Rodney Newton

Dean's Dog

Rodney affectionately known as “Rodders” is a Basset Hound born August 2020. Don’t let his sad face fool you as he is fun, playful, enjoys a good wrestle and biting games with anyone brave enough. He will also chase his favorite ball up and down the garden for as long as you can keep going. Also a real poser, he loves his walks in the park, particularly wearing his trade mark flat cap and sheepskin coat (just like Delboy).

Max Fletcher

Kerrie's Cat

Max may be old, but he is also very wise. He will sit at the click of a finger and then give his paw to shake hands. He will sit and stare at you until you stand up, and then he will lead you to either the door if he wants to go out, or irritatingly to his food bowl to watch him eat!
