A bit late this month, it has been so hectic here with friends visiting, fetes to go to, Vide Greniers to sell at and, of course, this incredible heat makes you just want to lie in a darkened room !
Anyway, to start off with I give you a tissue alert – I hasten to add a happy tissue alert !Remember Oscar, the dog who was living off his wits in a village where the locals were feeding him ? Oscar was adopted by a lovely family who were in the area on holiday and taken back to England. Well, Oscar the ex village hobo won BEST DOG IN THE VILLAGE at his new village fete !! Well done Oscar we all knew you were special and thank you also to his brilliant new family.
More good news, Oggy has gone to a great home where there is an older dog to play with and learn from.
I’ve just got back from the market and was so sad to see so many poor dogs being dragged around in this dreadful heat. People may like to stroll in the sunshine and sit and have a drink with the sun on their backs, but believe me, dogs hate it. Please, please, leave your dogs at home in the shade.
It was our village fete last weekend and I did the Vide Grenier all day then, with a crowd of friends, went straight on to the meal. I thought I would be exhausted but the adrenalin kicked in and we had a great evening. The following day was a different story !
My friend Sue has been staying for a week, the first time since she had cancer, had the treatment and has been ‘cleared’, so there was a lot of celebrating to do. Whenever Sue is here we always have a Silly Ladies Supper with a different theme each time. This time it was Fabulous Nails so we all had highly decorated nails with a couple of Very Silly Ladies, one with builders nails attached to her fingers and another presenting a beautifully painted little bouquet of nails !
Puppies ! We have six female Newfoundland mix puppies to find homes for. The mother is medium sized so we are homing they won’t all be huge, but put the word around a bit if you can.
At the end of August Poorpaws will be holding the usual second hand clothing stall and I am collecting as much as possible. So if you have clothes you don’t wear any more (ladies’), bags, shoes and jewelry please do get in touch. I can collect from any reasonable distance.
Enjoy the rest of the heatwave, stay hydrated and make sure your pets are too !
