We little dogs have a reputation for being noisy creatures with plenty to say. Nevertheless, I sometimes wonder what to write as your magazine deadline approaches but this time Mum has an important message for anyone struggling to look after their animals – PLEASE DO NOT ABANDON YOUR PETS!

We currently have space to take in animals so if you, or someone you know, needs help, please get in touch by leaving your name and number on 01787 210888.

Mother and daughter staffies, Alice and Tia are amongst our animals re-homed last year. The pair soon settled into their new home and now enjoy being thoroughly spoilt. It is taking much longer than usual to work through the waiting list of people looking for new pets. Apologies for this but it’s unavoidable in the present climate and the prospect of holding fundraising events is still a long way off. Please hold onto good quality items until further notice but we would be grateful for clean duvets, blankets, towels and newspapers.

It’s very cold and muddy outside, even awkward old Ollie (the Black) Cat is staying indoors recently. We will wait in the kitchen for Mum’s return then it’s dinner and a warm bed by the Rayburn for me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
