Funny how sometimes, after waiting for months, a dog is adopted out of the blue. In fact this very morning one of our volunteers, Julie, who is very active on internet forums, asked me whom she should feature as “dog of the month” and I said “Molly”. Well, Julie, I hope you haven’t spent all day writing about Molly, cos now she has left!
Word of mouth is a wonderful thing, and Molly’s adopters are friends of another volunteer, Martine, who was able to suggest which dogs may be suitable for their lifestyle. And as luck would have it, when they arrived at the refuge, Molly was being given a bath by Stephane and Sabrina, so was a)clean and b) calm and relaxed!
So after nearly 11 months behind bars, this lovely girl has finally found a home. I guess it was just her day!
The second lucky girl to leave us was little Bikini, a seven year old Coton de Tulear. She was sterilised today and left with her new family this evening. So two females have left the refuge and a third was reserved.
What with that and the walking and washing that took place, today was not a bad day. Yesterday was a good one too, so let’s hope the week continues to be positive!
And Bikini leaves us too!
