Today I am going to continue with our series of posts telling you all about the doggies we have had the fortune to have known over the years. We really love German Shepherds, or Alsatians, here at Jammy Toast – mostly because they are so loving and intelligent. They make great guard dogs but are also friendly towards the rest of their pack – human, bear or otherwise. The first German Shepherd we ever had was a character by the name of Max. Just like his owner, Max was a little special and had a few social problems. These problems usually manifested themselves in his desire to kill anyone he met.

Dalby Forest Shut Out

Visitors to a North Yorkshire beauty spot couldn’t understand the length of the queue to get in. During the summer months, visitors to the North York Moors National Park might expect the car park to be busy but at this time of the year you would expect to be able to drive straight in, without delay. However, on this particular day, visitors to the eight thousand acres of woodland had to wait. All because of a resting rodent who had decided to take up home on the circuit board of the car park vehicle entry barrier.

Hattie knew she had a problem with her weight, if she was going to do something about it then she knew she was going to have to give up her diet of hamburgers and chips. Rescued from her former owner by the RSPCA, Hattie made headlines around the world after she was taken in by Gables Farm Dogs and Cats Home in Plymouth, Devon, earlier this year. The plump pooch weighed almost 40kg when she was rescued. However, the hefty hound has now slimmed to 23kg.

Gladstone Is Safe

Those of you who may follow him on Twitter or if you had noticed Larry’s emotional pleas for his missing friend will be relieved to hear that Gladstone the Treasury cat is alive, well and was back at work this morning. Treasury officials spent the weekend desperately searching for the department’s official cat after he went missing over the weekend. Three-year-old Gladstone was believed to be on the loose around Westminster and officials put out an alert to all staff in a bid to track him down. If Gladstone hadn’t been found it would have proven a huge blow to staff and ministers because he’s rapidly become a favourite – not just with staff – but with voters on social media.

Last month, I started a new series of posts to tell you all about the doggies we have had the fortune to know over the years. So today, I thought I would continue with the doggie stories and continue to tell you about some of the characters we have known over the years. We really love German Shepherds, or Alsatians, here at Jammy Toast – mostly because they are so loving and intelligent. They make great guard dogs but are also friendly towards the rest of their pack – human, bear or otherwise. The first German Shepherd we ever had was a character by the name of Max.

Chunkie Finds A Home

Ever since we adopted Rico from the brilliant people at the Dogs Trust we keep an eye on them through Twitter and their website to see how they are getting on. One story this week really struck home with us because we have a bit of a soft spot for big dogs. The Dogs Trust West London centre have just rehomed their biggest dog for some time. Six-year-old Chunkie weighs 60kg – that’s more than Chimpton – and is also the first ever Boerboel (or South African Mastiff) that has ever come through the rehoming centre’s doors since it opened 12 years ago. Incredibly, records also show that Dogs Trust has only ever had two other Boerboels previously come in to the charity, at Kenilworth rehoming centre in 2013 and Loughborough rehoming centre in 2017 – making Chunkie something of a rarity.

Did I mention, Max was also a bit of a vandal?

Over the years we have had the fortune to have known many doggie friends. So, starting today, I thought I would share some of our doggie stories with you because we really have had some characters over the years. We really love German Shepherds here at Jammy Toast, mostly because they are so loving and intelligent. They make great guard dogs but are also so friendly to the rest of their pack – human, bear or otherwise. The first German Shepherd we ever had was a character by the name of Max. Max was a bit special and I mean that in all senses and connotations of the word.

Supercharged Otters

Thursday is usually Andreaa’s Day here at Jammy Toast but as she is currently on holiday in Turkey we are at a bit of a loss as to what to do with today. So to cover for “she who must be obeyed, or else”, I thought I would tell you of our latest love. A while ago we went and saw some otters and immediately saw what great little creatures they are. Equally at home on land as they seem to be in the water. We were fascinated watching them use tools to help them get at the food. They eat fish and invertebrates and think nothing of lying back, placing the invertebrate on their chests and hitting hells-bells out of it with a rock. To heighten our interest we saw a programme about them last week which spelt out just how clever these little chaps are.
