HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW?

KNITTED PLANTS

On April 23th I took this photo after attempting to persuade some of my climbers to ‘knit’ themselves around each other to fill in the gaps on my newish wall.

And here it is today some 6 weeks later!

Still some way to go, but very pleased with progress.  Even got some pink flowers!  The rest of my garden plans have been rather postponed by the arrival of four orphaned pups (my friend has the other four) nearly 8 weeks old now so hopefully will be off my hands next week if we can find good homes!

THANK YOU PAWS FOR PUPPIES

TWO PUPPIES HAVE HAD THEIR FIRST VACCINATIONS, Sox and Baby Veera.  Thanks to you lovely people.  Two more booked for tomorrow, hopefully all by the end of the week.  Sue Burch and I want to thank you all so much, particularly Daisy Boo, without whom, none of this would have been possible. 

What with monies received, and monies promised, we should have enough to give all pups their first half of their vaccinations and feed them next week.  Posters have gone up in a few vets, shops, pet shop etc, and door to door leafleting will start at the weekend.  Fingers crossed they all find homes quickly.

Now, whats left?  You tell us….

We have exceeded our expectations for the pups.  We are more than happy to thank you all and leave it right there. 

Of course there is always more we could do, for example some of the new owners will be more affluent than others and will contribute towards the vaccinations, but if I can say, the more ‘working class’ Moroccan families could do with help with their second batch of injections, due in one month.  There are three dogs going to a family in the mountains, Ruff, Tumble and Menace, they are a bonded group and we think will thrive as free spirits like their mum Sissy (and her sister Betsy) except they will also have food shelter and a family to look after them.  With two males and one female, it would be great (but in no way essential) to put any extra funds towards Ruff’s sterilisation.

So, Daisy has been working away at an idea for having a live auction on Friday of some Paws for Puppies canvas bags, should she continue, or call it a day, or just put them up for sale?

Let us know what you think…

And once again thank you, you big hearted group of friends.

UP FOR ADOPTION IN TEN DAYS

image

The only little boy left for adoption, ‘Blackie’ is adorable and is going to be just as loyal and good natured as his mum.  He is a good eater and as soon as he has finished his dinner he keels over into a deep sleep.  Then when refreshed he loves a cuddle and a game.  He is a very clever little dog, he already knows to pee pee on the paper – not around the house.

A little girl ‘Brows’ is full of fun.  She is always stealing the toys from my dogs and hides them in the sleeping cupboard.  Brows is eating well and has started to crunch croquettes in the last couple of days, so it will soon be time to rehome her. The only opportunity I have to take a photo is when shes asleep as she is usually moving too fast!

The final pup, ‘Dennis’ is a little behind the others in development so will be ready later.

Anyone in Agadir interested in taking a pup please contact me.

BABY’S ADOPTION AGREED

image

This is Ahmed who we see walking his dog Rosa in the park.  Sue told him about the pups (he knew Betsy and Sissy), and asked him if he would know anyone wanting a puppy ‘Oui, Moi!’ he said, and today he met and instantly fell in love with Baby.  He is taking her in two weeks, inshallah, when she is eating proper ‘solids’.  Both of us shed a tear when he had left as he is clearly an experienced and loving dog owner and Baby’s life will be everything we had hoped for her.  Rosa is beautifully behaved and ‘high fives’ Ahmed and kisses his cheek.  They adore each other, and you will see from the blissful look on Baby’s face that shes very content to be joining this family.

PAWS FOR PUPPIES

Six full contented puppies.  I cannot believe how quickly they have perked up in four days.  They have now started to play and are much more alert.

Thanks to the generosity of friends we now have supplies for a couple more weeks’ food and special puppy milk.  Their foster mum mixes them together to make a sort of gruel which they lap up, walk through, splatter and generally make a mess with!

Agadir readers – they will be big enough to rehome in five or six weeks (Inshallah) so please talk to your friends, neighbours and acquaintances, anyone who might know someone who wants a dog!
