No fewer than three recent arrivals found their homes today; two were dogs who are already well known to us as “runners”. Jaguar (aka Geo) belongs to a Russian lady, and when Melissa phoned her on Friday to tell her that her dog was with us, the owner was in Moscow! However she asked her brother- in-law to come and get the dog, so as of today he is back where he belongs.
Second was Hercule, who is a SPA regular. He was found wandering on the Pont Vieux by Lucie, one of our supporters. She brought him to the SPA this afternoon and then delivered him back home. It took a bit of time, as the owners were out looking for him, so Hercule spent some of the afternoon playing with Lucie’s ex – SPA dog, Harley.
Oh, the joys of identified dogs!
The third dog to leave was Joanna, who arrived on Saturday. Her real name was in fact Tika, but we didn’t know that, because she was not identified. (No comment). One of our most loyal supporters, “vide-grenierist” extraordinaire, Fred, lives in Quillan, and it was he who emailed us to tell us that one of his French neighbours had lost his dog. We asked for more information, and as soon as the photos arrived, we knew that Joanna had found her owner. Excellent news! She is now identified, of course!
So thanks Fred! I don’t think the owner had thought of contacting the SPA!
So a day of reunions. We did have a new arrival, and I will try and take pictures of him tomorrow and see if we can find his owners, or maybe a new home.
