All the dogs at the shelter are adorable , from Balder, one of the longest stay dogs, to the 3 week old puppies. There is every colour and size imaginable - everywhere you look is dogs. Over the week I have cuddled most of them (some are too scared to be touched) . I even made friends with Mr Darcy, the blind and nearly deaf grumpy cocker spaniel and he really enjoyed behind his ears being rubbed. Nero, a small chocolate Labrador type, really stole my heart - he is so good in every way but unfortunately has a blood disorder and leishmania, so gets overlooked. I have great hopes we can bring him over for Pete and I to foster. I think Nero will get on with Niki, who I recently adopted and I'm sure there is a home out there somewhere for him. Once people have seen him, they will love him!
All the puppies are adorable too and within a week of Lynne and I playing with them, have become quite socialised. The 3 orphan shepherd puppies are improving every day and their hair will slowly grow back. The 3 hound puppies are just beginning to leave their den and explore their surroundings, I will miss playing with them all. Luke and Mo should be arriving in the UK in January and I'm sure this fluffy duo will be snapped up long before they arrive. I'm hoping I will have the opportunity to see them before they go to their new homes. I wonder if they will remember me?
I will really miss all the dogs when we go. You cannot help but get attached but at least I can look forward to a lot of them traveling to England to find their forever homes. The ones we cannot help are always a worry but at least they are safe from the poisonings and have plenty to eat ; a much better life than being on the street.
In a while I will be giving them all their last cuddle and saying goodbye, I'm sure it will be emotional but I know 'S' and her helpers are keeping them safe and I'm sure I will visit again soon.
