Juneathon day 7: busy busy busy

#juneathon day 7 was a busy day for the Cambridge dog lodge. It has been school holidays for us and as we are lucky enough to get two weeks, rather than one like most of the country, the lodge is very busy. People make the most of the second week to go on holiday for slightly less than normal. So we had been busy busy busy!

But our poor Poppy, our lovely golden retriever had come into season at the start of the holidays so she had spent that time at my mums. She stayed with Tilly my mums dog so she wasn’t lonely. I went over every day to see them both but we missed her more and more. She’s a big presence in the house even though she’s very chilled out.

So we walked Rufus and Rocky for the last time and today they went home. We managed to get out while it wasn’t raining but we still had hair dry Willow (who’s fur for some reason doesn’t dry!) and towel dry Rufus. Rocky dried himself by rolling around all over his blanket.

Once they were gone the big clean up began – does this count as part of #Juneathon? There was a lot of hoovering, mopping, dusting, moving sofas – then Ben went to bring Poppy home. She was how ever greeted with a bath. For a dog who loves the water the bath is not her forte!

So then the dog lodge was back to normal. Well for a week any way, then I get a lovely new pooch in and the madness starts again
