Merry Christmas 2020…

The tree appeared,
And everything cleared,
Leaving glittering lights,
And a few excited shouts.

But the dogs were not daft,
They had seen this before,
The Christmas t-shirts
And dad being a guffaw.

So they hid in the corners,
lay down flat on the sofas,
And tiptoed around,
Hoping no cameras were found.

For they knew what was coming, the hats and the cheer, as the Christmas jumpers suddenly appeared.

To be sat at the tree,
As cute as can be.
To smile at the flash,
Wearing those stupid bloody hats!

Merry Christmas Everyone

From us all here at 3WD&P

(Even from Wallace who refused to face the camera 🤣)

Jack Frost…

As the frosty mornings start arriving the younger ones in the pack delight in the crisp feeling under paw.

Chasing tails and birds as they fly over head, frolicking amongst the plants and playing tig, tag, tail. You can see the delight in all their faces.

Theb there’s Wallace, who to be fair is out of bed several hours earlier than he usually is and is not a morning person unless food is in the game.

We’ve never seen Wallace move so quick and with such agility. One minute he was attending to his morning bathroom visit – the next minute he was gone!

On further investigation though we found him, inside, warm and comfortable – god knows how he got on the back of the couch but the face sayes it all really…

(captions on a postcard please 🤣.)

‘Cuddle Monster’

This is the boy who was ‘unhomeable’ who couldn’t be rehabilitated. Who was on his last chance.

Not allowed around children or other dogs, who carried red dangerous dog warning alerts on all his vet and behaviour notes.

Who was dumped on the streets, failed by humanity, hungry, scared and abused – who would never recover or trust again…

Who is now known as ‘the cuddle monster’ here. It has been a journey, there have been moments of heart breaks, battles of will and hard learning curves for this little man.

The outcome, he is a well rounded, friendly family pet. Who goes up to every visitor with confidence (but god help any burglar.)

He’s Gobby and sometimes misunderstood for that and has table manners like a caveman on crack (food is life.)

But also a perfect example that everyone needs a chance ❤️


Stop lying woman…

When you try telling the old man there is no treats left and he doesn’t fall for it 😅

Just you help yourself Wallace but watch your nose doesn’t get stuck 🤣


Waiting for Santa to arrive and bring snacks did not really meet Wallace’s expectations, as he wanted snacks now, not wait another seven weeks.

It was bad enough he had to wait for a strange, fat man in a red suit to arrive in the middle of the night in December and not be allowed to bark at him and bite his bum he silently contemplated without having being my made to sit waiting in the Christmas display like a right Wally to satisfy his hoomuns – especially when he could see the dog treat section directly opposite him.

So, Wallace drew the line at wearing a Christmas hat and singing Christmas songs in protest…
