MenoSundays; Life Lived Lovingly

As you are all aware, here at Capital 'Ell' Love Central, giving is considered a great part of Love. Giving without need or expectation of return. Spontaneous giving lends itself best to this... a cup of tea or soup for a homeless person, a hand across the road for an elder who may be struggling. These givings we can give, wave, and move along knowing another has been uplifted by so simple a gesture and our hearts are a little raised also.

Then there is the regular giving; donations to chosen charities. We may never actually witness direct benefit of our offerings, but we can see the overall benefits to society and occasionally to individuals. Our reward is in knowing we have, in fact, made a difference, no matter how small. No other reward is required.  At the end of February, this came through; many of you have followed Isaac's journey with me and now we have a new fellow to send loving vibes to!!! Yes, I shall continue the sponsorship and hope that Irvine proves to be as handsome and responsive as Isaac has been.

Dear Yamini,
Thanks to your generosity, Isaac is now nearing the end of his two years of training, and you’ve seen first-hand how he has grown from a tiny six-week-old bundle of fur, into a handsome, capable and affectionate dog.
We hope you have enjoyed sponsoring Isaac. The regular Pupdates and photographs have shown how far he has come, and we hope you’re as proud as we are. From everyone here at Guide Dogs, thank you for helping Isaac with all his training over the last two years.
Isaac is such a sweet and intelligent boy, and we are excited to see who he will finally be matched with. You will receive Isaac’s bonus Pupcard in June, when you’ll hopefully get to meet Isaac’s new owner and see the difference that Isaac is making to their life. 

Until then, I’d love to introduce you to one of our new pups, Irvine. Irvine is a confident and adventurous pup who likes to explore lots of new sights and smells. He loves nothing more than playing in the garden with his sister, Immie. 

If you would like to help Irvine begin his exciting journey, you don’t need to do anything. Your sponsorship will continue exactly as it did with Isaac. Rest assured that you will be right at the heart of Irvine’s wonderful journey.


  1. Oh this is all very good news, Well done for sponsoring Isaac, and Bertie and I have paws and fingers crossed that Irvine proves to be a successful student too.
