Sunsets

A couple of months ago the Word Press Photo Challenge was ‘Rise/Set‘ and it was the first photo challenge I took part in: Photo Challenge: Rise/Set. Sunsets are my favourite times of day. Since getting Kira we’ve attempted hundreds of sunset pictures with a few being really good. With the weather being so hot recently we’ve been taking our walks later […]

Pet Cooling Mat

It’s been pretty hot these past few weeks and it’s set to continue. As part of our efforts to keep Kira cool we decided to invest in a ‘Pet Cooling Mat‘. We did this because we’d heard that Pet Cooling Mats were pretty good…if your dog likes them. Now on opening the box Kira ran off like it was going […]

Yuck, don’t give her that!

This is exactly what my friend said when I gave Kira egg shells to clean out (it’s also what I think quite often when I’m buying Kira food).

If we’re out on a walk we take our biodegradable bags with […]

But one of my favourite photos is from our trip to see my Nana down near Bournemouth. We were so lucky with the weather that […]

It’s So Fluffy!

So it’s finally started to get warmer but with this lovely change of weather comes a little bit of a fluff problem. Kira is moulting…a lot. I mean we normally vacuum the carpets once, twice a week but we are currently vacuuming daily…if not twice daily it’s ridiculous. With one brush we are taking out a small mountain of fur. […]

Dogs are for life

My sister recently got a puppy and Kira and I have spent a couple of days puppy sitting as we’re on Easter holidays. Lots of people love puppies. They’re so cute and fluffy and ill-proportioned, all ears and legs. And they pull at the heart strings. But I’m going to be honest I do not miss the puppy puppy stage. […]
