Jane Goodall quote

Doggy quote of the month for January 2020

“Dogs don’t age like people.   We peak at twenty-five, then hit a slow, gradual decline into oblivion.  Dogs mature fast, then plateau and stay there for a long while.  Then, in the last quarter of their lives, they show steady signs of aging – arthritis, deafness, graying, slowing down.”

– Steve Duno, author of Last Dog on the Hill

Fanny Wright was born in Scotland and was a lecturer, social reformer and feminist.

If you are concerned about your dog’s caloric intake over Christmas, I strongly recommend a massage voucher for a gift – no calories, and we will get your dog moving better so they actually burn more calories which helps with weight loss.
