Open Day Joy for Patinette

We were a bit worried about the weather today, as we had heavy rains overnight. However apart from a brief shower at the start of the afternoon, the rain held off until the refuge was shut this evening. And we had lots of visitors to the SPA, some specifically to meet the students and find out more about dogs’ food and health (many thanks to them all!), and many more to walk dogs.

One lucky girl was adopted. Today we said goodbye to puppy Patinette, and we are very happy for her. As mentioned recently, we have had several new puppy arrivals of late, and we were worried that Patinette would just get left behind. Today she is four months old and she is celebrating in style, with her new family!

However as quite often happens on open days, we ended the day with more dogs than we started with. Two dogs were abandoned by their owners who had gone through the proper process of contacting the SPA in advance. But three were brought in having been found, and two of them are very old. We are having more and more elderly dogs arriving and although the cold of the winter is at an end, it is not nice to see these lovely old dogs in concrete kennels.

Let’s hope they find new homes or perhaps even their real owners soon. And let’s hope for good news and excellent weather tomorrow.
