    What to Buy Before Bringing Home a Puppy or Rescue Dog

    Welcoming a new puppy or rescue dog into your home is an exciting - and often quite hectic - time for all the family. There’s the inevitable naming debate to contend with as well as critical decisions to make; including whether they will be allowed on the couch, whether to crate train, and tha daily schedule for feeding and walks.

    The Places That Produce The Most England International Footballers

    Football for many of us is more than just a sport, it’s a way of living. Whether you support your local team or travel miles for every match, you are guaranteed to feel at home within your club's stadium. In fact, many supporters form strong rivalries with opposing teams whilst firmly standing by their chosen team. Yet there is one team every football fan will support each time they play, sticking with them through the ups and downs (and there's been a lot!).
