Shuffling The Pack

Well where to start about this week, it's been a little fraught for one reason or another and to be completely honest, I'm finding it hard to be positive about it at all.  Still it is almost over thankfully. All I will say is that where a pack of dogs is involved, whether it is a pack of 2 or a pack of 8, their position in the pack is extremely important to them.  We as humans, have to be careful how we inadvertently behave or do small gestures which mean nothing to us but to dogs they mean a lot.  We totally forget that dogs communicate via body language as they cannot tal...

Heaving The Hounds Round Hever Castle

Early Sunday morning, up with the birds again, pile the hounds into the Furry Dogmobile.......destination - Hever Castle for Castle Canines. Protests from Mr Furry about why we can't ever have a lazy Sunday like everyone else.  Not in this house sunshine!  It's go, go, go!  I explain to him that being active is healthy and keeps you young unless of course, you die from exhaustion which, to be fair, could be a possibility! So we arrive at Hever and unload the hounds.  Usual expelling of "aahhhhss" and "oohhhhsss" following by "4 of them?!".  Off we go the ticket of...

A Houseful Of Hounds

Well I'm not going to even mention the weather although being British we do love to talk about it don't we?  We seem to be having alternate sunny days followed by a monsoon but then it is the school Summer holidays so what do we expect?  I said I wasn't going to mention it but there I have! Anyway, what have we been up to this week?  Well of course, we have had the arrival of our house-guest Lily Basset who is staying for a couple of weeks while her family are enjoying themselves Stateside.  Lily has pretty much slotted into the pack and dare I say it?...........going from ...

Release The Hounds

I was very lucky to have a rare day off on Friday to celebrate my Birthday and even though the predicted forecast looked awful, the sun shone for me.  Me and Mr Furry decided to take the hounds to Sheffield Park Gardens near The Bluebell Railway which is part of the National Trust.  There are a few good walks around the grounds but dogs need to be kept on the lead due to cattle.  To be honest, it is safer to leave my hounds on leads near cattle, not because they would chase them but because it is a prime opportunity to roll in cow pats!  As it was, Mr Buddy-Love did a good ...

Thunderbolts, Birthdays & Bassets

I spoke too soon about my wardrobe choices and the weather didn't I?  I got very caught out on Wednesday's group walk in my shorts! Ah well, never mind, the gardens needed it (isn't that what they say?). Again, the dogs never seem to mind what is happening with the weather as long as they can run around and have a good play with their friends.  Mind you, with  the very electric storms we had on Tuesday night, I'm sure there were a lot of very frightened pooches around.  Poor things.  I myself was scared enough as the lightening was so bright it seemed to light up the w...
