Bears Meet MDD Dogs Lovely pals and ‘ambassadets’ Charlie and Will from Charlie Bears visited my charity this week – here they are with a selection of the pooches. They were overwhelmed with emotion seeing what these clever dogs can do, in early cancer detection studies and also by helping owners with serious diseases like diabetes type 1. Will and Charlie said –

Trip to Milton Keynes HQ for Medical Detection Dogs

Biggest news this week was that I got to meet up with the lovely little MDD trainee assistance alert dog, Derek. I love this little pooch soooo much. Yes, ok I’m a bit broody when it comes to puppies. And hasn’t he grown since our New Year Back to You shows when I saw him last – he’s now 20 weeks old and doing really well. Click the link to my blog for a video chat with his trainer to find out what he beat 7 other dogs at.

So my little sponsored dog is doing very well - here he is in the fabulous video that was created by my lovely mate Mark at our monthly trip to the MDD HQ end of Feb. It tells you more about the charity itself too! click here

Doggy Pup-date 2 I’m so excited to be seeing Derek the Medical Detection Dogs Trainee whom I named, after raising funds for the charity for which I’m an ambassador. He will be at my next visit to the MDD HQ near Milton Keynes and I’m going again on Tuesday with a few more VIPs. More next week. For now, here’s his Oxford TV debut – what a lovely look at the little lad and how he’s progressing! I feel like a proud auntie! Lol.

And don't forget Derek will be with me at Crufts on Friday next week - 11th March in the afternoon! Plus put 10th April in your diary for the Dogs Day Out if you are near Swanbourne in Bucks - more here

exciting news

So it seems the other puppy I'm able to name, will be arriving at the end of March! It may be a little girl. question is, what should I name her?!
