Marley – Dukas: Happy End!!!!

Sunday, March 22nd, 2009

Marley-DukasWould you believe that the young couple was vacationing in Thailand when the mother of the young woman lost their beloved pup (see recent post about Marley? And that their holiday was spoiled? That they could not change their ticket and fly back earlier? That they returned 2 days ago and searched all the island? Would you believe that the young man is the son of the woman who called 2 days ago about pup Bubulina, and the brother of the one who found the sad little wounded female last spring? You better believe it!! This family loves animals and we wish there were many more like them….

BubulinaBubulina sought shelter at an animal lovers’ house. The woman was afraid someone might harm the pup while she was away at work and took it to work. The beautiful Schnauzer Mix is now staying at Barbaras home.Bubulina

Two little puppies were found in Punda. They were not in great shape… They were full of ticks, but all of them dead. Somebody must have treated them. And then left them in Punda. Strange!Margy Rita

Alkioni – another popular puppy-dropping-spot…

Feeding TimeA considerable number of unwanted puppies have been deposited on the doorsteps of Alkioni ever since the place opened. The 3 sweet little bears are the latest example. Animal lover Christoph has taken them in, feeding them with the bottle until they can eat. We wish that people would sterilize their females instead of producing unwanted offspring endlessly!3 Pups

MartiniAs the first dog who got tied up at Biggies place and had to wait for her to come back home and find him, Martini will never be forgotten. He is a very friendly little male who behaves perfectly well in the house.

tangoBiggie’s neighbour came looking for her in the morning. 2 very hungry dogs had shown up near his chicken pen. One of them, still with a string on his neck, had been caught in a bush. He seemed unfriendly, was barking. Biggie approached him. The poor dog was very skinny and just frightened. He is now staying at Biggies. The second dog, a terrified puppy, is still on the loose. Biggie hopes that she can catch it before the neigbours will shoot it.Tango
