Can you help?!

I'm sending out a couple of pleas for help this evening ....

1. We have been 'offered' a cocker spaniel who is currently rather neglected and alone, and we're considering taking him in so that he can get out of his current miserable situation. Apparently his family are renovating their house at the moment but not living there, just throwing a bit of food over the fence for him in the evenings and leaving him by himself, and they want to give him away.

We've already booked flights to travel interstate from Christmas Day until January 2nd, and we'd be extremely grateful if we could find someone to look after him during that time. Please let me know if you're in Melbourne and would consider giving him some Christmas holiday care, or if you know anyone who might be willing to do so ...

(our little Gus has put on a serious expression to try to convince you!)


... and another little snippet:

2. The Diamond Creek Donkey Shelter seems to be in significant financial trouble at the moment - donations of any size will be gratefully received. Just thought I'd better spread the word....


We sponsor this little chap, whose name is Dudley.

Oh - that's very sad, and Gus's mournful expression is doing a very good job of tweaking my heartstrings! I wish I was closer to Melbourne as I'd love to keep the neglected little fella company over the Christmas holiday. It's very good of you to put out this call and I do hope you find someone nearby who can help - good luck!

Hi Juddie

I wish I was closer too - I'd take him for a while. Have you found someone yet?

Juddie said...

Thanks guys,

we haven't actually managed to rescue him yet - our friend is trying to get hold of the owner but hasn't seen him for several days now. He told me this morning that he'll leave a note today asking the guy to call him ASAP.

I have a small army out looking for s Christmas holiday home for the pup though!
