Home and Away

This is Day 13 of my trip to England and it has passed very quickly.  I have spent a lot of time with Stella, Billy and Jimi and it's been very enjoyable...and tiring.

Tomorrow the boys are having a Halloween party with a few of their friends, so Stella and I are shopping for goodies today, and tomorrow morning we'll be decorating the sitting room with suitably ghoulish decorations.

Meanwhile at home, Mr A has been poorly while I've been away and feeling a bit sorry for himself.  There has also been a fair bit of rain.  In spite of this he has managed to complete the shelter to cover the kennels for Chas, Dave and Melek.

Mr A continues to feed the village dogs every day.  There are now 13 in total.

The Milas Belediye manager visited the village last week and Mr A approached him again about the plight of the dogs, saying that those that needed treatment and neutering should be collected by the Belediye vet and taken to the shelter.   The manager suggested that they be poisoned!!   Mr A had to be restrained by men in the teahouse to stop him hitting the manager, but strong words were spoken.  How on earth do we stand a chance of getting the Belediye vet to do the job he is paid to do if his manager has this attitude!

Mr A is also feeding the industrial estate dogs every two days, because one of the men who promised to feed them is not doing so.   He is leaving sacks of food with another man at the far end of the estate who is feeding 4 or 5 dogs, but there are now around 25 dogs on the estate.

Thanks again to all those who have kindly donated, but we always need more if we are to continue long term.  Every little helps.  Thankyou.

  1. How your grandsons are growing and changing! I haven't been on recently but did know you'd gone to England - glad you're having a good time but sorry to hear of poor Mr A's problems. At least he was restrained and didn't have an out and out fight.
    Enjoy your time with those gorgeous boys and your lovely daughter and leave sorting the Turks out til you get home. Mr A is doing some impressive work and I do hope he continues to find jobs to do - you can tell he does a really good job. Hugs, Axxx

      Fingers still crossed that Mr A's business takes off. Thanks for your lovely comment Annie xx
