An update

Firstly I want to say thank you blogville. Thank you so much to each and every one of you who has shared Marys (now MJ) story in the hope of finding her a forever home. I knew that blogville was an amazing place to be, but until those wheels start turning on your behalf you never truly understand how many amazing animal lovers there are in this place we like to call home.

I would like to make a special mention to some of you who have pulled out all the stops:

Savannah and Leo, you and your mum have been amazing, organising the treasure chest, the transport and making MJ the very first of your “play it forward series” (I feel confident to call it a series, as I know the next time a call comes in you will be the first to offer a paw of help!) Everyone here has been blown away by your passion and skill with which you pulled everything together.

The lovely Leo

Mollie and Alfie, hunting down a good friend and finding a potential home for MJ was amazing – thank you.

Mollie & Alfie look like they have already heard the news!

Rumpy, thank you to you and the whole gang for taking the time to interview MJ and share her story with your readers.
Rumpy always helps out a good cause!

(If any of you would rather I removed your photos please growl at typist and she will!)

Clowie, Easy, the gang at Brians home and everyone at Mumsys (and anyone else stupid typist has forgotten) who has blogged/tweeted/shared her story thank you!

Now onto the news, as most of you will have seen from the lovely Savannahs blog. Mary has now been renamed MJ and was happily enjoying life at the vets, enchanting everyone she met including the two Labradors that sometimes hung out there. During the day she had the run of the office, on an evening she was let loose in the kennels area at weekends she went home with one of the nurses, the only thing missing was her forever family to love. And it looked like this was about to change, as typist received an email late Wednesday night saying that a new home had been offered for MJ -woo hoo time to celebrate I hoped. Typist rang the vets to give them the good news, and was told that MJ had been moved to the Blue Cross, as they had a space for her and thought the chances of her finding a home were better with a rescue. So typist rang the Blue Cross…. I had to put away my half blown up pawty balloons when I overheard typist conversations with the Blue Cross.

Unfortunately when MJ arrived they noticed she seemed to be urinating a lot and so wanted to run some tests to make sure everything was a-ok with her. The results came back this morning and unfortunately it is not the news we had all kept our paws crossed for – the tests are showing MJ has diabetes. At this stage I do not know much more than that as it was a quick call to update me and typist on progress whilst she was being taken to the vets. The sad news is that this has put the halt on her potential forever home as the people stepping forwards have had to withdraw their offer, and there is now a urgent hunt on for a local foster home who can take MJ on as ‘cats with diabetes don’t do so well in a rescue.’

I will update you with more info when I have it, but for now keep your paws crossed, and enjoy these lovely photos! (There will be a video if typists computer ever starts behaving!)

Looking back at Summer

After my very waterey post last month I thought this month I would focus on how I spent the odd day of sun we had this month – yes of course you remember our summer it was that long period of rain broken by a day or two of sun……

Anyway, Dad took me and the whole family to a family fun dog show in our local village! It was great to see so many doggies all in one space and I did have a lot of fun saying hello to various new furiends. We were having a lovely time, and I was busy enjoying checking up on peemail when the day took a serious turn!
Clearly dad recognised me for the handsome specimen of a dog that I am and entered me into a class. I was very nervous as I stood there being judged, and I tried my best to stand really still and show the judge my best side, well what can I say the judge clearly had great taste as he awarded the first prize – although I was slightly less impressed to see that they were handing out Wagg dog food rather than my Harringtons!

Looking good don't you think?!

Looking good don’t you think?!

In fact they even had a big banner promoting this food! Don’t I look great stood in front of it?! Think they may take me on as the face of their food as well? I am sure I would help them sell more – anyway I digress!

Well clearly impressed with my amazing show skills dad decided to see if it ran in the family and entered Walt into his class. Well would you believe he won it too? And ok he was at a slight advantage being the only one in his class but still well done Walt – I am teaching you well!

It was a really lovely day, and it was so nice to see that they had a high class of judge for the show, with such good taste, and no my opinion isn’t even slightly jaded by the fact that I was named as reserved champ overall!!!

Celebratory treats for me I think!!
