Great advert for Cornish Tourism!

Sorry just had to comment on the outrageous behaviour of a Cornish bed and breakfast.

They have been fined for refusing a married gay couple to stay in a double room and share a bed.

Quite right!  What era do they think they are living in? I know Cornwall has some old world charm but they have served up Old World without the charm!

To add insult to injury the Church are going to pay the fine for them.

Rest assured that the majority of Cornwall don't think that way and a paticularly lovely place to stay is Out In the Open Campsite, with plenty of space for camping and glamping and you won't be restricted to a 10ft square pitch.

Canine campers are more than welcome with lovely walks on your doorstep - just don't forget your dicky bag!


Beware 4 legged larger louts!

Brewers in Holland have launched a Dog Beer.

It is alcohol free and made from a special blend of beef extracts and malt, to keep a beer taste and add meaty goodness.  The makers market it as 'a beer for your best friend'.  A spokesman said "for large dogs we recommend one bottle a day smaller dogs like chihuahuas, well they prefer shorts'.

It is being trialed in the Derby branch of Pets at Home before being rolled out Nationally.  Interesting that Pets at Home think stocking dog beer is more ground breaking than stocking dicky bags which aim to solve the dog fouling problem!

But it would appear they are not the first to come up with this idea.  It will come as no surprise that an Australian company called paws point have been making and selling  dog beer in New South Wales for some time.




Japan are next Country to carry dog poo the civilised way

We have just recieved our first trade order from Japan.

Dicky Bags will be on their way to Yokohama this week to and Japanese company who specialise in imports of the best products for dogs.


Fears over Poodle Cross Breeding

Poodles are well known for their intelligence, good nature and most recently for their hair retention which has made them a popular choice for cross breeding.  You can get anything from a cockerpoo to a labradoodle with people experimenting with all types and breeds of dogs.

However a worrying site outside a local shop raises the question, has this cross breeding fashion gone a step too far?

No name has been given to this crazy cross breed, feel free to make your own suggestions!




Top Dog Names of 2010

Each year dogs everywhere look forward with anticipation to releasing its list of most popular dog names for the year.  They do cat names too but I'm not particularly interested in those... and for good reason I'm sure you'll agree!

The list includes the top 10 most popular celebrity-inspired pet names and I thought it might be a nice way to round off 2010 if we had a little look at the movers and shakers of the year!

For a fourth year in a row, Buddy stayed in the number one spot for dogs which is hardly surprising considering that's exactly what we are - the most fantastic Buddies on the planet!

Here are the complete lists for the most popular adoptable pet names of 2010.

Top 10 Dog Names:

  • 1. Buddy
  • 2. Max
  • 3. Daisy
  • 4. Bella
  • 5. Lucy
  • 6. Jack
  • 7. Molly
  • 8. Charlie
  • 9. Sadie
  • 10. Rocky

Top 10 Most Popular Celebrity-Inspired Pet Names:

  • 1. Elvis
  • 2. Houdini
  • 3. Cher
  • 4. Madonna
  • 5. Twiggy
  • 6. Oprah
  • 7. Lady Gaga
  • 8. Beyonce
  • 9. Coco Chanel
  • 10. Shakira
Now I don't know about you but if someone called out "Lady Gaga!!" in the park I would be extremely embarrassed for the dog in question!  Something on a parr with when your human has chosen a Dicky Bag that is a size too small for you - terrible!
However I have to say I know a cocker spaniel named "Beyonce" who is quite the queen of woofiliciousness!
So, if you are looking to add another member to your pack in 2011 will you be going with a name from the 2010 list or will you be calling out something else on your walkies?
Enjoy the New Years celebrations (but don't forget we dogs aren't too keen on Fireworks!) and I'll see you on the other side!
Smell you later

"Wow! The Dicky Bag is exactly what I needed! The clip saves me carrying the bag in my hand, the seal stops it from smelling, and it looks great!"

"I love my Dicky Bag! It's so much nicer than having to carry a plastic bag around, plus the neoprene design means it doubles as my stubby holder! Awesome!"

Top Rated Product!

I recently purchased a dicky bag (dog poo bag!) online as it seemed the answer to all of my poop scooping problems (no bins on walks, clutching a tesco carrier bag blatantly full of crap - you know how it is! )

Excellent product

We love these messages - even the professionals are using our dog walking bags! Smile

"To the Dicky bag team.  I am a professional dog walker and  have bought products before which you use to carry your dogs No2's in and have given up with them with in a couple of days as they have always been so impractical to use.  I must say I have been using my Dicky bag for 3 weeks now and love it!

I like the idea of carrying spare bags in the top although I take them off the roll before hand and push them in to the slot.  The bag is discreet and so much better than when I had pooh bags swinging from my hip! Read more
It's hard to stop people borrowing it! I won a Dicky bag at alocal dog show, having never heard of the company before I didn't know just how great this product was. We take our bag to every show,walk and journey and it really is brilliant. You wouldn't know what it contained and I honestly couldn't live without our now! My mum and sister are having one each for christmas they are amazed. I keep having to ask for my bag back from my sister who tries stealing it on a regular basis!
Thanks to all at Dicky Bags for making our life easier, less embarrasing and more convient. Dicky bags make being a responsible dog owner stylish and cool!
