Okay, I have a confession to make. When I wrote yesterday’s blog I made the assumption that Tayson had arrived at the SPA. I knew he was on his way, which is why I had the photo, and I knew he was safe and well. Now I confess; at the time of going to press even tonight, Tayson is still not at the refuge. Muriel’s parents think he needs a bit of r+r at their place. I am saying nothing, except that they are truly wonderful people!
At the refuge today Di came along with a friend, who had been given strict instructions not to let her leave with a dog. However Anis, she of “we are going on holiday” fame, had other ideas, so Di left with a bundle of Maltese Bichon in her arms!
And that was not the only bit of good news. Felicie, whose owner has been hospitalised, has found some friends to help her cope, and so Felicie was reclaimed. That is wonderful news; it was a very emotional reunion; even for those of us who were just spectators.
The next adoption of the day was one of my favourites. Little Bernie, who looks like a big dog until you see him up against an object of which you know the size. Look at him with this water bottle, for instance. No, the bottle is just one litre; Bernie looks likea big tough Rottweiler sized dog, whereas in fact he is just a little fellah! He and his Croatian microchip are starting a new life with a young mistress and her cat.
One big dog who did leave today was Halbus. This dog arrived chipped but owners untraceable in mid July. We knew it would not take this beautiful boy long to find a home, and sure enough a family fell for his charms just four weeks later.
As promised we managed to get photos of yesterday’s new arrivals, which are now on Facebook. Two “not quite pups” and a beautiful Brittany spaniel, whom we have named Ella. Let’s hope there are some Brittany-lovers out there; we have plenty of them right now, both male and female.
