Waterlooville school shut for the day due to staff being taken ill


For Stand Alone

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.
