Kenny’s September News:
After a hectic July and holiday season August, I’m looking forward to September when the equilibrium is restored. Ollie and his feline pals don’t pay much attention but we dogs miss our human friends when they go away.
Thank you to everyone who helped raise over £4000 at our Open Day, Fun Dog Show and BBQ. All the food was gone by hometime, visitors played games, met the animals and listened to the Long Melford Silver Band. Even the weather was good.
Local SESAW fundraiser, Andy Cooper, endured all kinds of weather during his grueling three month sponsored walk from Land’s End to John ‘O Groats. Our hero was glad to be home after wearing out three pairs of boots during the 1200 mile trek. It’s not too late to donate to Andy’s Justgiving page at: www.justgiving.com/Andy-Cooper67
I hope Andy recovers in time for our Supper Dance with local band, Sound Brigade, 7.30pm on Saturday 24th September in Assington Village Hall. Tickets are £12.50, available from Marian on 01206 263113. Don’t miss our varied sale in the Sesaw front garden – mainly books, records, pictures and cameras the following weekend, 10-1pm on 1st and 2nd October. Prior to all this is our big Autumn Fair at Great Bentley Village Hall on 18th September. By the way, thank you to those who donated cat litter and kitten food over the Summer including my friends Val and Peter.
Guess what! I’ve got a new pen pal called Finlay the caring Cocker who lived up to his name when his Mum, Rebecca, sent us some of his toys . Mum made me pose for a photo before we were allowed to play with them. If you know Becca or Finlay from Brockley, please pass on my thanks and say they cheered up lots of our dogs awaiting rehoming.
Prior to our big day, a perfect ending happened thanks to our regular Estuary Life feature. One of our dogs was rehomed with her happy new owners who are just outside the circulation area. Luckily a reader put his friends in touch with SESAW and the dog is now enjoying a wonderful life with her adoring human family.
Meanwhile my friend Lexi still waits for that special family. She can never have enough cuddles and is good with children, although she has the staffie habit of occasionally knocking the younger ones over. Lexi needs to be the only pet and requires a secure garden to wander in. Mum says we also have many cats and kittens with endearing personalities that happen to be black or black and white. Personally I don’t understand what difference it makes. Surely everyone loves us animals whatever our appearance, especially little dogs that are mostly black like me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua?
