On Saturday the 5th of September I made the trip to Primrose Hill Park in London to support Pup Aid.
Pup Aid is a campaign to end the UK’s cruel puppy farming industry and was founded in 2010 by TV vet Marc Abraham, who I’ve met a couple of times, and it has received enormous support from a nation of animal lovers including celebrities Brian May, Ricky Gervais and Liam Gallagher to name but a few.

It was lovely to meet so many humans who totally love their canine pals. There was a fun dog show and many stalls supporting the cause. I was lucky enough to be allowed in the press area where several celebrities made a fuss of me and posed for photos.

Never ever purchase a puppy from a pet shop, or from an advertisement in the newspaper or on the internet. Chances are the puppy has come from a puppy farm – so please do not fuel the trade, causing even more puppies and breeding bitches to suffer. When purchasing a puppy always ask “Where’s mum?’ Visit the premises where the puppy is kept and ask to see their kennelling conditions. Do not arrange to meet people at a service station or anywhere other than where the puppy is living!!
Puppy farming in the U.K. is a cruel practice and has to be stopped! It is purely for profit without a thought for the welfare or happiness of the pup, breeding bitch or stud dogs.
