progress update 5/11/11


progress update 17/7/11

Charlie one of our Dawgdogs came with Sarah who he now lives with to visit Helen at her allotment.

He has obviously heard what a good weed killer Buddy was and decided to help with digging over one of the beds and a good job he made of it too as you can see from the photo.

Helen was most impressed with his fine sieving of the soil and encouraged him to dig over different parts which she then raked over.

Come again soon Charlie, Helen has another new bed to dig over!

CHESTER’S STORY

I am just a little lad
My start in life was very bad
My owners – they just didn’t care
If I was – or wasn’t there

Almost every single night
They would argue, they would fight
But you could always guarantee
They’d take their anger out on me

To get away I really tried
But there was nowhere to hide
Very luckily for me
One day they did both agree

They didn’t want me anymore
So I was booted out the door
A nice lady came and took me away
In a dogs home I went to stay

There were many dogs like me
Waiting of a family
Waiting for someone to come
And give them all a happy home

People would come and take one away
I was always the one to stay
The months did turn into a year
And I was feeling safe in there

If interest someone did show
I didn’t really want to know
This was the place I wanted to be
Coz nobody was hurting me

But the dreaded day did come
When someone came to take me home
Oh no – Please do let me stay
My life was put in disarray

Please don’t let it start again
And I am put through all that pain
A shout, a kick and then a slap
Please don’t send me back to that

Part 2

I was given a basket full of toys
Even some that made a noise
They were very, very, very kind
But those early days were on my mind

So I made it very clear
That I didn’t want them near
Day after day after day after day
Behind the curtain I would stay

Another favourite place to be
Was tucked away behind the settee
I know it wasn’t very nice
But I bit my owners more than twice

So I waited for a clout
But they didn’t even shout
Six months went by and then a year
And I began to lose my fear

Every day they talked to me
And the patience that was shown to me
Any fool could clearly see
That no harm would ever come to me

Now they are my bestest friends
And this is where my story ends
At last I know I will always be
Part of a loving family

WARNING: THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREASE IN LOCAL DOG THEFTS RECENTLY

Updated July 4, 2020 Categories: news.

The following is an account of what happened to a DAWGdog owner this morning:
“I was walking * towards the rugby field on Hardy crescent and a silver 4×4 bibed it’s horn and I turned to see if I knew who it was, I didn’t so I carried on walking across the field. When I got to the other side of the road the car was there, they wound down the window so I asked if they needed any help, the guy just started asking loads of questions about * and I started to get a bit worried, then he asked me if I wanted to sell “the dog”. I shouted no and started to walk away and they started to reverse the car towards me, so I ran.
There was a man in his 50s with balding head, white fair skinned and a heavy stature, the woman of similar age had dark hair but she was wearing a dark face mask.
The car was like a hilux with a solid shell on the back, silver in colour with 2 names on the back passenger side. Either jonny and jody or Charlie and jody.
I reported to the police when I got back home.”

Felix

Updated June 27, 2020 Categories: dogs, progress updates, successfully rehomed.

Felix has now found a home !!

progress update: 27/06/2020

Felix is a gentle loving boy, he enjoys going for his walks and having a good sniff.
He likes to meet other dogs but can get a bit excited.
We are working on his recall but at the moment it is very selective and will need a lot more work before he can go off lead.
He may scent mark in the house so careful introduction to new areas would be advised.
He has gained confidence with men but is nervous of sudden movements.
He loves food and will take any opportunity to get more and has a very good reach!
His favourite thing is to try and climb on your lap for a good cuddle.
Sue

Felix arrived last Sunday from a dog pound.
He is around two years old and a Lurcher with Collie in his mix.
He was extremely nervous at first and very frightened of men but seems to be more relaxed now.
Below is what Sue his foster Mum has written about his progress –

Felix has had a good first night and is getting on well with Marler (Nero).
He is already gaining confidence with Andy.
