My gratitude to our judges this year who were Welsh rugby star Ross Moriarty, actor Liam Fox and Jojo Entwistle who had the very difficult challenge of judging our fun dog show and found it immensely difficult to pick amongst all the beautiful dogs in their classes. Liam and Jojo also acted as our commentators and DJs and did a fantastic job at announcing classes, making show announcements, providing general entertainment and acting as DJs playing great music which was so well received by al. They chose great songs for musical sits was a huge success enjoyed by all and the decision between the final two dogs was a very close run thing.
Thanks also to the team of car park attendants from Admiral Group who did a marvellous job and got everyone parked quickly which was invaluable. My thanks also goes to my staff who came and ran stalls on their days off and to everyone who entered the dogs in the classes and took part in the scurry and temptation alley which gave the dogs a chance to let of steam and Caerphilly and District Agility Team who once again put on wonderful agility demonstrations which were very entertaining to watch and also gave people the chance for their dogs to have a go at agility.
Finally thank you to all our visitors who came to have a wonderful fun day out and support the rescue, many of whom brought their dogs - it was truly wonderful to see them groomed, glowing with health and happy with their proud owners - at the end of the day, it's what its all about!

26-06-19 Thank you from Sylvia
Yesterday having had a very long journey collecting dogs from all over Ireland, 29 of which were passported from the South, I decided to take the early boat home. This however, meant a longer drive on the other end for us from port to the rescue but still brought me home earlier meaning the dogs were on the van for less time.
My co-driver and writer Kelly was, as always magnificent, and despite when loading dogs getting covered in shot anal glands and much more, she remained happy, helpful and smiling throughout, despite the fact that the pair of us stank!
On arrival home at 2am this morning, a HUGE amount of staff turned up voluntarily to help unload these new arrivals and settle them in to their new kennels. I have never run a rescue with more dedicated dog lovers than these guys. They all help me stay strong and you all help me go on saving lives.
THANK YOU you're all amazing.!!!!!

The photograph is of my dear brother-in-law Mick Allsopp with Jock one of his much loved dogs who started his love for West Highland Terriers. His last westie was found a wonderful forever home by Many Tears on his passing in August 2018. This compassionate, quiet man has left a very generous legacy to this wonderful rescue which was so close to his heart, knowing that they stood between love or a lifetime of misery for so many dogs. I will miss Mick very much, but like to think of him walking in Godâ€™s countryside with his dogs Jock and Mac.
You were one in a million Mick, and Iâ€™m very proud to have been part of your life.
