Today, Mr A went on the motorbike to Mehmet's surgery, collected Mehmet's van and returned home to pick up Megan and Sammy for their operations.
The van will only take two of our three large dogs, so when Mr A brings Megan and Sammy back home, he will then return the van with Blondie. She will stay at Mehmet's clinic for a couple of days and he will fit in her operation as soon as he is able.
There is a slight problem here though. Blondie is nowhere to be found today. She comes and goes, and it's becoming increasingly difficult to keep tabs on her.
She still isn't happy being confined, and goodness knows how she manages to jump chicken wire fencing to get out, but she does. The main problem I think is that she feels intimidated by the other two, because they had already established their territory before she arrived. I think she would have settled fine with just one dog, male rather than female. Megan and Sammy don't attempt to escape, because they are quite happy in their new environment.
I'm hoping the ops will help them all settle and that Blondie may stop escaping. We have already heard comments in the village about her being a nuisance and it worries me greatly that someone might shoot or poison her. We may have to think long and hard about another plan for her, maybe someone to adopt her away from the village (although finding people to adopt dogs here and actually care for them is much like looking for a needle in a haystack).
I just want her to be safe.
