Anybody who knows me, knows how much I love dogs.
I am delighted whenever a rescue dog gets a chance of a new home.
I am a proud supporter of the work of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
Recently a friend fell in love with this painting and asked if she could buy it:
so I asked her if she would mind buying this book for me and we would swap..
This book tells all about Battersea's 150 year history, from its humble beginnings in Holloway, through the diabolical way society treated animals at the time of Charles Dickens - and how Dickens visit and support helped turn the tide in favour of the Home.
Its a heart warming read - and best of all, all royalties go to Battersea to help further their work on behalf of homeless dogs.

And here, for those who love her, is my own Battersea girl, Missy.
Two years safe in Battersea waiting for us, they kept her that long, trying to find her a home.
Four and a half years, safe in our love.
