Jack has returned safe and well!

The errant Jack has returned home.

His people deserve a medal for putting up with his escapades for all these years!

This is Jack who has been missing since the weekend.
Jack was adopted many years ago and has always been an escape artist but usually comes home.
This time he has not and everyone is very worried about him as he is an old boy now.

Poison warning as dog falls ill after walk in New Forest

Poison warning as dog falls ill after walk in New Forest

DOG lover Philip Wilkinson has urged pet owners to be on their guard after his retriever became ill after a walk in the New Forest.

Nine-year-old Buster suffered severe sickness and a swollen stomach after a walk at South Oakley near Burley.

The black, flat-coated retriever was rushed to the PDSA hospital the following day and spent two nights on antibiotics and a drip before being allowed home.

“He is normally a very healthy dog so I think he must have eaten something poisonous,” said Philip, of Curzon Road, Bournemouth. “I don’t know if anyone had left anything deliberately or whether there are plants or fungi that are poisonous to dogs – I just wanted to warn people to keep an eye on their pets.”

Buster was unable to eat for several days but is now on the mend.

Veterinary charity the PDSA warns increasing numbers of pets are being treated for accidental poisoning.

Spokesman Alexander Campbell said: “Sadly many of those things can prove fatal. It is vitally important that owners keep any substances that can harm pets well out of reach and react quickly and responsibly if they suspect poisoning might have occurred.”
