Those of you that follow us on Facebook and Twitter will know that every week we have a 'breed of the week'... and we post lots of photos, information, articles and links about that particular breed. Its actually been a very rewarding project because its so interesting to find out more about certain breeds and its given us the opportunity to meet more dog owners and speak to people like breeders or who run charities and rescue centres.
We recently had an English Springer Spaniel week, and got the opportunity to find out more about ESSW which has been rescuing and re-homing English Springer Spaniels for more than 20 years. The charity is run by Sandy Waldon and amazingly they are re-homing over 200 English Springer Spaniels every year!
Obviously helping so many dogs can be very expensive and ESSW do a lot of fundraising in order to help fund their charity... but this has got a lot harder in recent years due to the economic climate. They are currently looking for help to buy the van that they lease, as the lease expires in June... so can we ask that if any of you have some spare time and maybe a few spare pounds that you head over to their website and make a donation to a very worthy cause.
