Today saw the adoption of Zoom, a “not quite puppy” who has been with us since the end of May. The way he was chosen was quite unusual, but I quite like it. Whether for logistical reasons or not, the couple wishing to adopt came to the refuge separately. Quite often a whole family comes together, which is fine. It is maybe best if everyone can be involved in what is obviously a very important choice. However there are other ways to do this than to all show up together. One way is to pre-select according to pictures on Facebook or other sites. But in this case, monsieur came first and picked out the dogs he liked, then a couple of days later along came madame, and they compared notes to see if there was a match!
Little Zoom was on both their lists, and so today off he went, after a quick trip to the vet. And we are not just talking identification here!
Thanks to Philippe for taking iDick back to his refuge of origin. Not as nice as an adoption, but probably better than spending his days watching tennis matches in Conques and not knowing where his next meal was coming from.
I almost forgot, but tomorrow is a public holiday in France. Some dates are second nature to just about everyone, regardless of religion (New Year being one example); but as Assumption day is not celebrated in the UK, it is easy for us to forget. The SPA will be closed, although I wouldn’t be too surprised if a couple of volunteers pop in to play with some dogs and cats. It is hard to keep away.
Whatever you choose to do with your day, hope you have a lovely time.
