My canine pals and I detect an air of fresh optimism amongst the humans. The volunteers talk of evenings out, day trips and going away when they pause for a quick coffee and chat. They also plan to fundraise at several events in September. Firstly, at the Plough Day at Badley Road, Great Waldingfield, CO10 9RY and a Dog Show at Leavenheath Village Green. Both of them on the 5th followed by a Fun Dog Show on the 11th at the Shelley Centre for Therapeutic Riding, IP7 5QY.
Meanwhile we have a delightful pair of elderly Border Collies, sadly homeless since their owner died. Eleven and ten year old Ruby and Renee are fit and well, adore their walks and being with you. If you are the special person with the loving home they deserve, please leave your name and number on the answerphone or email.
Everyone has a book in them, including one of our supporters. Frank Payne has written about his early life, from a wartime childhood in South East London to a promising career in sports journalism which was rudely interrupted by two years National Service. The author’s return to Civvy Street was peppered with disappointment and disaster, whetting the reader’s appetite for the next instalment later this year. “Here Today, Goon Tomorrow” is available for £5, all proceeds to SESAW, please phone or text 07881 785535 to order a copy. Mum says I’m not to get any big ideas, the world is not ready for the memoirs of me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
