I wanted a pet ferret.
I really really wanted a pet ferret.
Because – seriously? How cute are they?
I told my husband that ferrets make excellent pets and that everyone says so.
He replied that ferret owners only say that to make you take their ferret.
That’s okay. I’m over the ferret thing. Sort of.
But I do want a new puppy.
As a result Bonnie Prince Charlie, the beagle cross bloodhound, has spent a week moping around in anguished boredom.
This is devious I know, but I don’t want to wait the six months stated unequivocally by my spouse.
I’m impatient that way, blame it on Mercury being in retrograde or something.
The Ark Animal Centre is a home for rescued puppies and pregnant Moms (not the human kind) in Fourways, Johannesburg.
The puppies are fostered out to homes before adoption so that they learn about manners and peeing outside and not climbing on couches.Very important things.
Alexandra and I spent a lovely two hours having puppies climb all over us.
The fabulous people there are utterly committed to helping dogs and finding puppies new homes.
Sadly, they’ve just become aware of three plots where over 150 dogs live in semi-feral conditions producing puppies like… well like… rabbits.
They need to raise R6 000 to spay and neuter these dogs so that they don’t produce any more delicious little mini-me’s.
At the moment they have at least 8 puppies from these dogs riddled with ringworm and worse.
Please, if you can, make a donation.
To neuter one dog costs around R300 and every little bit counts.
