One thing you learn about the world of animal rescue is that you have to be able to dust yourself off and move on, regardless of what happens. There are more dogs to save! Thanks to everyone for your kind messages about Smart; no dog should leave this life without tears being shed.
At the SPA today we had three more new dogs to look after, none of which are identified. Let’s hope that at least a couple of them are reclaimed. Never nice to think of scared and confused dogs spending what might be the first of many nights in cold kennels, especially with the rain lashing down as it is at the moment. Still, at least they are under shelter; many many others will not be.
Onto brighter things. As mentioned in yesterday’s blog, amongst all the sadness we had an adoption, that of little Teck. When he arrived last month it was obvious that he wouldn’t have long to wait. A wire haired dachshund of just a year old was sure to be adopted quickly. Even had he not been one of the most adorable cuddly and affectionate dogs at the SPA. Sure enough a family came along to meet him yesterday, and after a quick trip to the vets today, off he went to his new home.
We must also say thanks to Cecile, who took over translation duties last week while Helene was otherwise occupied. Great job! And to Helene, welcome back and sorry the first couple of blogs since your return were so sad.
