The dogs are recovering well from their ops. Sammy is still trying to get to Megan so I think the scent of the season that was about to start before her op may last for a while yet. Mehmet was so busy that his van wasn't available to bring Blondie home until yesterday afternoon. It's a shame because she is such a timid dog and those few days away from us has meant starting from square one again to get her to trust us.
She escaped once yesterday, but returned a little while later. I don't think she has had as much food at the vet clinic than I would normally give her. She really needs building up so I am feeding her often at the moment.
We are playing a game of musical
We left him in the garden yesterday morning and put Megan in the area at the back...she gave a sigh of relief. I'm sure she was happy not to have him pestering her constantly to satisfy his sex drive.
When Blondie returned she stayed in the garden with Sammy for a while, then went to the back area with Megan. Apart from her one escape, she has remained with Megan ever since. Sammy has made a few attempts to break in to their area, but is now stretched out under the gazebo. We will just keep swapping them around until things settle down.
I had a visit from my friend Karen yesterday. Karen is the woman who founded and runs the Turkish Animal Group charity. She currently has more than 80 dogs in her care, awaiting adoption, and she still continues to go out every day to feed dogs in the forest and on the beach. I don't know how she does it! She has given me loads of useful advice. There's really nothing she doesn't know about dogs.
I can't believe we actually chatted for 4 hours. The time just flew by. A very pleasant afternoon.
