Yesterday I showed, what I thought to be a remarkable amount of self control. I went to see an animal in need of a new home and came back empty handed, It was a case of head ruling the heart.
I drove a few miles down the coast, and on one of the hottest days of the year I met up with a four and a half year old bulldog bitch called Millie.
She was a delightful character. Lively, affectionate, needy, and totally adorable, and so just as I could feel my objective grey cells wavering, I mentally started to list the more challenging aspects of Millie's condition.
At nearly five, she was still not housetrained. She was suffering from two eye conditions ( cherry eye and entropion) and her interaction with a bouncy, screaming little chihuahua was just a little too sparky for my liking.
Our old bitch Meg, is sparky enough, for one household to cope with
With a heavy heart, I made my decision mentally then and there, with a fat bulldog bitch bouncing all over my head.
And I drove away knowing that I had done the right thing
Anyhow...on a brighter side, my collection of items for the flower show and for the arts stall and raffle on my Open day , seems to be growing rapidly. The kindness of my fellow bloggers in donating these items is just phenomenal as on a daily basis,another package arrives from another small corner of the globe.
Thank you all so very much. The items received for my open day will help raise money for both St Michael's Church here in Trelawnyd and for Marie Curie cancer Care.
