Saint Bernard

Santa and St Bernard

This December, a very special guest will be paying a visit to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in Old Windsor.

On Saturday 8 December from 10am till 4pm, Santa Claus will be visiting the Berkshire-based rehoming centre to give dog owners the chance to have a festive photoshoot with their four-legged family members.

How to be the ideal puppy buyer - and more!

I came across Jon Buscall and Kennel Björkwood through Twitter. Jon is a Basset Hound breeder in Sweden, and I am currently arranging a good time to interview him for DogCast Radio. Jon has lots of interesting insights into being a dog breeder, and of course we are often told that the Swedish Kennel Club is a great role model for any Kennel Club to look to.

Big, bouncy and beautiful - the St. Bernard

We've had some gorgeous St. Bernard photos added to the site today. You can see one at the top of this post, but there are more on the site. Check out Best Buddies, Time for a drink and Dr Watson. That last one is not a new one, but I love the comment, with the quick aside reference to drool and shedding! If you go to our St. Bernard breed profile page and scroll down there are more photos of listeners' dogs to see.

For a photo of a St Bernard with lovely calm eyes and such a benign expression, read the story of Rosie.

Dr. Watson Crick (Doc)s

Doc's first trip to the beach at 1 year old.
When my best friend got her St. Bernard three years ago I thought she was nuts but very shortly fell in love with him, and when she decided to breed him with a local female I decided to take pick of the litter. Two years later I can't imagine life without one of these monsters in my life, drool and shedding aside, he brightens each and every day.
