It’s not often that you’ll see me promoting violence (though I’ve felt like punching some people on occasions), but when it’s for a good cause (HKDR and others) and done with that in mind, then I’m all for it. This particular event is taking place in March and our ‘champion’ (fighting for HKDR) is Ben “Boom Time” Hartwell. To support Ben all you have to do is click “Like” on the City Fight Club Facebook page, and the please share on your own page so more people can “like” Ben and help him raise more money. It’s a very easy way to support the charity of your choice – which is HKDR of course – with minimal effort. (Just click on “Who do you support?”) Here’s the Facebook link: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=293744807352300&set=a.293744430685671.69235.201352179924897&type=1&theater

I know many of you want to know how George is doing, and I’m happy to say that he’s improving every day in his (lovely) foster home. We have had a few enquiries about him but it seems that the photos made George look like a smallish dog whereas he’s actually large, the size of a labrador I’d say, and he’s still not a year old so may still add an inch or two. Large dogs can grow until they’re around eighteen months old, while small dogs reach full size at a much younger age. So we are still looking for a permanent home for this lovely boy, and thanks to his foster he should be walking nicely on a leash and possibly toilet trained (that’s work in progress at the moment) by the time he leaves.
Seal will go for his MRI today (Wednesday) and is still doing as well as can be expected for a puppy that can’t walk. A day is a long time in these situations, and I’m anxious to get the scan over with so we have an idea of what can be done.
There was very good news about Lamma, my super-lovely big boy. He has exceeded all and any expectations, and is doing so well that I can hardly believe it. He’s already walking on a leash and enjoying long hikes, and behaving like the perfect gentleman. That gives me hope for all my other Lamma scoundrels.
I had arranged to send some of the doglets to Tai Po today and had the van lined up and the crates ready, but when I went to get the chosen ones (those that I thought would be happy at Tai Po and would stand a good chance of being adopted), there were the dreaded signs of snotty noses, something I had hoped I was seeing the tail end of. The last thing I want to do is export this dog “cold” to our main kennels, so the doglets had a temporary reprieve.
I think the problem that was preventing my blog from being published has now been dealt with, and thank you all for missing my daily musings and news and asking me if I was OK.
