What To Buy The Dog Who Has Everything

Friday, 21st December 2012.
Kings Bromley Marina.

Our Daughter has a 7 year old Staffie, it came from a dog rescue centre a few months ago so may not have had the best of times previously.

However, for Diesel (the name he came with)  life has certainly changed for the better, he now lives in a warm house with his own memory foam bed, gets a walk in the morning and another in the evening, at weekends he goes to the park for a good run.

Every couple of months he's off to the local dog pampering salon for a claw manicure, ear clean and shower, the dog must think he's died and gone to heaven.

As is a Staffie's nature he loves a good chew and can destroy most dog toys in an afternoon, however we found a toy which lasts a lot longer, it's a thick rope with knots at the end, we had bought him one previously and tied an extra knot in the middle to slow him down even more, so for Christmas he's getting another in a different colour.

 Today we called into a Pet Superstore at Lichfield and bought him another rope.
This should last a couple of months, he also gets a notice for the window to warn intruders they may end up being chewed as well.
