Ian recalls their involvement with rescuing strays began in earnest when they first got a call to help with a young dog late at night. "She had gastritis, which is a killer for dogs," he explains. "She was so dehydrated that her blood was black - she was literally 12 hours away from death.

Aya IIf you've not played an Assassin's Creed game before the sudden change of perspective may be a little confusing, but for now just roll with it. You can explore the cave if you fancy, but there's not a lot you can do anywhere so we'd suggest leaving sightseeing for later, and instead just grabbing the pills from the crate and getting back in the Animus device. … [Read more...] about Assassin’s Creed Origins – Aya I and May Amun Walk Beside You
