Yesterday was a very exhausting day we were both pretty relieved, me especially once the catheter problems had been resolved.
Just after I posted yesterdays blog post and was settling down to a relaxed evening when the phone rang.
It was Rebecca, a woman who I had been in touch with just after Spike died who wanted to find a new home for her Jack Russell.
When I first got in touch with Rebecca, we were just too late as the dog had been placed taken on a trial placement.
We were both disappointed as he looked a nice little dog, so I sent Rebecca a mail asking her to let me know if it did not work out.
I did have an e- mail on Monday telling me the trial placement was not working and wondering whether we would still be interested in her dog.
Immediately mailed that we were and waited to hear more, on Tuesday evening Rebecca called to say she wanted to meet us.
She said she would call us later that evening but she did not, I mailed her the next day to find out what was happening, and if it was happening.
She mailed me that it was and she would be in touch, did not hear anything all day
then at 19.00 Rebecca called to arrange a meeting.
She suggested we meet at the station at 20.15 and if the dogs were ok with each other we could take him home.
Richie went down to the station to meet Rebecca and Jacky, the dogs got on ok so he came home at 21.00 with our new dog.
He was very excited to be here and started playing with the dog toys like he had never seen any before, it was a sweet sight
Several toys did get destroyed in the process, we decided after seeing him playing happily to rename him Cyril, a new start and a new name.
