Pet Profiles

Spaniel in a pool of water with reeds

Pets Profile: Riley

Nickname: Riles
Breed: Working Cocker Spaniel
Age: 7
Food likes: All kinds of food, especially cat food pinched from the bowls whilst they are eating.
Food dislikes: He has fazes of liking things and then not – he also has a sensitive tummy like Theo.
Loves: Water and running – Why walk when you can run?
Hates: Balloons.
Favourite activity: Playing with good plastic bottle to crackle and throw around.
Most annoying habit: Being the office cleaner and picking things up and carrying them off to hide. He can often be seen with a shoe in his mouth. He also has to be really up close and personal and sneaks his way from being at the side of you, to being literally in your face.
Most memorable moment: When he clashed with Buddy and Zeta catching a ball. He ripped all his gum away from his jaw and ended up having to have surgery.
Favourite person: Charlotte
How he came to live with Krissy: He was bought as a family pet and just wasn’t getting enough exercise and needed an active household. He was advertised on Facebook and Krissy recommended him to a friend looking for another dog. However, Riley pulled the heart strings and Krissy ended up with him instead.

Favourite person: Charlotte
How he came to live with Krissy: Theo failed his assessment and Krissy was competing in agility at the time. She needed another dog to handle and compete with, so we took him on at 6 months old with lots of bad habits.

How he came to live with Charlotte: Siyah was rehomed at the age of 2 after his previous owners didn’t quite understand just how energetic a Springer Spaniel was. He was not taken for walks, but left to roam their large garden.

Favourite person: Alison as she does everything for me

From joining my forever family in October 2021 at just 10 weeks old, I’ve grown from a shy timid little puppy into a strong boisterous, mischievous 10month old teenager.

My favourite hobbies are playing ball from the moment I wake up (which is usually early) till the moment I go to bed, or play fighting with my older sister Belle. On an evening I like to stand at the window and watch for Jamie coming home from work as he always plays with me and doesn’t complain to much when I get to rough and accidently nibble his fingers or toes. I also like to watch my forever mum do the cooking hoping she will drop a bit so I can eat it before she sees. My favourite food is cheese which she always shares with Belle and myself. The forever mum is the strictest and sometimes tells me off for digging in the garden (usually in the flowerbeds) or for biting and destroying my bed, (which i have done to quite a few). But I always manage to win her round with my sad puppy eyes and a cuddle. Recently mum had to work from home, I did my best to help her, but I don’t think she appreciated it and kept telling me to go away and to take my ball with me.
