Khan Found His Kingdom

And his Queen by the looks of it!

Khan has been out and about in the paddocks for the last two days and he has decided it's his duty to guard the horses and sheep. It was misty on our hill yesterday and the setting was perfect for him, he looked so at peace and happy. Today he did much the same and also had a long play with Joy....he absolutely loves patrolling about looking all regal but he also loves nothing more than to let loose with her. He obviously feels better after his ear infection and we think you will agree that he looks pretty much at home in his new kingdom. Welcome home, Khan x



Khan's also eats like a king and is eating us out of house and home so we are looking for sponsors for him and Wishlist donations! Although Khan is a big boy he is not a foodie but by trial and error we have found his favourites and he adores webbox, markies biscuits and pure duck treats and he's munching his way through four large rolls of Webbox a day.........that's 120 rolls a month at a cost of £83! All of his treats and food are on the Amazon Wishlist and all donations are very gratefully received!
