I was so happy to receive a few offers of a foster home for baby Strawberry. Her poor mangled toes needed frequent cleaning, and I just didn’t have the time to give her the attention she needed. It’s the reason I waivered when asked by AFCD staff if I would take such young puppies, because I know I’m not around enough to hand feed on demand or provide the cuddles, or even the basics like cleaning up after they have stamped in their food and wiped it everywhere. So now it’s just Strawberry”s two siblings that need fostering, and they are already streets ahead of her in every way. It’s funny how different puppies from the same litter can be, and if I didn’t know that they were siblings I would swear they weren’t.
While I waiting at the Ap Lei Chau Homing Centre for Strawberry’s foster to arrive, the tiny chihuahua boy Gray was also outside, in the arms of the person who had just picked him up from Acorn following his desexing. He was only handed over to a friend while the adoption forms were completed, and that was it, he was gone. Good for him, and I’m happy that he found a new home so quickly.
Earlier in the day there was another (hopefully) happy ending when sweet Cotton was chosen as a potential friend for a schnauzer. As Cotton had been living with a schnauzer before she was surrendered, I’m doubly pleased that she will have this chance. I’m sure from her side things will work out as she’s such a dear little thing.
The posters and flyers for Peak to Fong were delivered on Friday, so now it’s just a matter or getting them out and about. One of our volunteers, Events team leader Linda, had already managed to distribute a whole bundle of them and I ended my day by dropping a stack at Acorn Vet Hospital before heading home. The event is just over a month away and things are starting to step up a notch or three, so we’ll all be extra busy in the coming weeks. Tickets (T-shirts) are available online, or at the outlets specified on the website link, including Whiskers’n'Paws where I’ll be (of course) on Sunday afternoon. I hope there are enough people who want be watching the rugby to make it worthwhile!
