Yesterday I mentioned that Dominique and I had been to visit a couple of old friends and that I would tell you more tomorrow. Well, here we go.
When I said “old friends”, only one of them is old. The other is just a puppy and they have been homed together. The fact that Dominique went to visit may be the final clue to enable you to guess about whom I am talking…..Got it yet?
Tom and Jazz!
Tom has been with the family for 3 weeks, and Jazz for two, and they, together with the family’s other male, golden lab, Miel, are now well settled in and enjoying their new life. Isa, who looked after Jazz in foster, was worried that “her” little pup would miss her dog, Luna, who had acted as a surrogate mum for Jazz. Well, despite the fact that Tom is a male, Jazz seems to regard him as his new mum, and the two of them are very close, with Tom teaching Jazz good doggy manners, like how hard to bite and when enough is enough.
It was a lovely visit, and much to my surprise, Dominique didn’t cry!
We have started running out of certain things at the refuge, and so rather than buy them new, we are wondering if anyone can help us out. Here is the Facebook album of what we need
- But for those of you who don’t have Facebook, we are after the following items
Hand sanitising gel (I know that some health facilities have to throw opened bottles away after 30 days, regardless of how much is left. We would be grateful for any left-overs)
- A wipe off notice board and marker pens
- Lever arch files, either blue or red (doesn’t matter if they are a bit battered)
- Worming tablets (Milbemax or similar)
- Almo Nature dog food (available from Zooplus and deliverable to the refuge)
The SPA no longer has a Paypal account, by the way, so please do not send money that way. Far better to send us the items via post if possible or if you are in the area and can pop in, even better!
Thank you as ever for your support and solidarity.
Look how big he is getting
Dominique has a cuddle. No tears!
This is the dog food we would like, please
And hand gel is needed too!
