Deadly dog flu!

Deadly dog flu!

Front page of the Herald this week, and here it is on ickent...

A KILLER dog virus has struck in Folkestone, claiming three victims and it is feared it will spread.

The deadly parvovirus has killed three dogs from the same household and a vet has warned that more deaths are likely.

Grandmother Maria Lee, 56, of Radnor Park Crescent, was absolutely distraught after she lost three of her beloved dogs in the space of 24 hours.

Although there is no guaranteed cure for the virus but pet owners are being encouraged to get their dogs vaccinated.

Vet Anthony Barnes, of the Manor Road Clinic, described the horrific and painful way in which the disease kills.

This is part of my website The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when we first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
