A busy week of new animal arrivals
It's been a very busy week, with nine animals from different owners coming in on one day.
We have lots of small dogs, although most of these have ‘little dog syndrome’.
Small dogs include Jack Russells, pug crosses and a Patterdale type.
Jack is a very handsome, five-year-old, rough-coated Jack Russell. He has lived with another small dog and also border collies, but has taken a dislike to them.
Little pug-cross-shiht tzu Jet is only four years old and an excitable little lad. He has lived with another dog, but was rather protective of her. On his own he isn’t at all bothered by other dogs so he would be best as an only dog in his own home.
We have three young black or black and white cats in. All are around 18 months old, with sleek coats as soft as feathers. We have two girls, Sasha and Milka, and one boy Toby.
Sasha is very confident and affectionate, while Toby, her brother, is taking time to find his paws. Milka arrived late on Saturday and decided to tuck up under her bed.
We were also joined by more rabbits this week, including a pair.
Bubbles and Chico are five years old and so relaxed and laid back they will make a fantastic couple of pretty pets.
Jess is a very attractive two-year-old, white with brown spots. Like most rabbits, she prefers her feet firmly on the ground, but is very nosey, especially when it comes to finding out what vegetables are on offer.
We were at the Co-Op Belford last week. BARK is one of the beneficiaries of its Local Community Fund Initiative, which runs until early March.
Thanks must also go to another branch of the Co-Op, Seahouses, which has been very supportive over the last year in hosting BARK collections.
It’s Chinese New Year this week and our shop is celebrating with a host of interesting and intriguing Chinese objects, as well as a colourful window display. We appreciate the donations we receive into our shop. They are always of such exceptional quality.
