Apparently, we’re not the only cockapoos with new abodes …
Barnaby almost had this one – titled “If You’ll Excuse Me (It’s Me-Time)” – very appropriately title, but Julie decided to donate it to Blue Cross … Barnaby, does that mean you’re not camping out like us?
We got the one called “Untitled” but its very special. The dog sculpture is built by Serena de la Hey best known for her 40-foot high Willow Man near Bridgwater. And the kennel is made from more than 500 meters of willow was built by Coates English Willow.George tried out this one – “The Egg” by Bruce Oldfield and FT Architects, but we call it “The One That Got Away” …It would look so good in the office.
May’s comment: I had bidded for this absolutely beautiful kennel at the recent BowWow Haus Auction. It was in aid of Blue Cross for Pets – a registered animal welfare charity in the United Kingdom, founded in 1897.
We had the priviledge of going on a tour and was so impressed by what we saw.We saw some dental work being carried out!This is the post-surgery recovery roomThe x-ray roomLike many surgeries, the staff has to wear these white clogs!And we got to see the operating theatre – in action!But unlike human hospitals, there are quite a few muzzles hanging about! LOL!And then we saw something super special! New born kittens who have not even opened their eyes yet.Each one about half the palm of my hand. And this little one was coming towards me!!! How do you think Darcy and George would react to this little kitty?Blue Cross is an animal charity who have been helping sick, injured and homeless pets since 1897. They assist those who cannot afford to provide care and help for their pets. They rely solely on donations. The hospital is at Sheppard House, 1-5 Hugh St, Pimlico, London SW1V 1QQ
