March 21 update

Posted by peacockspetcare on March 1, 2021 at 12:05 PM

As you can imagine it has still been very quiet during this latest lockdown.

I have had a few of my regulars still needing walks due to work or shielding so have been able to get out and about regularly. Even bumped into a few of our regular boarders and owners on our walks so been lovely to see them and say Hello so they know I haven't vanished completely.

The weather has been all over the place so had a real mix of walks, even in the space of a couple of days it changes so much...

Latest update - Lockdown 3

Posted by peacockspetcare on January 16, 2021 at 11:25 AM

Sadly this virus isn't going away as quickly as hoped but I sincerely hope you are all safe and well.

As you can imagine the impact on businesses like mine is quite wide reaching but thanks to my loyal customers and the government grants we are hanging on in there.

We are now in the 3rd Lockdown and under government guidelines and recommendations from the CFSG I can continue trading. Obviously the dog boarding is not happening as nobody is able to go anywhere but the walking is co...

Covid-19

Posted by peacockspetcare on May 17, 2020 at 9:05 AM

Who knew when I wrote my last entry that Coronoavirus was going to become a pandemic around the world. Back then it was just something in China that had cancelled my daugter's school trip there.

As you can imagine the effects for us have been the same as for many businesses around the world and caused us to ground to a halt!

Whilst we are able to offer our services they have had to adjust and due to lockdown, home working and travel restrictions there is actually very little for m...

The first month of 2020 done and dusted

Posted by peacockspetcare on February 19, 2020 at 9:35 AM

The year has started as busy as it finished, making lots of new friends as well as old ones returning for a holiday.

New boys Fred and Lenny arrived for their stay, they were great characters and as you can see from the photos poor Fred was a seat for Lenny at times! Hope to see them again soon!

Tess and then Riley arrived for a stay over the same weekend, both are big softies though they were very perplexed when Dotty joined us on the Sunday and dived straight into the flooded di...

Spring in Suffolk

Posted by peacockspetcare on May 11, 2019 at 11:10 AM

How erratic has our weather been? First sunny and only T-shirts needed and then there is the day we got hailed on, couple of not very happy dogs that day! Then of course we have had the rain and sun on the same day.

On Wednesday I had three very unhappy dogs in the pouring rain whilst the two Springers didn't have a care!

On Thursday we had an encounter with a Slow worm and then later in the walk we saw what we thought was a pile of manure only to discover as one of the dogs went...

Facebook blog updated more regularly - apologies

Posted by peacockspetcare on April 29, 2019 at 11:00 AM

It has been all go over the Easter Holidays. I have been visiting lots of my cat friends over the past few weeks and continue to visit some for the next couple of weeks too.

Once we got into the school holidays a few of my dogs went on their holidays and didn't need walks whilst my regular walkers Bertie and Oreo came to stay with me for their holidays.

We also have elderly Jess in who would quite happily spend forever asleep, she loves the idea of walks but the reality is somethi...

From snow to sun in less than a month!

Posted by peacockspetcare on February 19, 2019 at 11:45 AM

What a funny few weeks, we have gone from the snow a few weeks ago to these mild temperatures we have had now,

The dogs and I have been enjoying the warmer weather now, though surprisingly the little ones who normally sulk in bad weather weren't too fazed by the snow.

My guinea pigs who moved in for the cold spell are now enjoying a spell in the outside run!

We have had a couple of old friend's return. Both Emma and Toto came back for a short break with us, we have also had ...

Happy New year 2019

Posted by peacockspetcare on January 15, 2019 at 12:30 PM

Two weeks in to 2019 already!

We hope you are all having a good one so far.

We waved off Holly-Belle then Pip and Benji after their owners returned from their exciting jaunts around the world.

We then had a new girl come and stay, Lucy the Lurcher was a little shy at first but soon settled in and we discovered she loves a good cuddle!

Then it was time for Riley to return. He is still as cheeky as ever and enjoyed his trips out with the other dogs, walks with just us is...

Farewell 2018

Posted by peacockspetcare on December 30, 2018 at 5:20 PM

We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to a great 2019!

We have had the pleasure of Holly-Belle, Pip and Benji for the full Christmas/New Year period and loved having them and they seem to have thoroughly enjoyed their walks and cuddles and fuss.

They loved our Christmas Day trip to Felixstowe beach, Pip and HB were straight in the sea, Benji keeps his distance. A bit later Charlotte was in too for a Hospice dip.

Before Christmas we have had Jess...

Return from holiday and Heatwave continues

Posted by peacockspetcare on August 6, 2018 at 12:55 PM

Back from holiday and straight away visiting our furry friends. Whilst I do love a holiday and we had a brilliant time I have to admit I do miss my dogs!

Of course the weather has made this job a little trickier as it is all about ensuring they stay safe and cool. So we have managed walks when the heatwave broke (humans and dogs running around in the rain that first night!) but otherwise it has been a lot of garden play. Paddling pool has mixed reviews whilst it takes some of the dogs a...

Heatwave

Posted by peacockspetcare on July 12, 2018 at 2:05 PM

It has been a very busy and very very hot month!

I hope all of you and your furry friends have managed to keep cool these last few weeks.

We have been relieved to finally have cooler weather the last few days as it seemed like weeks of house visits and garden play back here! The dogs love a get together and a play in the garden but I think like me they were ready to really stretch their legs and run around and explore again.

The forest, like my garden, is very yellow, a remi...

Busy few months starting 2018

Posted by peacockspetcare on April 28, 2018 at 11:05 AM

Been a while since I updated, a whole school term. an entire Easter has been and gone and my twins are rapidly approaching their GCSE exams.

We have had a number of furry friends in and out of the past couple of months, Lisa has had a few stays with us again as well as Mischa, Izzie and Millie, Tommy, Monty, Holly-Belle and Hamish and Stanley have all been back to stay with us again and we've loved seeing them all again for cuddles and play. Two new dogs arrived for a stay, Kia and Harv...

2018 already

Posted by peacockspetcare on January 22, 2018 at 9:55 AM

Oops, it looks like I've been updating my Facebook page and forgetting the pages for blogging and photos on here.


It has been a funny start to 2018 weather wise, just last week alone I got thoroughly drenched one day, out in the sun another day, heavy winds another and snow a fourth and too warm for a zipped up coat today! Even the hardier dogs weren't too sure about the torrential rain, good job I didn't have the little ones that day! The Boxers who are staying with us enjo...

Winter is coming...

Posted by peacockspetcare on November 7, 2017 at 4:00 AM

It has been a busy few weeks again. Heston came and spent a couple of weeks with us, he thinks that our house is his second home and makes himself very comfy. He is so good with all the other dogs that come and stay too, though he is very vocal when he gets really excited playing which can sound quite intimidating if you've just met him.

Over the course of the school half term holiday we were rejoined by Penelope, Holly-Belle and Billy. We had trips to the coast, Penelope and Billy are ...

Spooky yellow sky this afternoon

Posted by peacockspetcare on October 16, 2017 at 11:40 AM

As I write this the skies have gone a funny, slightly creepy, yellow colour and one of my boarders is not keen! Side effect of Storm Ophelia I presume, though hopefully here in Suffolk we miss the worst of it!

It has been far too long since I caught up on Facebook, busy busy with all my furry friends, and in GCSE year my twins too.

Since I last wrote we have had old friends in to stay; Pash and Trippy both boarded. We also made new friends; Tommy, a Welsh Collie, came in for a lon...

Return of some old friends

Posted by peacockspetcare on September 25, 2017 at 5:35 AM

After 3 weeks with us Tess has gone back home, it's always really weird after a long time with a dog to suddenly not have them there! She was a star and we could really see the difference since she first started staying as a puppy and now she is nearly 2!

Emma, the Retriever, also returned for a holiday. It has been a while since we last saw her and she was little unsure at first but soon settled in. The pair of them were funny as some of the walks with them would consist of just standi...

Back to school

Posted by peacockspetcare on September 11, 2017 at 10:50 AM

Back to school and whilst the walks are all starting to return to normal it is still manic with pet visits and boarding.

With 2 of the visits neighbours it makes life a little easier for me. I have been getting to know George and Bella much better, after hiding away for most of my visits last time George has really come out of his shell and enjoys a play and strokes.He is a cheeky fellow and whilst visiting Ben and Bonnie, the rabbits, next door he poked his head around the shed door!

School summer holidays = Colder and wetter

Posted by peacockspetcare on July 31, 2017 at 4:55 AM

Of course after all that heat at the start of July it has to turn wet and cold once school children get their summer holidays. Not so good for them but great for the dogs, no fun wearing a fur coat in the heat!

Since I last wrote I have had Lisa and Heston in for their holidays, Heston is very understanding of her limited eyesight though did look a little bemused whenever she walked into him! 

Roxy also returned for another stay, she is still crazy and loving the shadows! She...

Temperature creeping up again

Posted by peacockspetcare on July 7, 2017 at 12:40 PM

Back to the heat again! Hope you and your furries aren't getting too hot out there!

Since I last wrote we have had Florence in again. She decided to be very naughty and refuse all her pills during her stay, as she has lots of ailments this was not good, she worried her Mummy and vets, let alone me, but of course once home again she was happy to play ball, cheeky thing!!

Pip & Benji also had a break with us whilst their humans did the moving house work and they are now enjoying...

Oops been a while

Posted by peacockspetcare on June 26, 2017 at 12:05 PM

Whoops, it’s been over 5 weeks since my last post!

I shall try not to turn this into a massive essay.

 

Boarders – We had Max the Boxer back in for a stay, after him we had a new boy called Bailey, he’s a lovely Cocker who seemed to thoroughly enjoy his stay with us and we look forward to seeing him again. Holly-Belle also came in for a night and bought with her a new sister, Pippa is a 4 month old Shih-Tzu/Chihuahua (ShiChi apparently) and full...
