Today Polar and I attended a day clinic with Caroline Ingraham - check her website here to discover the incredible work she does, including with the RSPCA and other animal welfare organisations in the UK as well as one or two Spanish vets.
Her stay in our area of France included visiting farm animals and an equestrian livery yard. Today the subject was dogs. I'd been invited to take Polar along because of his disability. There were two other dogs present, French rescued dogs - one a little hunting dog like a beagle without a tail who had been very badly beaten, with no confidence atall, and the other a labrador x who had spent his early years on a short chain, forgotten about, who had jealousy problems.
So we had 3 dogs with very different problems.
