Guard dogs… yeah, right!

The slightest hint of a leaf rustling in the garden and there is a stampede of yelling dogs flying through the house to protect us from the possible threat. As I leave for work every day,I don’t have to worry about my family or possessions, while leaving them in the protective custody of these vicious, ankle … Continue reading

My snuggly-buggly

Two years ago we were chosen by a lovely family to take in their precious pup when their lifestyle and her were no longer compatible. Within a few weeks we had broken her of the “no dogs on the furniture” rule from her previous life and she took to the couch and the bed very … Continue reading

Bestest toy ever… and now its gone

Getting to know the locals in Barcelona

Wandering around Barcelona, we happened across this little guy.  We stopped to say hola but he didn’t want to know us… how rude! And a little bit of related humour… A butcher walks into a lawyer’s office and casually asks the lawyer, “If a Dachshund came into my shop, and stole a roast, would I … Continue reading
