Love Dogs... Love Nature

Aug 2013's new members

Maddy v1


Maddy is an unusual Tibetan Spaniel - Maltese cross. Here she is luxuriating on her regal purple cushions but really she loves to be nowhere better than romping along streams!  She's a North Dorset girl, enjoying the Shaftesbury and Melbury Hills area.

Keeva v1



Keeva is just 9 weeks old and lives in Middlesex but Tracy tells us that they just love Dorset so will be bringing her here at least 4 times a year

Bailey v1


and here's someone else who will be another frequent visitor - little Bailey, who is a lovely mix of one thing and another and just 6 months old, he comes from Surrey so his usual walks are in Windsor Great Park.

Bella v1


Bella is a lab/beagle cross who can be worried by other dogs but is gentle and soppy around people - as we can see!  Looks like she might be thinking he's getting a little heavy for this lark though!  Hannah says she likes to hear about more places that are accessible for dog walking with pushchairs - hopefully our Out & About pages will help with that, especially as the information on there continues to grow. 

To find out about sites that have at least some paths suitable for pushchair and wheelchair access and easier walking just go to the Out & About page and put 'yes' on the search filter that says 'sites with easier access'

Patch v1


Patch is a little doggy who covers a big territory!  He loves Southbourne Overcliff, Hengistbury Head and the New Forest.

Dug the Pug v1


Dug the Pug - wonderful name for this inscrutable little soul!  He visits Whitecliff  and also hops across the water to the Purbecks, he clearly enjoys the coast!

Tia v1


Hands up anyone who didn't say 'arrrr' ....... anyone? 

This is Tia, a tiny Jack Russell cross who joined in July, patiently learning life skills... she'll soon be off to romp in Wareham Forest.
