Default More about Moira

I've happened on some more information about Moira Foot. Apparently she now runs a "small animal sanctuary" (I assume the sanctuary is small, not the animals) on her farm, in or near the amusingly-named village of Itchingfield, Sussex.

There are even some small photos of her, with some of the animals she lovingly tends.

Very interesting. I am amazed about the dog caring for a blind sheep. Even more so that the other dogs took over when the first one passed.

Here's another article, from early this year, quoting Moira talking about kindness to animals:

https://www.pressreader.com/uk/scott...82982514673581

Although the years (and the work on her farm, no doubt) have had some effect, she's still lovely and still recognizably "our" Moira.

Thanks for that Erik. It is always good to see Moira. She certainly has a point. The Puppy Sellers here are all out of the Malls . Many of their former stores are occupied by Animal Rescue Organizations including City and County Animal Welfare.

When I first saw her picture I didn't realize there was a dog right in front of her and thought to myself "what an ugly, shaggy skirt." Then I realized my error. The dog isn't ugly by any means, but as a skirt it doesn't work.

Maybe she bought the skirt during her time at Grace Brothers, using her staff discount.

I think it might make an excellent lap robe.
