It’s been a busy weekend at kennels. Firstly we welcomed two new arrivals. Handsome fellas Chilli and John can bee seen on our homeless hounds page. Then happy little sweetheart Blue went to his forever home and on Sunday we had the best news of the week when the lovely Chico went home after an almost 9 month wait for his forever home. Welcome Chilli and Jon and good luck to Blue and Chico – have a wonderful happy life boys.
It was good news for Irene this week when she learned she was reserved after a successful home check. Missy went to her forever home and we wish her well, bless her she had a long wait and Milly had a lovely day out with her friend.
Following the disappointing news that the dogs couldn’t go to the Suffolk Dog Day because of the weather we cheered them all up with extra treats and a lovely cooling bath.
We also welcomed Greaves (below) to our band of homeless hounds.
We made the best of the warm weather and bathed some of the dogs today. Here is cheeky Chico all in a lather and then soaking his Aunty Angie whilst shaking off the rinsing water!
Our longest stayer, the lovely Chico had fun and games this morning. First of all he went for a game of chase with his volunteer in the paddocks and then he learnt a new game of find the treat. He had to use his nose and his brain to work out where the treats were in the ball pit. He loved that game. He then had a good brush and lots of cuddles. Dear little Chico, he would so love a family to call his own.
Good news for Freddie, Cookie, Missy and Tudor. All of their home checks went well and they will all be going home soon.
After a slow May things have really picked up again on the homing front. The beautiful Sisters Jodie and Jill have been reserved and will be going home together. Tudor, Missy and Freddie are reserved subject to home checks, Cookie is having a second visit from his potential family and Lofty has a third date with Mavis. Fingers crossed all goes well with the home checks and that Cookie and Lofty’s second and third dates go well.
We have unfortunately had two boys returned this week.
Noah went of to live with 2 other dogs. One of the dogs decided that although she was happy to be in Noah’s company at kennels she didn’t want to share her home with him. Noah’s family said Noah behaved impeccably in the short time he was homed including being clean in the house.
Things unfortunately didn’t work out for Dart either and he has been returned, like Noah he is back through no fault of his own.
Both of these lovely boys can be seen on our homeless hounds page.
Meet our latest arrival Nemo on our homeless hounds page.
Milly had a pleasant afternoon out on Wednesday. She was taken for a walk around Alton Water Reservoir where she met a handsome young retriever named Darcy. She gave Darcy a bit of a wide berth at first. Not wishing to appear too keen she admired him from afar. But he was so gorgeous she just couldn’t help herself and gradually she got closer and closer to him. By the time they stopped at the cafe for a water break they had had their first kiss.
If nobody snaps up this sweet little girl beforehand she has a second date with Darcy next week.
The good news is that Joe has been reserved pending a home check. The bad news Chico went home on Saturday and came back on Sunday because a member of his family unfortunately developed an allergic reaction to him so he is now available again. Both Noah and Miranda spent time with their new families who will be taking them home soon.
