Today was busy at the refuge. Very busy, even. But the end result, despite all the comings and goings, was just one extra dog on the books. And even he might leave as he is identified in the name of the breeder, who will give us the new owner’s name tomorrow. Fingers crossed that the dog’s owner comes to collect him.
The other four (yes FOUR) arrivals were all identified so all left straight away. However all of this takes time; booking dogs in, searching on the central database, and contacting the owners. My heart sank when I heard about the number of dogs in, and my immediate thought was “but we have just homed five dogs to the UK, will this never end”. And of course it will never end. But at least today was not just a question of filling up the spaces we have just made! That will happen in due course I am sure.
So what do we do when we have nothing to talk about? We show you photos of happy dogs, of course!
First up is Benson, who was homed just over a year ago to volunteers Rebecca and James (he of the recent dog- delivery fame). Look how handsome he is, and none the worse for his ordeal of having been left starving on a balcony!
Next up we have Harlequin, homed in the UK thanks to a border collie rescue organisation and who is now an agility champion.
Then we have recently adopted Luxor (now Luther), who is seen here together with Gwen. They, are both in the UK with our great friends Anita and Phil.
Closer to home we have Sherman, adopted and adored, despite his age. Older dogs can be the best companions; they have the maturity to appreciate the second chance that life has given them. Thanks so much to Elodie for sending us photos so regularly. It really keeps us going on the bad days.
Finally we have recently adopted Oscar, now Gryphon, who is turning out to be the perfect pet.
Happy news today, despite there having been no adoptions!
Please don’t forget this Sunday’s Spring Fayre to benefit the SPA. It is taking place at the Club Canin Carcassonne from 10am-4pm and will be an excellent day out. Here is the cake which you can win just by guessing its weight! Thanks to Anna, yet agai
