Rumpole and Ziggy continue their adventure

22nd August 2017

What lucky mutts these two are! Look what they have been up to during the weekends with all of their nursery friends ………. The “real” Rumpole and Ziggy also really enjoyed their first Therapets session. We went to visit the residents at Cornhill Hospital Half-Way House. Pets and residents all had a ball and really enjoyed meeting each other. Rumpole and Ziggy especially enjoyed being the centre of attention and having so much cuddles! It was also a great way to put a smile on someone’s face and to chat to new people.
