Nothing beats cuddles!


Hugs and cuddles come in many shapes, sizes and reasons.   They are good for the soul, especially when given by a devoted and faithful hound!

This is one spoilt Pup who loves a nightly cuddle up on your lap.

Our Pup


This little lady:

Keeps an eye on me when I am unwell.

Tries to use her cuteness to get tit bits, like in this photo when she wanted wine but did not get!

Loves lots of sofa time cuddles.

Is a big part of our family and we would be lost without her!

I would love to hear about the pets in your life.   Why not leave a comment below.
