Despite the fact that my book explores a magical world where dogs can speak, in reality there is simply nothing I would change about Alfie. I love him just the way he is. So without further ado, I hope you enjoy this next film.

Teaser Video Four- The Vets

Teaser Video Four - The Vets

Welcome to another Thursday evening and therefore it’s time for Teaser Video Four – The Vets, from my Dog Lover’s Dream Collection. This verse was the sad one to record as it is all about that feeling you have when your dog isn’t well.  Charlie, Rory and James really reflected the sombre mood for me in this video. For all those of you with pets, I’m know you will relate to this…

Alfie and I go back to school!

Back to school

It was with great pleasure to be invited back to school today! Alfie and I visited my old school Rydal Penrhos, Colwyn Bay to share our stories with the pupils.

We started the day with a lovely walk in Pwllycrochan woods just above Rydal and then headed down for morning session at the school. The day started in the library with the reception class and years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 throughout the morning.

A Dog Lover’s Dream, from the book to the film…

The making of A Dog Lover’s Dream in film all came about when I met Alix Charnley. She works for Bangor University and connects the University’s resources through a Santander Talent initiative. She had come to discuss a project for Colwyn Bay Motorcycles, my day job. Alix and I got chatting about my book and decided that it would be fantastic to turn it into a series of films. These would feature the real Alfie and myself and form a launch platform for the book.
