Wellard, Eastenders, and the Pedigree Chum advert!

Have you seen the Pedigree Chum advert [UK readers] about Marley & Me?

In the centre of the group of dogs watching is a Belgian... do you think he looks a little like Wellard from Eastenders?

Actually he should do! He is the 'Wellard' actors grandson... so Wellard is now a proud grandma of a budding animal actor!

Note: [This is just an update for all followers of Wellard on my various blogs - and will be posted on them all!]

Yet more snow! Plus frozen canals with long grass covered in snow overhanging the edges... DO TAKE CARE!

Looking forward to the better weather and travelling to Flyball and Agility shows and training... I am happy to advertise FREE any upcoming events, so that more people can know about, and hopefully attend those events, and learn what fun can be had when their animals become involved in these sports.

The WEATHER plus news of a New Doggy Blog

The winter here in the UK seems to have been going on for ever! Dogs get covered in mud or soaked every time they go out for exercise. Not to mention the dangers of frozen stretches of water in ponds and canals especially - let's hope it is soon over and we get a drier and better spring and summer which is more suited to outdoor pursuits, especially dog agility!

There is a new blog which has just started at Lhasa Apso Potty Training which deals with all sorts of doggy behaviours. Do please click over and see what you think!

Who knows a good title, or headline for this post?

Discover How You Can Have Your Own Successful Business
Online In 30 Days ... Or LESS!

Every once in a while, something comes along that changes
the way that people do business online. Sometimes it's a
new software product, sometimes it's a traffic generator.

Right now, online marketer Richard Legg is putting the
finishing touches to his new online marketing course

"Succeed In 30 Days - How anyone can have an online
business in a month or less"

I've had a sneak preview of the course and I can tell
you it is absolutely amazing. If you are a newbie, or
if you've tried every program under the sun... and failed, this WILL help you finally succeed online. As part of the
course you'll discover:

> How to have your own "Online Empire" even if you have
absolutely no experience.

> How to generate a list of Hungry buyers for ANY site.

> How to advertise to millions of people legitimately.

> How to get the most essential tool, that every marketer
needs. Without it, you could lose 90% of sales.
(You'll be shown how to get it at No-Cost!)

> Plus: Instant Access to a resource that can make you
$50 or more within one hour of joining.

Plus much, much more...

As you can guess, a package like this could easily sell
for hundreds *BUT* act now and you can get instant access
at no cost to you whatsoever!

Not many people know this, but in order to tweak and
perfect the course, Richard is GIVING away a limited number
of V.I.P memberships to the first few people to visit the
site and join up. This way he can get feedback and improve it.
Once he's confident, he's going to start charging up to
$197 - $297 for the course.

I have been given access to a special V.I.P link to share
with a few people. Visit the site now, and you can join
for absolutely nothing. You can save hundreds!

Succeed in 30 Days

Like I said, there are only a limited number of V.I.P
memberships and many are gone already. If you want to
grab a copy, you must visit now and secure it before
someone else does..

Succeed in 30 Days

Mutts v. pedigree dogs!

Did you see the much publicised Pedigree Dogs Exposed [on UK TV] which has left most dog breeders and exhibitors incredulous and angry, and others feeling that it may have served as a timely reminder that there are issues that need addressing by the KC and breeders before it becomes too late?!

Then there was the Martin Clunes dog programme [in 2 parts] which was MOST interesting... and did touch on the same negative health problems occuring in pedigree dogs in the last programme. If you missed both programmes and own a pedigree dog do try and see if any of your friends taped the programmes. Most worrying!

The health problems appear to be getting worse and worse. Just looking at some breeds makes you worry - think of the poor Alsations, whose back ends and legs look all wrong, and from what was said on the programme it is being encouraged by the Kennel Club as the way they should be! But it causes untold problems later in life, and not that much later, either!

Arthritis, heart problems, heads too small for the brain, poor articulation, breathing problems, and so much more is being increasingly found within the pedigree dog breeds - in breeding is a major problem, as is breeding for required TYPE for showing. More worryingly, dogs with known problems are being made champions and are being bred from in large numbers - increasing the problem exponentially.

If you are thinking of a new dog for your sport - a working dog, from working stock, a mixed breed, a Heinz 57, would all be perhaps better bets.

The mental anguish, the vets costs, and the final outcome of this ticking time bomb is something perhaps best avoided.

It was horrific to hear how some of those poor animals suffered, and all in the name of 'best of breed'! I know of several people who couldn't bear to watch all of the programme - but it is best publicised, whilst hopefully, there is still time to at least partially reverse the harm being done to pedigree breeds.
