As many of you know, poor Nicki has been feeling rather under the weather recently and is still not really feeling one hundred per cent yet.

I thought it would give her a real boost if we could now revive interest in this important auction, for which she has already worked so very hard. Although there was a good rush of bids when the auction first opened in January, there are still very many lovely items for which no one has yet placed a bid.

We are therefore proposing to extend the closing deadline for the auction until 28th March 2011 at 10 pm BST

So please do have another look at all the wonderful items on offer at

Remember to set your Thread Display Option (at the bottom of the page) to at least 2 months, otherwise you will not see items which were first posted right at the beginning of the year

And if you are in any doubt about just how important the funds raised via Rupert's Fund are, then please have a look at these threads for enlightenment!

Thank you so much to all you lovely people who have responded to my post above and made extra bids. And a warm welcome to those people who have registered with CT for the first time in order to be able to make a bid.

Keep it up, everyone - only another 20 days to go :jmp::jmp:

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have already spotted that I have today added 10 further items to the auction bids.

Thanks to a lovely lady called Amanda on The Little Dog Rescue Forum, who is a most gifted craftswoman in very many modes, we can now offer some beautiful items of jewellery for both adults and children which she has made specially for us. Amanda is a great lover of Cavaliers, having had one called Milo in the past, now sadly at The Bridge, and she wanted to offer us some items from her wonderful collection to help raise even more money for Rupert's Fund.

I notice that we have now had several new members join us from other forums where I cross-posted information about this auction, so a big thank you to them and to all of you who have already made bids.

So, take a look at the new jewellery, and indeed all the other items, and see if you can be tempted to make further bids as we countdown to the end of the auction on 28th March at 10 pm BST.

You won't regret it! http://i673.photobucket.com/albums/vv97/Cavviewagtails/Animations/Dog%20animations/Frisbeecatcher.gif

Please note that the auction will finish at 10 pm (22h.00) BST (AND NOT GMT AS ORIGINALLY ADVERTISED)

This is because we put our UK clocks forward by 1 hour on 27th March
