We have both good and bad news today.
Brenda was brought back after just three days in her new home, as apparently she is aggressive with the family’s other dog. We know Brenda is fine with everyone, and in fact the family did come along and make sure the two dogs got on, so all should have been well. And probably would have in a day or so. There are often niggles when two dogs meet in a new home. These usually stop quickly and the dogs end up being best friends. And of course we are always here to give advice. But advice can only be given if people are willing to take it, and so poor Brenda is back. Sharing her box of course.
It is particularly annoying as the family reserved Brenda weeks in advance. So that is it, the SPA is no longer taking reservations more than 2 weeks in advance unless the dog is waiting to travel abroad.
Before the ink was dry on that contract of abandon, back came puppy Marcus (who was called Tonito when he was adopted in November). He is now four months old and was abandoned for …well, being a puppy, I guess. So that wasn’t the best home either.
Moving onto today’s good news; two adoptions.
First to leave was Laika. You probably won’t have seen her, but this little French bulldog has been here for a few weeks. This was not her first visit, but we were waiting for the go ahead to rehome her due to the long term illness of her owner. Of course dogs like this are much in demand, so it is lucky that Laika was spotted by a family who will be there for her through thick and thin. She has been in the wars recently, but is in great hands and we will get regular news of her in her new life.
Then another great adoption, that of Junior, who is also here due to the long term illness of his owner. He arrived in early November with his pal Jolie, who is still looking for a home. But lucky Junior was chosen by a family with young children today, and was last seen in the arms of his new admirers.
So that was Thursday then! What a strange week it has been so far!
