I know last month’s blog was a little sad, but sometimes sad things happen within a rescue. Thankfully though, this month has been a lot better and I have some good news to share with you all!
As you know, Pets at Home are great for helping us out and we hold lots of microchipping days at their branches. Well on 11th Oct we went to the Falkirk branch for our fifth chipping day there and it was amazing! The very clever chipping volunteers managed to microchip 157 dogs and cats. That means a total over over £1,700 was raised on the day! Mum was so excited about it and said that it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of all the volunteers who came along on the day!!
George and I were there, of course, but unfortunately because it was so busy I wasn’t able to come out and meet as many people as I would have liked to and I know people will have been disappointed not to meet me. George and I did keep a very careful eye on things those as you can see from my photo! Of course I am in the driving seat as I am always in charge!
Mum says we are still very busy with boxers coming in and not so many going out, so I am hoping that a few of my boxer friends will find homes this month so they don’t have to spend too much time in kennels. My Mum says that one of the problems is that everyone wants puppies? I don’t understand that because I am just wonderful and I am not a puppy?!
I am really looking forward to going to Inverness on 31st October although I think Mum is going to look really silly as she has bought a fancy dress costume. I think I might just hide in the campervan again and pretend I don’t know her! Of course she wont look as wonderful as I did in my Hallowe’en costume last year, it’s just a shame that one can’t wear the same outfit twice. Besides, I can’t always be the best dressed person around, sometimes I do have to let others have their turn.
So Happy Hallowe’en everyone and please remember to think about your pets on Bonfire Night. Remember, we don’t all like fireworks as much as you humans do!
