Yesterday was horrendous.
Sissy May….12 week old greyhound puppy brought in. Her leg had been broken weeks ago and is beyond repair. It has been amputated.
Walt….blue bull cross, left in a crate in the back of a van no food or water. He slept all the way back on the front seat..
And the puppies…..5 girls and 3 boys. No idea what cross they are. They are lurcher puppies.
My day started at 7.30am…the black puppy arrived around 9, from the owner, they had brought her down from the North East, and i went to pick my mate up from Barnsley. We took said puppy straight to the vets in Huddersfield. On the way there she was named Sissy May.
We then went to Halifax and unloaded the ridiculously full van at the shop. Well you said you wanted clothes!!
In the meantime Walt had arrived with us from Wigan. Sprung out of the van by his rescuers. Not the first one they have rescued.
Dropped my mate off back in Barnsley..By this time it was about 5,30….happily on my way home with Walt, snuggling on the front seat and a bottle of red in the footwell…Sissy May having had her leg amputated and recovering well from the op. The phone rang….
Walt deposited in the vet room with his tea and off we went back to Barnsley to pick the puppies up…They said they had been found in a box.
8.30pm we finished, puppies safe in bed….didn’t know if two of the little ones would make it…but they have, so far…
The thing is, i could kick off, i could rant and rave….but the next time they won’t ring.
They are all very lucky…there will be a lot of dogs out there tonight that aren’t so lucky.
Thanks guys, for whatever it is that you do, we couldn’t do it without you…..Deb and all at Tia
Some we expected to lose. Others were a complete shock. Before we enter 2017 we thought it would be nice to say goodbye to the following guys. We welcome the new but miss the old friends. Also lost to us this year are Wizzwozz my little pony, Witchy my whippet, Claude the giant rabbit (natural causes honestly) and countless mice courtesy of Bob, for which the barn owls are very grateful. We may have missed a few, hopefully they will forgive us.
Also one more. Margot decided to check out without warning a few days ago. Margot and Jerry the miniature goats, came to Moorside not long after we moved. Their old owner thought it would be OK to feed them pasta which dramatically swelled their stomachs to their present day size. We had to load them up in a transit van to get them home and they have been part of the furniture ever since. Jerry misses her very much as do we. Bye bye love.
Margot. Goodbye gorgeous
Baby doves that the crows took. 2017 will be different horrible things.
Thank you Deb for breaking my heart. Why? Because a few years ago you introduced me to what was to become my boo baby. The most loyal loving dog I could ever have dreamed of. Yes she was an older dog but with that came wisdom, knowledge and forgiveness of mankind.
On the Thursday before Xmas I had to break my promise to her of a big fat juicy xmas dinner as the big C had got the better of her and paralysed her back end. So why say thank you for a broken heart? Why because without you I would not have had the pleasure of her in my life and the pain I feel is nothing compared to the love she gave me. Would I consider taking on another older dog? Once the wounds heal, without hesitation.
Thank you , Tracy.
We are looking to open a few more shops. Small market towns like Meltham, Hebden, Todmorden and Pickering are by far the best sort of areas..
Unfortunately town centres are no longer viable..But we still have Halifax for another couple of years.
Any ideas please get in touch. Save me trawling the interent.
We have had 30 kennels sponsored so far….Brilliant….thanks everyone
We are hopefully on Schedule for the kennel block coming down on the 9th January…..
But if you want to foster now please do!!!! Please…
