“But we’re emigrating..”- Update- ADOPTED!!


Sometimes dogs are advertised, their forever human clocks eyes with them (via a Facebook post) over their morning coffee, and before the sun sets that doglet is snuggled up safe! 

Sometimes it hella more complicated than that, and we go quiet, and you wonder what exactly happened to those dogs, and we stall and you demand an update and and and…

But as good old Shakespeare said- “all’s well that ends well!”

And I can at last announce that Chloe and Pixie are happily homed, separately, but happily! Phew!

And that dear humans is why we don’t just go around dumping our life long pets on rescuers heads! Because, contrary to the popular belief that pure breds get homes, (right?!) there isn’t actually a queue of people desperately wanting to pick up the responsibility you just decided to drop! 

Any emigrating muppets reading this: make a plan, start saving, basically be the person your dog thinks you are!!
