We didn’t have any adoptions today, but it was a day of twos.
We had two arrivals, two reservations, and someone is celebrating two years since finding their new home.
Firstly the arrivals. Bones is a fabulous bleu de gascogne who was found in Esperaza. Or rather he will be fabulous once he has put on some weight. This lad is all skin and bone (hence his name), and although he is not at all timid, he will need lots of love and care before he is back to full strength. Well, although a home is best, the SPA is definitely better than where he was before!
Second to arrive was a new puppy. She hasn’t got a name yet, or maybe she has by now, as she has gone home with volunteer Isa, foster mum extraordinaire. The vet estimates her age as being 8 weeks (the puppy, that is, not Isa), and she is some kind of spaniel mix. Absolutely adorable!
The two reservations are both of female dogs who have arrived recently; la Beaglette and Mila. So they will both be off very soon.
As for the two year celebration; that honour goes to fauve de Bretagne Athos, ex Scapin. DRC is still in touch with his adopters, as we are with many other families of ex SPA dogs. It was two years ago today that Scapin was first spotted on the SPA Carcassonne Facebook page by a couple in southern Germany. They fell instantly in love and immediately made plans to visit Carcassonne. The rest, as they say, is history! Athos and his canine pals have their own Facebook page and the photos have shown his gradual evolution from a skinny and terrified dog to a magnificent well socialised one. Many thanks to his new family.
Thanks also to all the walkers who came along today. The weather is still great and we are determined to make the most of it. Let’s hope it holds through the weekend, when of course we are open on both afternoons, as well as being present at Jardiland!
