Harvey 1 DayIn June 2010 I received a call from a couple of tourists who had found a day old puppy under a bush in the village of Limnes. I agreed to meet them on the premise that I would have to take the puppy to the vets to have it put to sleep, as I could not possibly give 24 hours a day to a puppy, when I had to look after other dogs too. (I don't feel that it is up to tourists to have to go to the vets for such a thing....)
 
When I met Ann and Pete and puppy I was amazed at how 'lively' this little thing was. When I met up with my friend, Becky who was going to accompany me to the vets, she took one look at me and said " I don't know about you, but I can't do it"....I had to agree so made a phone call to a lady who normally hand rears kittens to see if she would agree to rearing the little pup. Thankfully she did and looked after him for the next 6 weeks, then Becky took over until she left for England at the end of July. The puppy then came to HHC.
