Team Buçta Prepares to Face Manchester United

Hey, friends--it's Sephie here, with my annual account of the triumph of Buster's testosterone-afflicted imagination over the tenuous boundaries of reality.

This year, he has signed on to bring his highly-overestimated talent to the footwork arsenal of the vaunted Catalunyan team in facing the dreaded Manchester United. I think I'll just stay in bed Wednesday and hope it all goes away.

Team Buçta has been practicing specific strategies--such as the trademark "Mid-Air Ball-Gobble"...

And the infamous "Keep 'Em Confused" move...

In the meantime, I'm going out to plant some flowers!

Have a, well, fertile weekend!

Hi guys

Many thanks for stopping by our blog the other day and for the interesting questions.

All our pups come back to the Training Centre in Cork at 12/14 months old and they are then evaluated and placed on the guide dog or assistance dog programme. Different traits are required for either programme - guide dogs would be more assertive, confident and capable of accepting more technical training. Assistance dogs have to be very patient and very good with children and willing to work with the family as opposed to just one individual.

The majority of our assistance dogs are lab/retriever crosses but we also have Goldendoodles, Labadoodles, Golden Retrievers and most recently German Shepherd/Retriever crosses. The child's personality is matched to the dog's abilities and personality and also a larger dog for an older child. No particular breed is used but all of the above breeds and crosses have worked out extremely well.

Thank you very much for your interest and if you would like any more information please feel free to email me at

Kind regards
Fiona (the little man's mum)
