My Dog's Recovery from Meningitis

Cooper's Progress…  It’s been almost two months since Cooper was diagnosed with Meningitis so I thought it was time I give you all an update. In my last post I mentioned how Cooper became extremely depressed when he was on a high…

My Dog Has Meningitis

Two weeks ago our 12 month old Golden Retriever, Cooper, was diagnosed with Steroid Responsive Meningitis-Arteritis. What were the signs that my dog had Meningitis? A few months ago Cooper was not himself. He is usually a boisterous…

Cooper turns One!

 I cannot believe that this time last year I was at the vet with Cooper’s breeders, watching his mum, Lara, give birth to 7 beautiful pups – one of which is now such a big part of our family. Wow how time flies! We only took Cooper…

A big lesson learnt…

I learnt a big lesson yesterday and I need to share it with you guys… I took Cooper to go and visit my Aunty and Uncle’s dog, Ollie the Groodle. Ollie is only 1 so between he and Cooper, their energy is pretty crazy and hyper. Anyway,…

Our baby muma… Lara!

So Back to Our Story...

Our story is proof that if you want to get a particular pup from a good breeder,  it doesn’t always happen straight away – you need to be patient. It’s not something to rush into. You will hopefully have your dog for 10-16 years so it…

My obsession with dogs started way back!

My story began when I was a little girl... For years I begged my parents to let me get a dog but they just wouldn't budge. I nagged and I nagged. My whole life revolved around getting a dog. I lay in bed every night praying that a dog would…
