While our very own Crap Fairy has a bit of a rest from writing, though not from litter-picking, here is a reminder to all you dog owners: Some admonitions to good behaviour, however, have more enthusiasm than grammar. Here’s one dog owner who took the advice literally:
Hearing the first fireworks being set off this evening reminded me how terrified one of my dogs used to be at this time of the year. I thought therefore I’d look up some advice if you have a pet who us currently shaking and hiding themselves away from the bangs. This from the RSPCA website: Fireworks […]

Ryedale Dog Rescue was formed in 2005, to re-home abandoned and unwanted animals within the Ryedale area.
