As we are all probably aware dogs and chocolate don’t mix – whatever your furry friend may be trying to tell you!
I have found this article that explains it all better than I can. The article, most importantly, explains what to do if you find your dog has consumed the family’s Easter Eggs.
I hope you find somewhere enjoyable to walk your dog today as tomorrow, if the forecasts are to be believed, it may be rather wet.
Despite the bitterly cold weather I have still been out and about making sure my doggie friends get their exercise.
Many dogs love the snow but please make sure that you dry their feet when they come back indoors and keep them warm.
Just thought you would like to see a picture of Jasper the African Grey Parrot who has come to stay for a while.
A recent study shows that dog ownership lowers the risk of an early death. For more details read the following article. The health benefits are not just from dog walking either.

If you are at a loose end this weekend it may be worth visiting the Pet Show at the Staffordshire Showground. For more information http://thepetshow.co.uk
You will able to take your own dog on the trip too.

Head down to Pelsall Carnival Saturday 8th July, on top of all the usual fun of the fair you’ll find the Pups and Paws family in the craft area with our double sided dog bandanas! So if you are entering the dog arena or just out for a walk we can spruce your pup with some doggie perfume and a new accessory!
We had a lovely walk over to the Chasewater dog show with the PupsandPaws pup! Perfect weather and plenty of gorgeous dogs around !
All as part of the Paws and Paws service I am delighted to have been invited to look after a lovely, aged, cat over the last few days.
The owner did not want to stress the cat by utilising a cattery which is entirely understandable. I, therefore, “pop in” and do some “cat sitting” during the day to make sure that all is well and to look after the feeding and “domestic” duties.
This cat sitting is all part of my Pups and Paws holiday boarding service.
The hot weather has helped develop some blue-green algae in the Chasewater lake.
This algae is dangerous and, if ingested, can be very harmful to our doggie friends.
The bottom line is that until the warning signs are removed by the Park Rangers then please ensure you keep your dog out of the lake.
