How might Puppy's Mum be able to help you?

Pharaoh Hound Information

Do you have a dog, and have questions about how to keep your dog happy? Is your new puppy having trouble settling in? Are you looking for a new puppy and aren't sure where to look?

I would love to help you with any of these issues, and more. My husband and I have bred many puppies over the last twenty years, and every puppy born at our home is important to us. Whether the puppy became a show dog or a much loved pet, it always remained 'our' puppy to some extent. We always cared about the wellbeing of that puppy.

I would love to be there for you too, if you have a new dog or pup, or if you're thinking of getting one, I would love to help you make the right choices for yourself, your family and for your puppy or dog.

Horse Thoughts

I've been doing a lot of wandering around the internet, and around the inside of my head lately. I've posted some strange things on Facebook and elsewhere.

Today I was thinking about an author a dear friend had mentioned to me the other day. I Googled the author, Gillian Mears, and read the article back there, then I started thinking about my own childhood.

This is what I wrote. You can never convince me that creative writing is not therapeutic! Analyse this, I'd love to hear what you think.

"A Good Trainer Knows

I remember one time, when I was still at school, one of Dad’s horses was lame. She’d had an accident, but Dad felt it had been long enough ago that she should have been over it.

Dad asked me (possibly my brothers too – I can’t remember) to chase her around the yard a bit, gently, to keep her moving. Dad thought that the mare was scared her leg would hurt, so she limped in a way that didn’t impact on the injured leg.

We kept this up for a while, shooing her off, keeping her going, on and off for a few days. And, sure enough, within a week that mare was moving properly again, using the leg she had injured.

That happened over thirty years ago. It’s not surprising really, I guess, why I should think of it now. I’m keeping moving, and it doesn’t hurt a bit!"


So, do you have your own opinion about that? Your own story? I'd love to hear it - leave a comment!
