Any chance you can let me know where I can get these poppies please? 🙏
I just saw a man abuse his scared small dog in Marble Hill Park while his girlfriend stood there. The dog just sniffed where Jimmy was sniffing and apparently that annoyed him. He choked him and hit him in the face. Dog was a thin longer haired ginger dog, small/medium, with curly tail. Couple was in their mid to late 20s, white.
A gentle observation of closing Marble Hill House park because of COVID 19. We are all trying our best to observe social distancing. The effect of closing Marble Hill House Park has been to concentrate people on the Thames path where social distancing is harder than in a wide open space. Might you consider this when you review the policy? I think it may have an opposite effect to that intended.
So loved the doggie drop in morning. It would be fantastic if we could have some more and a place to have some agility dog training ?? It is lovely to see Rachel's reality dog training sessions there in the park every week.
