Hello everyone,

So I'm writing this post to tell you about The K9 Cafe. Kiri put me in charge of this because she thought I was the best pooch for the job what with me having such a sensitive stomach and being the inspiration for this. I've always had problems with my digestion and the only food I could keep down was Burns, now I love Burns but I needed something a little bit different as a treat and that's when The K9 Cafe was born.

So now I take care of all the quality control, which is a very complex role and naturally it involves tasting the finished product. Now I know what you're thinking, you just wolf the treat down Murphy but it's a lot more complicated than that. It's a bit like wine tasting but without spitting it out of course.

So what I'm really trying to say is I'm giving it my paw of approval and if you'd like to order from The K9 Cafe visit our online store or request a free catalogue.

Hi Everyone,

Did you know.......

Our wet noses help us pooches to determine in which direction a smell is coming from.

Keep a look out for my next post.

Bye for now

Hi everyone,

Did you know......

The Beatles song "a day in the life" has an ultrasonic whistle in it, which Paul McCartney recorded for his shetland sheepdogs enjoyment.

I have to say though, I'm not really a fan of the Beatles, I'm more of a heavy metal dog myself. I do like a little bit of wind beneath my wings as well, it sends me straight off to sleep.

Bye for now

Hi everyone,

So this is actually my June post, I know this is becoming a regular habit but I do believe that I have a good excuse again, I have recently moved house, that's another story altogether though so look out for it in my next post. fact of the month is:

Dogs can develop an extensive vocabulary of commands/recognised words and the current record holder is a Border Collie called Betsy, who knows around 300 words.

I can't believe I was pipped to the post! My current record is around 100, so I'd better get working on some new tricks if I want to catch up with her.

Bye for now,

Hi everyone,

So I mentioned last month that I'd been really poorly and had been diagnosed with kidney failure but the good news is that I'm on some new medication (or so I'm told, you see foul tasting, crumbly tablets aren't really my idea of good news but that's vets for you) and apparently this new drug has brought my readings down a lot and is working really well.

I also have to take two drugs in liquid form (yuck!) and the vet suggested putting it on my food (yeah right, how daft does he think I am! As if I wouldn't notice!) but because that doesn't work I have to have them through a syringe, which I am not best pleased about let me tell you! If it helps though that's the main thing.....well to be honest the fact that I get a little bit of chicken afterwards helps a lot!

Bye for now everyone and stay tuned for my next fact of month and kidney information post.
