No it doesn't. But you asked  'Where did it all go wrong?' and I've tried to answer that and I think we are all at fault. Where we go now is a much harder question.  You are lucky that Jamestown Boulevard has large open spaces  between flats/houses - ... [ more ]

dog and guinea pig boarding

Recommendations in Greenwich

Angela W
Can anyone recommend a dog kennel in Ipswich? I've seen a couple advertised but they seem rather big and I'm not sure they would be suitable for a nervous dog.  Also I have two guinea pigs which I need to board, any ideas?

Sorry Maisie, no difference!  I don't tend to use the phrase dog boarder as that's also what kennels do, and looking after someone's dog in your own home is nothing like putting them in a kennel!
