Alabama Rot update

Updated February 1, 2015 Categories: news.

Latest update on Alabama Rot from Anderson Moores…
“29th January 2015 update
There have been six further confirmed cases of cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV) over the past few weeks (Hampshire, Greater London, Dorset, Berkshire, Kent and East Sussex). An additional case treated at Anderson Moores was considered highly likely to have had CRGV and fortunately survived, meaning that a definitive diagnosis was not made (since this requires post mortem testing).
The Forestry Commission are no longer hosting a table with the exact geographical location of cases. At this stage we do not know for certain if there is an environmental trigger for CRGV. Indeed, if there is an environmental trigger we do not know when, in relation to the development of clinical signs, this occurs (e.g. environmental exposure could occur one day, one week, or one month before clinical signs develop). Any information posted about geographical location may therefore not be that relevant given dogs are often walked in different areas. Updates and further information will continue to be posted on this webpage with the broad geographical location of cases.”

As many of you know, Eileen in Ireland has worked endlessly saving the lives of many dogs who otherwise would have been put to sleep.

Eileen has come over this weekend from Ireland especially for the DAWG Dog Annual Dog Show and would absolutely love to see as many of the Irish dogs as possible.

If you own one of these Irish dogs, it would be very much appreciated if you could bring them along to the show on Sunday for Eileen to meet.  This would mean a great deal to her.

Thank you so much

We all had a good day at the Scouts Summer Fete on Saturday.
Bones and Cookie joined us and several ex DAWGdogs came and gave their support.
Thank you to Kevin, Nicky, Jackie and Niki for helping out again this year.
Extra thanks to Nicky for organising the raffle.

Please take a moment to help the Oldies Club

The Oldies Club have often helped out DAWGdogs by featuring some of our older dogs needing homes on their website.
It would be nice to return the favour by getting as many people as possible to vote for them please;-

We are taking part in the Big Break for Charity and need lots more votes to hopefully push us into second or possibly even first place in the contest, and help us win up to £2,000 for the dogs in the care of the Oldies Club rescue. I hope that you will have a spare minute to vote for us here:

You can also vote by texting BIG BREAK 0616 to 78866

If you could spread the word amongst your friends and colleagues too, that would be wonderful and very much appreciated.
Thank you!

Kind regards

Updated May 11, 2014 Categories: fundraising, news.

[update Sun 11th pm]

The cakes and dog delights that we have taken into Pets at Home this weekend have been a great success.
There may well at the end of the day be a few left over for tomorrow if you are lucky so do come down to Pets at Home at Branksome and buy a few raffle tickets.
I had to test them of course and can confirm they are heaven in cake form.
Lord Ash tested the dog delights and has confirmed they too are worth a second tasting if he can nick a few from the table.

Thank you to Viki, Angela, Scarlet and Stephanie for keeping us supplied with cakes
( I do hope there are a couple left over for me to finish off tomorrow. They are well worth breaking a diet for)
Thank you also to Lee , Marjorie and Webster who cooked up lots of dog Doughnuts, Muffins and Paw shaped carob treats for the dogs.

[update Sun 11th am]

Spike has been hard at work this morning and all day yesterday helping to sell raffle tickets.
Here he is taking a well earned break.
This afternoon Lord Ash known as Ash to his friends will be helping Pat and Frankie.
Lots of delicious cakes left so do come along and buy a ticket to support the Rescue.

We will have in addition to cakes;- Muffins and Doughnuts specially made for dogs for all those woofers that may want to buy three tickets and grab a treat!

Ask Spike nicely and he’ll let you have one for free if you buy some raffle tickets from him!
