ENJOYING THE SUNSHINE …our Layla making the most of a sunny spell!
Boerboel Layla is clearly feeling better and full of the joys of spring, even if spring hasn’t quite arrived!
And Patterdale Tetley (aka the canine dynamo) takes full advantage of an improvement in the weather.
We would like to thank today’s heroes Marion, Richard and Lou for their help with the dogs. Great to see other human beings after the struggles of the last few days.
We would also like to thank our amazing plumber, Ian, who has been a frequent, but very necessary visitor thanks to the weather!
Disaster!! The shop has flooded due to a burst pipe in the cold weather. We were alerted by the staff of the Red Lion and rushed there to find water pouring through the ceiling. Huge thanks to our brilliant plumber for isolating the water supply and getting it down to a trickle in minutes. The cleanup begins tomorrow, so unfortunately we will be closed for the next few days while everything is cleaned, dried out and sorted.
Lots of dogs past and present were experiencing snow today, with mixed reactions.
Some , like Malamute Beowolf and Malina seemed to be loving it, whereas others like terrier Buster and Staffie boy Rocky seemed to greet the white stuff with strongly mixed feelings.
Bailey, an English Bull Terrier cross can’t quite believe his luck. Lots of delicious food and treats for him and his “special” friends.
Bailey, like some of our other residents, have food allergies which means he can only have certain approved hypoallergenic treats and foods, which have been kindly provided by supporter Anne Harper.

ALL SOUPED UP…and going….going….gone..
Home made chicken, pea and liver soup for our kennel dogs..
We are souping it up every day whilst the weather is cold.
All our dogs are coated at night and snug in extra deep bedding. Some are coated during the days, too-action man Lenny taste tests today’s soup-and heartily approves!
JUST A FEW pics from our fabulous St Valentines dog show, held today at Perranwell.
It was wonderful to see so many of you there-and so many gorgeous dogs! The difficult job of judging fell to our own Wendy End-bsl Carbis, aided and abetted by our patron Zoey Wright. This was Zoey’s first dog show, and I know she had the best time!
A whopping THANK YOU to everybody who came and took part, bought raffle and tombola tickets, had refreshments, bought dog biscuits, donated goods, and helped organise, cook and brew!
We made £388.53 for our dogs!
In our eyes you are all winners! See you next time!

Dog owners in Cornwall have been put on alert after fears that somebody purposefully put rat poison in meat which was later eaten by a dog.
One reported case took place while the pet dog was walking in the Paul area of Penzance at some point between Friday and Saturday (February 16 and 17).
Devon and Cornwall Police has now issued an urgent warning to dog owners as officers continue to investigate the worrying issue.
“We have received a report of rat poison, believed to have been contained within mince meat, being eaten by a dog while out on a walk in the Paul area of Penzance between Friday 16 and Saturday, February 17, 2018,” said a spokesman for the force.
The police added that if anyone has any information which may relate to this they should email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 101, quoting crime CR/015023/18.

REMEMBER OUR LOVELY supporter Daniel James?
Daniel made his Bodmin home into a Christmas light show to raise money for K9 Crusaders, and invited people to donate bedding, toys, food, treats and accessories.
Daniel raised £110 for our dogs.
We would like to thank all the kind people who donated, and of course Daniel for organising everything. 🙂
