Toffee Time

My great pal Toffee the Golden Retriever has just moved to England!  Yippeeeeee!


He came with his family to visit us from France for his first weekend in England before moving in to their new home (which is 90 minutes away from us by car).

It had been Toffee’s first long journey in the car.  I have done this trip quite a few times.  It takes two days of travelling and it can be very tiring.  Here’s a map showing Toffee’s journey from St Paul de Vence to High Lodge Forest Adventure Centre, Thetford Forest, which is near to where we live:

Toffee stayed overnight in a hotel (the one I liked staying at in Nuits St Georges) and then he went on to the Eurotunnel train from Calais to Folkestone, which is much faster and easier for us doggies than a ferry crossing.  (The rules for doggies arriving in England are also a lot simpler than a few years ago, as long as a doggie has their petpassport with everything up to date.)

When Toffee arrived we went for a walk around the forest land so that he could stretch his legs and have a little explore with me.

Toffee was very happy that he could have a good body roll in some new English forest smells!

I showed Toffee where some of the horses live…

My human introduced him to one of our friendly horses called Guiness.  Toffee had never seen a horse so close before so he was very curious.

After a little lunch and relax, the sun came out and it was time for some ear-tasting play in the garden..
