Thanks to Facebook, the owner of the ten year old Yorkie was alerted to her arrival, so the afternoon got off to a good start, with this little dog leaving after just one night at the SPA. The owner has promised to get the details updated on the central database, as that way if Vanille ever goes wandering again, we will be able to get her home immediately!
I mentioned stalwart supporter Elinor yesterday, and by coincidence she features in tonight’s blog, too. Not with news of Renée (who was clean overnight and is fabulous, of course), but for another reason. Elinor nominated us in a Bank Holiday giveaway taking place in the UK, and we were chosen from dozens of overseas rescue organisations to receive a selection of leads designed to prevent dogs from pulling. These are now on their way to us thanks to Dave at Gentle Lead (http://www.gentleleads.com/ or www.facebook.com/pages/Gentlelead/326302347487811). A full report will be made in due course, but we are excited already. Anything that can make walking a dog more pleasurable has got to be good, providing the dog is happy with the arrangement, of course.
At the refuge we had the arrival of three dogs; two very young female puppies and a young male griffon. The two pups were very lucky, volunteer Marie-Pierre just happened to be at the SPA, and she went home with more than she bargained for! She will send us names to go with faces in due course, but in the meantime, here they are, 2 months old and cute as buttons!
The little griffon is lovely too, and I have a feeling he will appeal to more than a few of you. We have named him Tico.
So although it was not a great day, we have had worse!
