London: Dog Friendly Hair Salon – Jo Hansford

June 24, 2015 Dogs

Since I never, ever go in direct sunlight without a sunhat, it’s become inevitable that my once all natural blonde-ness needs a little helping hand. (There’s no point in pretending that at my age I am completely blonde by mother nature’s gift.) It’s a shame really, but I’d rather substitute three hours in the salon chair […]

London: A Hampstead Heath Sunday with the dogs

June 13, 2015 Dogs

(The Mens’ Bathing Pond on Hampstead Heath last Sunday.)   I’ve been in Detroit since Thursday afternoon and am little disappointed to discovered that the predicted 25C+ temperatures haven’t materialised – and that the weather was nicer back in London last weekend. Although Detroit is an extraordinary place in any weather – it’s been an eye-opening trip […]

London: Dog Friendly Restaurant, Pub & Place Guide

March 24, 2015 Dogs

(Lettice, observing my lunch – mushroom gnocchi – at Market, Camden.) Darling Posetta Baddog RIP was most definitely not a dog who went places. She wasn’t interested in socialising: her main focus was her family, food and tennis balls, and we hung out on Hampstead Heath and in the Regent’s Park. Not so with Princess Lettice. […]

Sending Posetta Baddog Squirrel Chasing in the Sky

March 19, 2015 Dogs

I was sitting in a tiny palm-thatched bar, watching a tropical storm whip the sea into white-crested waves on a small island off the coast of Phuket, when my sister telephoned me from London.

Visiting Crufts 2015…

March 13, 2015 Dogs

(My sister with two Standard Wire Haired Dachshunds and Lettice’s nose peeking out from her lap.) Unless we are counting the village fete, and the Dog with the Waggiest Tail competition, I had never attended a dog show until last weekend. It’s a world I knew next to nothing about but I love dogs, my sister […]

Appearing on Hoxton Radio on Sam & Helen’s Ladies What Brunch show (with Lettice)

February 21, 2015 Dogs

I had ALL the fun with comedians Sam and Helen on their Saturday morning radio show, Ladies What Brunch on Hoxton Radio. It was the business. I wasn’t sure if they’d be scary or not, so I took arrived with reinforcements: Lettice under one arm, and a plate of just-out-of-the-oven chocolate chunk cookies from Friends, […]

Pottles on Watergate Bay Beach in Cornwall

January 13, 2015 Dogs

Watergate Bay in Cornwall is one of the places that Holly and I have loved to take Posetta Baddog for long, sandy walks. P Bad loves digging holes, eating seaweed, and chasing and retrieving anything that is vaguely tennis ball-shaped, (and the latter definition stretches to include rocks, pebbles, driftwood, and sticks), so a long, […]

The Dog Box (Solvit Tagalong Booster Seat)

November 19, 2014 Dogs

Transporting a little dog in a car can be very dangerous: if you stop suddenly, there is an enormous risk that braking will cause the dog to be flung forward off its seat. Best case is that it just falls off, worst that it is propelled through the windscreen. Either way is Not Good. Although […]

How to have a happy dog & no scaredy cats this fireworks season

November 4, 2014 Dogs

(Coat details at bottom of post.) Letty the miniature Dachshund is only just one, and we are quite concerned as to how she will react on Bonfire Night (the 5th of November for my American friends, but more often celebrated on the following Friday or Saturday night). She grew up in the country and, whilst […]
