    Thank you to whoever (would love to know?) donated this beautiful dog bed. I only had it in my bedroom five mins and Badger and Mindy had to try it out. I put it there for the next weak little dog that needed to be near me by night. Not these two spoilt brats, but I guess I now know its really comfy.

    Meet Toots. She's 2 yrs old. Spayed, vaccinated and wormed. Housetrained ect and very calm and laid back. She's looking for a nice home where she will be loved and sleep by the fire. Can you offer her that home?

    Just stole this off little Scarletts page…. Barking Berry's Bakery

    Our life is surreal! Three generations of the family (Scarlett, mum and grandma) have just spent the evening baking Barking Berry biscuits for this weekend's event whilst dancing around the kitchen to Insomnia by Faithless!

    Hope the fun added to the flavour and that Scarlett raises lots of money for Animal Heaven Animal Rescue and GRWE – Greyhound Rescue West of England at Pets in the Park in Northwich on Sunday 🙂
    What a sweet little girl. Cant wait to meet you in a few months when you visit AHAR, Scarlett. Thank you from all of us xx

    Transporter Update – the van we purchased in the UK has now been registered here in Ireland and will be issued with Irish reg plates in the next couple of days. This will then allow us to tax it before it undergoes its DOE mechanical check.

    Once all this is done we will then get quotations for the conversion of the van for use as a dog transporter in compliance with Department of Agriculture Standards (Ireland) and DEFRA standards (UK) and the van will then be submitted for testing to the Department. We will keep you updated on progress.

    Honor Heffernan has been performing as both a singer and actress for many years and has been both critically and publicly acclaimed as a singer whose versatility and superior vocal ability means she is comfortable singing anything from Jazz and Blues to Rock and Folk.

    Honor is a great supporter of AHAR and has given us 20 Autographed CDS of her album “The Other Side”. We are making these available for €15 each under our AHAR Offers. The price includes p & p within Ireland. We only have 20 of these available….. so to purchase please add a comment that you would like one, send a pm or email tom@ahar.ie and I will send you the link to purchase. I will let you know when they are all gone.

    The Other Side – as reviewed by Hot Press.

    “Honor Heffernan’s position as one of Ireland’s leading jazz interpreters has tended to overshadow her abilities as a rock singer, but her work on this album serves as a lesson to those who think that singing a song is merely down to getting the notes and the words right. Heffernan knows how to cherry-pick songs from quality songwriters while avoiding the obvious, and then stake her own claim to them. A case in point is Leonard Cohen’s ‘Here It Is’, from 2001. It’s hardly his greatest hit, but Heffernan’s treatment takes on the feel of a blues prayer. Whereas other singers take a song like J.J.Cale’s ‘After Midnight’ and wrestle it into submission, Heffernan’s instinct is to give it enough space to breathe; similarly, she doesn’t try to outdo Janis on Joplin’s ‘Move Over’, but instead adds new subtleties that weren’t there in the original. Her unforced melodiousness brings out the depth of songs like John Martyn’s ‘Some People’ and Joni Mitchell’s ‘All I Want’, while Bonnie Raitt’s hit ‘Love Sneakin’ Up On You’ works up some real sweat.

    Supported by a fine band, lead by the stirring fretwork of Dick Farrelly, and featuring Neil Conti from Prefab Sprout on drums, The Other Side is an album that's as rewarding to listen to as it sounds like it was to make. It isn’t often you can say that.”
