Our Magnificent 7 ...and we chose no 7 which one deserves this special feature...they all do. An impossible task but I come down on Jethro's side
Jethro is a wonderful dog who never puts a foot wrong and everyone adores this boy. His only issue is when leaving the kennels he is a steam train and different people will have different preferred way to control his energy. If you ask my honest opinion I could see Jethro as an off lead dog so all that energy is dissipated early into his walk. Perhaps the best way to recommend his future family management is to have Jethro jump into the car then release him where he can run on a trailing line and dog encounters are managed with the scope of him having expended some of his effervescence
Jethro has good people skills and good dog skills he just needs the chance from a large dog family who want to work with him to offer him the stability he needs. July 2014 so Jethro has already spent 2 winters in kennels and is just gearing up to the next: Pray not. Jethro joined us when we had 3 very similar dogs Buster and Azure and Georgi. They have been homed wonderfully...and now a derth of homes willing to take on a large boy with a huge heart...well we are so hoping.

"On Saturday's a little girl with disabilities comes out with her Dad and watches the comings and goings along the river. This Saturday her Dad told me that she mainly comes to meet our dogs. She's met Suede, Stanley, Percy, well most of the dogs at Guildford, but yesterday she met Jethro :biggrin.gif:
Jethro loves to jump up and have full body cuddles but he didn't lift a paw off the floor with the little girl and her Dad, he's such a gentle boy."

Comment: Fabulous week on homings with such wonderful families stepping up to the plate for our beloved dogs.
Shocking week ref the health of 2 of our dogs Roxy & Poppet. Our thanks to our wonderful vets. Both have pulled through and slowly but surely they are both on the up with Special thanks to SarahK and her family.
Our gratitude to Kerry, Kashers for organising a fund raising initiative towards their vets bills Amazing £1.470 so far I'm bowled over in gratitude thank you everyone. I haven't asked how much the bills are yet: I just know our vets are so kind to us, both dogs are in safe hands and we're not out of the woods yet. ... erryAshley

Comment: Happiness is Pair-shaped! Our week started on Monday with Buster & Patch capturing their owners hearts..and on Saturday Poppy & Bruce met their family too. We are all chuffed with Merlin finding his family after 15 months in kennels. Really lovely families, as always, came to take away our dogs and our cares. Our kennel use is 59 tonight but with some temp foster dogs due back in. We have 4 Welsh dogs coming in tomorrow ...why I mention this is we now need to begin to think about getting our numbers down for Christmas as boarding kennel owners like kennels back for boarders. So onwards and upwards and may we have a very positive week ahead. Every week we are delighted as changes occur Nancy offered foster until the New Year by Tufty and Rolo Sasha & Martyn offered to support his knee operation ( cruciates ) which we are just organising.

Thanks to all our volunteers for offering everything you give to our dogs and in many case really putting yourselves out for their needs.

Comment: Dog rescuing is tough and involves anguish; impossible odds and pushing to get stretch out of a stone. Dog ownership in my view is a privilege; pleasure and incredible honour. Because dogs need Commitment; Responsible care regime and a family centred around their welfare needs, we see how vulnerable they are and 'haunted' as they get swept up on to our beach. Love wins through and the joy must be there within the fantastic bond shared with our pets.

Dog Rescuers are forever needy, and need people willing to offer and share the load. Please always remember we carry a huge load and we need help; dont ever assume we dont. Stepping forwards to reach out to a homeless dog is a special gift to give. You may not be able to help a refugee but perhaps you can help a best friend in need of love or a Rescue who needs money to care for dogs, needing vet care and shelter whilst we prepare them for new stable and capable homes. We so want our dogs out of winter kennels: Please spread the word and hopefully someone will decide they do want to share their lives with a dog after all or maybe just their week's holiday!

Thank you to each and every volunteer who stepped up to the plate and offered to our dogs this week. We all appreciate each others contribution and our dogs are the benefactors.

Incredible pressure with so many dogs knocking on our door at the moment...lets all heave hoe, and take wonderful pictures to promote and share our dogs...and get them settled into homes for Christmas

Comment: When volunteer walkers have completed their induction training course within kennels, they get to place their name down on a walkers planning sheets for days they will come to the kennels. They either chose dogs they intend to walk or are allocated dogs by a kennel co-ordinator. Once they have completed their walks they text in and their walks are recorded against the dog. This way we can ensure as many dogs get beyond their kennel walls and no walker ever attends the kennels to find no dogs to walk; or re-walk dogs, or the dogs they can walk have already been walked and it becomes a wasted journey. This weeks walking record below shows the sterling efforts involved.
f for foster sw for short walk; d for day out.
Broxbourne we have fewer walkers and try as we do, very often the walkers do not record their walks. Each walk is down to volunteers travelling to our kennels whatever the weather and supporting our dogs to enjoy company and explore the countryside and continue to build social skills despite their impoverished backgrounds. Well done each and everyone this is a 'thank you' and a reminder to everyone of what a wonderful Rescue Team we are! 234 recorded walks plus long walks during days out, and foster breaks for our kennelled dogs: Isn't it fantastic

I just wanted people to see how our dogs move/ our cogs move! With such sacrifice and effort from our volunteers for the betterment for our dogs welfare and well being. People who arrive to home our dogs don't always understand our model of Rescue. We are NOT a Rescue centre model with paid staff. They assume we live and are employed at the kennels. They assume our dogs are walked maybe 2x a day and life is all signing all dancing. The stark reality of kennel life doesn't register. Volunteers encounter such enthusiasm as they enter their kennels with their lead and harness in hand. They feel our dogs plight in their gut: Kennels are prison to our dogs and you see them beeline for grass to roll on their back in sheer joy. It isn't just exercise our dogs need: It's affirmation; touch; social encounter, sniffs, to rest their ears from barking environment, and ability to mark their territory ++. Our dogs are ever on our minds and if we get a chance to visit the kennels for an extra afternoon we do, our walkers are always fitting in an extra walk at the end of their visit. Some volunteers commit 2 afternoons a week religiously, come what may, others come and take a dog out for the day; others fit a dog walk in on their way home from work or their lunch hour. There is a lovely social feel amongst our walkers who have doggie chatter as they walk together or meet whilst returning dogs to their kennels. The kennel staff and often kennel owners are part of the team and love to see our dogs go for walks and there is an exchange of info.

This week we have had 5 near misses with homings which take their toll on us but hopefully not on the dogs. Never a dull moment in the homings team. Next week offers promise and hopefully our special girls and boys will find love within their new families.

Comment: Blistering week very long hours on the M25 ...amazing achievements for those who were saved and those who were homed and those who have been supported in illness and great need. Thank you everyone.

All our thanks goes to Dianna who does the hardest role in the rescue An amazing job to instil realism, to peel back the romantic illusions, and secure stable, responsible and honest homes for our very needy dogs.

I will do the November diary just haven't had a moment

Comment: November was a whirl wind of a month with a record intake of 36 dogs...and 27 dogs homed by us and one by their owner. We are grateful for the overwhelming volunteer dedication and activity which not only facilitated that all happening but supported all our homeless dogs who were waiting in the meantime. Lovely to meet families coming back for another one of our dogs and so many new families feeling their way to trust us in matching them as best we can. Dogs are not fully predicable and sometimes our dogs just don't settle. We always are there to receive our dogs back and our backup is what so many families value as they walk into the sunset knowing we are behind them with whatever life throws their way.
