LOWDOWN Winter 2012

DAISY - an update

BY GEOF ALDERTON

Many of you will remember from the last edition of Lowdown the article by Tony and myself about Daisy, the young hound who was abandoned by her previous owners, picked up by a dog warden and passed on to us for short-term fostering.

We are still in touch with her new owners and are pleased to report she is doing extremely well. She is now living with Lee and Pam and their two Basset Hounds - Elvis and Lulu. She is in good health, putting on weight and giving both dogs a good run around as well as trying to steal their food, so she has to be fed separately. I am also told she likes to patrol around the garden to guard against cats (!) and then come in for a well-earned sleep.

At least this is one story with a happy ending. At the time of writing, it is seven months since we lost Iggy and it doesn’t get any easier, so after Daisy we decided we would to do a bit more fostering as and when it suits us. That way we are not committed to anything permanent.

As for the future, who knows?
