Back from Holiday & Interview Update

70cf815790eeb06dd5eda39017e78f05It’s been two weeks since my last blog which feels rather odd as I like to at least post once a week but this time I have an excuse! I was in Cornwall for just over a week for a well earned rest, the first time I’ve ever been to the stunning county and I wasn’t disappointed.

The first thing I noticed apart from the stunning coastline was just how dog friendly these places are. I could easily sit on a bench with a Cornish pasty and watch dogs running, chasing and throwing themselves into the sea all day.

I also spoke to newly formed Patron, Sky News presenter and founding member, Kay Burley about how delighted she was to get this opportunity.

So stay tuned and the interview will be out in the next few days!
