Minnie in Sri Lanka!

Sam, a wonderful woman that Muzzle knows, visited Sri Lanka a few years ago and ended up setting up an amazing animal welfare organisation called the Dogstar Foundation - which you can read about here. Dogstar arranges neutering clinics for both stray and pet dogs and cats in Sri Lanka.

Recently, a stray dog had puppies and one of the puppies has been named after me! Another is named after my LRSEC lab pal Wiggle! You can read about them here. Their sister Coco was very sadly killed this week after being hit by a car :-(((

Here's a photo of one of the pups - Sam said that Minnie and Wiggle look so similar they're not sure which this is, but they're very cute either way!

We are so excited that one of the pups has been named after me! Muzzle wishes she had lots of money to give Dogstar, but she doesn't at the moment. She is going to try to think of something to raise a little money for Minnie though. I'll report back soon.

Take a look at Dogstar's blog/site if you have a few minutes, it's truly wonderful what the organisation does.
