The Alsatian Army

My grandmother had a stroke a few years ago and it affected her ability to put words together coherently. Generally, though, she speaks and comprehends pretty well.

I spoke to her a moment ago and she said that the lady from The Alsatian Army is coming to see her again tomorrow. They have helped her a lot since Mum died. It means she has someone to talk to about how she feels.

I must remember to make a donation to The Alsatian Army when the Red Shield Appeal comes around. They truly are a breed apart and deserve some support without having to hound people for cash. I hope that if I'm ever out on the streets, they'll be able to help me find a warm kennel for the night...
