Dog of the Day

Meet Waterfurlong's canine friends. Some of their humans garden here, others enjoy calling in on their walks.


Here is Meg, a two year old working cocker spaniel. Her owner, Cae, tells us Meg loves eating mini windfall pears and going off on travels in their motor home!

Introducing Pip, the cuddly Schnauzer, a regular visitor from Chiswick to Bruce and Keith’s plot. Her guilty pleasure is chasing deer in Richmond park!


Meet Basil, the labradoodle puppy. His favourite outdoor pastimes are digging up reseeded grass and rummaging in heather!


Meet lovely Bumble, the cockerpoo, whose owner Sarah enjoys bringing him for Waterfurlong walks. Bumble loves playing ball, especially if it snows!



Meet Peg, the one year old Jack Russell chihuahua cross. Her owner Sarah adopted Peg from Three Counties Dog Rescue and says Peg’s favourite hobby is wrestling!

Mac ‘The West Highland Terrorist’ is the well-known westie of Waterfurlong. His favourite hobby is chasing rabbits, with his human Mike in tow.
