I'm not 100% sure that her "allergy" was to fabric softener, but am really annoyed that she is not responding to me as I do want to know! I don't know what she said to the SPA, but having heard one say that the dogs are well cared for makes me wonder if she'd said that they weren't. i'm off tomorrow for the Saluki and Afghan hound breed club show on Saturday , which is a five hour drive, so I'm staying overnight. The Cavaliers will be going to the kennels at 10:00 tomorrow morning, and Charline very kindly said that although the kennels are usually closed on Sundays I can collect them on Sunday morning. It will be a bit expensive, but I can be sure they are being properly looked after and safe :-)
