Dogs such amazing, loving and smelly creatures. Smelly doesn’t even begin to describe what anal glands are. They are little sacks just inside the anus that produce a liquid that is expelled when the dog does its business. Dogs are supposed to be able to expel the anal glands, but sometimes humans have to help.

Cutest Mature Dog Competition Winners

At the end of March, we announced the winners of our “Cutest Mature Dog” photo competition on social media! We had a great response and had the pleasure of going through lots of adorable dog photos. We would like to thank everyone who entered the competition. Picking the winners has been very hard, and we had many debates over who should come out on top. The winners walked about with some free Science Diet Youthful Vitality dog food!

 

Winning the the most competitive division, the small dogs, was Princesa the Maltese. This photo of Princesa is just adorable. We loved her dreamy far off look towards the sea. Not to mention her great hair style! Princesa comes into Paddington Pups for her regular grooms and pampering. And gosh does she like getting pampered and cuddled. Congratulations little Princesa!

 

Lily, the Border Collie, won the medium dog division. And ... Click here to read more....

Dog of the Month ~ May 2018

Congratulations Frank the Dachshund!

Frank is a two and a half year old sausage dog who has been regular member of Paddington Pups since he was a three-month-old puppy back in 2016. We have had the pleasure of watching Frank grow from a baby sausage whose legs were barely long enough to hold him off the ground, to a mature sausage that got a little bit taller and much longer. Frank is an absolutely adorable Dachshund with a gorgeous personality. He loves getting pats and cuddles from all the staff and always has his tail wagging. Frank is a perfect member of the Paddington Pups pack and a pleasure to care for. We look forward to many more years of Frank to come.... Click here to read more....
