As you may recall, I announced in January that we were dog ready. Ready to have a dog as part of the family again. We applied to Guide Dogs for the Blind for the opportunity to rehome a dog who had been withdrawn from training.
Six months later, and we’ve been unsuccessful in our attempt. But here’s the thing … we’re not that sad about it. We’re in the middle of a full Summer and we’ve become used to dog-free days out and impromptu nights away from home.
Right now, the reality is that we currently have the best of both worlds, because we are dog sitting a 2-year-old black Labrador for a week. All the joy and none of the 24 hours a day commitment.
And the Guide Dogs’ Rehoming Scheme will still be there …
