Dear friends and neighbours.

If anyone needs dog walked anytime, please let me know. Perhaps I could do a light shop for you or ring you to say hello.

Do let me know. I would be happy to help.

Kindest wishes

Debbie

Be aware that you can only walk your own dog, and not a neighbour's. That was clarified very early on when people were using next door's dog as an excuse to go out.

Shopping can only be done for either yourself, or vulnerable people who are unable to go out. Although you can do it, you do need to justify it when you are stopped. You can only leave the shopping at their door, use a mask, and can't go in.

 Hi Debbie,   That's a very kind offer you have made . I am in the vulnerable category and  it can be quite lonely, although I am fine at the moment,. It is early days in this  unusual situation  and if I feel unable to go out shopping for food /meds, I will contact you again.

Thanks again for your kind thoughts...

El.

Thanks. I've fully followed the news. I would not put either myself or any other at risk. I offer my help within the parameters of Gov/Local Authorities, until such time as I'm advised otherwise. I would have an authentic reason if I were with a dog belonging to a neighbour and would invite whomsoever stopped me to accompany me to the person's home.

Irrelevant of that neighbours situation ,it wouldn't be your dog so no reason for you to be outside ,with that dog also not supposed to visit neighbours ,you do that in a real life action ,you know been awarded a fine .

I'm very happy to say that through the Authorities, I've fostered 2 dogs whose owners have been hospitalised. Irrelevant of that neighbour's situation...
