Dotty is bubbly and charming. What else would you expect from a dog who plays ball dressed in a smart lavender jacket?
She is fun to be around - not least because she likes muddy puddles. But beware, she doesn’t like playing with dirty toys so her carers at Battersea have to make sure she has her own supply of clean toys.
She likes footballs and hard rubber toys but forget them at bedtime as, at night, she likes a soft bed in her kennel.
Dotty loves to snuggle up and have a cuddle.
She adores human interaction and attention. She builds strong bonds and enjoys being with her people. But she has a sensitive side and can be shy at times.
If you would like to meet this lovely English Bull Terrier, she’s being cared for at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, Priest Hill, Old Windsor SL4 2JN.
Grand fundraiser to be held at former Royal residence Frogmore House
Battersea Dogs Home has three sites, Battersea in London, Brands Hatch in Kent and Old Windsor in Berkshire.
It is because of the strong association between Berkshire and Battersea Dogs Home that they have been selected to be one of the charities benefitting from the opening of Frogmore House and Gardens to the public this Summer.
Frogmore is set in the grounds of Windsor Castle’s Home Park and has limited days when it is open to the public but, for one day only, on Thursday June 9, you can visit Frogmore and the money raised will go to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
Although it is no longer a royal residence, Frogmore is used by the royal family for entertaining.
Queen Victoria loved Frogmore so much she chose to have a mausoleum for herself and Prince Albert there. For ticket details go to battersea.org.uk and type Frogmore into the search box.
It costs £40,000 a day to maintain all three Battersea Dogs Home sites so in order to raise funds, they are inviting us to hold a tea party on May 27.
They suggest we host either a delicate, sophisticated tea party suitable for well-behaved cats or a more rough and ready tea party suitable for those who prefer a barking-mad feast. They’ve got lots of ideas for successful parties so register your party at battersea.org.uk. More details from 020 7627 9327.
