Star's hoping!

Star knows her own mind!

Wolves, woods and woman of the year (nominee)

Yesterday I had a very enjoyable, but at times quite surreal experience. I went on a wolf walk with the UK Wolf Conservation Trust. ( We had been invited to join Jill Moss of the Bella Moss Foundation ( on the walk, as she is a member of the trust. She had some great stories of her experiences with wolves, which will be coming up in an episode of DogCast Radio soon.

"Berry" odd wolf behaviour

Just spotted this very odd video of wolves eating berries - not the kind of behaviour you expect of them! I know they hunt as a pack, but surely usually the prey moves a bit more? But then our dogs love fruit and veg too. Buddy likes apple and banana, while Star cannot rest if you are eating a pear and she knows she will get the core. She sits waiting patiently like a good dog, but she makes eye contact to ensure you know she is waiting patiently like a good dog.
