Osska has a new home.

Osska was found as a puppy at a Vide Grenier. I had watched a skinny young dog from 6.30 am when we arrived to set up our stall at the last Vide Grenier of the season. It wasn’t unusual to see a dog wandering freely as people set up stalls. But I kept an eye out for this little chap as he kept appearing around all of the stalls. He never seemed to belong anywhere. Then, when everybody started to sit for lunch he was in big trouble ………. to read more about Osska please go to Happy homes.


During November we are holding an exhbition of pastel and charcoal Pet Portraits by Jennifer M. James at the Au Pain Doré, Fontaine Daniel. We are grateful to our clients for loaning their pictures. For sale are a few items and Grande Daze will benefit from the proceeds:

Original small paintings €10 to €15,

Trinkets pots decorated with pet portraits €10 to €15

and postcards at .50 cents each.

You might like to browse through the portfolio of prints and stories about the animals that have been painted whilst you wait to purchase your bread and cakes!

Unfortunately, the Covid-19 regulations have necessitated the closure of the tearoom but it is still possible to view the exhibition. Au Pain Doré is open to sell their delicious bread and cakes and Madame Walter will be happy to serve you.


« Sadly, on Friday, 30th October, Grande Daze lost one of our best friends, Caramel, the beautiful Golden Retriever companion of Delphine and her family.   We will always remember what a beautiful agility team the pair made and how much fun they had together on the course.  Caramel and Parsnip were wonderful friends.

We give our support to the family at this difficult time.  Caramel will be missed by everyone.

We know that these past few months have been very difficult for everyone and your generosity has astounded us.  Thank you to each and everyone of you for the donations, the support in purchasing from the Gee Dee’s Shop, the €2 Shop, Click and Collect and the Facebook pages of some of our Benevoles.   Thanks to your kind hearts we  have been able to continue to feed the animals, take care of routine vets visits for yearly vaccinations and ensure that all of the animals remain healthy and happy.

All of us are facing difficulties because of the necessary Covid-19 restrictions and we hope that you all keep well and safe for when better times are upon us.  Take care everyone.  See you soon.


As always at Grande Daze we welcome visitors. However, like everywhere else we are having to take precautions to keep everyone safe.

Please note that when visiting us you must

Wear a Face Mask – Observe Social Distancing – Use Hand Sanitiser (provided on site)


Such lovely images to see when you consider that these 2 dogs are rescue dogs.  Each of these guys, the Dogue de Bordeaux on the left and the Shi Tzu cross on the right had been badly treated before they were adopted.  Both are now middle aged and happy.  You can read about them soon and read the stories of other rescued dogs in our Happy Homes section.

The Covid-19 pandemic means that we are unable to do our usual fundraising.  Would you please consider supporting us with a donation via our Facebook page on the PayPal button or buying something online from our benevoles Facebook pages or Click and Collect section. Thank you for reading this appeal.

Thank you to March Bushnell

Many of you will know March Bushnell from the Agility Team and dog training classes. You may also have seen her shooting around with her camera at many of our fundraising events.  March was also the creator and manager of the Grande Daze website.  A thriving business  is now taking up much of March’s time and she has resigned as the website administrator.

We would like to thank March for her dedication and the skills she has given to us over the past few years.  We wish her every success in her new venture.  With her love of dog training and agility work I’m sure we will see her around in the future.
