Puglia Pooches | Val’s Diary | Caring for Stray and Abandoned Animals in Puglia

Blog

When we launched our website on 26th January 2008 we were overwhelmed by the response. Our visitors have given us increased confidence to continue with our efforts to take care of the stray and abandoned dogs and cats in our area of Puglia, and to one day achieve our dream of building an animal shelter….

Puppy Bill

Poor Puppy Bill has had trouble standing of late. I thought his poor old back legs could no longer hold him up,but on closer inspection,found he had a swollen,angry looking back paw,almost certainly caused by a grass seed.He had one in his ear this time last year. Never a year goes by when one of…

Help for Puppy Bill

    Please can you help? We are trying to raise the money for a Help’EmUp harness for Puppy Bill,as he keeps slipping down on our tiled floor,as he has become very frail over the last few months,and one of these would be so helpful for him and us. But they are rather expensive, so…

Happy Easter

We would like to wish all our sponsors,donators and friends, a very Happy Easter. We hope you have a great time over the Bank Holiday Weekend (with loads of chocolate) Thank you for your continued support !

Rusty

I was giving Rusty a cuddle yesterday,and discovered he had something growing on his eyelid. Mino took him off to the vets this morning,seems he has a small tumor, which has to come off. The vet seems to think it won’t be malignant, lets hope not, poor boy. Rusty is 13 now and a very…

Goodbye Nana

It was as I feared and Nana was put to sleep last week,he was getting no better,poor old boy. As always it was a very hard decsion to make,but we have to put the dog first. After all the losses we have had over the years,it never gets any easier. Not a good start to…

Nipper

Little Nipper has had a honking cough for sometime now,all sorts of things have been tried to get rid of it,but to no avail. It got so bad a few days back,Mino took him off to the vets again. This time he had an xray,and it turns out he has a collapsed trachea. He has…

The Vets Visit

Our Vet arrived bright and early on Saturday morning,she recieved a very warm welcome from all of the dogs,and one of the cats ,Nico,who had to keep getting in on the act ! The first to be examined was Janey,she thinks Janey’s turn was due to collic. Apparently when a dog gets collic,they produce gas,which…

Janey and Puppy Bill

Last night just after midnight,Janey had some sort of seizure,it was not an epileptic one as there was no involuntary movement,but she was very wobbly ,not being able to stand up properly,we settled her down on her bed,and all she could do was wag her tail when we said her name.After around twenty to thirty…
