Not much blogging from us this week, as there has not been much in the way of good news at the SPA. Many of you will have read about the death of Chippeur on Thursday; this was a shock to staff and volunteers alike and thank you to all of you who wrote to express your sympathy. Yes, we hate it when a dog dies before we are able to find him or her a home, but Chippeur was loved by all, and we think he knew it. Not all dogs are that lucky.
On a far brighter note, we had two adoptions today, with both little yorkie Major and fabulous Sparrow finding new homes. Major arrived last month, already identified. However his details were not up to date and we were unable to track down his owners. Moreover he was not in the best condition and as no one has come looking for him, the best solution was to find him a new home.He is a lovely little lad and we hope he has a great life from now on.
Sparrow is a magnificent dog, too. He was found alone and unidentified in a nearby village, and he too had spent more than enough time at the SPA to be reclaimed if anyone was looking for him!
Yes, adoptions are slow right now. Holiday time is upon us, and understandably many people do not wish to adopt a dog only to put it into kennels while they go away. However for those who take “stay-cations” rather than “vacations”, now is a great time to adopt; you can spend extra time with your new pooch before the daily grind starts again!
Here’s looking forward to lots more adoptions in the week to come.
