MORE than six months after he came into the care of the Blue Cross Animal Centre in Kimpton, Ben, a Labrador cross, is still without a new home.

Staff at the centre are very anxious that their longest-staying dog should be in a new home for Christmas and have asked the Herts Advertiser to publicise his plight.

Ben is approximately eight years old and is neutered. He is intelligent and would like a home with someone familiar with the qualities of Labradors which, as a breed, are adaptable and devoted. He loves playing with a ball and is good to walk on a lead. But he does like to chase cats and other small animals so he needs a home where he is an only pet.

Ben knows how to sit, give paw and lay down and additionally, he enjoys learning new things.

He can be seen at the Blue Cross in Kimpton Bottom from 10am to 4pm Mondays to Saturdays and from 10am to 3pm on Wednesdays. Further information can be obtained by calling 01438 832232.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
