Margaret Green Animal Rescue Country Fayre

Sunday 24th September 2017

On Sunday Margaret Green Animal Rescue held their annual Country Fayre out at Church Knowle. Margaret Green is the rescue we got Teddy from, and to support their cause, and because Church Knowle is in such a beautiful setting in the Purbeck Hills, we took Teddy there. It wasn’t a very nice day, though, and we eventually had rain. We also had a problem with Teddy who has decided he doesn’t like travelling in the car for more than about 10 minutes and so he gets anxious and whines and yaps. As the trip to Church Knowle is around 25 minutes this presented us with a bit of a challenge!

Anyway, this time I concentrated on photos of some of the dogs there. So we have a happy staffy.

A rather stunning staffy.

A beautiful English Bull Terrier (she was just adorable).

A very fluffy German Shepherd puppy, who just wanted to play with every dog she saw.

And a Border Collie who’s been there,seen it, done it.

It's all too much for some

There were also birds of prey there. Like this Russian Steppe Eagle.

There was also a demonstration using a Harris Hawk.

And, of course, I took some photos of Chris and Teddy. Firstly the more conventional one.

And then a slightly more unusual photo of the two of them.

And just a couple more from Sunday since Church Knowle is the place where Margaret Green houses all the rescues other than dogs. So here is a goose.


And a couple of sheep in the rain.

Teddy was a nightmare on the way home. I tried sitting in the back seat to be close to him, which helped a bit. I also gave him a peanut butter stuffed Kong, which kept him quiet for a while. We’re hoping that it’s a phase that’s going to pass.
