Not so artful DODGER !!

The time spent on this computer ,is verging on disgusting .I find myself in a chicken and egg situation ,do I read all my alerts first or do I do an entry ?today Im not at work, I have read alerts , good job Idid, because in amongst the alerts was an e-mail from a very excited daughter Catherine/Kate ,now for the entry ....Kate works for a publishing firm she types and proof reads manuscripts .Yesterday she was approached by her boss to go to Wood green animal rescue centre(we adopted Scooby from there),to present a cheque on behalf of her boss and the company .The story was in the local press and local radio news,telling of an  eighteen month old terrier who had been involved in an accident with a lorry,dislocating his hip and with fractures down his back,so today our Kate is to meet a lady ,to see the theatre and the post op room,and to meet the aptly named DODGER!all of which is to be recorded,on webcam,so that all the people who donated will see her hand over the money,she has promised not to adopt Dodger she has a lovely german shepherd of her own,but knowing Kate she is going to be sorely tempted,I would assume its because of her enthusiam,about her own dear Maddy ,and training etc and her love of all animals that made her boss decide she was the obvious choice,to represent them today .I will of course keep you posted on this lovely story.

        HAVE A GOOD DAY EVERYONE ,WITH LOVE ,JAN XX

How lovely for Kate to be able to present a cheque to Wood Green Rescue Centre - and what a lovely Boss she must have...look forward hearing more.....Ally

I bet she was over the moon, Wood Green is a wonderful place; due to circumstances we had to take our beloved Molly there a couple of years ago, we cried all the way there and all the way back (I think Rob shed more tears than I did) but she needed someone who could give her 24/7 attention so it was the only option...we know she went to a good home and it was for the best reasons, but I miss her so much!

We need to learn to juggle :), I wouldn't be able to go to a animal home, would come back with everything

I spend way to much time reading other journals but I enjoy every minute of it. Hope you daughter enjoys herself today and wanna bet whether she comes home with Dogger or not? Let us know. Helen

I ask myself the same question every day, lol, and usually end up writing an entry first, then settling down for a nice read :o)  What a lovely thing to be chosen to do, to hand over a cheque to Wood Green.  And to spend some time there too, meeting the lovely Dodger, I'm sure he is lovely!  Looking forward to hearing how it went, and whether Kate resisted the temptation to bring him home or not ;o)

What a lovely day you daughter will have at the rescue centre. I have a soft spot for German Shepherd as our first dog was one.  Hope she does not get too tempted today with Dodger or maybe she will bring him home to you.  Love Joan.

We were going to look at Wood Green before we got Jake.  We knew we wanted a rescue and we had already registered with Battersea annex in Windsor.  They would have been our next stop when Jakey came along. Do keep us up to speed with this story Jan. :-)

Kate's job sounds very interesting :-)  And she's lucky to go and do that  I can understand that she would want to adopt him
