Demi, I know you read here so please get yourself a copy of The Green Roasting Tin by Rukmini Iyer. It's easy vegan and veggie (easily substitutable to make vegan) one-tin recipes. It's not that Sean doesn't like dinners, its that he doesn't like rank overcooked veggies steeped in gravy. I would genuinely like to see them make something from scratch from a cookbook together.
Just wanted to second that this book is fantastic. I bought it without realising it was vegan/vegetarian but I love the recipes in it. Also cooking a meal from scratch that they both eat would actually be a worthwhile video for doodles to do 😂😂😂

What’s the video actually about? I can’t be arsed to watch
All the usual stuff she’s already discussed really. She’s not moving back to her mums, people are apparently making up rumours about her moving back home on tiktok... She also explains that she knows she’s posted a lot of ads in December and she feels she has annoyed people with them but her audience should just get over it because it’s her job.
She’s getting her tooth removed because it’s cracked and is being put asleep for it. She’s sorry for not posting on her couples channel in December because she’s a lazy bint and didn’t have a schedule ready (god forbid she ever gets a proper job!!) and she’s finding looking after dogs hard
Honestly I’m not sure what the huge life update was supposed to be.

Her videos where she sits and chats to the camera can be dull because she takes forever to get to the point and doesn't get to a point anyway sometimes.


On the not posting on her couples account.

I blog and scheduling content can be time consuming but it's better than posting consistently for 3 days and then nothing for a week because of life stuff. Especially if it's your job!
If she struggles with so many Instagram accounts, perhaps she shouldn't have them.

She repeats things constantly in her videos which is incredibly annoying!

The last thing I want to do is defend her because I am one MILLION percent against people getting puppies in lockdown (in most scenarios). But the odd hour at daycare once or twice a week is a great thing for them to learn how to act around other dogs, and could prevent a lot of issues with them as they get older.

I do wonder if she dumps them in a boarding kennel environment (like the place I worked at as a teenager, where they're all left to do their own thing without dogs they dont know ... ) or something that is more like a home boarder where they'll get plenty of individual staff attention and spend time with other dogs. I hope its the second.

However, I am 100% against dumping them there every single day for multiple hours like she seems to be doing.
I got a puppy during lockdown, in November. I think you’ve got to be careful not to tar everyone with the same brush. We had always planned to get a second dog, our other is 6 now and has always loved the company of other dogs. We took veterinary advice (I work in animal welfare, so spoke to some of our vets) and researched breeds based on good health and suitability, not because I like how a certain breed looks. We use a doggy daycare once a week, they have a full day there (oldest has gone for years and pup was on half days until this week) where they social with other dogs, and are watched constantly, but this is 100% a good idea.
When it’s been safe and legal I have rented a secure field to socialise pup with friends pup to help them develop. We also take them to a built up area for Walks a couple of times a week so pup meets other dogs/people. (I live very rural)
Not everyone deciding to get a puppy is a total idiot and rehoming waiting to happen.

the things you should be critiquing are;

using dogs for content
Not getting puppies during a pandemic but getting them before they were prepared in the house.
Picking a breed purely for ‘aesthetic’ reasons.
Locking them in a room all day and night alone
Not toilet training
Using a spray bottle on them
Feeding them a terrible diet
Not walking them several times a day like they need
Giving treats when they jump up and rewarding poor behaviour
Not walking and training them separately

the daycare is actually about the only thing she’s done right.

Absolutely agree with you, I put in most scenarios for that reason! I can see you were ready, and you’re already a dog owner too. I’m not against daycare for socialisation, but when it becomes multiple times a week then leading into it being a every single working day scenario is where it gets frustrating for me. I worked at a kennels where we had a Labrador in every single weekday. :’(

I’m friendly with a lot of rescues, and follow a whole host more, who have had so many puppies and young dogs surrendered that were bought in lockdown either to keep kids happy or have something to do. This is where the problem is for me.

I didn’t mean to suggest every person who gets a dog in lockdown is as bad, because you’re certainly not.

absolutely, I think what I was getting at that it isn’t the lockdown period that’s the issue. It’s the asshole getting a dog for irresponsible and stupid reasons.

and yeah I was on the phone to someone I work with at Dogs Trust and the amount they’re seeing already is honestly devastating.And a huge influx of dogs brought in from Europe who’ve already had a shit start being abandoned all over again.
