On the run!

It’s always fun when someone comes to stay with us here in Cornwall and my humans are particularly happy when the guest is one of their...

All steamed up!

As a home-loving country girl, I am always a bit nervous about big days out. If there’s a long walk in the outdoors at the end of it, I’m...

A happy day

Most Spaniels love water and take any opportunity to splash through a puddle or dive into a stream. As a breed, we are generally strong...

All stuck up

I’m always very interested when something new happens and quite happy to get stuck in to whatever’s going on. Last week, however, I stuck...

Spring fever

Just as I think I’ve got my humans sussed, they do something to surprise me. We’d had a pleasant enough Saturday. It had been cold and...

Whisper takes control

Things have been rather unsettled since my last blog. One of my humans has been ill and had several visits from people in green outfits...

It takes patience to train humans. Mine aren’t the worst of the breed, but still it has taken some time to get them to understand the...

Whisper takes the plunge

Most humans, especially my own, generally agree I am a well-behaved, obedient dog and most of the time I am just that. However, I have to...

Heavenly peace

I have various spots around the house where I like to curl up for a snooze between meals and before and after walks. My favourite is in...

A new perspective

My humans were in St Just this week and I went along for the ride. It was a cold crisp morning with blue skies and sunshine, and I was...

Hair today, gone tomorrow

I’m not a high maintenance dog, but even I knew a trip to the grooming parlour was long overdue. I wasn’t surprised, therefore, to hear...

In the dog house

It all started so well. I’d been fed, my humans had finished their evening meal and the dishwasher was churning away in the kitchen. The...

An apple a day

We all have our little idiosyncrasies, an odd habit peculiar to an individual, and I’m no exception. Mine is collecting apples. Don’t ask...

A change of scene

My humans took themselves off for a much-needed holiday last week, leaving me here in Cornwall. Not that I am complaining. Far from it. I...
