I saw a advert on the television last night and thought of all the dogs who will no doubt be stressed out in the coming weeks, its for a Adaptil plug in diffuser which should help to calm a dog in stressful situations. As I used to have a dog who was ... [ more ]
My dog was scared and would lay under the plug and go to sleep, so it worked for her. I have two young dogs now and they don't seem too bothered thank goodness.
You can try preparing dogs by playing firework sounds (you can usually find something online) on your laptop, you then have control of the volume, put them on while you feed or play with your dog they then start associating the noise with something ... [ more ]

The vacant flats above the shops along St Matthews Street are undergoing another paint job. Going for dazzle camouflage this time around.
Can't be bad if it means more homes.

Figure of speech. It's a Suffolk thing I guess. When I need a hand in the building trade, I ask in the builders merchants if anyone knows of a lad not afraid of hard work. Way of life. In over 10yrs, I can count on one hand the female "trades" I have ... [ more ]

I did like my local Camden Rd CoOp. Very sad that it's closed. I hope the staff have been offered jobs in other branches.

Can anyone recommend someone to totally remove my hedge, including roots; remove a large tree and dispose of the evidence!
All depends what he does but believe me I am new to Suffolk and when I first came here I got ripped off left right and centre. Dave is very inexpensive.
