Help Cherai tails save, vaccinate and sterilize pups this Monsoon

We first met Eisha Christmas 2017. She had pups and lived with an adult female Isha. Isha was nervous, Eisha  feral. Over time the 2 have become our regulars, Isha was sterilised but we have been unable to get Eisha done. She had 2 more litters in 2018, one in the monsoon during the flood and she managed to keep hers alive all were adopted. In February this year we took the 3 healthy girls from her winter litter who had begun to wander and were in real danger. Nakhti, Mille and Ellie all have fantastic homes.
 Eisha now has 4 pups on the beach just about  weeks old now (8/6/2019) they are sheltering in a ditch and being helped with covering etc by a kindly nearby restaurant owner. The pups get caught in the snake netting, so I visit daily as I'm honoured to be allowed to handle her babies. We have placed a Barney Bennett there and hope they'll move into it..they are probably using it in the rain already.  
Just next door another friendly girl who we've named Maminka has 2 babies, they are older perhaps almost a month. 
At the moment I'm travelling to the beach daily which costs rupees 150 in fares. We will take the pups when need be but leave them for as long as possible with their mom's at the moment they are too young to be taken.
Daily visits are a must. It's the monsoon and very hard for young pups outside. As soon as they are 6 weeks they'll need the multi vaccine, we've had one possible outbreak this year. The cost is almost rs 400 each and then at 3 months we'll sterilise.

 At base we have 4 pups who are ready for homing , one Rama is due to be sterilised on Monday 10th and has a good home in Allepy. Ronnie has been offered a home too that is 2 hours away we have booked an auto to take him tomorrow. We need to  get them homed before they're too big and to make space for the beach babes. The cost is rs 30 per km for the two it will be over Rs 6000.
 
 Please help if you can. I will update you with progress and withdraw to pay for auto's and medication as we need it. Regular small amounts would be great to keep us going but seriously every little really helps.
 If you cant send cash please consider buying some food on our amazon wish list.. http://amzn.in/5V4Ea3z
Thank you so much for allowing us to do this work.
As i am on my own photos while feeding the girls and keeping them apart, ar not easy to get but when I get them l'll upload them.

Dear Supporters,

This is what you our supporters enabled us to do through the monsoon. Life savers.
This campaign was started in order to fund the vaccinations and sterilizations of 9 pups. A week after it was launched first Ronnie and then each of his siblings contracted a deadly virus that was parvo like. Without the funds from this campaign we would have been unable to get the us immediate treatment. On occasion 6 pups a day had to be transported to hospital for saline drips antibiotics vitamins etc. Additionally the other dogs still had to be fed –walked etc.
The day Rae died, day 6, Ronnie who had been too weak to stand the day before began to drink. Oour days were thus filled with agonizing grief and miraculous recoveries.
Robin, died being unable to swallow as a consequence the vet added medication which I believe saved the others. Little Rain who had always been very weak died of a heart attack without displaying any of the viruses symptoms.
3 died, but 6 lived against the odds. Here are their stories and the stories of the monsoon pups who joined us.


Rio from being covered in scabs and coatless is a healthy, happy hound. He found a home with a family who adore him and had canine company. Living in the country on a farm, he is free but sheltered and loved. His story beats any fairytale ending!  Mr cool has the most comfortable caring home imaginable.




Rosie was one of the last to get sick we thought she had escaped. She contracted the virus after sterilization so had a course of 2 lots of antibiotics. The loving family who adopted her waited for her recovery and Rosie of the pink nosey did not disappoint. She loves everyone and so is loved in return. On arrival at her new home she ran around the house wagging her tail and greeting everyone. She has now made friends with all the neighbours’ children and is happy, respected  and adored. The only girl in the litter is living her dream. Exceptionally loving and caring adopters.


Rocky began by being quite aggressive but by the time he left he was fat fluffy very heavy baby. He has been homed locally the adopter found out about us from Sai’s adopter, Sai was adopted in Feb. Carried away in their arms he is not chained but free to guard and roam and lay in his territory. A fine happy fellow  and his owners phone is full of his pics!!
Rama got a good home with a dog loving family. There was some issue about his being fluffy …she was warned before hand. I need to chase him  up but he will be being cared for.
Ronnie  we failed he was taken by a fire station who said they knew about dogs a vet checked him on arrival ..6 weeks later they wanted to return him. Once I have moved I will visit. I couldn’t  have him back when they decided it wasn’t working.. we are only as good as our weakest link..poor Ronnie.



Pari  A lovely family in Paravur called about Pari, she had wandered into their property. I had to take her straight away she was the size of my hand but obviously not that young and her coat etc..Dr Giresh said ‘we’ll try’….Pari was the naughtiest pup ever making up for lost time…

https://www.facebook.com/cheraitails/videos/3473709282640010/
 She matured thankfully but remained a madam and now lives and rules over Anandhu’s home!!!



Betty  like  Pari was found in Parvur  but was in good condition. She arrived at a time when our family was rapily evolving a lot of comings and goings. She started off being the naughty pup looked after by Rio and co and then instantly adopted the older sister role when Khushi and co joined us..the transformation was natural and instant. We  humans could learn a lot from our fellow animals …they take on roles and work for the best of the community, adapting to their place and purpose …not craving sameness or fearing change. Betty found the best home and has been professionally trained. She is al loving little thing who wants to please! Her adopters have also taken Khushi, now called Bella.

Eisha’s monsoon babies.
I ran into Eisha almost literally along the beach road having not seen her regularly for 2 months. She is fit and able and I provide support in tough times…pregnancy – feeding or when ailing. I had taken her pups in late Jan early Feb..now early June she was heavily pregnant. Monsoon in 2018 she gave birth just before the flood.   As the dogs are territorial they are easy to relocate 2 days later Eisha had given birth. In the flood she had found an elevated partly built deserted building, before that the chosen spot had been beside Eisha hotel in a quiet garden by the well.  This time her territory had moved up the beach  and her chosen spot while quiet and safe enough was exposed to the elements. Of the 4 only one was a male adopted on the sly the day they began to eat on their own, Eisha’s pups are so healthy looking the males are always taken.



Khushi  Eisha’s smallest litter just 4 thankfully. Day 2 they got caught in the snake netting placed along the side of the plot..we were so lucky the pups were born next to Ocean view, a restaurant and homestay who actively help dogs. They called me and I cut khushi and siblings out. It looked like Khushi’s little leg may be scarred she was badly tied up but thankfully there was no damage done. As Eisha is so full of milk I took Khushi first to give Eisha time to reduce supply.



Majama
  Eisha’s baby so special ..sensitive and roud. So proud would not cry. Friendly but careful silly but sensible and so soft and gentle. A real cross in appearance and nature of her parents yowled, pawed and held out her paw like’ the big fella’ her dad  but looked deep into your eyes so loyal and a survivor like her mom. Majama was so, so lucky, she has an amazing home. Loved respected and part of the family. I get emotional just thinking about it.



Santhoshi  the most timid of Eisha’s girls. $ days after I had collected Khushi, I went to collect Majama & Santhoshi. I had seen the 2 with Eisha the night before, they’d moved dangerously close to the road and Eisha was very tense trying to keep them safe from the road and night wandering packs. But only Majama was there and I knew Santhoshi to be the more timid. We continued to look after Eisha and co as the monsoon got harsher she had been lucky with the pups that it had started late. She was still feeding so my suspicions were confirmed she had hidden Santhoshi. Then the miracle..the week I noticed Eisha wasn’t feeding anymore and didn’t dare to imagine what had happened to the pup. Feeding Eisha, Isha and the ‘big fella’  across the road gallops 3 month old Santhoshi so like her mom, there was no question I stood open mouthed. Then I packed away the tiffin picked her up and got into the auto..Eisha ignored me Santhoshi made not a sound and sat calmly on my knee as though she’d done it hundreds of times before….maybe she knew my smell from Eisha. She is now homed by the airport , took an instant like to the lady of the house and has plenty of room to call her own.

Bubble, Bulle (bubble in French), Baburu (bubble in Japanese & Xumbo (Bubble in Somali)
A  lady contacted us for help as she’d been feeding the pups and their mom who at sheltered in the compound of her block of flats. The landlord was throwing them out..as they were girls there were few takers and we got the 4. When they arrived they were young, too young to be separated from mom, but thankfully they all developed healthily- thanks mainly to the patience and support of our government vet.



Bulle  who looked so like a Jack Russell terrier has a home with a very loving family in and outside and is company for a VERY VERY well fed lab.



Baburu  who was the ultimate fluffy, wide  eyed seductress is living with a couple in a farmhouse/homestay, she was adopted as a companion for their dog Danny..who I guess will now hae to compete very hard for any attention.



Xumbo was homed first, locally before sterilization and I still need to arrange it. She is huge and also lives in and out.



Bubble  surprisingly has not been offered a home I am going to begin training her in the new home..I am sure we’ll get her somewhere fitting she is a handsome, happy go lucky lady.



Maise 
I took Maise when she was following her mom into the road she was 7 weeks old then but smaller then Eisha;s who were 14 days younger. .Maise was a crazy energetic pup with a button nose. Into everything jumping on everything and every living being without any thought of the consequences. But then, as the family evolved, younger ones moved in and older out ..Maise took on the Worried mama role. It started to happen when her beloved Lulu Moll moved home,  and my goodness there was never a more caring amazing little mom. The wrinkles on her brow were permanent as she watched the younger ones, so often she’s physically impose herself between players..other times she’d start telling them off with a very concerned high pitched yap.  Essentially she worked as my assistant ensuring smooth inductions into the group for the younger ones..and with the kittens she cleaned them as a mother cat would.
Maise had a hard time after sterilization her wound opened and she had to be restitched it meant she was on antibiotics for over 4 weeks, but she healed and never complained.
A young boy Noel who lives by the Veterinary hospital where the pups are sterilized has adopted her. He always came to meet the dogs was genuinely loving. Maise is in and outside and has Noel to look after …also I can visit when we are sterilizing!!!
A very special little love.












Snowflakes
3 of the tiniest thrown at the side of the road in the heat. 2 pm I was walking Serb found one put her on my shoulder ..then some passers by alerted me to another and later that night a third was dumped at my gate. Their eyes were only just opening, the kitten milk took some sourcing and then the syringe and bottle. I was terrified every 2 hours..One died, if I had been more able I’m sure needn’t have but 2 thankfully have been given a home by a lady who already has her share plus of dogs and cats. One had ears that twitched as she sucked ..the other would hold out her paw for me to hold once she had a good grasp on the teat.



Lulu Moll
A 5 month old female living on her own at the auto stand. I started to feed her and she came in to be sterilized. While here she lived in what later became Melinda’s Barney Bennett on the porch. She did not wander but would not have a lead (ate through 3) eventually she ventured in to the pups..Maise latched on to her and poor Lulu Moll evolved into the most loving tolerant foster mom. Then out of nowhere she was offered a home on a farm MILES away with a lab for company. Thanks to donors she now lives a free but safe and secure life and is loved. Sunil escorted her she was NOT a good traveler!


Our current residents



Polo
The Sunday afternoon when Croa met her forever family a call from the local veterinary hospital to inform me that a pup had been in an accident, her hind leg would have to be amputated. “ of the kindest gents had bought her in and follow her story still. The amputation and healing went perfectly..government vets after a full days work…we are blessed. Polo has 3 legs which is one more then we have and can jump/run/wrestle with the best of them. She is however a handbag dog whose beard needs wiping after a meal and likes nothing more then being my shadow. But those eyes and fluff….she’s beautiful.



Rossi
Rossi was picked out of the traffic and had a sore leg. She too was taken to the Veterinary hospital and we were called. Her leg healed but for a week until Rani arrived little Rossi was alone too small to be introduced to the others Rossi has ears like felt. She is stubborn and shrewd and opts to jump in my lap for protective cuddles when she’s taken things too far. Coffee and cream.




Rani
Rani is Beau’s only surviving pup. I took her at just over 6 weeks she had started to wander and poor Beau who has a hard time living alone without aligning to any pack, was finding it difficult to keep her safe. I took her as she stood beside her mom, Beau let her go without any signs of distress, and Rani settled in quickly with Rossi for company.
Rani is solid she already has a thickening neck glossy ample wiry coat and is well meaty. She is the warrior queen continually without a break while awake tussling for dominance with Bubble and Polo who are both so much bigger then her. She needs her kingdom her domain to rule over and comes to you when she wants to…will not be picked up. Rockweiler blood dominates!
She has been adopted by our official photographer who lives in the city!!! We’ll post her progress!
Was on the way to feed Sapna and Sonny when a pup crossed in front of us..I covered my eyes..the snowflakes were still with me and I wasn’t managing at all.. Kumar, who has slowly fallen for the dogs that he watches me feed, was driving. On the way back I asked him to stop so I could give them some dried food, 2 little fluff balls about 5-6 weeks old, we had seen the mom along the way, she was just about dry. They attacked the dried food, both girls…I sat back in the auto ..Kumar turned off the engine and watched them for 5 minutes, grinning and frowning at the same time… then he turned and said ‘we go shop and get a box’. And so we have Ying and Yang. They may have been killed on the road dies of a disease or ended up breeding regularly themselves. The fact is they were hungry and there are now 2 less breeding females on the beach. Kumar, well that’s a huge part of Tails, watching people recognize the value of life and then well..care and protect it.



Ying  started of being the more active, bolder sister but now is the one who craves human attention more. Fluffy little foxy madam impossible to photograph as she’s either running towards me or on me.



Yang is the explorer, inquisitive and keen to learn. Very responsive already.
Their coats have cleared up well after the 2 weekly injections. Possibly tomorrow 21 Oct we shall get them their 6 week vaccinations.

 

The outsiders
Eisha,  Isha, & the ‘big fella’



 The Big Fella
Loomed while Eisha had the pups, but then would not be left  out any longer. He is such a character..yowls very vocal sits and holds out his paw so most likely another victim of dumping. He now ets me groom him and rub his tummy …stops him stealing the girls food ! Almost certainly Majama’s dad, Ellie’s and Khushi’s each share some of his mannerisms as well as physical traits.



Eisha
Supermom looking great in between litters.

Isha
 Ever loyal to Eisha



Beau
Arrived in our loves during the flood. She lives on the bridge and uses fishing huts as shelter, where she safely had her pups.  We only ever saw one Rani whom I took with Beau’s permission when Rani was 6 weeks old. Once the pups start to wander moms , on their own, not in packs have a very very hard time keeping the pups safe and fed.



Sapna & Sonny
So a friend of a friend who is now a friend was staying…and she met a British couple on the beach. Gail reported that she had found me supporters…then mentioned they wanted me to look after two dogs one a feeding mom..who it turns out has 7 pups…these supporters Tracy and Graham are now remortgaging their home (the last bit is untrue but they have been a great support!!!)
The adults Sonny and Sapna are healthy enough and Sapna has managed to raise 7 pups. their owner refuses support for the pups and does not want us to take them or sterilize and vaccinate them. He is proud and knows no better. I managed to give them all one injection.

The other day he chased me away it was so sad as I had loads for the pups who had come running..Kumar the auto driver had more than words with him, the neighbours said he was a bit off balance. We have to go carefully now, he wont sell the pups but may give them away to someone local we’ll try that.


Melinda
Melinda adopted us. She began to hang around at the gate as we were on her daily route..we groomed her, she had a lot of tics and he started coming at feeding time. She waked with the dogs… herself and Peru don’t really get on but we manage. At first she walked in front wagging her bum and chasing any strays off our patch…our security. The neighbors watch in disbelief but now they all know her name. Soon she ran to greet me any way I came home and was frequently at the gate looking in. In August just before we had the heavy rains, late like last year, Melinda had pups in the dry drain opposite..but the rains came Fast & heavy the pups would only have been 3 days old when they died we never saw them. Melinda grieved She had begun to sit on our step when it rained..now for a good week I sat out with her late at night while she ay her head in my lap and cried softy. For the first 3 days she stayed did not venture anywhere…
Now Melinda comes most nights, she always comes at tea time 3-5 for her grub  and often has breakfast in her Barney Bennett on the step. But she also goes to a hotel, a shop and the restaurant around the corner…I don’t know what to do with us moving…her little life is about perfect now but we are moving. I shall visit every day between 3-4  and see how we go. Although I have space she will be enclosed…and how will she blend in with our 3? I hate leaving her.
Here Bella is trying to ensure Melinda doesn’t  venture in..as it turned out now  Bella goes outside the gate and invades Melinda’s patch

Maminka
Maminka who was dumped pregnant obviously domesticated…had her pups under Ocean Views boat that they use as a seating area in the restaurant. She had 3 pups we believe the male was ‘adopted’ only Maise survived. Maminka was a first time mom and trying to learn how to survive on the beach with other strays. Eisha had hr pups far too close..but amazingly tolerated Maminka while she had the babies. There was a major tussle once as Maminka followed me and Eisha wanted her attention tim


Eisha having to wait while I served the impatient



Maminka with Maise

 Maminka with no street savvy wandered the beach through other dogs territories.  After she and Eisha had finished feeding their pups the territorial dog including Eisha and co increasingly made Maminka unwelcome. I had nowhere to take her too and failed her miserably. When I last saw Maminka she was well but when I returned to the area the next day and since there has been no sign.



Ruby
Ruby wandered into a local home..they called us and Initially wanted her moved. We got the vet nurse to visit and provided food. Very quickly they grew fond of Ruby whom we had vaccinated and sterilized..happy ending.



Blue
Blues story most know. He is fine and happy now and very well respected in his new home. I am waiting for photos.



CROA
Croa who forever wanted a human to love got a whole family who adore her …I still cannot believe the way it happened or that it happened. Her story is as emotional as Lassi come home!

We know every day that Maminka and Ronnie need our assistance and possibly Melinda with the impending move.
 We have also seen Rae, Rain, Robin, a snowflake and Melinda’s newborn die.

So that was our monsoon.

Thank you all.

Peshna

Polo
The Sunday afternoon when Croa met her forever family a call from the local veterinary hospital to inform me that a pup had been in an accident, her hind leg would have to be amputated. “ of the kindest gents had bought her in and follow her story still. The amputation and healing went perfectly..government vets after a full days work…we are blessed. Polo has 3 legs which is one more then we have and can jump/run/wrestle with the best of them. She is however a handbag dog whose beard needs wiping after a meal and likes nothing more then being my shadow. But those eyes and fluff….she’s beautiful.



Rossi
Rossi was picked out of the traffic and had a sore leg. She too was taken to the Veterinary hospital and we were called. Her leg healed but for a week until Rani arrived little Rossi was alone too small to be introduced to the others Rossi has ears like felt. She is stubborn and shrewd and opts to jump in my lap for protective cuddles when she’s taken things too far. Coffee and cream.




Rani
Rani is Beau’s only surviving pup. I took her at just over 6 weeks she had started to wander and poor Beau who has a hard time living alone without aligning to any pack, was finding it difficult to keep her safe. I took her as she stood beside her mom, Beau let her go without any signs of distress, and Rani settled in quickly with Rossi for company.
Rani is solid she already has a thickening neck glossy ample wiry coat and is well meaty. She is the warrior queen continually without a break while awake tussling for dominance with Bubble and Polo who are both so much bigger then her. She needs her kingdom her domain to rule over and comes to you when she wants to…will not be picked up. Rockweiler blood dominates!
She has been adopted by our official photographer who lives in the city!!! We’ll post her progress!
Was on the way to feed Sapna and Sonny when a pup crossed in front of us..I covered my eyes..the snowflakes were still with me and I wasn’t managing at all.. Kumar, who has slowly fallen for the dogs that he watches me feed, was driving. On the way back I asked him to stop so I could give them some dried food, 2 little fluff balls about 5-6 weeks old, we had seen the mom along the way, she was just about dry. They attacked the dried food, both girls…I sat back in the auto ..Kumar turned off the engine and watched them for 5 minutes, grinning and frowning at the same time… then he turned and said ‘we go shop and get a box’. And so we have Ying and Yang. They may have been killed on the road dies of a disease or ended up breeding regularly themselves. The fact is they were hungry and there are now 2 less breeding females on the beach. Kumar, well that’s a huge part of Tails, watching people recognize the value of life and then well..care and protect it.



Ying  started of being the more active, bolder sister but now is the one who craves human attention more. Fluffy little foxy madam impossible to photograph as she’s either running towards me or on me.



Yang is the explorer, inquisitive and keen to learn. Very responsive already.
Their coats have cleared up well after the 2 weekly injections. Possibly tomorrow 21 Oct we shall get them their 6 week vaccinations.

 

The outsiders
Eisha,  Isha, & the ‘big fella’



 The Big Fella
Loomed while Eisha had the pups, but then would not be left  out any longer. He is such a character..yowls very vocal sits and holds out his paw so most likely another victim of dumping. He now ets me groom him and rub his tummy …stops him stealing the girls food ! Almost certainly Majama’s dad, Ellie’s and Khushi’s each share some of his mannerisms as well as physical traits.



Eisha
Supermom looking great in between litters.

Isha
 Ever loyal to Eisha



Beau
Arrived in our loves during the flood. She lives on the bridge and uses fishing huts as shelter, where she safely had her pups.  We only ever saw one Rani whom I took with Beau’s permission when Rani was 6 weeks old. Once the pups start to wander moms , on their own, not in packs have a very very hard time keeping the pups safe and fed.



Sapna & Sonny
So a friend of a friend who is now a friend was staying…and she met a British couple on the beach. Gail reported that she had found me supporters…then mentioned they wanted me to look after two dogs one a feeding mom..who it turns out has 7 pups…these supporters Tracy and Graham are now remortgaging their home (the last bit is untrue but they have been a great support!!!)
The adults Sonny and Sapna are healthy enough and Sapna has managed to raise 7 pups. their owner refuses support for the pups and does not want us to take them or sterilize and vaccinate them. He is proud and knows no better. I managed to give them all one injection.

The other day he chased me away it was so sad as I had loads for the pups who had come running..Kumar the auto driver had more than words with him, the neighbours said he was a bit off balance. We have to go carefully now, he wont sell the pups but may give them away to someone local we’ll try that.


Melinda
Melinda adopted us. She began to hang around at the gate as we were on her daily route..we groomed her, she had a lot of tics and he started coming at feeding time. She waked with the dogs… herself and Peru don’t really get on but we manage. At first she walked in front wagging her bum and chasing any strays off our patch…our security. The neighbors watch in disbelief but now they all know her name. Soon she ran to greet me any way I came home and was frequently at the gate looking in. In August just before we had the heavy rains, late like last year, Melinda had pups in the dry drain opposite..but the rains came Fast & heavy the pups would only have been 3 days old when they died we never saw them. Melinda grieved She had begun to sit on our step when it rained..now for a good week I sat out with her late at night while she ay her head in my lap and cried softy. For the first 3 days she stayed did not venture anywhere…
Now Melinda comes most nights, she always comes at tea time 3-5 for her grub  and often has breakfast in her Barney Bennett on the step. But she also goes to a hotel, a shop and the restaurant around the corner…I don’t know what to do with us moving…her little life is about perfect now but we are moving. I shall visit every day between 3-4  and see how we go. Although I have space she will be enclosed…and how will she blend in with our 3? I hate leaving her.
Here Bella is trying to ensure Melinda doesn’t  venture in..as it turned out now  Bella goes outside the gate and invades Melinda’s patch

Maminka
Maminka who was dumped pregnant obviously domesticated…had her pups under Ocean Views boat that they use as a seating area in the restaurant. She had 3 pups we believe the male was ‘adopted’ only Maise survived. Maminka was a first time mom and trying to learn how to survive on the beach with other strays. Eisha had hr pups far too close..but amazingly tolerated Maminka while she had the babies. There was a major tussle once as Maminka followed me and Eisha wanted her attention tim


Eisha having to wait while I served the impatient



Maminka with Maise

 Maminka with no street savvy wandered the beach through other dogs territories.  After she and Eisha had finished feeding their pups the territorial dog including Eisha and co increasingly made Maminka unwelcome. I had nowhere to take her too and failed her miserably. When I last saw Maminka she was well but when I returned to the area the next day and since there has been no sign.



Ruby
Ruby wandered into a local home..they called us and Initially wanted her moved. We got the vet nurse to visit and provided food. Very quickly they grew fond of Ruby whom we had vaccinated and sterilized..happy ending.



Blue
Blues story most know. He is fine and happy now and very well respected in his new home. I am waiting for photos.



CROA
Croa who forever wanted a human to love got a whole family who adore her …I still cannot believe the way it happened or that it happened. Her story is as emotional as Lassi come home!

We know every day that Maminka and Ronnie need our assistance and possibly Melinda with the impending move.
 We have also seen Rae, Rain, Robin, a snowflake and Melinda’s newborn die.

So that was our monsoon.

Thank you all.

Regards,
Peshna

Dear Supporters,

It has been a very hard 3 days, the sterilisations, Betty, Lulu and Ruby. Ruby had to come on her own she is a large lady. We couldn't get the medication locally either so had tom go to Ernakuam for it at the last minute as a chemist who promised to get it didn't.  As it turned out the meds were rs 60 cheaper there so that paid for the fare as we needed 9. Money we were expecting to be cleared from here hadn't been and the kindest of our supporters lent us 1500 without which nothing could have happened. We got the rest of the medication on credit.The sterilisations started late and I returned with Lulu Moll & Betty while Anandhu waited for Ruby. It turned out that she had been carrying..she would have been out on the road.
I have Lulu Moll here she has been mainly on the balcony this time with babies, so the poor vets stayed till 6.30.
The transport alone to and from the hospital on the hunt for medication and to ernakulam cost 3500 we paid for 1050 worth of meds the rest went on credit.

I have Lulu Moll here she
 has been mainly on the balcony she dosen't like the older dogs but has today made friends with the kindergarten class.
Bella has accelerated her protest at another dog being here and now goes to the toilet inside as part of this. Melinda only comes in in the evening as Lulu Moll is on the balcony and eats through her lead each night. She will be inside tonight though which should make things easier. lulu has been offered a fantastic home with a 2 yr old lab acres of space to roam free she and the lab will tied up in the day when the workers are on the land but not at weekends. It's fine as that's the hot time of the day anyhow when dogs sleep. The delivery will cost 4000 but the adopter is paying 1000.
At the moment both Lulu and Betty have been put on anti biotics as they have mild infections and i wont take any risks so it will be the end of the week when we deliver.https://www.facebook.com/cheraitails/videos/364940770870483/
Majama  in the video link and Khushi are being vaccinated tomorrow.
We also managed to get 3 very young max 30 day old pups...they were going to be thrown on the street we paid for an ad to help the young lady tenant who was looking after them ..but she was in a lat and the landlord had them in a sack to go...She is going to ind adopters etc we are fostering however if here in 2 weeks i will vaccinate and do want them sterilised. This is bubble (white with amazing black spots) and squeak..another is joining them tonight was adopted being returned as female..
So its all go...!!!
