Well, we didn’t have any more adoptions today, in fact we had a couple of new arrivals, which wasn’t really what we wanted. However it was a fun day, with lots of people coming to walk dogs. And let’s face it, dogs don’t know it is Christmas.
One of today’s arrivals, a fabulous beagle called Rodes, is identified but we have not been able to contact his owners. The SPA doesn’t reopen until Tuesday at 14H00, but we hope that his owners will be reassured to know he is safe and well and waiting for them to come and collect him. And if they don’t, I will be one of many people waiting, lead in hand, to take him out. What a handsome lad!
Another of today’s arrivals, a fabulous pyrenean shepherd, arrived unidentified having been found in the countryside about 12 km from the SPA. And the good news is that this evening she is safe and well and back at home. Her owners showed up just before the SPA shut, and Estelle sped off to the vet with Dolly who is now identified and back at home. Thanks Estelle and to Patricia and Seb who also waited till Dolly had left.
Don’y worry, the dogs who are at the SPA will be fed and looked after by our wonderful staff, but there will be no walking until Tuesday.
See you then, hopefully with news of the first post- Christmas adoptions!
