Wiggle - Day 495

We're getting ourselves organised for Discover Dogs next month. Looks like we'll now be there on the Sunday, 15th November, as LRSE&C have been offered a stand for the day.

Hopefully we'll have lots of visitors to the stand, keen to know more about rescue Labradors but as with Wiggle, sponsorship is just as important as rehoming.

Many of the dogs that come into LRSE&C's care have health problems and need the support of the charity. Wiggle wouldn't be the fit and healthy dog he is today without their support and each year, the rescue pays thousands of pounds in veterinary bills.

I'm working on some display information showing how Wiggle was 'before' and 'after' and of course he'll be there on the stand, meeting and greeting but to give visitors something to take away, I've ordered some printed postcards:

It's easy to forget how Wiggle looked when he arrived:

But without the support of Labrador Rescue South East & Central, Wiggle wouldn't look like this today:

Wiggle, you are the perfect poster boy for Lab rescue, although it makes me sad to see your "before" picture (with your sad eyes). A big Thank You to all the people who sponsored you & others like you in the rescue program, & especially to Wendy gave you what medicine couldn't - love & hope.
