Can I just check if any of you have not yet received your postal copy of the magazine? If you've not yet got yours, can you email me your address including postcode? The reason I'm a bit jumpy is that five of our remote workers haven't yet had their copies which were posted by our printers last week and we had a lot of calls in the office yesterday from other anxious people who still hadn't had their mag - which is unusual. My home and work seed copies arrived okay - so it looks like the bulk were posted, we just may have a sack or two that have got lost in the Royal Mail system.
The printers are investigating from their end - just wanted to get an idea of the scale of the problem.
Anyone receive their mag in damaged packaging? This month the mailing house appear to have used a different mailing bag and as we have a calendar and a sample of Vitalin food enclosed this could be part of the problem - although I need evidence if this is the case.
So can you email me if you got everything okay, your package was damaged or it has still not received.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Sorry about this folks!
Have you tried the free food sample yet? I split a bag between Oscar and Tess and sprinkled it on top of their Naturediet this morning. Tess hoovered it up with her usual speed but Oscar was fascinating to watch!
It was only today that I realised he has never eaten anything other than Naturediet and table scraps in our house (and Pigs ears and treats! And some childrens' shoes...) - he's not eaten dried food until today!
He ate each piece of kibble separately - chewing it suspiciously as if it might have a worming tablet concealed within it! Took ages, Tess was shaking with anticipation waiting for him to finally finish so she could lick the bowl. But he'd eaten every last bit when she did get there - so he did like it.
Will see how he does digestion wise, but the packet says it's full of good stuff - it's certainly changed since was a kid and we used to have great sacks of it for our pack of Beardies. Vitalin used to look like it had cornflakes in it when it was around in the 1970s! All changed now.
Our great breeder Wendy must have brought our Oscar up well as a pup, how very sensible it is to chew thoroughly before swallowing!
However, you'd not think it was the same dog who only a few days before was gobbling up a dead rabbit at record speed! He ate the eyes first - and no, he didn't chew then - he just swallowed - yeuk!!!
