    We're hoping to attend this rally (currently on the reserve list) however we need to bring our dog with us so I've just checked with The Loft and The Bistro to see what the policy is regarding dogs. The Loft allows them inside after 15:00 which is when they stop serving food. The Bistro doesn't allow them inside at all but has said that it's OK outside where there are tables and chairs (brrrrrrrr!!). Just wondered if anyone else is taking their dog(s) as we don't want to be 'Billy No Mates' just because we can't join in with some of the frivolities inside. Thanks.

    I take it your dogs cannot be trusted being left in the van during the socialising bit then. We are taking a dog but would leave her in the van during the evening frolics. You will certainly not be Billy no mates for any doggy walking activities that may go on.

    The reason we can't leave her is, since we lost our other dog last month, she has developed separation anxiety and can't be left even for 1/2 hour before she starts howling (and pooing!).

    Arr bless her. Is she Ok with other people? I am sure we could arrange shifts so you could have your dinner in the restaurant. Then if they allow dogs in after service has stopped you could bring her in then.

    We took ours last year and we don't leave her in the van. Didn't have a problem only we couldn't have breakfast in the cafe.
    Taking her again this year.

    She is absolutely fine with other people. I was wondering whether there might be any responsible teenagers (is this an oxymoron?) who are attending the rally but don't want to be with the oldies and are up for watching TV in a nice warm van whilst dog sitting for a fee.
    However, we are on the reserve list so may not get to go anyway.

    Oh bless, poor dog. Have you tried the dog equivalent of Feliway? I used a Feliway diffuser for my cat and t helped a lot. There is a dog equivalent, just can't think of the name.

    Failing that, maybe another dog needs to live with you..............

    That's a good idea - I will find out what it is. This year has been a very difficult year for me animal-wise so I've decided that, when we lose our Dolly, I will try to have a little bit of 'dog free' time. Just been looking at your avatar and one of your dogs looks very much like our Dolly. Going to try to post a photo of her now - wish me luck!!

    It's called Adaptil for dogs and I've just ordered some.
    If it works me and hubby are going celebrate our first taste of freedom by going to the flicks to see Captain Phillips.................. I can almost taste the popcorn already!
