Love Dogs... Love Nature

June 2012's new members


Bobby's family have a story to tell:

'Bobby is a very loved & cherished dog to us a miracle that he is still with us because on Friday January 13th 2012 he fell off the cliff at Old Harry Rock chasing a seagull, & he only suffered a broken toe & a chipped tooth, so we never go anywhere near any cliffs & stick to the level ground.'

We've heard similar stories from all around the Dorset coast, but the ending hasn't always been so happy.  The best advice when you're on or approaching cliffs is to use a lead, even if your dog doesn't usually chase things and you think they'll avoid the cliff edge.  Perhaps the excitement of the sea breezes goes to our dogs' heads as well as ours!

Well thank goodness for Bobby's lucky escape!  Now he'd like to introduce you to June's new members...
