s Blog

Hi, its me Nero. Been a while…….

Jacqui has been looking after me again this week, but with the weather so bad, I’ve just had to resort to entertaining myself indoors:

Hi. My name is Nero. Jacqui has been looking after me again this week. I really enjoy her visits. She always gives me some fuss and sometimes a brush, but most importantly, always feeds me! Staying in my own home with all my own stuff around me is great…I can play in my yellow tube, watch all my favourite nature programs and even use the laptop to blog! And it’s so nice to curl up on my favourite chair at the end of a long day!  I can’t tell you how much better than a cattery it is (partly because I’ve never been) but I’ve heard it can be pretty stressful. Anyway, I’m so grateful that Jacqui comes to visit, that I sometimes bring her a dead mouse to show her my appreciation. I think she really likes that.

Whittington Walk

….one of my favourite walks. The walk starts proper from opposite Whittington Primary School. Take the dirt track opposite the school and follow it until it bends sharply to the right. At this point take the footpath alongside a field to the woods. Go through the gate to the woods and take the path immediately to the right. You eventually come to a housing estate. There is a dog poo bin here (the only one on this walk). Turn right at the bin and follow along the side of the golf course until you come to the lane again. Turn right onto the lane and follow lane until you get back to the school.

New website and new blog!

Hi Everyone!

I’ve had my website ‘refreshed’ as you can see. It’s on SquareSpace now which means it’s much more usable on your phones and tablets. I will be posting on my blog regularly – so have a look once in a while to see the walks I’ve been on and any interesting pets I’ve been looking after. (I looked after a Degu last week for the first time. He was so cute and really loved his sand baths! For those that don’t know what a degu looks like – here is a photo of Charlie
