I wonder if breed makes a difference? I’m betting wolf fur is on the wiry s ...

I have got it back, albeit a different shape. I don’t know how whether to try to bash it back into shape or just buy another. It’s a very exposed site, so I wasn’t expecting a winter out of it, ...

She needs someone there who's not mom.

She really, really hates any sort of transition from one thing to another, its a nightmare to get her started on anything! I've got her set up with a tent and a blanket so on, so she can help a bit an ...

I have also almost no hay fever this year, and am wondering whether pollution is a factor. It’s usually crippling (and has landed me in hospital before). I think there are other factors, but it’s ...

Done all that, and more. Bizarrely, she was quite happy to go up and shovel compost in the cold, but now it’s a case of planting pumpkins and a bit of weeding in the sunshine, she’s a nightmare to ...
