About Carl

I have always had dogs, since leaving home at 17 and consider them to be an important part of the family. My wife and I met at age 14 and have been together ever since. We are now in our 50s and have always included pets in our family. Presently, we have two beautiful Cairn Terriers, who light up our life with love and companionship. Over the years, we have had three Labradors ( 2 black and one white, the last of which, named Bella, was our faithful friend for 16 years. Charlie ( our lovely male Cairn Terrier ) has now been with us for 15 years and he has been everywhere with us in this time. We haven`t taken him abroad at all, but he has been all over the UK with us, from Wales to Kent, to Yorkshire and several times to Scotland. We have pictures of him with us in numerous locations around the UK. In 2007, Charlie was joined by a beautiful little puppy called Rosie and they are now the firmest of friends. Rosie ( our female Cairn Terrier ), is now 10 years old and is one of the most loving dogs I have known. Both dogs are with me during the day ( whilst my wife is at work ) and they sit as good as gold in a big basket on the front of my bike as I take a daily ride around town. They have had their picture taken many times and I am probably known as `the dog man` in these parts, as they have been met and admired by so many people !
About 300 yds away, at the end of our road, we have St Marys Recreation Park - where dogs are welcome for exercise and across the road from this is St Mary`s Cemetery, which makes a picturesque location for dog walking ( on leads only ).

    Harper had a great time with Carl. He's a genuinely caring dog sitter. I wouldn't have any reservations in asking him to look after our retriever again.

    Carl and his wife Nicky are all we could hope for to look after Fleur. They certainly spoil her! We are very grateful to them. Fleur seems to have had a fabulous time.Thank you to you both. Loved the updates, made us happy and confident that Fleur was happy. Til the next time ;)
