Well I'm new to all this blogging stuff so thought I would get things off to a start by telling you a little about myself, my family and our dog, Cashew.
My name is Sam, and I live in Surrey with my husband Chris and our son Freddie, now just 6 years old. The pic below was taken at Corner Cottage the very first weekend after we bought it when we were staying down there with friends and family whilst getting ourselves set up.
Until recently, we had two beautiful Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Poppy and Cashew, but sadly we lost Poppy earlier this year, although her legacy lives on in our hearts - and in our cottages - where we have taken care to provide non-slip floor coverings because otherwise Poppy would refuse to enter!!
Poppy was unbelievably kind and tolerant to Cashew when he arrived and turned her peaceful world upside down. Cashew is 9 now, and getting very grey in his old age, but still fills my heart with joy when all 43 kilos of him hurls himself at me with delight when we come home.
Cashew is also the topic of many of our Twitter and Instagram posts, so please follow us on other Social Media platforms for updates on the life and times of Cashew, Dorset news, special offers and whatever the latest dog-related hashtag happens to be. Some of our favourites are #TongueOutTuesday and #WoofWoofWednesday.
You will find us on Twitter @DorsetHolidogs and on Instagram @dorset_dogfriendly_holidays
And be sure to Like and Follow our Facebook pages for news, reviews and special offers too.
Thanks for reading this far - back soon with more random thoughts!!
Hi! I'm Sam :-)
