Today two puppies found new homes. The first to leave was Nelly. She arrived ten days ago, and as she was adorable and was wearing a very expensive collar, we thought she would be reclaimed. Wrong yet again! The family who reserved her last week were delighted, of course; they too were sure they would have to make another choice!
Next we said goodbye to Antiope. Yes, strange name, and we are sure it will be changed, but she is named for one of the characters in Wonder Woman. All three pups from this litter are very poorly socialised and will need lots of love and patience, but her new family is more than prepared for this. Many thanks to them and let’s hope that the other 2 pups don’t have long to wait. It will be far easier for them to be socialised in homes, but we are caught in a bit of a vicious circle, as they need to be socialised in order for most people to want to adopt them!
Finally, please don’t forget tomorrow’s yard sale at Chateau Miaou. There is a wet-weather plan in place (we have access to a huge barn), although at the moment it looks like we might be lucky. It should be a great way to spend a couple of hours. Browse through the selection of quality clothes at super bargain prices, take part in the tombola, buy books or DVDs and of course eat (or take away) some British bangers; whilst at the same time helping to raise funds for Dog Rescue Carcassonne. There will be hot and cold drinks available, including for those of you who are not behind the wheel, some beer.
Here is a map showing the location of Chateau Miaou, but just be aware (as I wasn’t when I popped up there today) that the D119 is closed at La Force, so best come another way. Or you can drive between the fields, like I did, which worked out fine!
Hope to see you tomorrow, either there or at the SPA, which is open as it is the first Sunday of the month.
Hope to see you tomorrow!
