Dogs cooling down at the seaside
Here in the UK weve been basking in glorious sunshine. So on Sunday we got up early and took the dogs to the beach.
For those that know the south coast of England, thisis the stretch between Newhaven and Seaford. Its a pebbly beach alright no soft sand for us Im afraid but it was low tide and the beach was at its best.
Living in Brighton, a very busy south coast resort, its hard to find a dog friendly beach where there arent hords of people with picnics,...

Just thought Id introduce you to a new member of the family!
An older friend of mine has very sadly just passed away and her 11 year old Dalmatian needed a new home.
We asked around, sent some emails to people I thought might be interested and I even posted about it on the main Out And About With Your Dog website.
But no-one came forward and I didnt want Portia going back to a rescue centre which was where shed come from 3 years ago.
So after a long chat with hubby, we walked her in the morning...

I love Christmas Wreaths. They make front doors look so warm and inviting. So this year I decided to invite a few friends round and have a go at making our own.
I bought the wire rings from eBay, as well as the binding wire, cinnamon sticks and dried lotus heads, but since our daily dog walk takes us through beautiful woods, I decided to source everything else from there.
So while Georgie and Jessie chased the squirrels, I took my secateurs and collected a few choice items holly, fir cones,...

Summer is here well for today at least!
Today was one of those perfect days and Im sure the dogs agreed too. Though to be honest they seem happy in pouring rain, wild winds, heavy snow basically they just love being out and about.
The blackberries are in season earlier than usual due to this years very hot spring and the dogs learnt long ago that free food is abundant in the bushes.
We had Millie walking with us today, the darker of the two Golden Retrievers and she was also helping...

The mist was thick this morning as we drove along the coast road from Brighton towards Friston Forest.
But it made the gorgeous forest all the more atmospheric.
We were meeting the handsome Monty, a four year old Golden, and our friends Ali and Nat, for our regular Friston Frenzy.
Friston Forest, nearest town Eastbourne, is a fantastic place to walk dogs. Be aware that youll need small change for the car park at the time of writing it was 2 for two hours.
The trails through the forest are marked...

Yesterday morning we had the pleasure of hooking up with Rhian from Brighton Dog Photography and her beautiful Pug, Boo.
I introduced them to Sheepcote Valley, one of my favourite Brighton Dog Walks such a treat to be able to let the dogs run free and not be worried by traffic etc. On top of that there are amazing views of the sea towards Rottingdean and Ovingdean. So good for the soul!
As you can see from the photos on this page, Rhian is a top class photographer, knowing instinctively how to...

Overnight heavy snowfall in Brighton has turned the centre of town into a beautiful car free zone.
All trains in and out of Brighton have also been cancelled so transport has pretty much come to a standstill. And unlike last year thereve been council workers clearing pavements and roads around the station thank you guys great job
Seeing as we couldnt do our normal walk we headed for St Nicholas Rest Garden which is about 5-10 minutes away and Georgie and Jessie played in around 8 powdery...

Dog-friendly hotels are becoming ever more popular as owners realise they can take their dogs on holiday and stay in some rather lovely places to boot.
Here in Sussex were not short of hotels but a truly dog-friendly establishment is hard to find.
In this post Id like to feature a first class example of what it means to be a dog-friendly hotel The Silverdale in Seaford, East Sussex.
Describe your hotel and its location. We are an Edwardian guest house in the centre of Seaford town centre which...
