Puppy farm protester ends seven days in ‘hell’

Welfare campaigner highlights the horror of ‘easy buy’ pups

An animal welfare campaigner who wanted to highlight the terrible conditions in puppy farms has ended her seven day protest.
Linda Goodman, founder of the group CARIAD (Care And Respect Includes All Dogs), lived and slept in a dog kennel for a week at an undisclosed farm location in Carmarthenshire in order to highlight animal welfare issues. CARIAD was created following peaceful protests against an application for a 196 dog ‘puppy farm’ in Carmarthenshire.

 ikc double weekend success

One of the most eagerly awaited events of the Irish show calender each year is the Irish Kennel Club International/National show double, which took place last weekend at the National Show Centre in Dublin where 1,773 dogs took part in the International day on Saturday.

A panel of Irish and overseas judges brought in a strong entry right across the groups and disciplines and sponsors Connolly’s Redmills, who were represented well as always by Rosemary Daly Meehan and Sean Meehan, must have been delighted with the support from the exhibitors, as would the organising team of the General Purposes committee of the IKC who made great efforts to ensure early finishing times for the weekend’s exhibitors, many of who stayed in the locality of the show centre and indeed many camped or caravanned on the grounds over the two days.

 Get your lenses out!

 judges envelopes

For some time the numbers of judge's reports we receive by post have been receding and the vast majority of show reports are now sent to OUR DOGS by email.
For this reason - and with the imminent large rises in the cost of first and second class mail - we will no longer send bulk mailings of envelopes to show secretaries.
If you are a judge with appointments this year - or even next year - and you will be posting your report to OUR DOGS, please call along to the stand at any general championship show and collect your pre-paid envelopes.
Alternatively, if you are a secretary and wish to collect envelopes for your show, they will be happy to oblige. And don't worry if you don't get to the champ shows, simply email Ann Cross on across@ourdogs.co.uk or call her on 0161 709 4550. Show reports by email to showreports@ourdogs.co.uk.
Envelopes will be posted in the normal way in the short term but this will cease as from May 1st. As ever both OUR DOGS and our readers are grateful for the efforts of all judges in submitting reports and trust that everyone understand the reasons for the changes.
We live in a changing world!

Weaning represents a very vulnerable time for puppies as many changes are taking place in their development. Their acquired immunity from the mother is waning and they are yet to be vaccinated by the vet, so they need to be in peak health throughout this period. Eukanuba Puppy Start can help with a smooth transition to solid foods.

•  Highly digestible ingredients and a natural fibre blend, including beet pulp, MOS and the prebiotics FOS to help support the natural balance of the intestinal microflora and to help optimise nutrient absorption.
• Excellent acceptance by puppies.
• No. 1 ingredient is chicken.
• Optimal ratio of Omega 6-Omega 3 for a healthy skin and radiant coat
• Gentle on the digestive system and promotes optimal nutrient absorption to reduce the risk of digestive upsets.
• No colourants or preservatives added
