Sadly Sean was returned to us due to a change in his family’s circumstances. He has settled right back in, but since he is used to living in a home and have the full attention of his own humans, we hope he will soon find another home.
Sean is four years old, tall and good looking. He is a bit of a clown and very clever. It took me a few days to remember that he can open doors…He gets along fine with other greyhounds, but could get quite excited when spotting other dogs during his stay in Dublin. But since he is a friendly boy we think that with sensible introductions he could learn that dogs can look very different to him. He can be a little jumpy and also display some resource guarding around food and toys, and for this reason we feel he would do best in a home with children over 12 years old. Sean loves people, he loves cuddles on the sofa and spending time with people. If you want to learn more about him, please get in touch.
The weather is still pretty abysmal, but let’s go running into the weekend with the same zest as Diana and Sylvester. Bring it on!
A very big thank you to Rosmarie Quille who instead of presents on her special birthday asked for donations to several rescues. We are very grateful to have received €200.
Thank you! 🥰
Taking a trip to the vets is a common occurrence. But when you need to take a dog like Sonia, it all turns into a huge endeavour involving two people, a lot of screaming and snapping, and sedatives. This weekend Sonia got a cut on the underside of her jaw and it looked deep enough for me to want it cleaned out properly and for her to to have antibiotics and antiinflammatories. Sonia is the sweetest girl, but she has very high anxiety and when she is scared she bites. Yesterday I spoke to my vets and was given a sedative to give Sonia one hour before her appointment. I also gave her a Gabapentin last night. This morning she got her sedative and Evelyn arrived to help out. A woozy, but determined Sonia decided to put up a fight. She screamed, she tried to run away, she chomped down on the muzzle and refused to let go. It is exhausting and quite traumatising even gently forcing a terrified dog to accept something that scares them. We got the lead and the muzzle on Sonia and we got her into the van. She walked into the vet on her own, but she was shaking with stress and fear, and she also fought against further sedation. She was still half out of it when I picked her up. No one wanted her to wake up fully and give herself a heart attack out of sheer stress. She is back home, still woozy, but with a clean wound and medication. I’m so grateful to everyone at Ceithre Cos, who are willing to work me to make everything as easy as possible for my spooky dogs and to reduce their stress levels as much as possible. It’s a lot of work for everyone, butbit is worth it.
I need to say a massive, massive thank you to everyone who took.part in our Bake Sale yesterday. It was an amazing day and my head is still buzzing. This was a huge thing to pull together and it could not have been done without Evelyn and Mikey, and Jennifer, who all sold cakes and promoted greyhounds as pets.
First to the bakers, Candy Made, Jennifer, Tricia and Evelyn. Amazing cakes! To Annie Zette for the knitted sweaters and the coats. The Dog Boy donated home made dog treats. And to everyone who attended and made the day fantastic. Least but not last, to the greyhounds and lurchers who showed everyone what brilliant pets they make, Fane, Dora, Juno, Icy, Lily, Gandalf, Frederic, Zachary, Penny, Loki and his sister (I’m sorry, I never got her name).
Now for the big reveal. I had to do a recount as I thought I got it all wrong, but no. From the actual sale €691, and another €125 via PayPal, brings the total to an amazing €811!! ❤️❤️❤️
