Blidworth Woods

This weekend we were determined to take advantage of the nice weather (and finally some time off together!) to get out and about. Unfortunately the weather was a little bit too nice and as temperatures here in Nottingham are hitting about 27 degrees our initial plan of a Saturday afternoon adventure was scrapped for a…

Go Jauntly

If you are anything like me then you just love to escape into the countryside to get lost. But that’s usually the problem…we actually get lost! A few weeks back me and Dan visited Broxa Forest in the North Yorkshire National Park. We had done our research and found a trail that we liked the…

Scarborough – A Weekend in Pictures

Last weekend we took a little trip to Scarborough to stay in the fantastic Ox Pasture Hall Hotel, you can read more about our stay on our blog post here. I wanted to share with you some of the other photos I took that weekend on our trips to Broxa Forest and Scarborough seafront. Broxa…

Ox Pasture Hall Hotel

This weekend we were lucky enough to be invited along to stay at the Ox Pasture Hall Hotel, a dog friendly hotel in Yorkshire. We had never taken Hendrix away for the weekend so we were very excited to see how he would get on staying away from home. I read quite a few dog…

What’s in the cupboard? – Vol 1

Hendrix tries so many different brands and types of treats it is getting impossible to keep up with blog posts for all of them! Therefore I have decided to start a monthly update of ‘What’s in the cupboard’ to share with you the treats we are currently enjoying. The Doggie Bakery We met the Doggie…

Emma Bearman Photography

Last weekend we spent the day with the talented Emma Bearman and her adorable companion Alfie. That name sounds familiar I hear you say?! Well that is because you have probably heard of Emma & Alfie through their blog Alfiebear. And if you haven’t then quite frankly, what are you playing at, go and take…

Nottingham’s Country Parks

I am very fortunate that living in Nottingham provides us with so many fun places to take Hendrix out for long walk, all right on our doorstep. This post looks at some of the Country Parks we have visited on our days out. Broxtowe Country Park About 5 minutes away from our house is Broxtowe…

Paws & Hounds

As spring is just around the corner we felt it was time for a collar upgrade. Our last collar was from the winter collection from the wonderful Boots & Bones but due to a hectic Christmas I never got around to sharing a blog post with you. Sorry Guys 😦  We have been on the look…

Crufts 2017

I have a confession to make, up until this year I was a Crufts virgin! Phew I feel so much better getting that off my chest. I have always watched it on TV and always thought it would be a great thing to experience in person. And I was not wrong! I had the Sunday…

Pancake Day

It’s that glorious time of the year again where we can stuff our faces with pancakes without feeling guilty about it. So get raiding those cupboards to see what magnificent combinations we can come up with! But why should your dog be left out of all the fun??? We tried and taste tested a recipe…

An Afternoon Walk

Finally we got some decent weather this afternoon (even though it was still freezing), so me and Hendrix took a stroll around the local Country Park while I had a play with my camera and newest lens. I can proudly say that all of these images were taken on fully manual mode, so I got…
