Introducing the paw-thors

Hi I’ll go first as I’m the oldest! My name is Duke, I’m an English Springer Spaniel and I have lived with my hoo-mans humans since I was about 12 weeks old. I live in a village in Surrey where there are loads of brilliant walks, I love a good run through the woods and anywhere that tennis balls are involved! I live with my little sister Ellie. Well don’t tell anyone but she’s not really my sister, well I mean we weren’t born from the same parents but she is my little sister and I love her – don’t tell her that though! When Ellie first came to live with us in March I did find her a little bit annoying tbh, it was just me and my humans and they decided that it would be nice for me to have another dog to keep me company. That’s a bit cheeky really – I think they should have asked me first. I was the top dog in the house and then this annoying little puppy came along and kept chewing up all my teddies, she took toys out my mouth and ran off with them and she slept in my bed with me, blooming cheek. But now I love having a little sister and we like to do everything together.

Err Duke can I talk now…Hello I’m Ellie and I’m an English Springer Spaniel too, well I think I am anyway. I can’t remember much about where I lived before but I don’t think I liked it very much because I ran away from them. I got put in a dog pound with lots of other dogs and that wasn’t a really nice place so I don’t like to think about that anymore. The people who had me before wouldn’t even pay to get me back because the vet had given me some sort of operation. Anyway (shudder) they aren’t memories I like to think about now. I am really happy in my new home because I have a big brother who shares his toys with me and we love to snuggle up on the bed together. I always know I am going to get food now so I am trying hard not to eat everything I see on the floor and tables. I’ve learnt a good trick lately that if a human throws a ball I get it back for them and they are happy – they are a bit stupid though because they keep throwing it and trying to lose it again – it’s a good job they’ve got me around. My humans keep telling me I’m a good girl so I really like that and now I smile a lot like Duke.

We are going to try and find lots of nice places for people to take their dogs so you can have fun and be happy like us. Don’t worry doggies we will tell you it as it is!

Our aims

There is nothing so cute as a smiling dog is there? Well I guess apart from a smiling child or someone with a beautiful smile, or … you get the idea! Although I’m sure some people may disagree on the order I think most people will agree that there is something beautiful and genuine about a dog (or child!) smiling.

Our aim is to find places where your dog will constantly smile, where your dogs are welcomed as part of your family, after all that is how they should be treated.

You know what it’s like though, some places just aren’t accommodating where it comes to our four-legged friends. Some people just aren’t ‘dog people’ and therefore our beloved pets are probably an inconvenience. I totally get that dogs aren’t always the cleanest and don’t always behave impeccably but they are fine and friendly most the time though aren’t they! If I was out for a meal in a posh restaurant, I don’t think I would appreciate someone wading in with five dogs who have spent the day at the beach having a wonderful time, covered in sand and smelling of the sea! No matter how much you love dogs, that stinky wet dog smell is never going to be anyone’s favourite aroma!

So…..what is this site going to be all about?

Well my vision is to try and find the best beaches for dogs, the perfect pub, wonderful walks and gorgeous gardens where you can go for a lovely day out and take your canine companions with you.

I would also like to extend this site so that you can share the best places you have taken your dogs to as well.

We are in Surrey in the UK so I think my first few reviews are probably going to be within the South East, watch this space!

Please do get in contact if you have visited anywhere super special with your dogs and you would like to share, there is a contact form at the top of the page!
