When life gets in the way 😬🙄

Sorry about the lack of blog updates we have had a stressful few adventures over the last couple of weeks!

A will give a little potted history about what we have been up to the last few week to catch you all up!

Since our last post Amos has passed his Kennel Club Good Citizen Bronze Test – which we are very very proud of him for! He has now moved up to the Silver classes which he is doing very well in.

We have been on an adventure to Loggerheads in Wales, where the boys got to explore the dried up river bed, which made for lots of interesting sniffs and smells. We also had a little climb which Toby thoroughly enjoyed!

We went for a disastrous adventure to Quarry Bank Mill – which is somewhere I would be happy to never return to!

The walk was lovely and the area was really nice, but we came across far too many rude dog walkers for me to want to return.

Amos can be noise reactive on walks – and let’s be honest who can blame him? He normally has a woof or two and then calms down, there were so many people who stared at him, made rude comments or just had no manners and allowed their dogs to run into him – which is a pet peeve of mine anyway, even worse for a poor dog that can’t see what is approaching him .. but his lack of sight doesn’t and shouldn’t mean that he doesn’t get to explore new places and experience the new smells and sounds that come with it!

Following that disastrous adventure I was a blubbering wreck so wasn’t in the right frame of mind to write about it (the above is the short version of that story!!)

In more positive news, we have found a little secret woodland near our house – so the boys can have a morning sniffari every morning nice and early before they begin their day – which they are both enjoying!

Last weekend we went for a mini adventure to the Cloud in Congleton which is a lovely walk – we went super early to try and avoid as many people as possible as I didn’t want a repeat of previous weeks.

Amos is such a good mountain goat, he has the odd bump on the walk but he handles uneven terrain really well and he really enjoys the sniffs and sounds he hears whilst he is out and about!

We were rewarded with beautiful views and a really peaceful walk – I managed to get lots of nice pictures of both boys!

The boys have been taking turns coming to work with me on a Sunday for the past few months too – which is doing Amos’ socialisation great as he is experiencing lots of new noises and smells whist he is playing receptionist!

Last week was Amos’ turn and as usual he’s fit for nothing when he comes home from work so Toby and I headed out for a little bit of we’ll deserved one on one time!

I will be back to regular blogging from now – Promise!

Thanks for reading! ❤️

  1. So sorry you experienced such difficult, rude dog owners. Our daughter has a rescue who experiences some anxiety on leash. They have spent many hours with personal trainers & ensuring proper halters etc. He is a beautiful boy who tries so hard to not get upset when he sees other dog on leash but occasionally he just can’t contain his bark. I know the people of which you are speaking!

  2. Cant believe people were so unthinking and rude towards you all. You are doing amazing work and you should be feel so good about it. Glad you got back out there with dear Amos and hopefully you can find nicer people and dogs to meet in the future.

  3. Thank you for updating us on the excellent progress of Amos. He is such a capable dog and with the help of you, and the canine guidance of Toby, he will succeed in having a better life. The other dog walkers are thoroughly thoughtless and uncaring. I have been called a Beagle type thing, as well as moth bitten before. I have a scar on my back right leg. I’m not pure beagle. I am still loved to pieces. Its not easy sometimes to laugh it off as someone being ignorant or thoughtless. You continue to do all the wonderful things for Toby & Amos, we will continue to be thankful to you and love your boys.
