Hello Patrick, I have a steam cleaner and I absolutely love it. I have tiles all through downstairs and I find it so much easier than a mop and bucket. It also does wood and cleans carpets. You may be asking about one of those hand held things that cleans cookers and kitchen tiles. I have also had o...

How lovely was that and so eloquently written. It seems to be the same all over the Creuse. We too

We too said to hell with Nationwide. We opened an account with HSBC in England and also one in France. We have free transfers and almost no banking charges. It was a bit of a long job, due to the lack of expertise in the french side but it is all working nicely now, with internet access and transfer...

When I bought a passport for my dog it cost about 120 euros. That was for the passport, injection for rabies and blood tests. That was here in France. I have found the cost of returning to England, for the vermifuge and tick treatment varying from nothing to 45euros per dog. it all depends on what v...

I buy my Frontline from Vet-medic.co.uk. Its very reasonable. I start in March and generally finish in November, all depending on how warm it is. I buy a tic-tir from the local pharmacy for twisting out the little blighters!

I've found an osteopath that does dogs, he is in Neris-les-bains. His wife is a vet. His name is Alain Giraud and his number is 04 70 09 03 03. If nothing else, it might be worth ringing up for a chat. Incidentally, when I had my old dogs I used to buy all my pills and potions from Vet-medic.co.uk. ...

I bought a beautiful godin cuisiniere from a shop next door to Intermarche in Auzances. They provide a fitting service too. I'm absolutely delighted with it, had it two years now.

It may not be the dogs leg at all. It could stem from his back. If you could find a chiropractor that does dogs it might be a good start.
I used one in England and we had great success.
If you can find one could you post the address please.

So sorry Annik, its a hard time for all of us dog lovers. I lost my two old dogs within 15 weeks of each other - I was gutted. But I now have a border collie that I rescued from a farm. He is totally crackers but absolutely gorgeous. Having to work with him and show him the world has given me someth...
