January 2010- Heidi – (AKA Louisie Lou)
Louisie Lou has now been collected to spend the rest of her life happy life with her new family in place called Rossendale on the outskirts of Manchester in the UK.
Mum (Wendy) has promised that they will keep us up to date and send pictures as much as possible, although she is not great with computers and will be asking her family to help out with sending pictures.
Great News Everyone – We have a few new pictures of Heidi – (AKA Louisie Lou) – She has settled down really well, loves to be out wlaking on the lead in the countryside. No more messing in the house now, love all her new teddies and is becoming very devoted to Wendy. She thought there might be problems at first because it appears the Louisie Lou wasn’t settling without her Brothers and Sisters around her. She is also now becoming less dependent on perm loving and attention, but that may have been my fault for having paid her so much attention as a baby.

Seriously can not believe what I am hearing and seeing – Manchester & Cheshire Dogs’ Home was set on fire last night.
Please show your support with the #DogSelfie and #ManchesterDogsHome fund raising campaign to action some backup facilities whilst the #doghome over comes this problem.
Here is our #dogselfie of me and #amazon, father to our #lea of the original Rotty Ranch – the Rottweiler Crew, who was once a puppy at this very centre.
Honestly how could anybody set fire to a animal rescue centre, knowing there was little chase of them escaping with most staff gone home. I hope the person behind the blaze is caught and is charged for each and every count of murder they caused. Dogs and animals are no different to us as humans.
Here are just a few of our #dogselfies
Did you dog proof your home before you got your dog?
If not, they are at risk — every day — of poisoning, electrocution or injury. Thousands of dogs die each year from avoidable accidents in the home. Will your latest family member be one of them???
Puppies, with their curiosity and need to chew, are particularly vulnerable.
A dog loose in an unfenced yard is an accident waiting to happen. You can easily avoid all these incidents.

Don’t Give Your Dog Toxic Foods There are foods that we all enjoy and perhaps even love but they are toxic to your dog. You can avoid canine health problems by refusing to give him "human" foods and providing a safe alternative.
Reduce Electrocution and Other Hazards
Every year, many dogs are electrocuted in the home. Others asphyxiate when they get tangled up in plastic bags, or choke on small items they swallow. Some tear their skin on a loose staple under a sofa or chair, or on a nail sticking out from the wall. Many more fall down stairs and seriously injure themselves. Secure your electric cords and remove or eliminate household hazards to help keep your dog safe inside your home.
There are many plants for your garden that are dangerous for your dog. Some can result in death. Dog proof your garden by using some of the dozens of garden plants that aren’t toxic for your dog.
Many dogs become ill due to the biocides used on lawns and gardens. Some plants are toxic to dogs. There are many safe ways to control unwanted plants, insects and diseases in your lawn and garden, and many safe plants that will add beauty.
Rid your property of the dangerous ones and make your dog’s life safer.
Add Fencing or a Restraint System
A dog on the loose is a dog at risk of running onto the road, eating tainted garbage, or getting into a neighbor’s garden.
Your dog will likely be injured or become ill sooner rather than later if they are allowed the run of the district/neighborhood.
If you need to leave your dog outside, confine him to your own garden with a fence, stake and chain, or other restraint system.
There are many different types of dog containment systems on the market these days. It’s important to find the system that works best for you and your dog.
If you follow these simple steps to dog-proof your home, you’ll keep your canine companion safe, secure and healthy.
That’s definitely worth the small investment in time and energy, isn’t it?
Lolly and Polly Play Time With Rotty Ranch Lea.
Just after lunch on July 1st 2014, Lea and myself were sat in the garden, me on laptop as always and Lea playing in the garden or sleeping next to me. Cant exactly recall off hand. 🙂
As we are sat there working away, next doors Elaine popped her head around the gate and we chatted for a few minutes with her Lolly and Poppy. Just teasing and playing with Lea through the gate. Poor Lea wanted to get through and play. So we decided it was time to let them all in the garden through the “Alice In Wonderland Doggie” gate and let them play. Little did I know how much fun they were all going to have. 🙂
