Checking out Dogs Trust at the library!

Ilfracombe's first talk of the year

Foxy in Budleigh Salterton

Thank you to everyone who attended our first Dogs Trust talk of the year today, which was held at Budleigh Salterton Library.

Foxy the Lab and I started the morning with a walk around the town, where we met lots of dog owners and their beautiful canine companions. In fact, it was very much a ‘walk and talk’, with a number of dog walkers asking about the charity and the different elements of our work. It is always lovely to be asked about Dogs Trust – so if you see myself and Foxy out and about, please feel free to stop us and say hello.

Anyway, then it was on to the library itself, where I gave a presentation to a wonderful group of people. My talk covered the history of the charity, as well as a focus on the Ilfracombe rehoming centre. I also touched upon various other Dogs Trust schemes, services and projects, such as our education work and our campaign to stop puppy smuggling. If you attended, I hope you found the talk both interesting and informative and enjoyed it as much as we did meeting you.

As you would expect, Foxy was the star of the show, as she walked around the library visitors, in search of fuss and attention – and she wasn’t left disappointed!

Of course, it is hard work for a Supporter Relations Officer dog… well, in terms of trying to resist all the lovely treats the library had laid on for the visitors! So, to help her unwind at the end of our talk, Foxy and I hit the Jurassic Coast. We didn’t catch any dinosaurs this time, but Foxy agreed the sea air and the sun on her face more than made up for it!
