    Good deed for the day...

    What was yours?

    I had a a phonecall yesterday from the lady I adopted my boy Rufus from, asking if I had room for one more.. I said I really can't, three big dogs is about all we can fit in the house! I couldn't foster either, would break my heart! So I said I'd set about asking people if they are interested.

    Somehow managed to persuade my boss, and he's going for a border collie pup, just phoned through and organised everything. Oh my, I feel so happy, a dog needing a home has finally found it :)

    I will get the link to the dogs, and if anyone else in interested they are based in France, speak English and are looking for homes for cats/dogs. Cost is normally 150 as a donation to the vet costs and feeding.

    As you can see, there are some lovely dogs, and even purebred dogs too!

    That's great Duffy!

    My good deed for the day is helping some new horse folks. There is a place about 2 miles from mine that has had a varying number of horses in a small lot in less than ideal conditions for awhile. I'd sent my vet by this summer and she stopped and talked to them.

    Yesterday my hubby ended up at this place for work (he does mainline maintenance for the cable company) and the folks asked if he was "the cable guy with the big horse farm down the road". He told them yes, but he was the horse guy by association lol!

    Turns out it was the ex-wife of the man who owned the place. He took off to another state with his new girlfriend and left the horses completely untended. They are their children's horses. She knows nothing about horses and was in tears talking to my hubby. I will be going this afternoon to meet her and help her with a plan to get them back up to condition and keep them there.

    It gives you that warm fuzzy feeling inside when you've done something good for the day though.

    Good for you though MHFQ, turned a bad situation around... seems that sometimes what we class as abuse isn't always a fault, just a lack of understanding.

    You should get before and after pictures to show the upkeep and change in them!
