Thank You's & Welcoming Roxy.....

Another busy 24 hours for SHAK, starting with another donation of food from my neighbours. The support we get from people locally is always appreciated, and when you open the front door to find bags of food, it really is like Christmas morning.

I managed to have a rare Sunday off yesterday (Thank You Gregg!) so was able to pop down to Seaton Sluice for an Amaretto Coffee. It was great to make some new friends, and to see some I hadn't seen for years...... since right at the start of the road for SHAK the rescue, we've come a long way since then. Derek and Sandra never fail to to surprise me, their dedication and excellent set up is something we are proud to be a part of. Yesterday though, they excelled even their own high standards and raised an incredible £230! Thank you to them both so much, and thank you to everyone who came down. The sunshine even got Tanja off the settee! ha ha.

Today saw another desperately lost soul arrive at SHAK. Roxy is about 16 months and showing clear signs of "fear aggression." When she arrived today she was physically shaking, a sight that for a German Shepherd cross Great Dane (allegedly) was horrific to see. As usual I will try and get some photo's and an update once she is settled. In the meantime, the picture above is the one I was shown when asked to take her. What a beautiful girl.
