Sarah and Teddy are back running after Sarah’s injury over the summer and Teddy is loving it! They are running, on average, 5-7 miles each run and are trying (weather permitting) to get out twice a week to ensure they are delivering their mileage for the “Run Down Dementia Challenge”.
Buddy is always so interested when Teddy returns from a run. It is probably the only time he is without Teddy and so after an initial search of the house, to check the front door doesn’t lead to a secret room, he settles down and waits patiently with Trevor. Poor Teddy is tired when he returns and heads straight to the kitchen for a well-earned drink, whereas Buddy is ready for a full update on time, distance, blades of grass sniffed and people seen!
Teddy, however, looks forward to a nap after his drink.
Teddy is a great big brother and really shows his little brother what is expected of him. Buddy is regularly ‘told off’ for keeping clients in the entrance too long and destroying toys. Buddy really follows Teddy’s lead and at a recent trip to the groomer, despite having very little hair to be trimmed, Buddy insisted on having time on the grooming table to experience what Teddy does. The groomer kindly obliged by using blunt scissors to ensure he looked and felt as good as his big brother. Here’s an after photo showing just how proud the boys are of their recent pampering session!
As the weather turns colder this really is the dogs favourite time of the year, mainly because our clients with dogs often come to the clinic in their dog walking jackets – which often means dog treats in the pockets. Sometimes clients often bring in treats and toys which we are so grateful and appreciative of, people thinking of the dogs and bringing in treats for them.
Doggy advent calendars are bought, and the dogs have made a specific request for mince pies please! We have mince pies but these are very definitely for our clients. If you are passing by the clinic please pop in for a coffee (or tea) and a mince pie. The dogs happily enjoy any crumbs that might fall onto the floor!
