Sat 30th June: A random day
It was hard to believe that only yesterday we were all wondering about the typhoon and whether it would be a “real” one, because today the sun was out and it was a lovely Saturday. I was at home and intending to get things done, like trying to finish off Bali’s haircut (he gets bored and wanders off), or seeing what I could do about the big sore (hotspot) on top of Safari’s head. He keeps scratching it and making it bigger, and I came up with what I thought was a brilliant idea of covering it with a hood.
Someone donated a bag of these hoods some time ago, and we had some fun at Whiskers’n'Paws taking photos of puppies wearing them (for a very short time, no cruelty involved!), and there was one that was big enough to fit Safari. All I had to do was to cut holes for his ears and the sore would be covered. For about one second as it turned out, a big failure, and now I’m back to scratching my own head (figuratively speaking) to see if I can think of any other way to give the sore time to heal. A cone would be the obvious answer, but in a multi-dog household where anything plastic is seen as something to be chewed, it would last as long as the hood did.
I was doubly happy that the typhoon came and went as quickly as it did because now I can take the puppies to Whiskers’n'Paws as usual, and hope (pray) that at least some of them find homes. As well as the lovely pups I have on offer, we also have young (and mature) adults at Tai Po that are totally lovely in both looks and character. Lulu, Honey and Edie are new-ish arrivals, and there’s Fuzzy too, inexplicably still waiting. I would have added Bootie to the list but he was adopted today.
