Meet our North East Canine Critics

Ruth 25 July 2019

Willow and Bobby | North East

These two spaniels live near the beach in Seaham, County Durham. They have an abundance of energy and are so friendly and loving. As well as exploring the North East, they often holiday in the Lake District and love to visit places, telling everyone how dog-friendly they are - if there's a river or lake for a swim, then that's even better. Willow is crazy about her ball! She has a lot of energy and is such a fast runner. Bobby is a little more laid back; he loves to play with other dogs, loves to cuddle and biscuits are his favourite.

They took a trip to the Old Barn, Hawkshead in the Lake District as roving reporters for Canine Critics. If you want to find out what they got up to, then read the whole cottage review and feel inspired.
