Discover Dogs Earls Court London UK

11th November 2012

Firstly I must say a message of pride to our soldiers past and present that served our country on Rememberance Sunday - And   I wore my poppy with pride.

I was lucky to be  invited to Discover Dogs in Earls Court by Natasha Mason who was collecting articles and photos for her new 'doggy magazine' coming out in the New Year Bowowow!!!

We both arrived in the afternoon amidst  rescue dogs, show dogs, guide dogs for the blind and many more organisations connected to the world of Dogs! I bounced behind Natasha like an excited jack russell as she took Discover Dogs by storm with her amazing 'meet and greet' - as she explained in avid detail her up and coming magazine.

I wandered over to the mayhew animal home stall and though there had been lots of inquires about Cleo a staffie pup and Rocky a lurcher pup (found in a cardboard box in nearby woodland) - no offers as yet!!! Talked to Caroline Yates Director of the Mayhew and  the indespensible  volunteers about 'Louie' and 'Ruth' who are two long stayers and then moved on to based in Berkshire - a great rescue - they search - locate and reunite  missing and vunerable people - all the dogs in the team are pets and their handlers are all volunteers.

Then I saw 'Darcy a Borozo from the wilds of Russia (in russian Borozo means 'Swift') Photos later - Amazing beautiful dogs that run like the wind. Natasha took some incredible  photos!

Last but not least I have to mention Dogue De Bordeux Welfare - I was humbled by their aspiring dedication to this beautiful breed - They  always offer Rehoming  Support and Advice for Everyone on:-

How to combat the stigma towards DDB's suffering from Slobbertis by offering advice and education on how to deal with it.

To rehome DDB's in safe and comfortable homes -

What a great afternoon of 'doggy heaven' - thanks Natasha for inviting me.
