So I’m sure you all remember Bruno, the little puppy I bought from those tik kops outside of Harley’s Liquors? You’ll be happy to know he’s now as happy as a clam, living with my friend Paige and her family.
Anyway, like I said in a previous post, I’m super grateful for all of who helped me place him. A big up to fellow hondtjie lover Brigitte Williers for offering to foster him while I ran around overseas. (She’s got her own fitness blog, The Jog Blog, have you seen it?) Another thanks goes to Ornella de Rose who also offered to help him find a home. Ornella’s involved with the Lucky Lucy foundation, which I’ll tell you about, but only once you’ve rukked those tissues out of your handbag… Ready?
In regards to how you can help, if you go to their website you can view their wishlist, get donation details and learn how to become a Gaurdian Angel to rescue doggies for just R50 a month. You can also check out their adoption guide and take a look at all the li’l ‘orphans’ they’re currently trying to place in good homes. Here are a few that make me wish to goodness I could just reach into my computer screen and scoop them up…
This is Herbert, 7 months:
He was thrown out as unwanted ‘rubbish’ when he was just a baba and he got very malnourished so his bones didn’t grow as they should. That’s why he looks a little wonky.
This sad eyed boo is Billy, 7 years:
Billy’s a special needs baba ‘cos he has the occasional fit. I had epilepsy for a year or two (ja, it turns out you can just get it sommer, you don’t have to be born with it) so I feel a li’l connection to this boy.
Still, not all rescue dogs have issues (my heart just tends bleed especially for the ones that do). There are lots of gorgeous, perfectly happy pups looking for homes too… doggies like Greeny, Pinky and Blacky:
So ja, if you’re thinking about getting a dog, please consider Lucky Lucy. They’ve got loads of potential pets who all just cant wait to be placed in loving homes.
