With three adoptions yesterday was already a great day. But at the time of the blog, we did not know that in fact a fourth dog left the SPA! The adoption took place after 18H00, so we have to thank the staff once again for their dedication.
Baila had been homed once before but there were issues with the family’s cat. Her new family have cats too; 6 of them. But as Baila is always well-behaved in the SPA cat house, and her new family are determined to make it work, we are cautiously optimistic. In any case, it has been almost a year since Baila was brought back, and before that she had been at the SPA for nine months. And Baila is not even two and a half years old. So cats or no cats, she deserves a chance. Please keep your fingers crossed that things finally work out for this lovely girl.
And today we had another adoption, this time of a puppy. Two almost identical black puppies arrived earlier this month having been found in a local village. As athletics fans know, usually Bolt is first, but this time it is Blake’s turn, although admittedly few people can tell these pups apart. Angelique tells me it is all in the placement of the ears. In any case, the other pup, nominally Bolt, is still waiting, but if I know the SPA staff well, he will not be alone. He and the other pups have been playing all day in the park, so although Bolt will be missing his brother, he doubtless has new playmates. Not as good as a home of his own, of course…..
Blake, whose photo is below, is also the poster child for the upcoming photograph competition taking place to celebrate the International Day of the Dog on 26th August.
Two more dogs are due to leave tomorrow, ending what has been the best week for some time.
