Diary of a Dog – a birthday visit from Banditrqm
Fieldguard has always been public service minded and supports many good causes, including Pets as Therapy (PAT), a charity which provides therapeutic visits to hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes.
Bandit, a Fieldguard staff member’s dog, is pictured here wishing an elderly resident ‘happy birthday’ at a care home where he regularly visits as a PAT dog.
Bandit is, of course, the ‘author’ of the book The Diary of a Dog. Bandit’s diary is a touching and often hilarious account of his, and his lurcher companion’s adventures. Stories which would undoubtedly resonate with all people who have ever been ‘owned by a dog’.
All proceeds from the book are assigned to charities supporting greyhound re-homing and rescue, all of which are primarily supported by voluntary funds. Charities supported by Fieldguard include Celia Cross Greyhound Rescue and The Retired Greyhound Trust.
