Cute Wolf Cub Playing

A video clip from the San Diego zoo. I tried reblogging this from another site but it didn’t work for some reason. Anyway, I found it on YouTube..

Shadow is spending time in the Children’s Zoo nursery while he is completing his quarantine, he’ll then live at Wegeforth Bowl and be a wolf ambassador.

I haven’t been able to get on the local playing fields for the morning dog walk in an age, we’ve had to resort to pounding the pavements. The Finnster doesn’t do mud (just as well because he runs a mile when there’s even the hint of a forthcoming bath) and even manages to step daintily round puddles.

LurcherSOS ~ Saving Our Sighthounds

I received my Friends of LurcherSOS newsletter today. LurcherSOS is a rescue dedicated to Saving Our Sighthounds and does a great job under sometimes very difficult circumstances. They don’t use kennels, the dogs are fostered by volunteers and so are looked after and assessed in a home environment until they go to the their forever homes.

My boy, Finn, was fostered by a lovely lady in Surrey when he was brought over from Ireland. And she makes great coats for those dogs that need a little extra warmth on wintry days Susu Ding’s Divine Designs
