wanna hear a story.....


We used to breed whippets [and border terrriers]. Anyway we gave one of our whippies, Fletcher to a guy who just adored him and used him on the rabbits.
Anyway two weeks ago, he went down to do some business with a lady friend about 100 kms away in Ballan. On Saturday 10[days ago]he was in the paddock and he hit the electric fence and ran off.

Much to everyones distress.

He has run off before and we all thought he would try and make it home but its 100 kms and lots of forest and highways. Plus its really cold now at nights and whippies dont have much on them to keep warm.

After numerous calls to pounds, rspca [who were not very pleasant], rangers and councils no one heard anything. After a week we were beginning to give up hope.

Hubby has been quite upset, so on Sunday , Lucy made up a some great flyers and they dropped them off in Daylesford and Castlemaine.

Anyway, Monday we got a phone call from someone who had sighted him in the tip road at Daylesford a few days ago.

Tonight , a lady rang and she patted him Castlemaine, 30kms away. She described his yellow eyes which you couldnt see in the poster.

so we know its him....

C'MON Fletcher, you are nearly home, provided he doesnt run over or shot :(

keeping everything crossed, keep you posted!
