March fun

Somehow I’ve gotten five whole months behind with blogs, eeek!!! So… happy Christmas, happy new year etc. etc.

When I haven’t been walking dogs around Whickham or at the beach I’ve been spending a lot of time on my Rose Filtered and LEAPUP Etsy shops. I’ve spent quite a bit of time before Christmas designing the menus for Jasper’s Coffee House in Keswick and displaying artwork for sale which has been very exciting! Trying to set up two new businesses has caused me to get a little bit behind with everything else in my life… ooops! I love being a dog walker , it’s the perfect job for me. However over the last couple of months I’ve reduced my number of doggies to give me a little bit more time – it was a difficult decision but the right decision to make as it means less dogs on each walk and a more manageable day for me and it feels great to have improved the balance between working in my studio and being outside in the fresh air.

Anyway with all this going on I’m sooo behind with pictures but here is a little look at what the doggies have been up to this March, they’ve been awesome as ever – 99% of the time 😉 – and we’ve been having far too much fun, with basic training and games and especially on our trips to the beach 🙂

A trip to Druridge Bay

It’s been a lovely half term, with lots of the doggies on their holidays it’s been a real treat to have a bit more time so we managed a trip up to Druridge Bay. The weather was cold and cloudy, a very crisp autumnal feel and we had a few spots of rain… this led to the added bonus of having a deserted beach once we got away from the tourists around the car park area… bliss! The doggies had lots and lots of space to really stretch their legs… a perfect trip the beach.

Autumn days

A lovely week of walkies, some of my fave moments included Benni meeting a little shih tzu buddy called Bobby and little Molly getting well, about as dirty as a dog can get. It was also really great to finally have Jess out with the other dogs now that we’ve got her over her fear of the car too… overall a very good week and of course loving the autumn colours! ❤ ❤ ❤
