Saturday Evening News




Jazz welcomes a new little girl to his home!

It is a very long tale so I will try to be concise, on Friday 21st November, I rang both Janet Branderick and Tony Waller to see if either knew of a girl in need of a home, both said that it was very rare to get a youngish bitch in rescue, and did not hold out much hope! so on Saturday 22nd of November, Ian and I went to a Christmas fair for greyhound and whippet rescue to see if they had any whippet/lurcher girls that would be suitable. The weekend passed but on Monday morning came a phone call from a concerned Tony "Carmel a lady has just phoned me to say she saved a bedlington bitch from death row at a local pound and could I help" Tony gave me Val's number and I rang her straight away, what a lovely lady! we arranged to go next day. The rest is history. Brian has worked patiently, little by little, for three days to remove her matted shell suit, eventually our new blue jewel emerged "Sapphire" Jazz is totally besotted, although she beats him up, he even lets her take chews out of his mouth, my boy is a real gentleman.
Carmel and Brian
What fantastic news Carmel and Brian and what a lucky little girl Saphhire is to have found herself a loving home with a big softee brother to play with. Rescue bedlingtons have a very special place here on the blog, and we will look forward to lots of updates and photos. I think we should produce a bedlington calendar next year with just photos of all the blog rescue bedlingtons.

What a lovely girl, I'm sure your Ian must be thrilled to bits. Isn't it good that there are people out there looking for our breed and taking the time to alert the rescue team.

Sally said...

ooh shes lovely - I am feeling rescue broody again at the moment!! I would love to be a fosterer for beddie rescue but not sure if they need anyone at the moment - does anyone have an email contact for them?
