I wanted to write this blog post today to share with everyone that no one is perfect. We all make mistakes. We all have embarrassing moments. We all have cock ups. Okay so that sounds pretty deep right? And could … Continue reading
Well I’m as ready as I’ll ever be.
I’ve got my t-shirt & new running shorts (don’t worry I’m not running in wellies).
My running has been progressing really well and I’ve done leg strength work to help with the hills.
I can’t run 10k non-stop yet but I’ll do the best I can and will finish one way or the other.
All for a charity I don’t have much to do with but absolutely love.
Collie’s are a special breed. They are sensitive, complicated souls that are often misunderstood and end up in rescue, but then tend not to cope well with kennels.
Border Collie Trust GB really understand them and do their best for every dog which passes through their doors.
Yet due to HS2 all of their hard work is going to be disrupted and they need to find thousands of pounds to relocate their rehoming centre to a new site.
I couldn’t not do something to help. So through these past 6 months of running, whenever it got too hard or was too cold or raining, I kept going knowing I needed to do something to help this special charity.

The Cocker Spaniel is one of the most popular breeds of dog in the UK, especially since the photos appeared of Prince William and Kate’s gorgeous working cocker Lupo. It was no impulse buy that resulted in Zebby joining our … Continue reading
I’ve been volunteering as Beaver Scout Leader for my local Scout Group for nearly 10 years now, but I don’t see myself as a volunteer, I just see it as something I do. My hobby. You should enjoy your volunteering … Continue reading
Can you believe Zebby is 1 today! Where has that time gone?! 10 months ago we brought the little whirlwind home and it completely changed our lives. As a puppy he was sweet, playful, thoughtful, sensitive and crazy! He approached … Continue reading
When I started the Couch to 5k program in January I really started to look in to Canicross with more interest. For anyone who doesn’t know, Canicross is a sport where you run with your dog attached to you. It’s … Continue reading
The teething stage is a nightmare Puppies explore with their mouths and need to chew as their teeth grow. Unfortunately this means that your fingers, hands, arms, jumpers, trousers, chair legs, skirting board, sofa, etc take the brunt of it. … Continue reading
Two years after we conquered Scafell Pike the four of us set off for the weekend to tick off another peak from our wish list. I’m not any fitter than I was when I did Scafell, and actually due to … Continue reading
When we want to change a dogs behaviour there’s often a lot of different tools and options we can use to try and do this. One of the most common dilemmas we can find ourselves in is the choice between … Continue reading
Today we all took a break from work & home and ventured out for the day to the Cheshire Show. Thankfully it was slightly cooler than recent days this week but still pretty hot, so I took Guinness’ Ruffwear Cool … Continue reading
My monthly favourite posts have been not so monthly at the moment. Then I spotted a fabulous idea on OkGoAgility (I’ll talk about them more later) and they had swapped from monthly to seasonal favourite posts, so I am going … Continue reading
As the day I pick Zebedee up draws closer I’ve been getting prepared for the addition of a new puppy in to the house. It started off with buying some second hand puppy harnesses when I saw them come up … Continue reading
I love a good game fair, nothing beats wandering around a field in boots looking at stalls of outdoor clothing and handcrafted sculptures, plus watching fantastic displays of horse riding, sheepdog training, motorbikes and more. There are plenty of events … Continue reading
It wasn’t until I was watching the agility at Crufts last weekend that I realised I do miss agility. Guinness and I have been retired for over a year now and although I help at the Dig It Shows here … Continue reading
I started this morning with the intention of vlogging my day. Ever since I moved to the farm I’ve being thinking about doing some daily vlogs. But then my camera battery was dead and I’m still not so sure about … Continue reading
This week I suddenly had an idea for a fun challenge… how many different tricks can your dog do in 1 minute? I set up my camera, set a timer on my phone and off we go. 16! I’m quite … Continue reading
I don’t do early mornings, so for me to be pulling up outside of my friend’s house at 7am in the dark to head off for a dog training conference I must either be ill or expecting something brilliant. And … Continue reading
I spotted an offer on facebook to get a box of Yum.ee for £1 so I thought I’d give it a go. It was simple enough to sign up and order a box with the discount code and then cancel the … Continue reading
A friend of mine has never walked Snowdon and as she was home from Australia for a few months we found a weekend free and off we went. I’ve walked Snowdon twice before, using the Llanberis path both times. The first … Continue reading
I find that I hardly ever change the dog items I use so have decided to write about my everyday and overall favourite items. I’ve left a link for most of the products at the bottom of this post, however … Continue reading
