    the fun begins

    Sorry guys , having to piggyback on your thread, have forgotten how to start one. I just had quite a few facebook warnings about dogs becoming seriously ill and 3 apparently passed away at the Stratford show. Initial warnings mention staying away from the racecourse, greenway, river avon and the rec. This is from another non subscriber motorhomer group, again on facebook.

    I read that but also reading between the panic stricken FB lines it seems that there is some sort of Norovirus going around which dogs could pick up in lots of other places as well

    Thanks - I had trawled for information but didn't spot that one. Much more credible than allegations of people putting poison down that I saw on FB


    Doesn't really say a lot but it looks like a diarrhoea and vomiting bug. Our Jack Russell had something similar in Norfolk the other week. Clearly some dogs are susceptible to this sort of bug. We will take our chances and still bring the dogs, but thanks for posting anyway and alerting people

    One of ours has just had her booster jab and shes been given a level 4 one..apparently this is an upgrade to the usual ones which are level 3 and provide some protection from this 'thing'

    A great afternoon at the races and finished £30 up too ::bigsmile: Lovely to be so close to such majestic beasts.

    Thanks for the dog info so we can be vigilant.

    Sorry JJ, didn't mean to tease. We'll be back to work next week if that's any consolation :ROFLMAO:

    Probably should have clarified that the majestic beasts I refer to were of the equine variety. I'm sure there are plenty of majestic humans too :winky:

    The river gently flowing

    Some more for JJ:winky:

    Living where we do in Spain we very seldom see a river with water in it and so it is a great delight to see the beautiful Avon doing what rivers are meant to do........ simply flowing along bringing pleasure (and employment) to so many. Quite beautiful!

    Here we gloat JJ:ROFLMAO:
