This month, we've chatted to Rachel - extremely proud owner of Labrador Retriever, Wisp. She is 8 years old and also goes by the name of Wispy Wispingtons.
Read on to get to know our Dog of the Month and what part she plays in her mum's Canine First Aid Workshops.
I chose Wisp when she was 5 weeks old and she came to live with me at 8 weeks old. I am a Veterinary Nurse and she came to work with me almost immediately.
I also do Canine First Aid Workshops teaching Veterinary Professionals canine CPR and bandaging and Wisp is trained in letting people bandage her. Wisp has a superb temperament and charms people wherever she goes.
She is kind and has a superb temperament.
She is very greedy and loves to roll in fox poo!
Everything! Nothing is wasted with Wisp.
Tennis balls and more tennis balls.
She has a lovely raised bed at home but loves to sleep on the bed when we stay in hotels. Sometimes she has a bed to herself and we sit and watch trash TV together.
Saddleworth Moors as we live very close. Great open expanse of moorland that she can tear around and we generally see no one else. Great stress free walks for her and me.
Not keen on having a bath.
Ringing a bell to ask to go outside for a wee. I taught her this from being a puppy.
Probably an Otter as she loves to swim.
I love Wisp because she is so patient when I am teaching people to bandage dogs. She is full of life, has a great sense of humour and is overall a good egg.
Everyone loves her....
