Look who I finally got to meet in person
- remember Twinkle the rescue kitten??
She has actually been weaned off the bottle for about 2 months now but I got to feed her one and she was so funny, the second she saw it her two paws went out to hug it towards her
She loves the fire (don't worry this is not the same stove that the starling came down - that stove is never in use)
And now for the doggy drama - last night we found a husky dog when we were driving around and she seemed lost and panicky - I got out of the car and she was pretty tame, she had a very distinctive collar but no identification attached. It was midnight and there was no sign of her owner so she came in the car and we went to the police station - they didn't know who owned her but we left our contact details. I also called my sister who bought a husky puppy a year ago to see if she had details of the breeder but she hadn't kept them.
Took her home anyway and gave her a bed in the utility room for the night - the poor thing was lonely and started eating the door!!! So down I went and slept on the couch with her cuddled up beside me (I wasn't complaining - although 10 days into the marriage and I'm sleeping on the couch with the dog isn't exactly the best start lol
) anyway first thing this morning the search for her owner began - we firstly called the local radio station and left contact details with them, then of course Facebook (no pictures though because I didn't want just anyone claiming a husky) , then we went off in the car with the first stop being the vet to check for a microchip - I was delighted when they detected one and off they went to call the number - got through to the dogs previous owner who explained that they gave her away two years ago and had no idea who owned her now
Next stop was the pet shop to see if they knew her and to stock up on dog nuts, a bowl, a lead, and a travel water dish (I knew it was going to be a long day given that no one had contacted us all night or morning so far). I called the pet rescue shelter, the pound (after a lot of debate - there was no way I was handing her in there) and stopped at every person we came across along the way. No one knew her
Then eventually (and randomly) we pulled in outside a house to stop and think and out comes a man saying that it was his dog!! I was extremely reluctant to hand her over so he went back inside and brought out his phone to show me evidence - sure enough he had a video of her and she was wearing the collar (the collar was very unique - it was made like a Cowboys hanky if that makes sense). So I made him promise to get her microchip updated and get a medal attached to her collar with his details. I asked him about fencing etc. and he said he had just moved to the area - which made sense given that no one recognised her and why she didn't seem to know where she was going.
Her name is Coco and she is six years old - he said that he actually got her as a rescue also and she was pregnant when he got her (he hadn't realised it at a the time). She had such a beautiful personality I hope she stays safe.
