Today, we would like to introduce you to Lumos & Lando and delve into their experience with Gudog. Or should we say ‘experiences’ in the plural form? This is because they enjoy visiting their Gudog sitters and walkers in Kilkenny so much that they have been returning to them.
As much as we are excited to share their Gudog experience with you, let’s start from the very beginning. Like every dog that enters our lives, Lumos & Lando have a unique story of their own. We wanted to share their story with you, hoping that you would also have the opportunity to get to know them and fall in love with them, just as we did!
Gudog experience: The story of Lumos, Lando, and Owen
Owen and his family found themselves contemplating the idea of welcoming a furry friend into their lives. They hadn’t made a final decision yet when fate intervened, introducing them to Lumos at the tender age of 4 months. In an instant, they recognized that Lumos was meant to be a cherished part of their family.
As time went on, they felt that Lumos deserved a companion of his own. Their hearts were set on rescuing a dog, and they eagerly joined several rescue center waitlists, hoping to find the perfect match. It was during this search that Lando made his grand appearance. Lando’s first visit to their house included an unexpected surprise in the form of a living room poo accident. But it was at that moment that Owen and his family knew without a doubt—Lando was meant to be a part of their lives.
The name Lumos, inspired by a spell from the magical world of Harry Potter, symbolized the essence of “Light”. As for Lando, his name was a nod to the talented Formula 1 driver Lando Norris, as Owen is an avid McLaren fan. The name perfectly captured Lando’s spirited nature and undeniable speed.
An experience at Gudog: Lumos & Lando with Jenny
We couldn’t wait to dive into Lumos & Lando’s Gudog adventure, the stars of today’s post! We reached out to Owen to spill the beans about his Gudog experience with Jenny, the amazing dog walker he recently chose for them.
Jenny, a resident of Kilkenny, joined Gudog earlier this year. Owen reached out to her for dog walking services when he couldn’t do it himself. Their first walk together went really well, and both Jenny and Owen look forward to more opportunities to work together in the future!
For us, nothing is more important than the well-being of every dog that comes through Gudog and ensuring peace of mind for their owners. That’s why we’ve reached out to Owen, who will be sharing his firsthand experience of Lumos & Lando’s time with us. Get ready to dive into their Gudog experience as told by Owen!
