For well-behaved dogs – Get a personal dog trainer

Tuesday 8th of April 2014
Posted by: London DogBlog

Now much as we love Alfie the Chihuahua he can be spirited. No. Let’s be honest. He’s quite naughty. And that’s despite attending puppy classes when he was little, a daily run with professional dog walkers and a past brush with a not very effective dog trainer. It was a few months ago when I finally decided we needed to take serious action. We w...read more

Posted by: KimT

After reading the novel, I recommended it to my teen daughter – who read it quickly and then consumed the two subsequent parts of the trilogy. As soon as she knew it was being made into a film, I was sworn to take her along. So last night – after watching the pre-publicity on the TV all week, we jogged along. I hadn’t read the reviews but judgin...read more

Motown Magic at The O2 – The Four Tops and The Temptations

Friday 4th of April 2014
Posted by: May B

I’ve always had a very soft spot for Motown music so I booked my tickets for The Four Tops and The Temptations at their final gig of their UK tour several months ago.

I was offered the opportunity to go back to my roots – literally digging around in the mud to find things that might be edible.
