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!
7 June. Rain, rain and more rain! We had a walk but not much playing outside today. I hope it is better tomorrow!
1 June: The odd creature is back on the CL, the hard shelled thing my people call a tortoise. It still scares me but I try not to let it show!
28 May: Deer deer deer!!! My people tell me that the scent I follow in the meadow is a deer. I haven't seen it but my people have and lots of guests have too. I wonder if it will want to play with me?!
23 May: Summer's coming! We've had some great weather and I have been keeping the guests entertained! My people have been doing lots of work outside so I get to spend whole days with them while they're working; I've been playing, hunting (unsuccessfully!) and waiting ... for them to play!
20 May: Fish and Chips at the seaside! We wandered through Looe to Catch, where they serve the best fish and chips and we took them up to Hannafore to eat them. My people share theirs with us but I don't know why we're not allowed our own serving!! After dinner we get to walk and play on the beach. I love the seaside.
25 Apr: I've been able to rest for a couple of days. My people's people and our guests have kept me really busy with ball and frisbee play. I love it but I am a bit pooped - don't tell my people, they might make me rest more, they sometimes mention that I am getting old!
13 Apr: We've been busy! Guests in the cottages and in the caravan field; I love guests especially those who play with me! My people have done lots of gardening which means me and Reka get to spend whole days outside! Reka sunbathes and I play. It's great! I love that I live at Hendrifton!
2 Apr: Brrrr, April snow showers today, it's been cold! Of course, it didn't stop me playing with my mate Libby when she arrived today! More of our adventures another day!!
30 Mar: I love our guests, especially if they play with me! But I wasn't sure about one of our visitors today though, my people tell me it is a tortoise. I don't know what that is but it scared me! I stayed well away from it and let Reka investigate! She survived, but I'm still not going near it!
19 Mar: I'm in the dog house! My people left some toast on the dining room table and it smelt sooo good ... so I got on to the table and helped myself. I even cleaned the plate. My people were not very happy but they love me and it did make them laugh. I didn't get any dinner though.
11 Mar: Wow, where has the past month gone! We've been having so much fun ... we've walked on the moor, at the beach, had a very windy walk at Cape Cornwall, and a sunny one at Trelissick gardens, we've found a toad, and played in the field and garden, we even got to meet some guests and then my people's people arrived with Yaris and Happy ... but today we all went to see Tracey the Groomer! I love Tracey, I give her lots of Bob-kisses and she gives me lots of attention and some treats, but I really don't like having a bath! Or a blow dry! And I smell so sweet now. Don't worry, I am sure it won't last long!!!!
12 Feb: We had our first walk of the year at Golitha Falls. Why did my people wait so long to go back, I love it there! Lots of dogs to play with, hills to climb, rocks to scramble over and a river to play in - but I wasn't brave enough today, it was flowing very fast!
2 Feb: It's still white outside and it's bright and sunny! We went to the moor today. It was quite busy so I got to play with some other dogs and ran, a lot! It was hard work when the ground gave way and we fell into the snow, at least I didn't fall as far as Reka, my people had to lift her out ... she was not happy! But it was really funny. I think there is evidence on that facebook thingy.
1 Feb: My people were really excited because the snow is still here. They took us on a walk to the lake and then back through some moorland. I loved it! The ground is so soft and fluffy! Reka didn't seem so happy but I think that's because her legs are too short.
31 Jan: The grass has gone white again. My people call it snow, I call it fun!
17 Jan: My people tell me we have lived at Hendrifton for 2 years today. I donít really understand but I do love my life in Cornwall. There are so many places to visit and new walks to experience. We went on one today, it was fab - and we got to lay in front of the fire at the pub after the walk! Iíll tell you more when I see you! x
5 Jan: Seems like my people are on a health kick! Today we walked all the way around Stowes Hill and got to see The Cheesewring stones from the other side. It was so much fun but we were a bit tired by the end.
4 Jan: We walked all the way around Siblyback Lake today. It was great fun ... until I chased the geese and then I was in the dog-house!
1 Jan: Happy New Year to all my readers! My people tell me that summer will be here soon and we will soon have lots of guests again. I love summer but I love our guests more!
