Hagrid, Dobby & Marley | Cardiff Dogs Home

Monday, 18 August 2014

Yesterday my friend, her boyfriend and myself went along to the dogs home for a good five hours!! We took many dogs out between us and had a fantastic time. Above is Dobby - fitting right in with my t-shirt, who we walked with Hagrid. Hagrid and Dobby share a special bromance and it's just heartwarming. They didn't arrive in the home together but somehow Hagrid and Dobby share a love like no other. Dobby was so timid when he first came into CDH but now walks confidently just taking a moment every now and again to check that Hagrid is near. 
On Saturday I took out Marley again. His energy never stops and he started to pull a little too much on the sleep lead for me. At one point just at the end of the lane he tried a little too hard to pull the lead out of my hand and it made me go back to the home pretty quickly. Now I want to make it clear that in no way was it aggression, Marley just wants to play, run and move. It was decided that we would put Marley on a harness and chain lead to deter him form pulling and he is now a different dog! I couldn't believe the difference in him. No pulling, walking calmer and I honestly felt like he felt less restricted with no lead around his neck. Marley has a fantastic "sit" for a treat and I truly believe that he wouldn't harm a fly. 

Also on Saturday I took Alfie out who is just at the home whilst his owner is in hospital.

Dobby is known for his ability to stop, drop and roll over for you to fuss his stomach out on walks!

These two I had a lovely long play with in the garden, I didn't have time to catch their name but they are only there over one night whilst their owner is away, they are back home in their usual beds now but I thought you would love the photo of them waiting for the ball!

  1. I love these little updates. I don't think I could have a dog as they do scare me a bit, but maybe walking them would be great.
