Millions of pets face an Unhappy Blue Year, says PDSA

Forget Blue Monday  millions of pets face a Blue Year unless their owners take steps to end their stress, obesity and loneliness, according to leading pet wellbeing charity PDSA.

The warning comes on Monday 15 January  hallmarked as Blue Monday  where short,  dark days, empty pockets and dwindling New Years resolutions all add up to create the most melancholic day of the year. But PDSA is urging pet owners to spare a thought for the pets who face another year of loneliness and boredom going far beyond the joyless January blues.

NURSERY children were given a history lesson using new and old toys.

Victoria Masson, acting head of history at Oaklands Catholic School, in Waterlooville, visited Morelands Nursery, in Crookhorn Lane, and took along lots artefacts from the Hampshire History Centre.

Mrs Masson said: ‘It was the first time I’d ever worked with such young children so I had to do things differently.

‘To teach them about old and new I took along a very old pair of roller skates and a shiny, plastic new pair. And we compared a Victorian doll to Barbie – which they all recognised from Toy Story 3.

‘It was great fun and they could tell the difference between the artefacts.’
