In response to a nationally televised programme showing horrific conditions for horses whose meat ended up on Swiss dinner plates, several of the country’s supermarkets have pulled most labelled horsemeat products off their shelves.

The episode of the investigative programme “Kassensturz” on Swiss television showed footage of horses being beaten, neglected and transported for hours without food or water before being slaughtered.

Yesterday morning  was long and stressful.

After it was over, this is what we all did.

We are moving.



We got another call to show the house, with less than 24 hours notice. Jen asked about breaking the lease and they agreed.

Please keep that positive energy flowing this way as we make yet another transition.

One thing that is wonderful in our lives right now is the outpouring of support from our friends. Thank you so much to those of you who faithfully vote for me each day. You have no idea how much your kindness means to us, especially now at this time of uncertainty.  We sure do love you!

Here’s the link to the World Spay Day Pet Pageant.
