  1. Bet you're thinking why on earth would you talk about poo bags, well I am thinking about the environment. I put a lot of effort into recycling and I have found out that it can take 1000 years for these plastic bags to degrade

    When I do poop patrol in my garden I use 2 carrier bags but now I have to pay 5p it got me thinking what are my alternatives? This is my opportunity to change for the good of the envirionment.

  2. Dogs can't talk, you may or may not have noticed.  However they can communicate, our job is to be able to understand it especially if there are kids involved.  I have a 3yr old nephew and I am teaching him the tell tale signs that the dogs are not happy with his actions.  If there is one thing people can learn from my blogs please let it be this.

    I think it is important for all dog owners to learn how dogs communicate, you will then be able to tell whether your dog is happy with certain situations or not, by looking at their body language and subtle movements.  We can then teach the children the signs of stress or threat.

  3. If you have a pet you understand but even some of my pet owning friends don't get me and think I'm mad.  This is because I travel all the way to Cardiff to a Physio for my dog.  Why?  Because they are the best and for me nothing but the best for my dogs.

    SmartClinic in Cardiff is one of the best in the UK for rehab and physio, now the condition that Queenie is in proves it.  She has a form of arthritis and was hobbling a lot plus her elbows were very swollen.  She has had a conditioning and exercise programme, had hydrotherapy, acupuncture and massage, concentrating on muscle build up of her triceps, core and quads.  She now has no swelling, nor does she limp, nor does she bunny hop down the stairs and she runs around with a new lease of life.
