Sad news

Visitors to the Club website who are on Twitter may have heard of the sudden death of my
travelling companion, Molly.

Molly swan botherer

Three weekends ago we enjoyed a pre Easter visit to Lytham and St Anne’s, near Blackpool,
where she ran about, pestered a swan and used the newfound energy that tablets for hypothyroidism had given her to roll around in the grassy dunes.

Now she’s gone, after being diagnosed with diabetes and struggling to make progress with her
illness.

I am sad, as the chauffeur dissolves into tears occasionally as he realises his sofa
companion is no longer lying at his feet.

But life goes on, and I have been invited to take on the enjoyable task of sniffing out grrrreat sites for canine chums to visit this summer.

So watch this space, as they say, and I will do my best to make our much missed Molly proud of my efforts.

‘Chocs’ away for Easter fun!

Ted and I can’t wait for the clocks to go forward at the end of this month… lighter evenings mean longer walks!

I’ve not been well over the winter and my very nice vet diagnosed me with hypothyroidism, which led to my fur falling out and left me feeling very lethargic. I am now told that my patchy coat makes me look like a Gloucester Old Spot pig!

So I’m now raring to go on our 2015 travels, and with Easter just around the corner it seems the perfect time to check out what’s happening between now and then.

Fancy a trip to the beach?

It seems this long and drawn-out winter is finally ending.

Icy blasts and temperatures hovering around freezing seem to have been the norm since November, so I’ve been cheering myself up by checking out some of the UK’s top beaches as rated by contributors to TripAdvisor and reminding myself of long summer days by the sea.

Nairn BeachAnd I’m delighted that, although my little paws have felt the soft sand of several of them, there are still lots of brilliant beaches to check out this year.
