Yes,  I know I said the last blog was the last blog for the year (it sounds like a John Farnham “One Last Final Tour” promotion hehe!!) but lots of fun things have been happening at our place! Dogs Birthday party!  We have celebrated our first doggie birthday party!  Ted, a gorgeous little Lakeland Terrier turned three – even though I thought he was two – and so we celebrated in grand style.  There were games, party hats, party food for dogs (thanks Ted’s mum for all the extra treats and party hats), polite restrained eating, followed by mayhem and then party games!   Ted totally enjoyed his day and his present from us – although so did Bluebell Blossom – which meant the toy had to be rescued and put in a safe place!  Hope you enjoy the photos! This was after a big walk and then a game of chasing the hose to cool down!

Watching the dogs chase each other and play in the backyard, through the house, at the parks, beaches, creeks, bush walks and ovals and wherever else is brilliant as they all have so much fun. Even the quieter or more mature ones enjoy watching on.  Whether it is with toys, tennis balls, hosing and water in the clam shells or just chasing – they have so much fun – and then they collapse into a sleep for an hour or so, before starting up again.  Even the cats get in on the act and I have enjoyed seeing Peanut (our excellent ginger cat “host with the most”) welcome, play and roll around, chase and enjoy the guest cats.

On another note, we are currently looking after two dogs either on chemotherapy drugs or have taken them – you need to be so careful in administering these toxic medications and the owners have been wonderful in supplying all the appropriate information to us on the do’s and don’ts!   We also administer many different medications to dogs and cats (tablets, liquids and even injections) and we have learnt how to trick dogs and cats into taking all sorts of medicines for their various ailments – so far we are winning!

Our cat homestays is proving to be very popular and all the cats seem to be benefitting from all the extra space to run and play and explore and the home environment to stay in – along with heaps of attention and lots of cuddles!   Anyway, still trying to get my Christmas tree up (the box is out and the decorations are all ready to be put up) so maybe now is the time whilst the dogs are all enjoying a snooze before our afternoon walk – so sayonara till next year!  Oh and don’t forget to like me on Facebook!

    • Suzanne, it was such fun - I got a real kick out of it, as did Ted - he knew he was the "special one" on the day!
  3. Love your blog excellent. Especially telling everyone about the medications you administer the dogs that stay with you who are sick and still able to have a holiday with you. Wow if I was an owner of a sick dog I would be so relieved to know that your service provides that . The doggie party is out of this world. Who does that? Only the best doggy whisperer in town Bobby and that's you.
