Lenno - smoking is not good for you!

I've told Lenno time and time again that smoking is not good for him! He just won't listen!

Ok, this is not a real cigar, it is a Chicken Chew Stick. Lenno loves them and I was going to give it to him on Christmas day but he sniffed it out before I could hide it away!

Only 2 more sleeps!!

Time is running out for you to send me your Christmas Pet Photos!! I've got five gorgeous Disney Santa Paws DVDs to give away.

Email me at: or post them on my Facebook fan page here

As Christmas approaches, it is easy to over indulge and it is the same for our pets. Here is a photo I took last Christmas of the very handsome Oscar. He would LOVE some Christmas ham!!!

Vets commonly see plenty of stomach upsets around Christmas. I often dread working the following week as I usually see so many sick pets!

Please be extra careful and be on the look out for potential dangers. Fatty food can cause your pet to become very sick and even develop a painful and potentially life threatening condition called Pancreatitis.

I have also seen dogs that have eaten meat from the BBQ and got either a cooked bone or even a skewers/shaslick stick stuck in their intestinal tract eventually leading to intestinal perforation (basically the skewer pierces the lining of the stomach). This is NOT GOOD!

Fruit cake, macadamia nuts, grapes, sultanas and chocolate are another hazard - don't leave them in your dog's reach. AND NOTE: Dogs will eat through wrapping paper and get to anything under the tree. When I was younger my dog opened a present under the tree and ate an entire box of Lint Lindor balls (She had good taste in chocolate!). Thankfully she was ok.

Cats can get themselves into trouble too as they love playing with Christmas tree lights and Christmas decos (the string on the decos may be a hazard if swallowed). Again, be aware!!

On a happier note, I hope you have got your pet a Christmas present. I've got a little surprise for Lenno on Christmas day- I'll pop some photos up for you all to enjoy!

Merry Christmas to you and your pet,

Love Fi and Lenno xx


Tell her she's dreaming....

I took this photo in Morocco a few years ago. It is still one of my favourites.


Fuzzie Wuzzie

This is Wuzzie. Wuzzie has one very long but very cute tongue.

All the better to eat dinner with...

And lick the plate clean...

Wuzzie is a very well loved dog who also goes by the name of "Chunky" and STIG (from Top Gear).

Lenno and Wuzzie are going on a doggy date in the next few weeks so keep your eye out for more photos!


One very cool cat - Sir Wojcinski

This is Sir Wojcinski Newman-De Palma. Is he not the coolest cat?!

His serious face...

Sprung sleeping in the fruit bowl...

Seems this is not a bad spot for a cat!

But...the pantry is an even better spot, especially when he discovers the dry cat food!

Thanks to Sabrina for sending me these fantastic photos!


Remember Wiggans?

Do you remember a few posts ago I introduced you to little Wiggans??

Look at him now...

Words are not needed!
