I believe in miracles and we certainly need one!

Have emailed the kennels in Holland this morning to see if there is any room for negotiation re the Saturday deadline for the dogs disposal. Heart in mouth, will we get more time? Will they release the dogs to the kind chap in Belgium's care on a part payment to stop the bills mounting further?
Some really amazing donations made overnight via Just Giving. You lot really are inspirational.
Did you watch the BBC2 Horizon documentary last night - the Secret Life of Dogs.
The science of the human canine bond was very interesting. I find looking into Comet's little face I just can't give up on him - and now I know it's entirely normal to feel this way!
I am so looking forward to the day when we can see Comet and Co reunited with their family.
Let's give this another push. We need a miracle, but I still believe in them!

If enough of us make even a tiny effort we can achieve anything! Click here for more of the story and click here for the Tailwaggers blog.

Well done Beverley. Fingers & toes crossed.
Re Tailwaggers, Paul 'newly retired' O'Grady would be a good celeb to get on the committee surely? Worth a thought?

I'm loathe to do that as I think there's probably a certain amount that's been lost in translation between the kennels and the Sullivans due to language barriers and the stress of being unable to pay their bills. The kennels had dropped their fees, but the Sullivans were still unable to pay at the new rate due to unforeseen circumstances.
I didn't get to communicate directly with the kennels, my email went unanswered but I'm told they aren't English speaking which may explain the problem. The money was owed and technically kennels can repossess your pets if you don't pay your bill, sad but true!
It's over now, the dogs were well looked after and they'll soon be home. Phew.

"If I had allowed your comment through it would be unsubstantiated defamation and being anonymous I have no way to contact you directly to enquire what it is you were hinting at." well this is pot calling a kettle black situation Ms Cuddy, afterall you only do post what you want to be seen and dismiss other who disagree with you (or even worse try and under mine or be little them) as the Liverpudddlian phrase is your just a "gob on a stick" and only bever peddle you one side views , perhaps like the people at Passionate Production who will have to face the music soon when the ofcom decisionis broacast of thier lies and decites (shame the OFcom was buckeldd to pressure to change from the original decisons on that sham of a program)you too will soon reaslise your voice may be load but i does not always make it right in the canine world.

I'd rather hear loud voices than no voices :-)
Be very sad if we all sat around doing nothing about anything!The whole point of speaking is to enable debate and promote the flow of communication which usually uncovers the truth.If I ever need help I hope there's a 'Beverly' around to support me. x
