When I got a call from Julie, who told me she was moving from Sheffield to Sonning and was looking for someone to look after her 14 month old pug dog, Phoebe, I was so excited - pugs are (one of) my favourite breeds! So I arranged to meet up with them as soon as they arrived in Sonning.
Phoebe enrolled in Mind My Paws doggy day care three weeks ago, and I have completely and utterly fallen in love with her! She is the cutest little thing with the biggest personality. She comes to me three days a week and also boarded with us this weekend. During her time with us, she has met many new doggy friends, including Rolo the labradoodle, Dudley the chocolate lab and Stan the jack russell (not so much of a puppy anymore!).
She provides hours of endless entertainment, just by simply either never sitting still for a second, or completely sparking out on your lap when she's used all her energy.
Yesterday, we took her to our dog friendly local, Victoria Arms in Binfield, to introduce her to some friends. She won the affection of the whole place - including a very excitable 3 year old who sat on my lap, laughed uncontrolably and played with Phoebe for maybe half an hour!
I'm so happy to see Phoebe's little face when I pick her up in the mornings and am hoping that over time, her mum will feel less and less guilty about leaving her!
