Latest Twilight Pudding News

Welcome Nova

Meet the latest Twilighter ~  What a lovely shepherd cross has just flopped in our front garden! Bless her. Meet Nova. She is 11 ish and has likely spent much, if not all, of her life on the streets of Romania. Losing a leg at some point, and only she will know how, love her. Lucky that Orfée spotted her, she has been on our list a long while, but fostered and saved from euthanasia. She has taken the long journey, and today, the final leg of her relay car journey from so many volunteers, was taken by Miki, her first French doggy delivery. Well done and thank you. Nova decided that she just wanted to lay down and rest. We gave her water and her supper. She just looked up with her beautiful and grateful eyes and then went to sleep, bless. Very welcome precious girl, we have special cuddles to come xxx
