Now that’s something you don’t see every day. Maisie, the springer spaniel and I were invited to Lush Cosmetics because they were donating profits from their Charity Pot cream to SESAW. Suddenly we saw a human striding through the precinct with a tall contraption strapping to his back. Apparently it was the Google Earth guy, mapping the precinct with a 360̊ camera. And I thought he was there just to photograph me! Mind you, Maisie and I were soon the centre of attention again but I really didn’t know where to look when she rolled on her back for tummy tickles. That dog is SO embarrassing! We also called in to see our friends at Pets At Home where they have been selling scratch cards to raise money for SESAW.
If you visited “All About Dogs” at Hylands Park during the last Bank Holiday weekend you may have seen our SESAW stall manned (or is it womanned?!) by Jayne and Lorraine. The temperature soared to 31 degrees as they met hundreds of visitors from Essex, London, even Australia! They were accompanied by Jayne’s rescue dog, Frank who is so good at a big event like that. The gentle greyhound stood patiently as admirers stopped to stroke him in between his rest periods. As you can see in the photo, he was particularly taken with a whippet that set her cap at him!
Thank you to everyone who supported our sale at Newton Green last month. Over £500 was raised at our first visit to this delightful little village hall and we met lots of local residents. Our volunteers will be very busy attending lots of events in July starting with the Long Melford Street Fair on the 1st. After that are the Great Cornard Fete on 7th at the Stevenson Centre, the Eight Ash Green Music Festival on 21st July, a doggy day at the Beagle, Sproughton then it’s all systems go for our own Open Day and Fun Dog Show, 12-4pm on Sunday 29th July at the Sanctuary. The ladies are busy preparing gifts, crafts, plants and there are promises of yummy homemade cakes, a spinning demonstration and entertainment by the Hadleigh Ukulele Group. We really need some top class raffle prizes and would be grateful for any donations of suitable items. Leave a message on the ansaphone if you need anything collected. Please join us, you might even see me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
