My friend Julie has organised a Neal's Yard 'virtual' party on Saturday 29th November, all day and evening. It's a fundraiser for Pepis Refuge. Take a look at her website here, lots of lovely natural products, to treat/pamper yourself and as gifts for friends for Xmas. I use the foot balm for tired feet(!), joint capsules, lip gloss - all suitable for sensitive skins too. You can order any time, but the 29th is specifically for Pepis. It's also on facebook.
One of the dogs you will be helping is Petra, who was recently dumped tied to the main gates with a tight cord round her neck. Jane Brian says it is a long time since they have a dog so terrified of life as Petra. Below you can see the neck cord (against Alan's hand). If you look carefully behind the blue bed, you'll see her hiding there. It makes it difficult to clean the kennel as, besides humans, she is terrified of the brush, shovel, water to clean the concrete.
