Rocco boy is feeling low tonight despite cuddles from all the humans and his furry pack mates. Two weeks in the cone and no light at the end of the tunnel yet..his eye hasn’t improved but we are still fighting to save the 20% of vision he has left. The other eye is having to work super hard and he’s struggling under the weight of medication he’s having to take. We will keep doing all we can. Our handsome, charming boy. Stay strong Rocco! Thank you EVERYONE for lovely comments and support, you’re all fab and we love you a lot x
As the sun set this evening we thought about all the #MentalHealth warriors who suffer in silence. This post is dedicated to you. Mental health has many faces, it’s not something that you can spot in an instant. Often the people who need us the most are overlooked - they might be the ones smiling brightly on the outside but slowly crumbling inside. We must all watch out for each other. Spread a little more love, it doesn’t cost anything, it only does good. Kindness can literally save lives. Take some time out this week to ask those around you if they’re OK. You just never know, it could just be the question that someone was waiting for. Big love, always 😘🐾💕#MentalHealthDay
What a beautiful day today in #London ! Anyone else wish we could string out these long bright evenings a little longer? Reminds us of the lush summer we had - here’s a little #throwback from one of the heatwave days we enjoyed 🌅 ~ Indie 🐾
Your scars are my scars bro, I got your back ~ Indie 🐾
How cute are our resident twins Rocco and Indie? 💓
Just a couple of months ago Rocco was central to bringing his sister back to good health. Our vets told us to take her home and to prepare for the worst. Our tiny white warrior fought so hard with us and her brother at her side every step of the way. She made it! 😍😍 Who’d have thought she’d be paying back her dues so soon! Whilst Rocco’s condition is not life threatening it is life limiting, confusing and very painful. He hadn’t eaten or drunk a thing until he came home and followed Indies lead. She stands guard whilst he sleeps 💤 and walks in front of him to save him bumping into things (he still does this anyway!) Every day we gain strength. His tail will wag again 😆 . We got this. With or without his eye he will also be our handsome, charming boy.
PS to the people who DMd saying we shouldn’t put up ‘gross pictures’ take this as our two fingered salute! We don’t hide from our scars, we wear them with pride 🛡
Thank you for all the love and support, Rocco feels the vibes. If any of you are feeling low drop us a DM and we’ll reply as soon as we can #senditforward#spreadlovenotwar - disclaimer: our attempts at humour usually fail miserably so please don’t expect a joke 😂(unless you like a good pun, we’re a sucker for them!) Big love, team HoC 😘💕🐾
Isn’t it scary how much the night changes everything? This weekend we were happily running in the forest as a family grateful for everything - especially for little Indie making a full recovery (🎉). And now, we get a call that little Rocco couldn’t have surgery last night as the corneal ulcer ruptured causing potentially irreversible damage to his eye. He is being stabilised and will hopefully be going into surgery this morning at 10am where they will do all they can to save his eye but it’s not looking good insta-fam. Our poor boy, he is the sweetest little lad - loved by everyone and the most handsome bear. Please keep all your fingers, toes and paws crossed that they’ll be able to graft his eye. We think he must have scraped it on a twig in the forest that could have been covered in feces which has caused this massive infection. We’re trying to stay positive, the rest of the pack miss him. Forever thankful of your support ❤️🤞
😫 I DON’T WANNA GO HOME 😩 The #treehouses at #ChewtonGlen are really out of this world. Beautifully designed, warm and cosy havens suspended 32feet high up in the #Hampshire forests. We spent the night chatting to *barking at* the grazing deer and trying to figure out ways to hop into the #hottub with the humans. They spent the night playing games in front of the log fire, enjoying what they called “five star cuisine” (we think they meant raw chicken wings?!) and in the bathroom which had stunning floor to ceilings windows overlooking the foliage outdoors. Where’s your favourite place to stay?
We’ve arrived at the B E A-utiful (and super #dogfriendly ) #ChewtonGlen . How gorgeous are our arrival treats from @billyandmargotuk, @houseofpaws_ and @petsathomeuk. The hotel goes all out to keep us four legged furries as happy as the humans. Can’t wait to explore! @chewtonglen @dogsofinstagram
Hey PAWperfect friends! Sorry we’ve been quiet lately, the humans have been busy preparing a Christmas event! (MORE DETAILS SOON!) We’re on our way to one of our favourite places... the new forest! We’re excited to see our horse friends! Big love, HoC team 🐾x
‘True friends never really leave you, their footprints remain on your heart forever’ - it’s been three months since our lovely cousin Lola the #dachshund crossed over #RainbowBridge . Our hearts are still broken but the memories are no longer painful. We treasure them and smile at the adventures we shared together. Sending love from the bottom of our paws to everyone who has gone through the same ~ Rocco, Indie, Rhapsody, Bloss and their humans 🐾
You’re finally here, I’ve been looking for you all week... Friday! I’m so glad we’re back together. I’m sorry I was with Monday - Sunday, but I swear, I was thinking of you the whole time. Happy weekend Instagram! Let’s make it count - share a smile with those close to you, and while your at it, tell them you love them. WE LOVE YOU! - Rocco, Indie, Bloss 🐾 ❤️
“When it rains, it pours. Maybe the art of life is to convert the tough times into great experiences. You can either chose to dance in the rain, or hate it” - We chose to dance in it, every time. With our instafam tapping away with us. To the sound of the same beat. We’ve had good news today. Indie has had the ALL CLEAR. So, even though it’s raining outside, we have happy feet and invite you all to dance with us! We believe in positivity, happy thoughts and the lifting of spirits through good vibes. And you know what? You all gave us that strength ~ Rocco & Indie 🐾💃❤️
