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!
30 May: It was a really hot and sunny day today and I had another day playing outside all day while my people worked. They sometimes work hard and that means they don't play with me but I can usually distract them (I'm learning all sorts of ways!) - I can drop my ball in their way, or I can lay really close to them so they have to step over me, or I just speak at them (they don't seem to like that one), or if I wander off and they can't see me then that always gets their attention. I like it best when they sit and rest and me and Happy can rest with them, they're the best times!
26 May: My people's people dropped Yaris and Happy in for a play date, it was fab! We ran around the meadow, Yaris tried to get my ball and sometimes I let him - I'm generous like that!, we played in the stream and then chewed our sticks in the field. I love summer.
12 May: I am really sad as my people tell me that we will not be able to welcome any guests (or as I call them, my fans!) for a while yet. I love my people but I need to see other folks too. I hope I'll have lots of people to play with again one day. x x x
3 May: Well, sorry for my silence, I've been everso busy keeping my people occupied during this lockdown thingy. I don't really understand why they are not going out much and I really miss my visits to the beach, and the moor, and the pub, and I don't understand why the cottage doors are locked and the white boxes on wheels have been staying away so I have no new people to entertain! I hope we will be able to welcome guests again soon.
14 Mar: We had a long walk on the Moor, it was with a group of people and me and Reka stayed on the lead so we didn't get in the way! We found all sorts of places we can go back to in the summer.
14 Feb: Happy Valentines day! We went to Millendreath beach so my people could help collect rubbish off the beach, I don't understand how it gets there but there was lots of it, even some sticks for me to play with! Then we went to Summink Different for lunch, it's one of my people's favourite places and I like it too as when they go there I get to go to the beach!
1 Feb: We had a lovely walk on Bodmin Moor today. It was a bit cold and quite windy but I got to run and explore ... and then my people took me into the Cheesewring Pub where I entertained some of the other customers! I really want summer to be here so I can play catch with lots of Hendrifton Farm guests!
4 Jan: We had an afternoon at Hannafore beach where my people and there people took part in the beach clean and me and Yaris were able to run and play in the rockpools; Happy and Reka had to stay on lead as they are no so well behaved as me!!
1 Jan 2020: Happy New Year everyone! I'm looking forward to another year at Hendrifton Farm, I hope you'll come to play with me soon.
