The little pup is dead….
Today we braved the snow and ice and went to feed the dogs…
.Just as we reached the top of our village road there was a Mum dog and two chubby pups following her but they were on the other side of what can be quite a busy road.
I asked Neville to stop and after a tut or two he did. I got out of the car and from the back took a packet of dog biscuits..plus my walking stick..the snow was quite deep and slushy but the stick came in better use to stop the traffic . An old lady with a waving walking stick does make cars stop.
I went across the road and placed the food on the snow and Mum began to eat whilst the pups plonked their fat little bottoms on the snow and watched…
It was sad when we got to the water hole in Draganovo. No dog at all!..I called and called. We hooted the horn and revved the engine….but nothing.
Considering that it has been so cold with the temperature last night at -17, a very heavy frost and there has been lots of snow I am not really surprised that pup has possibly died ….I feel sure that had he been alive he would have appeared…maybe I am wrong!
So Rexy got two lots of food which he thoroughly enjoyed. There are tyre tracks in the snow so someone has been there and maybe fed him..if not then he had a full course today.he is such a lovely dog..I just wish he were mine!
So there we have it…it is sad but in a way i am relieved… because we live so far away it would not always be possible to be there to feed him and then what would I have done in the months ahead…I cannot possibly be responsible for all the stray dogs in the world so maybe in this case the Good Lord made the decision
