This will be the 5th Rural Crime Awareness Day hosted by Essex Police.
This summer there was much reminiscing about England's football success in 1966 and the heat wave of 1976. We dogs don't mind listening to these memories so long as we don't have to wait on a hot pavement during the conversation. Even my Mexican roots don't protect my little pads in that weather! Despite the heat, the Melford Street Fair was a good day for all concerned. Let's hope some volunteers come forward to continue this great annual event.
Mum has been kept busy with the usual young domestic and wild orphans brought in through the summer including a baby seagull. Naturally, as top dog around here, I introduced myself and received a sharp peck through the bars for my trouble. Charming.
We have been invited to the Beth Chatto Gardens Wildlife Fair, Elmstead Market CO7 7DB. This is a beautiful venue for two days of fun family events on Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd August. September is busy starting with a stall at the Wickham St. Paul Dog Show, CO9 2PT at 1pm on Saturday 8th, our Autumn Fair at Gt.Bentley Village Hall, CO7 8LG, 11-3pm on Sunday 16th and a stall for two days on Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd at the National Country Show Live at Hylands Park, CM2 8WQ
Our garden is also lovely thanks to our helpers putting in hours of hard work and I'm off to smell the flowers. Maybe they will name a rose after me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.

Bring on the Big Battle with
Helen Rollason Cancer Charity!
Helen Rollason Cancer Charity are inviting the brave and courageous to take part in our brand new Big Battle challenge on Saturday 29th September 2018.
The 5km course will test your endurance, speed and strength, all in the name of charity. A personal trainer will escort and encourage groups of participants around the course which will see you take on the famous Nuclear Races obstacles including the 15 lane Zip-wire into water and 20' free-fall Deathslide. Have you got the nerve?
Participants should expect an ultra-muddy and obstacle-loaded course from Nuclear Races who are well known for delivering award winning races with high quality obstacles that will test your fitness as well as your nerve. Held at the The Event Village, Parsonage Farm, Ongar Road, Brentwood, opposite the Secret Nuclear Bunker in Kelvedon Hatch; the event is open to individuals and teams aged 13 or over.
Our inaugural Big Battle challenges all levels of fitness ability and ages, testing courage, determination, teamwork and physical strength. Based on permanent farmland with mud, woods, rivers and lakes, Big Battle pushes participant's limits over a fun combination of big and small obstacles. Hot drinks and snacks will be served at the end of the event.
Janet and Charlie from J C Designs Ltd in Braintree are two brave participants taking on the challenge!
Janet Peacock, 63 from Braintree said "We are really looking forward to taking part in the very first Big Battle event for the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity. My husband, two daughters and granddaughters who are four and six will all be coming along to cheer me on. I've been preparing for the challenge by eating a lot of cake and painting my toenails; what else do I need to do!?
It's completely out of my comfort zone but I've set myself the challenge and I'm determined to complete it. It is so important to me that I support the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity which is so close to my heart."
