    Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Jilly
    Top dog Jilly was Crufts 2013 Best in Show – and then her delighted owner revealed she had won her last show. Breeder Gavin Robertson said he had decided to retire the Basset Griffon Vendeen just months before Crufts.
    “I just wanted her to enjoy the whole occasion. It’s her last show. I’d already decided months ago that I would retire her no matter what she got so it’s fantastic, you couldn’t ask for a script like that. What a way to stop.”

  • Dogs with Black Tongues
    By on February 18th, 2013 | No Comments Comments

    Black spots on your dogs tongue are simply birthmarks making him extra unique!

    The Chow Chow is well renowned for it’s unique blue/black tongue. The Chow Chow is one of the most ancient breeds and many breeds today originate from it. However we still don’t know the true reason of how and why the Chow Chow has this blue/black tongue feature. The Chinese Shar-Pei also shares this feature as well as some other animals such as the Polar Bear, Giraffe and some breeds of cattle.
    Chow Chows are born with pink tongues and this darkens to blue/black by the age of 8-10 weeks old, some tongues don’t completely darken and may still have spots of pink on them.
    It is often misunderstood that if a cross bred dog has spots of black on it that it must mean it is a chow mix. This is untrue there are up to 30 pure breeds which are known to have spotted tongues. Spots on tongues are like freckles and birthmarks on people – simply areas of extra pigment. These can also be found on the skin too hiding under their coats.

  • Give Up Smoking for Your Pet
    By on January 9th, 2013 | No Comments Comments

    It’s a Happy New Year but have you already been tempted to breaking your Quit Smoking Resolution already? Think again for your pets sake! Passive smoking does affect your pets. Research has shown in homes where cats were exposed to smoking for five years or more, the cats’ cancer risk tripled, and in homes with two smokers, the cancer risk to the cats quadrupled.
    Dogs who live with smokers are much more likely to get nasal cancer and lung cancer, both of which usually have a grim prognosis. Pet birds are hypersensitive to environmental contaminants and can develop pneumonia, lung cancer, and problems with their eyes, skin and heart when exposed to smoke.

    Have you ever had anyone tell you that your clothes smell like smoke? Well, it’s not the just the smell that can linger – it’s the potential toxins, too. If you smell smoke on your pet, consider the toxins that may be on your pet’s fur. Chances are, they’re ingesting them when they lick the toxins off during grooming.

    And it’s not just the secondhand smoke that poses a risk for your pets: discarded cigarette butts or other tobacco products left within reach of pets can cause gastrointestinal problems or even nicotine toxicity if your pet finds and eats them.

    Give up now for you your family and your pets!

    It’s that festive time of year again but watch out this Christmas as many things brought into the home this time of year can be a danger to your dog. This to be careful of:

    The common Poinsettia, Mistletoe and Holly Christmas plants are all toxic to dogs if they eat it so keep them out of reach. Chocolate is also very harmful to dogs, it contains a chemical that your pet cannot digest and if this builds up it can be fatal. Christmas light wires, batteries, ribbons and bows can all be a danger if you are an owner of a chewer or new puppy please try and keep these all out of reach and have a Jolly Safe Christmas!!!!
