Today at the refuge was hot, far too hot! Summer time is very hard for the dogs and even with tarpaulins on the cage roofs to create some shade, its so so hot!
A couple of weeks ago we did appeal for paddling pools for the dogs and thanks very much to those who donated some. If you do happen to have one that your dog wont use then do pop in with it. My Labradors who love water wont use a paddling pool, I think that they think it’s a giant water bowl but lots of our dogs will!
Todays lucky girl was Helly. Helly arrived at the end of May as a stray, most likely an ex hunt dog. She is probably a Bruno de Jura cross, but that’s just a guess. She was very worried about being in such a chaotic noisy environment and appeared very timid at first.
Like all of the scardies she slowly gained confidence and her new owners know that they will have to give her lots of time and patience. At least that is one less dog struggling with the heat in a concrete kennel.
We did have an arrival of another oldie who we have more details of tomorrow as well as the reservation of one of the lovely ‘Wonder Woman’ litter.
Tomorrows weather is hot again but don’t let that put you off. You can still come along, meet the dogs or play with the kittens. Lets hope that despite the heat we have lots of adoptions and I think that we will also have a special doggy visitor!
