Morag clipping

Hello, It’s the end of another year, lots of good and some bad.

James is going to be a success, we had him at the vet’s today and he’s has had a very special hair cut,

short back and all off……..

A special thanks goes to Morag and Chelcie who spent nearly 4 hours working on him.

I have posted a few photos of him when he was getting his hair do, but he was sedated and they were taken on a wee mobile phone. It gives you an idea how bad he really was.

James is so traumatised, I wish he could tell me what has happened in his past that makes him so scared.

Countdown to Christmas…

Hello, Today has been busy.

I was called out to rescue an injured Fox, He was lying on the side of the road just outside  Walkerburn.

As yet he hasn’t moved much but we have left him very quiet and warm, tomorrow will tell.

duckI have 2 ducks looking for homes, they are both drakes [mallards].

These ducks were brought here by a lady who reared them with her own ducks,

Being drakes she has no room for them now.

They can go seperate or together if you have a big enough pond,

also they are easy to pick up at same time remain wild.

James, poodle (update)

This is how my old owners left me!

The last few days have been very busy and I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything.

James our stray poodle has been offered a new home, the potential new owners stay in West Lothian , These people are coming to visit on saturday to see if James likes them. James was found wandering around Kirkton Manor , nr Peebles about three weeks ago.

I still can’t get him to fully trust me, we have no time limit so the longer he’s here the better he will get.

James needs to have his hair shaved off before he’s ready to leave ,as he’s very matted and this must be uncomfortable.I will keep you all up to date as to James’s progress.
