Hi! My name is Bob, I am in charge of my people here at Hendrifton Farm! We are very dog-friendly and welcome all dogs, I particularly like the ones that want to play with me! My people tell me that we welcome 3 little doggies, like me and Reka, or only 2 bigger dogs, like a proper collie or a labrador. We have blankets for the furniture, towels in case you get wet, an enormous safely-fenced field especially for doggy exercise and a meadow that leads on to a stream. I love the stream! I like to meet everybody, especially if they will play with me, and I have lots of personally tested recommendations for walks, beaches and dog-friendly cafes! You can keep up to date by reading my Bob blog!
14 June: I love summer! I get to play outside all day and sometimes in the evening too and I'm allowed to cool off in the stream and I don't see a towel afterwards! I've still got my pal here and there are lots of guests who want to play with me. I hope I see you soon!
8 June: I'm so happy! We've been out to play, the sun has been shining, there are lots of happy guests and doggies and my friend Libby is still here ... but I haven't told her yet that I have a new dog pal, she's called Jen and she's much younger than me and Libby but we had a really good play when I met her yesterday.
27 May: The sun is shining and summer is coming. The towels are away, the people in the caravan field have been sitting outside and I can smell barbecues cooking! The people in the cottages have been out all day so I bet they are having a great time too!
25 May: Wooohhooo, my friend Libby is here to stay!! i love running and playing with her but she's got really long legs so I find it hard to keep up with her!
17 May: My paw got better but I'm not happy because it's been raining A LOT so my people have the towels out for us every day! I hope summer is here soon.
15 May: I haven't had many people to play with recently but there are lots of dogs here at the moment and I've been able to play with them. I love it!
3 May: Oh dear. I've been running and playing so much that I've hurt my paw. My people tell me to leave my toys at home but sometimes I forget because I love to play. Today I had to limp home but I do like the attention I get! All I have to do is sit down (or lay down for the best effect) and lift my paw up and both my people come running towards me!! Might be a good time to have a bad paw as I see the towels are back out again and that means rain is due!
20 Apr: Wow, I've been soooo busy! My people were right, my fans started to arrive last week and it has been wonderful! I have been outside every day playing with dogs and children and adults. I love it and hope to see you all soon!
6 Apr: I'm really really excited! My people tell me that my fans will start to arrive on Monday, that's just 6 night time sleeps away! Wooohooo!
22 Mar: We've been really busy outside! My people have been working in the caravan field, Reka has been keeping watch or sleeping and I have been playing! I love it when I play and I get really excited when my people use a bat to hit the ball for me - it goes soooo far I am often too tired to bring it back! My people tell me that there are only 3 weeks until my fans will be back. I'm so excited!!
10 Mar: I'm sorry I've been so quiet, to be honest, I've been feeling a bit bored. My people tell me that this lockdown thingy will be over soon and then we'll be able to go out more and we'll have people to stay again. I don't really mind but I would love to see some of my fans!
8 Mar: We've been working outside again all day today and I am pooped. I love being outside but it is very tiring!
7 Feb: It's a beautiful day here today and my people have been working outside which means I get to be with them! I know they're busy but I don't let them forget about me - if they don't throw my ball then I'll take them a stick, and then another one, and another one ... and eventually they'll play with me! I love my people!
22 Jan: Wow, we went to the moor and it was great! I'd forgotten how much I like it there. There weren't many people or dogs but we saw lots of sheep, horses and cows (have I told you how much they scare me?!).
16 Jan: My people tell me that we are in Lockdown and that's why we haven't been out much. I miss the beach and the moor but we have a great time running around Hendrifton Farm and we go to the farm shop and sometimes we walk to the lake. I hope we are allowed to have guests back soon.
10 Jan: We've had some really lovely frosty days recently so we've been able to run and play without getting muddy. I love playing but I don't really like being towel dried when it's been raining!
1 January 2021: Happy New Year! Hope to see you later on this year.
