Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 318

Today my new family member arrived…. Welcome Rufus!

After a bit of negotiation and all sorts of nail-biting action, he finally boarded the bus in Lithuania that would bring him home to me.

The drivers were a couple of angels who were driving a van all the way to unite ex-rescue pets with their loving furever homes! They even sent me progress pics as they were travelling!

Late in the evening on this Thursday night, the doorbell rang and there he was! Rufus outside with a driver, papers and doggy passport in hand. (the driver, not the dog) and it was time at last!

He did give us a bit of a scare. On his first walk with me he came out of his collar (he was so furry, so I set it too big) and started running around the neighbourhood. This was just after 9pm and I was thinking if the police stops me, how do I explain that I really was walking my dog but the dog escaped. Poor thing was probably so scared, but luckily we could direct him out of the traffic and the driver could help us get him back to safety. Luckily we could adjust his collar, and bring him home!

Be kind. Stay safe.
