We received a surprise cheque in the post last week. Not a lottery style win or anything, but a couple of hundred pounds that we weren’t expecting. So, only one thing for it – ‘save half, spend half!’. Adelle got a pair of new shoes, Justin needs some new jeans – and Fudge got a lovely new collar & lead set.
They were ordered from Suzy Q based in Hove. Not on the High Street give 5% of the sale price to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. Lovely attention to detail in the packaging – nice tissue paper wrapping, pretty labels and a dog treat!
The collars are very well made – and customised too which is included in the price. Just one word of caution – if you have a dog that pulls very hard, we have known this type of clip-in fastening to pop open suddenly. This might be an issue if your dog has an aggressive streak, runs into busy roads or heads off into the hills as soon as it gets chance!
We went for the vibrant orange – he might be ten years old, but Fudge still likes to turn heads. You can almost hear him saying, “Don’t I look handsome… not bad for an old man”. The George Clooney of the canine world!

Once again, Fudge is throwing a tantrum. “I WANT AN ETSY LIST!”, he howled.
“OK, OK!”, we relent. “What do you want to do?”, we begged.
“Everybody loves a Weimaraner!”, he wimpered.
“Have it on our desk by Monday morning!”, we barked.
You get the picture…
Fudge insists one being given the opportunity to voice (bark?) his opinion on canine Christmas matters, so we’ve allowed him to guest edit this penultimate Christmas Countdown post.
He’s scoured the internet and wishes to share his findings with his doggie buddies. We are pleased to bring you his carefully curated collection…

We have a very special Wednesday Wish this week.
Fudge, the centre of our universe, was run over by a car on Saturday morning. Our local vet was closed, so we had to rush to their Halifax branch to get him seen. The prognosis wasn’t good – amputation, euthanasia or an emergency orthopaedic operation. There was only one option that we were willing to choose – squeamish readers may want to look away now!
The operation was too specialised for the vets at West Mount so they had to refer us elsewhere. A fantastic vet, Nick Blackburn, of Calder Vets in Dewsbury did an incredible job inserting metal pins & plates into the broken bones in his front left leg. Nick has been great at keeping us informed of everything that was happening and (tried to anyway!) put us at ease.
Fudge was allowed home on Tuesday night – groggy, disoriented and completely off his food – it’s going to be a long, slow recovery. We wish him to be all better soon!
