Teddy is in the Canine Partner Christmas appeal
I look at you and think how did I ever get so lucky. You are loved beyond words. My faithful best friend. I watch you sleep and know you know what it is to be loved from the moment you wake until you go to sleep.
You bring out the best in us all.
Golden Teddy. Golden inside and out. I love the paws of you. Xx
I have met lovely friends from all over the world through Ted and my book. It has been the most exciting year. Thank you to you all. Wendy and Ted x

Settled down nicely by roaring fire in Kirkby longsdale. The views on the journey over the mountains are amazing.
Ted was brilliant in Church this morning while a child did handstands in front of him. He takes it all in his paws. Three walks today. Much milder.
My beautiful Kestrel. When I got him he could hardly trot without coughing. After a few months of tender loving care he bounced out on rides. Mavis Maulkerson ride out on Brandy with me. Those were the days.
The craft group were impressed how quietly Ted lay during class. He is such a good boy. I always take him his own bed or throw. This one was a present from his friend Rory. Thank you Fiona Howarth. Ted loves it. We took him for a lovely walk along the canal after class. He had cuddles at break time then lay quietly again. He brings so much pleasure to so many people.
My brother Jonathan, Teddy and I before my brother ran St Bees to Grasmere this week. It’s a gruelling run. 38 miles in the Lake District uk. Beautiful but unforgiving. Well done Jonathan.
Tune in! Watch ‘The Boys with No Skin’ TOMORROW, Monday 10pm on Channel 5
The programme is about a young boy with eb epidermolysis bullosa
A rare condition where the layers of skin do not adhere properly. It causes painful blisters and wounds.
On the 4th of December I had the third biopsy on my thumb. A week before Christmas the results came through to say I have skin cancer. The doctor I saw today said not all the cancer was removed by the biopsy.
Unable to have chemo or radiotherapy I am to try a cream that acts like chemo. It will make my already sore thumb very raw. Rdeb means we do not find it easy to fight cancer and it becomes very aggressive and spreads quickly. We are hoping the cream can halt its progress. It may make me feel very flu like so if I’m not answering, I haven’t forgotten you all.
We need a cure for eb.
Ted made us aware of something wrong. His constant licking of my hand was to alert me.
#FightEB if anyone can help and fund raise etc it will all help.
Ted is telling me my hand is poorly. He always knows. We know it’s poorly. We are trying hard to heal it. He has an inbuilt alarm to tell me when things are not right. Such a lovely gentle dog. I hold his lead - he holds my heart
My friend James Dunn is raising funds to fight eb. #FightEB.
Cancer spreads faster in eb patients. Only three weeks after the all clear the cancer was back in his hand. During a scan before his operation to amputate his hand they found the cancer has already spread to his arm and under arm. James is 24. We need a cure for eb.
James is also partnered with a Canine Partner.
