Spring coat care

Redditch Advertiser: Spring coat care

10:25am Thursday 17th April 2014

With spring in full swing it is time to give your canine friend a bit of TLC after a long, wet and muddy winter and as the temperature rises. During the colder months we often avoid bathing our dogs to prevent chills and to maintain healthy grease in their coats and we can sometimes get a bit relaxed about completing their regular brush and groom and nail clip too! So why not use spring as inspiration to treat your dog to a full service? Whether you are preparing for spring or summer dog shows or simply giving him a clean up ready to enjoy the warmer weather, he is sure to appreciate your efforts!

Kevin Bryan's Record Reviews

Billy Bragg,"Live at the Union Chapel London" (Cooking Vinyl)- The atmospheric Union Chapel in Islington provided the venue for a very special Billy Bragg concert in June 2013, as the Bard of Barking and his impressive band regaled their London audience with some choice extracts from his recently released album,"Tooth & Nail" and a generous helping of classic creations from his illustrious back catalogue. Bragg's approach to music-making may be a little more mellow and folksy these days but the passage of time hasn't dimmed the impact of emotionally charged ditties such as "Between The Wars" or "Never Buy The Sun," and this splendid CD/DVD package closes with Billy's solo rendition of the entire "Life's A Riot With Spy Vs.Spy" album.
