Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

What a difference a dog makes…

You would think taking a stray dog on board would be a fun and rewarding experience wouldn’t you?

Think again…..

One lady on a Cyprus forum I frequent suddenly received a visit from her local Cyprus policeman informing her a complaint had been made about her recent rescue dog causing a nuisance by barking when she (the owner) was out of the house.

No complaint (as far as we can ascertain) has been made by the neighbours directly to the dog owner.

The lady then asked for assistance on the Cyprus Living forum or advice on what she could do about it and if anyone knew what the local noise regulations are with regards to hours of operation/noise levels etc, etc.

She did get some offers of help and advice but she also received a barrage of most unhelpful comments which are probably enough to put anyone else off the idea of rescuing another waif and stray.

You can check out the forum post here and make up your own mind.

And on the other hand – there’s this: Missing Dog

There are many animal rescue centres and charities in Cyprus. If you are an animal lover and have the time to spare to help out or are considering providing a forever home to a dog or cat – be sure to read my page Animal Charities – Cyprus.
