A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FOSTER PUP ...... in her own words

Yesterday a puppy came to join the family. We agreed to foster her until a forever home can be found. She was found in a wet and soggy cardboard box in a park in Ovacik. She has been seen by a veterinary surgeon and has been wormed and sprayed for pest infestation. The veterinary surgeon assessed her age as being about 8 weeks old. Here is how she found her first day with us - in her own words........

"I ARRIVED AT MY FOSTER HOME AND I WAS A BIT SCARED
SO I LAID STILL AND WATCHED FOR A WHILE"
"MY FOSTER MUM TOOK ME OUTSIDE TO MEET THE OTHER DOGS
BUT THEY WERE A BIT BIG SO I HUNG ON TO HER APRON STRINGS"


"TYSON WAS HUGE AND HE WANTED TO SMELL MY BOTTOM
I TRIED TO BE BRAVE!"


"I THOUGHT KIZI WOULD WANT TO SMELL ME TOO
SO I ROLLED OVER. I'M GETTING USED TO THIS NOW"


"KIZI TOLD ME SHE HAS HER OWN CAT - SHE SEEMS OK TOO"

"TYSON GAVE ME HIS FAVOURITE TOY - 'YELLOW BOBBLY BALL'. HE ASKED IF I COULD FETCH YET. I TRIED BUT I COULDN'T MAYBE I'M STILL TOO SMALL"

"BUT THEY SAID BECAUSE I HAD TRIED I COULD BE PART OF THEIR GANG
WAHAY! ..... I'M SO EXCITED!"
"WHEN WE WENT INDOORS MUM DIDN'T LIKE ME CHEWING THE EDGE OF THE RUG SO SHE GAVE ME AN OLD SHOE - I LOVE IT!"
"I HAD A GREAT GAME WITH A NEWSPAPER I FOUND ............
................. THEN TRIED TO LOOK MY MOST APPEALING
WHEN I THOUGHT MAYBE I SHOULDN'T HAVE"


"I SHOWED KIZI HOW TO CHEW A SHOE - SHE DIDN'T KNOW!!!"

"I LIKE KIZI .............

................. SHE'S NICE"

"I DINED WITH THE CAT .....................

........................ BUT THEN REALISED I WAS GETTING TIRED...............

................. SO I HAD A POO ON THE RUG ..............



.............. AND WENT TO SLEEP"

  1. Hi there. I spotted you on the new FB page for expat bloggers and thought I'd pop over and say hello and have a look at your blog. I love this post. I'm very into dogs and support a dog rescue group here. This is my 15th year living in Turkey and I still love it.

    You seem to be enjoying your life here. If you're ever over near Milas, let me know and maybe you can call in for a coffee.

    1. Thankyou Skippy for your lovely comments. I am so glad you are enjoying our blog. You sound as though you have your hands full with your lot too. Are all your animals Turkish or did you bring some with you from elsewhere? You'll have to come up to Uzumlu one day and meet our lot. Well done for helping with the animals welfare here. Every little helps.
