Liebster Award Nomination!

I am heinously late in responding to this lovely post by Katie over on DogTailsBlog. Katie runs a pet services business in Hull, UK, and has an adorable German Shepherd named Sam. She very kindly nominated me for this award, and I finally find myself with a spare few hours this gloomy Sunday morning, so…

I got Vulpe her very own Yellow Dog bandana quite a long time ago, but for some reason I’ve never made use of it before. As part of my coming to terms with having a reactive dog (and concentrating more on helping her to live a stress-free life, rather than trying desperately to ‘fix’ her)…
