For my latest webwatch feature I thought I would look to my hundreds of Twitter followers for inspiration.
Currently I have more than 500 followers, a number which increases daily and following every post on my blog.
Twitter is full of dogs Tweeting about their lives and what they get up to, so I thought I would drop in on a few of them and find out more in a virtual kind of way.
Apologies if you do not get a mention this time around, but I can only pick five of you ( in no particular order) for this article.
@MillieandJenson – Maltese Shih Tzu brother & sister who are almost three. They love their humans and cuddles and walks in the park. Some of the photos in the Twitter feed just make you want to laugh and say, “I do that.” Currently they have over 1,700 followers.
Hope you don’t mind me using one of your photos, you just look so cute….
@phileasdogg – A self styled dog and travel writer. I just love his play on the famous travel guide when he says he is the Egon Bone-ay of the canine world. In real life Phileasdogg is called Attlee Common. He is a two-year-old mongrel from Battersea Dog’s Home in London.
His human mum is a journalist and he goes along with her to places all over the UK.
@JamesBondTheDog – International hound dog of mystery. Into travel, competitive sleeping & hijinks. Living the life of a doggie spy. Former assignments in NYC, Paris & Savannah. With over 6000 followers this secret agent loves undercover work, especially deep cover work when his humans are at work and the bed is all his.
@Oh_Maisie – No listing of my Twitter followers would be complete without mentioning a fellow nutter. Maisie is a cocker spaniel with a spotty nose who lives in Dorset, UK. According to her profile she loves to roll in fox poo and eats smelly tripe. Looking at her pictures Maisie loves water, sleeps on her paw like me and I think you will agree looks fantastic.
@Nelson_FireDog. Nelson is a bit special as he claims he was the 1st UK fire investigation dog on Twitter. He works for Cornwall Fire and Rescue service @CornwallFRS. Fire dogs are used as a tool to search cold, post-fire scenes for the presence of flammable and ignitable liquids that could have been used to start or promote fires deliberately.
Nelson, an English Springer Spaniel, loves tennis balls and helping everyone to keep safe indoors and out!

It is only when you start looking at the hundreds of followers you realise what a great big world we live in. Many of my colleagues have websites featuring their adventures just like me but some have more serious jobs like Nelson.
Please take a moment to Follow me and also let me know what you are getting up to.
Until next time
