I’m passionate about all dogs, all breeds, wildlife, Kenya and all our furry four-legged friends, domestic or wild. From news, expert advice to fun activities with your furry friends, I’ll try to paw out all the best canine and wildlife news for you. This blog is brought to you by BarkUptoday! Claudia Bensimoun!


“Sunday April 23th, Kuki Gallmann was ambushed and shot by armed raiders on her Conservancy in Laikipia, Kenya, in an unprovoked attack while inspecting property destroyed by arson. With devastating gunshot wounds to the stomach, she is now fighting for her life.

Kuki is one of Kenya’s most famous conservationists and the best-selling author of I Dreamed of Africa. For over forty years, she has put heart and soul into creating the Laikipia Nature Conservancy, defending the environment to provide a refuge for wildlife, promoting Kenya’s long term sustainable development through the Foundation she established in memory of her husband and son, and offering a platform for scientific research. Her annual Highland Games and Earth Events, celebrating the cultural diversity of the nomadic people that are her neighbours, have promoted peace and understanding in a volatile area. Her work with local communities has been extensive, sheltering refugees from tribal wars, offering medical aid, supporting the emancipation of women, and providing education and employment opportunities.” KUKI GALLMANN FACEBOOK

Please HELP KENYA, all  wildlife and Kuki continue her mission and ensure the long-term survival of what she has dedicated her life to.
