Good Morning World!Canine Capers Charlton House 2018…

It was another Canine Capers event at Charlton House and what a fantastic day it was full of fun, laughter and excitement had by all. The weather was amazing, a little extra hot for the dogs but we had plenty of water and shaded areas for them to cool down. As usual I have to admit that I laughed so hard as the dogs and the people were so entertaining. As per usual the fans went above and beyond cheering for their favourite dogs, you know who you are!!!!! We love it.
We have to thank a few people who really support us; Thanks Kat at Kats and Dogs http://katsanddogs.co.uk/contact/ who attended and donated a few prizes, Lauren at The Dog House Grooming and Boutique https://the-doghouse.org in Eltham for donating a few raffle prizes, Steve and Jo who are always there when I need them for the printing our posters at Profile Print Solutions in Aldgate, London E1 1LU http://www.profileprint.co.uk. A big big thank you to Isabel for all her hard work volunteering on the day and to all the committee members for their contribution organising in the run up to the event but most of all Mikaela Rice for the wonderful posters.
Thank You to you all and your fabulous dog’s for your support attending our Canine Capers events, we look forward to seeing you at our next events.
Enjoy the pics. xXx

Hello World! Wonderful News – Miracles do happen, Holly has been found…

Holly’s Story

After going missing 6 months ago on 22nd February Holly is home! Holly was finally reunited with her family last week Tuesday 7th August. She was found by a couple in Essex after they saw her walking in the road. The couple managed to coerce Holly over to them pretty easily, after which they took her to the nearest Pets at Home to be scanned. Holly’s mummy June received the call late Monday night 6th August from Pets at Home in Essex telling her that they have Holly but she still couldn’t believe that they had found Holly all the way in Essex. The next morning June rushed over to Essex to get her baby girl. After talking to June, even though she always had hope that one day Holly would be found she just couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw her little girl.

Holly is in good health and has not one scratch on her body, she has lost a little weight and was glad to get back home to her pink cosy bed.

As you can see in the pictures at first sight Holly is unrecognisable but after a wash and groom she is back to little ole Holly.

Holly’s Adventures

There is a possibility that Holly was taken to Essex by travellers. June was informed by Pets at Home in Essex that a few days before Holly was found a couple of young boys came in without a dog but was enquiring how much it would be to groom a dog. They had no idea of the breed but pointed out a Bichcon Frise after Essex Pets at Home showed them some pictures of dogs. The boys left and never came back!

We are so happy for Holly and that she survived the cold, the heat and god only knows what else along the way.

If it wasn’t for Holly being chipped she would not be home with her family.

Please get your dog microchipped

You must make sure your dog is fitted with a microchip by the time it’s 8 weeks old.
You can be fined up to £500 if your dog isn’t microchipped.
The rules are different if you’re in Scotland or Wales.
Who can microchip your dog?
Your dog’s microchip must be fitted by a trained professional, for example a vet.
You can ask the following to microchip your dog for free:
Battersea Dogs and Cats Home
Blue Cross centres
Dogs Trust
You can also ask your vet or local council if they can microchip your dog. They might charge a fee.

We would like to ask if you could please help June’s friends and family take all the posters down as there have been a couple of heartless people more concerned about the blatant vandalism of the lamppost than the concern for a lost dog! If everyone takes down a poster along their travels that would be really helpful.

June and her family would like to thank everyone who contributed in trying to help find Holly.
Welcome home Holly, you are truly blessed. Miracles do happen! xXx
