In continuing celebration of Her Majesty’s diamond jubilee, as well as to mark the Queen’s official birthday this Sunday, we at Groomers Equestrian have decided to profile our monarch’s love of horses.
The royal family have embraced dogs for generations, from Pugs to Greyhounds, King Charles Spaniels to Collies. Indeed, the Queen’s love for her dogs has been widely reported, with the Pembroke Welsh Corgi her breed of choice. To celebrate her Diamond Jubilee, Groomers have therefore composed a profile of the Queen’s beloved dog, and Her Majesty’s relationship with the breed.
In celebration of the Diamond Jubilee this weekend, Great Britain’s military caterers have baked her majesty the Queen a special cake for the jubilee parade. The 70kg tiered cake took six weeks to make, and features royal icing and an ornate sugar crown. In celebration of this event, we at Groomers have therefore decided to create our own jubilee cake recipe, specially devised for canine taste buds. It even includes a special type of royal icing!
Thousands of bluebell woods appear throughout the UK every spring. Beautiful seas of opalescent blue flowers, with their subtle yet intoxicating scent is a stunning part of British heritage. Indeed, over half the world’s bluebells are on our very shores.
Just like children, dogs love Easter egg hunts, especially if you tailor the food to canine taste buds. Hunting down food appeals to the dog’s natural instincts, and offers a good variety of mental and physical stimulus. This seasonal game is ideal for inside or outside, and is great fun for the whole family to be involved in.
Spring is well and truly here, and with Easter around the corner, now is the perfect time to take your dog on a charming daffodil walk. Daffodils are such a bright, cheery, colourful flower heralding the start of spring, and they are currently at their best right now.
