Happy Second Birthday to Amy

Amy lives with Mark & Diane Whateley in Birmingham. She enjoyed her 2nd birthday with her Bolognese family Max, Cara and Bella. She had a handmade teddy bear for her birthday which she won’t put down – probably knows the others will nick it!

Diane said, “It’s very hard to keep this girl still, she is always on the go. Amy is beautiful, lively, loving, faithful and mischievous. She has fitted in so well with Bella, Cara & Max”.

FOUNDER MEMBER Belstown Bolognese. I live with 3 Bolognese and live in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. I own 3 Bolognese and show the youngest Harry. I also work part time as a support worker. I originally chose the breed for my daughter to show as a Junior Handler, but she has grown up and number of dogs have grown too! I originally trained as a Veterinary Nurse, as well as managing large show/breeding/boarding & quarantine kennels. I progressed to the commercial sector in sales and marketing of pet products, including running my own PR agency for pet related companies. Along with a few other like minded enthusiasts, we started this club in August 2015 as we felt the breed needed an information centre and a friendly group where people could share their views and learn more about the breed, so I started The Bolognese Dog Club UK. I have bred 7 litters, but don't breed currently.
