Breed: Lab cross

Dislikes: Going to the vet (although our vet is lovely).

Bouncer was acquired from the Dogs Trust by Marissa Mugford in 2008. He was 11 months old and had bounced back and forth from rehoming, hence his name. When brought home he immediately bonded with Humphrey one of Roger’s dogs and they were lifelong friends until Humphrey passed away last year. During his younger years he aided Roger as a stooge dog and has appeared on TV on quite a few occasions. Bouncer is a dog who loves to please and is a nurturing ‘mum’ to any of our orphaned lambs. He is a great family pet and everyone adores him. He now has a quieter life but he still looks forward to his daily walk with Marissa and hanging around the livery yard sun bathing (when the weather allows).

Best Trick: Rollover

Daisy came to Sarah and her husband as a puppy through rescue at just eight-weeks old, having being sold at seven-weeks to an owner couldn’t cope with her. She’s a very loving girl mainly be seen on your lap, even if you are trying to work! She especially likes to share Karen (The Practice Manager’s) chair with her so she can be close.

Belongs to: Sarah Gibbs

Breed: Beagle

Age: 9 years old

Gender: Male

Likes: Food, food and more food!! If you have food he is your best friend, and he never forgets!

Dislikes: Going out in the rain and getting wet full stop – including being bathed! Being away from Mum & Dad at the same time, he’s very fickle, he can be a Mummy’s boy one day and a Daddies boy the next!

Best Trick: High five, speak, do the famous beagle howl on cue and beg

Snoopy came to Sarah and her husband as a puppy through rescue at just 9 weeks old as his previous owner couldn’t cope with him. He’s a gentle boy and if other dogs are rude to him he tends to look at his mum and say ‘What’s he doing’ He loves to be off lead and out exploring and unlike a lot of beagles he has a good recall, so long as food is involved somewhere!
