It's a tricky time of year for anyone with a dog who doesn't like fireworks. Actually, that doesn't quite cover it. Fireworks are tricky at any time of year for dogs who don't like them, but November is an especially difficult time. We see countless videos and photos of dogs quaking with fear around Bonfire… Continue reading Fireworks: An answer?
At some point, every dog owner gets frustrated with their dog. Maybe something minor, like them not coming when called, or something a bit more drastic, like tearing your favourite armchair to shreds when you’re not there. What you do in these situations is often just between you and your four walls (and the dog). … Continue reading Our thoughts on #BrookeHouts
A week or so ago, a chap called Peter Egan, did an interview with the Radio Times. This chap is an actor and self-proclaimed animal rights activist. In this interview, the actor (and animal rights activist) questioned whether Crufts and show dogs in general is nothing more than a dangerous beauty pageant.

We’re going to have to suspend the imagination for just a moment. Clearly @chukkabennett isn’t actually the dog himself typing away. Though I’ve suspected for a long time that he can read, he clearly doesn’t actually type his own tweets. And anyway, if he could, they’d be in Welsh. This dog has over 3,000 followers… Continue reading What has Social Media ever done for us (dogs)?

It's been a while. A week after Crufts, it snowed. I ate some snow which had been poisoned with weedkiller/antifreeze and was rushed to the Vets to be put on a drip for a few days, get it all out of my system. They shaved my leg fur for the drip on one leg (they… Continue reading Back on the (Chalk)Block
Chuck's Mummy here! I don't often write long ranty posts, but I'm going to, to stand alongside every dog show handler, breeder, and dog. I don't really care if anyone agrees or disagrees but this article makes me absolutely FURIOUS... and here's why: 1) You cannot compare the cruelty of a bullring to Crufts or indeed… Continue reading A response to PETA’s disruption of Crufts…
What an experience! I loved every second - my tail was wagging, I was giving everyone lots of kisses and cuddles, mum felt sick with nerves and I came second in my class! You can see the results listed here - I'm Tough Cookie at Bolhaus. It was a long, long day for the humans. … Continue reading Crufts 2018
The Crufts passes arrived yesterday in the post. It makes everything rather real, all of a sudden. In a mere 17 days' time, I shall be in the ring at Crufts. I am one of 39 Welsh Terriers competing, and I'm under no illusions of being awarded any success. I'm just happy to be part… Continue reading Countdown to Crufts
