The message came in as I was drinking a morning coffee, there is a puppy at our gate!
Just how you want your morning to start. Coffee split on the keyboard and a run to the field at the back of the estate, where sure enough there is a puppy under the gate. Growling, scared and looking a little scruffy he was difficult to approach.
Update: And by day 3 as you can see he is looking much, much happier. And with a new snazzy collar to boot! He’s been to the vet and I am very happy to say that he seems in good health with no major complications. We have decided to name him after the town of Bodmin in Cornwall, and his nickname will be Buddy. Welcome to your new forever home little one.
