Kenny’s June Blog:
It’s getting a bit crowded in the office lately. Not only do I have to vie with Ollie for position at the keyboard, now Mum’s at it too with her monthly column in the Sudbury Mercury!
Hello to all my new friends I met at a Copdock Primary School morning assembly last month. The Squirrells, Woodpeckers and Foxes classes presented me with £83.34 which they raised by holding a non-uniform day. The children were very well behaved as they heard about SESAW before lots of cuddles with Phoebe, an ex-SESAW dog, and me. The pupils wanted to support SESAW after a mother cat and kittens was found at the School and taken to the Sanctuary. The kittens were all happily rehomed and the mother returned to live with one of the teachers, Miss. Cross who you can see in the photo.
Thank you to everyone who helped raise £2500 at our Spring Sale in Long Melford. Visitors chatted to our Volunteers including wildlife guru, George Millins and his assistant, Jules and I modelled our new “Kenny Range” of jewellery handmade by our talented crafters, see photo.
Our next big event is our Open Day and Fun Dog Show on 30th July. All pooches welcome to join in the fun (with their humans) including a special class for ex-SESAW dogs. Meanwhile, unwind at our Summer Dance, 7.30pm on 1st July at Assington Village Hall then met us at the Vintage Fair at Melford Hall on1st/2nd July and at the Long Melford Street Fair on 9th July.
Animals awaiting new homes include Bex, a shy, short haired tabby and white cat, dumped by her owner in London. By contrast, an active family is required for nine year old Poppy the Beagle, overlooked because of her age. She enjoys her walks and has lots of love and cuddles to give in exchange for a nice warm bed and a caring home.
Indoors a pheasant chick quietly cheeps, a recovering blackbird gently taps on his cage, hedgehogs rustle in their winter quarters awaiting release – then Ollie trots in with a baby rabbit in his mouth! Did he look silly when Mum returned it to the field after checking it over! Which reminds me, must be dinner time for all the dogs, including me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
