5.0 out of 5 stars A long lasting tick treatment that really works., 23 May 2014
I live in Cyprus where sheep and goats roam everywhere, spreading ticks wherever they go. Unless treated dogs and cats soon become infested.
I had been using a well known liquid sachet treatment on my long coated German Shepherd, but because of his size it proved to be next to useless.

5.0 out of 5 stars True heroism., 7 Oct 2013
Susan Ottaway, has previously written biographies on Guy Gibson VC and Violette Szabo GC. In those books, whilst in no way diminishing the bravery of the subjects, she stripped away many of the inaccuracies and misconceptions that proliferated in each case mainly as a result of filmed accounts of their stories; and films, even British ones, tend to be made more for entertainment than as factual accounts.
In comparison to her previous subjects, the Nearne sisters, or more accurately, their stories were, until now virtually unknown outside SOE circles.
Both were true heroines and their story well deserves telling. Having read this book, one is left wondering why, in the… Read more
