Bark in the Park

This little darling is a guide dog in training that we met over the weekend at Bark in the Park a Blue Peter event in support of Guide Dogs for the Blind.  There were six locations around Great Britain with sponsored walks, training displays, bands and a Braille trail. Where we were we saw a Roman Gladiator re-enactment and watched numerous mad people try the British Military Fitness Assault course.

And we read the story of Tom, the black Labrador retriever cross, who led his owner to safety through the chaos in and around Tavistock Square on the 7th July.


To think that there is an ideology that so hates dogs that a taxi driver of that persuasion will not pick up a blind person with a guide dog,  will not allow a blind woman to take her guide dog on pilgrimage, and will kill the dogs beloved of the Zoroastrians of Iran.


I think I will keep saving the stamps.


My husband once asked the receptionist in our local vets what the guide dogs were doing with all the stamps I kept handing in.

“Saving up for a teasmade” she said.
