During one of our CNVR programmes, Janey (our founder) and Abbie, one of our nurses were awaiting our dog catching team to return with a truck full of healthy dogs needing a neuter and vaccine, but they were taking a while!
Chomping at the bit to do more, Janey and Abbie also set off out in the hope of finding some more dogs to bring back with them. It was soon clear why the dog catchers had been gone for a while – the midday sun was blazing down and there wasn’t many dogs to be found! When it’s the peak heat of the day, we often find that dogs hide away in the shade or their secret spots, waiting for the cooler part of the day.
About to turn around and give up, they spotted Dougal trotting down the road, with a suspicious looking half stump on one of his front legs. Curious to see what was going on, they pulled over and wondered if they might have a chase on their hands – but Dougal hopped up to them right away, friendly as ever to say hello!
