Of course not every day can be like yesterday, with its multiple adoptions. For the most part we are happy when a day passes with no new arrivals, like today.
Moreover there were plenty of volunteers out dog walking, including yet more people who are visiting the area for the holidays but who have come along to lend a hand at the SPA. Many thanks to you all. Mind you, with weather such as we are having at the moment, who wouldn’t want to spend an afternoon out walking a dog or two?
There were several families visiting the SPA with a view to adopting a dog. It struck us yet again how few females we have compared to males. We thought it might be worth showing you a picture of recent arrival Hvala. She arrived on Thursday just before closing when it was too dark for us to take any photos. As you can see, she is a lovely girl, with classic black and tan colours. We are sure she will be very popular, especially as she makes up an elite group of less than 20 female dogs out of the 100 dogs we have at the SPA!
People often state that females are gentler and easier to manage than males….Is this true? The oft-quoted maxim that male dogs wander in search of females on heat is of course not valid for castrated males (and all our dogs leave having been neutured). And some of our males are incredibly gentle. Just give them a chance to prove this to you; you may just be surprised!
