Reminder from Carol….
think we all know about keeping our dogs safe in hot weather, but don't
necessarily know the course of action to take is we see a distressed dog in a
hot car. This came today from the Education Officer at the Blue Cross, it is
This is the information given to the public by the police
when they see a dog in a hot car:
● If the animal is displaying any sign of heatstroke - such as panting heavily,
drooling excessively, is lethargic or uncoordinated, or collapsed and vomiting
- call 999 immediately;
● If the situation becomes critical and police can't attend, many people's
instinct is to break into the car to free the dog. But please be aware that,
without proper justification, this could be classed as criminal damage. Make
sure you tell the police of your intentions and take photos or footage of the
dog as well as names and numbers of witnesses. The law states that you have a
lawful excuse to commit damage if you believe that the owner of the property
that you damage would consent to the damage if they knew the circumstances;
● Once removed from the car, move the dog to a shaded/cool area and douse
him/her with cool water. Allow the dog to drink small amounts of cool water.
You can call the RSPCA's 24-hour emergency cruelty line on
0300 1234 999 for advice but, if a dog is in danger, dialling 999 should always
be the first step as they may not be able to attend quickly enough and their
officers have no powers of entry

Hi Alan and all our friends at CCEG,
On the 28th of February I could
only dream that the day would come that I could sit in the sun and
watch my lovely dogs train with my husband by my side. I didn't know if
he would survive or if he would have a future, life was pretty hard
with my own injury proving very difficult to get out into the real world
and have some kind of normality in my life every week, with the help of
Jan to take me to training you all provided me with courage and support
to face another week. I will never be able to thank you all for what
you have done, you may think you didn't do anything but just asking
after Richard with just that little word of encouragement meant so much,
so I thank you all.
Richard has a long journey ahead of him but
today you saw how far he has come and his determination will carry him
all the way. He really enjoyed his first outing from Addenbrookes doing
what he loves, to watch Baxter and "Little Tiily Brown" train. The sun
shone and everyone was so generous in there kind comments, we can't
thank you enough! Don't worry Alan the beers are on Richard when I allow
him to drink, I'm sure that won't be so long away.
So you may all
find over the summer months there maybe a man who can't yet train his
beloved Baxter just yet, he may just sit on the sidelines and look on
and think to himself God how lucky am I?
Our Sincerest and Kindest Regards to you all

We now have a Microchip Scanner.... testing we discovered one dog that had been chipped didn't register on the scanner...the chip had 'gone' or stopped working. So after a visit to the vet (who also couldn't find it) a new chip was inserted.
So, if you would like your dog's chip checked please ask.
When using it at the weekend we found most dogs showed concern having the scanner placed near their neck... So, Pat suggested we do this as a training class exercise.... so we will do this by passing the scanner round to a difference class each week.
“Dogs’ lives are short, too short, but you know that going in. You know
the pain is coming, you’re going to lose a dog, and there’s going to be
great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her, never fail to
share her joy or delight in her innocence, because you can’t support the
illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion. There’s such beauty
in the hard honesty of that, in accepting and giving love while always
aware it comes with an unbearable price. Maybe loving dogs is a way we
do penance for all the other illusions we allow ourselves and for the
mistakes we make because of those illusions.”
When seeking out information on diet, and other matters relating to
your dog's well-being, and where advice is offered as the result of research,
than if possible check out who funded the research -research for the most part
will find in favour of the company funding it.

Bloat or GDV
While most people have probably heard of 'bloat', you may not know the symptoms and signs.
The ASPCA state that "bloat refers to a life-threatening condition that requires immediate veterinary care known as gastric dilation-volvulus (GDV), gastric torsion and twisted stomach. This condition can cause rapid clinical signs and death in several hours." Causes vary greatly, but some factors can include rapid eating, overeating, heavy exercise after eating, fearful temperament and stress. Bloat also mainly affects large, deep-chested breeds.
- distended abdomen
- unsuccessful attempts to belch or vomit
- retching without producing anything
- excessive salivation
