Oh Shoot!

I recently commissioned Tony from Boutique Pet Photography to take some pics of me and Evie. It was good fun and we got some great pics, but not without a certain amount of craziness. I decided I wanted to try to get some pics that were a bit different so was after some different perspectives / angles.

To begin with I thought it would be good for me and Evie to lie on the ground and look towards the camera

Evie – ‘Just give me a cuddle mummy’!

While this pic was being taken, I was rolling backwards down the dune with Evie squashing into me for a mummy cuddle!

Tony did manage to capture a couple of amazing images though, Evie looks beautiful in these.

Scary starey!

Tony had asked me to look straight ahead. The only way I could do it without laughing was to stare madly, resulting in this dark image. My parents think this looks like a photo they used to take in the old days where they would take the photo of a deceased person with their family. It is a bit ‘Adams Family’ I love it!

Next I thought it would be a great idea to jump off the dunes down into the sand. In my head, I would be floating off the dune like a fairy, landing light footed on the soft sand below. The reality? I hardly left the ground and landed with a bang – the tremors were recorded in Truro! Evie had run off in the opposite direction in any case, so no pics of that!

Next I had the great idea of me and Evie lying in the sand with a pic being taken from above …….

A great pic of Evie – but what am I doing?! lol

As Tony was packing up his kit and we were thinking of heading off home, Evie jumped up on me for a treat, it just goes to show that sometimes it’s the things we don’t stage that happen by accident that sometimes result in the most natural outcome. We had great fun. And I have some great images of me and my girl x thank again Tony

A day in the life of a dog walker

Bella, a four year old retriever, has been staying for the past 3 weeks. She loves home boarding and gets on with Evie very well. Monday is the day her owners are coming home.  Monday is the day Bella decides to roll in a massive pile of horse manure, all fresh and green.  Monday is a really good day for Bella to have a bath!

Bella looking very pleased with herself after rolling in poop!

It’s lovely having dogs to stay, I’m licenced by Cornwall Council to home board 3 dogs at a time but restrict this number to 2 to provide a more exclusive service.  

So Bella has gone home now and all is quiet at the Piran Pets Pad. It’s great catching a bit of one to one time with Evie before the next four legged guest arrives.  A break also gives me a chance to catch up with cleaning beds and towels!

Today hasn’t been the best day to be a dog walker.  I used three sets of waterproofs but none of the dogs seemed to mind getting soaked.  If anything, the rain made them all frisky.  I did my afternoon ‘Little dog Trek’ at Chapel Coombe in St Agnes and this provided a bit of shelter for the little dogs – who all ended up going in the stream in any case.  Towels, coats and van are now all dry ready for another soaking tomorrow!

A new EXCLUSIVE home boarding service offered by Piran Pets

The benefits of EXCLUSIVE home boarding……

  • fewer dogs means more attention to each dog staying
  • a more comfortable, chilled and laid back home atmosphere where your dog can relax

Here at Piran Pets we like to ensure that your dog’s stay is as comfortable and happy as possible. For that reason we now offer exclusive home boarding – offering home boarding to a maximum of two dogs at a time. So if your dog is boarding with us they enjoy the luxury of being one of a very small number of dogs. The benefits of this? Your dog can enjoy lots of walkies, cuddles and attention. Boarding a smaller number of dogs means your dog can come out walking for lots of the day then enjoy some play and relaxation with Evie before bed time.

If you have a dog who would benefit from exclusive home boarding, please contact Nicky from Piran Pets 07737843781
