Sun 5th August: Fun and games at WNP
By the end of this month the long and lazy summer days will be over and potential puppy adopters will be returning to home, work and school. In the meantime my Sunday afternoons at Whiskers’n'Paws are more playtime for the puppies than homing events, and as always they had the best time. I had some new babies today and they were a bit overawed by the whole thing, but the older puppies just got straight down to business. First stop is the patch of “grass” for a pee and poo (they all do it), and then the games start.
At least it was busier for actual adoptions for the small dogs at the Ap Lei Chau Homing Centre, and three of them left with their new families. First to go was Jasper the Jack Russell, then later Mari the (new) Maltese and Kenzo the (also new) shiba inu.
At Tai Po the first of the “rottie-alike” pups got a home. These four were surrendered to AFCD with some sort of plastic rings attached to the end of their ears, like some horrible ID tag. I have no idea why they were there, but they were immediately removed of course. When I first saw this group at AFCD I thought they were young puppies because of their size, but it turned out that they were already around eight months old and just seemed younger because they looked so much like rottweilers. Today was Justin’s lucky day, and hopefully the other three will follow before too long. They are all very sweet doglets.
