Gaudi 1487


Gaudi - Dog of the Month

Gaudi is a handsome 2 year old Bernese Mountain Dog who lives in Colehill. 

Susan told us 'He loves to play but due to his size many dogs run or behave aggressively [because they are scared].  He loves fox poo' - mmm we've heard of a few with that particular foible!  

Favourite walks include Cannon Hill Forest, Bytheway Field, Delph Woods and Hengistbury Head - you can find most of those on our 'Out & About' pages.  Hengistbury Head will be on there soon, a very popular place for many members!

Rio is a water-loving German Shepherd from Bransgore. 

One of his favourite places is St Catherine's Hill in Christchurch.

Bear 1481



Five year-old Bear from Dorchester is another water-baby, so the coast and rivers are a favourite.  Thorncombe woods is another,  brimful of bluebells in late April & May, whilst Puddletown Forest, the Dorset coast path, Studland, and the Dorset Ridgeway are just some of the other wonderful walks that Bear enjoys.

Favourite walks include Wareham Forest, Upton Country Park, Bovington, and Bere Regis.

Finn 1485


Well, we can see that three year-old Finn is doing rather well!  And doesn't red look good with that midnight coat!


Pebbles 1483


Pebbles from Corfe Mullen is a beautiful Cavachon of 10 months old. 

She can often be found walking around Upton Country Park - I bet she's enjoying the  the new off-lead fields.

These two are another pair who appreciate the open space and sea at Hengistbury Head.
