An Ugly Story


So I’ve been quiet: last week was the rescue week from hell and social media was a bit beyond me..

  • Lamb died. 
  • Ugly had me running back and forth to behaviourists, failed homings, rehabilitation centres and vets.
  • Sampson was dumped TWICE!! 
  • Ally my Foster dog was injured…

Blood, sweat and tears literally!

I was fretting about how to update, what to post, how much to say..but here it is, the ugly truth (well most of it) if you will.

FYI Sampson and Ally are both grand: Sampson’s re-homed again, Ally felt sorry for herself for a whole day then saw a squirrel and forgot why! 

Always report dog fighting to your local rescue or SPCA, you can do it anonymously but make sure you tell someone cus the dogs can’t! 

I’m now off to rescue some wine out of bottles…sigh…
