The South Suffolk Show

Yesterday we attended the South Suffolk Show. Russian Blake who has now retired joined us.
Given Blake had never met other breeds of dogs or men with bells on and had never seen a funfair or heard a brass band he coped remarkably well after a nervous start.
Thank you to our Ambassadors Toby, Roy, Charlie and Martha for helping to show Blake the ropes and to all who visited our stand.

Sleep Tight Beautiful Flora

Sad news. Beautiful Flora has crossed the rainbow bridge.
Flora attended our walks on a regular basis and often met up with her younger brother Phantom. Let’s hope Phantom was there to greet her as she crossed.
Below is Flora’s family’s lovely tribute to her.
“It is with great sadness that we let you know that we have had to say goodbye to our lovely Flora (Mullpark Flora) on 22 April.Flora was a lovely, happy and gentle girl, born at Dillymore on 17/02/2010 and has been a huge part of our family since 09/2013.She loved her food, early morning walks and sniffs and life in general. Recently she’d not been eating very well, not so keen to go for walks and losing weight. After numerous tests our vet suspected a tumour because of her symptoms. So after 8 years and 7 months it was with a heavy heart we had to make the awful decision to let her go. We are both heartbroken.Thank you lovely Flora for all the happy memories. We miss you but will never forget you.”
Mullpark Flora 17/02/2010 – 22/04/2022
Thank you for the wonderful life you gave Flora. May her beautiful soul fly high and free with her siblings who have gone before her.You will be much missed sweetheart.xx

A Tribute to Jose

We have had some heartbreaking news.
Sadly Jose (King Zlatan) has crossed the bridge. Jose was such a little trouper having become a tripod after loosing a leg to the dreaded cancer. His family have written a tear jerking yet wonderful tribute to him. Our hearts go out to them.
“On the 23rd of March our beautiful boy Jose passed away. His remaining front leg fractured and x-rays showed signs of osteo again so we had no choice but to let him go””We always feared this day would come but after proving all the experts wrong and making it two years cancer free we hoped his luck had changed but sadly not”
“Jose was the most gentle, sensitive loving soul who did not deserve to be taken so young but the old Chinese proverb is true The flame that burns twice as bright burns half as long”
“Although we are struggling to fill the void we are grateful to have the wonderful memories and we both agree it was the best few years of our lives with our happy little family”.

Run free from pain dear Jose your brave and determined spirit were an inspiration to all that knew and loved you. xx
King Zlatan Jan 2016 to March 2022

Mistley Walk

56 dogs and their families enjoyed a beautiful walk in the spring sunshine at Mistley today.
The short walkers took a stroll along the river front and the long walkers went through the woods to Furze Hill.
Amazingly 14 and a half year old Amber did both!
Many thanks to Film Star Freddie for leading the long walk, Sharon for collecting donations totaling £49.80 for the owners of Mistley Place Park who kindly allowed us to use their car park and toilet facilities. This will help with the upkeep of the animals that remain at the park since it’s closure.
Many more photos can be found on our Facebook page.
