There we all were wondering why little Berry / Fifine was still at the refuge, little knowing that in fact a family had been to see her on Sunday and just needed Dad’s approval before adopting her. He came along today and after a quick test in the cat house (which Berry passed with flying colours), off she went. Thanks Dad!
She was not the only dog to leave today. The lovely border collie who was found at the gates on Sunday afternoon was reclaimed. Her name was Guana, which may seem a bit odd to those of you who know anything about bats, but maybe it sounds better in French. In any case, she was delighted to see her mum and we are all very happy for her. Borders tend not to do well in refuges, as many of you know.
The SPA was also able to serve as meeting point for a non-refuge dog, namely Maiko, a lovely black male who was signaled as missing by his distraught owners on the site chien-perdu.org. Of course as usual his photo was spread far and wide via Facebook etc. A couple found the dog, contacted the owners, and all of them met up at the SPA. The owner is now going to get his dog castrated as he knows for sure that he ran off in pursuit of a female. No one has told Maiko the news yet, clearly, as he is looking very happy on the photo!
I mentioned yesterday that Baker had been reclaimed. Well I now know who he is. He was brought in on Sunday, and with Sunday’s other two arrivals also being reclaimed today, that makes the whole weekend far more positive. And certainly makes this Tuesday better than the one we had last week!
Finally a lovely picture of Renee, who left for Scotland last week. Her new family had a couple of social commitments which they felt may have prevented them from starting off as being the devoted dog owners they clearly are. And as Elinor and her family were not exactly in a hurry to say goodbye, they all agreed to leave Renee where she was for another week. Apparently it was all very emotional (no surprises there), but here is Renee with her new family and their dogs, as well as with her foster dad and two canine pals. Thanks again Elinor and Dave. Job well done!
Guana – RECLAIMED
Maiko – still with his family jewels, but not for long!
And Renee with friends old and new. Apparently she is now on “her” new sofa
