Rollie & Daisy May - Dec Dogs of the Month

Rollie has just retired from racing so Trudi is just introducing her to a whole new life with her and Daisy May.  They live in Fordingbridge but are frequent visitors to Dorset.

Daisy May is a lovely 11 year-old Jack Russell who is helping Rollie to discover and enjoy some of her favourite places in Dorset.

Some greyhounds have a very hard life after retirement so Rollie is one of the lucky ones - you can find out more at Greyhound Rescue West of England's website.


Barney - January 2016 Dog of the Month

What a smashing photo of Barney the Staffordshire Bull Terrier!

Barney is two and a half and lives with David in Bridport, their favourite walks are around West Bay and the paths that lead to it.

Purdy 1622

Purdy & Cara

Sarah told us their stories:

CARA an amber & white lurcher: "Cara is a classic couch potato. Life has been very unkind to her. She was a rescue dog who was emaciated and in a poor state & pregnant. We have had her about 2 years. Finally getting more confident and sings for her supper. Doesn't like running;  prefers to just meander along at my side.
PURDY a black lurcher- Totally opposite to Cara;  lively. crazy, sleeps on her back with her legs in the air. Had her from 9 weeks...she picked us. One of a litter of 12. Such a happy dog that she wagged her tail so hard she broke it on various occasions. Vet said only thing to do was to dock 1/3. Now wags like a metronome. A joy to have around."
