Springing into Summer
What a year its been so far over at LWD. We were due to move in early March but eventually after lots of starts and stops we’re all finally in our house in the lovely village of Saughall. Ironically I grew up here! Its taken a few more weeks to get everything settled and for … Continue reading "Springing into Summer"Read More
Winter woofs, first snow and ice.
In the last week of 2020 and first of 2021 we actually had a fair bit of snow and proper freezing weather. This is something we’re not too used to being almost at sea level. Having celebrated our first Christmas with both the spaniels – including with their very own dog compatible dinner – we … Continue reading "Winter woofs, first snow and ice."Read More
Autumnal beanies, new smells and sights
What a year 2020 has been – and just like the rest of it for us and our furry family – Autumn seems to have come and gone in a blur. A consistent high has been the presence of Chewy and Willow.

Teaching a dog new tricks – Swim! Swim!
In the first part of our series we took a look at housetraining, so for the next, we’d like to talk about one of the joys of rescuing – that is seeing your new friend(s) grow in confidence as they experience new sensations and situations.

Teaching a dog new tricks – housetraining.
Probably the most common question we get asked about rehoming a rescue dog is “how difficult is it to house train them?” It’s a fair question, but before we attempt to answer it may we suggest you ask yourself another couple of questions first? As patronising as this sounds you only need to look at … Continue reading "Teaching a dog new tricks – housetraining."Read More
You can teach a middle aged dog new tricks.
The 6th July was Chewy’s six month gotcha day and we thought it would be great as he’s now been an inseparable part of our lives for over half a year to mark it by looking back at just how far he’s come. Since he became part of our family, its hard to recognise the … Continue reading "You can teach a middle aged dog new tricks."Read More
Finally we’re back out and about
With everything in lockdown we’ve obviously had to cancel the last few month’s visit to our friends at CAESSR – although given our past rate of adopting (2 out of 3 visits) this may not have been a bad thing! In the meantime we thought you might like to be kept up to date with … Continue reading "Finally we’re back out and about"Read More

As you know when we popped over to see our friends over at CAESSR earlier this month we brought back an extra set of paws!
