Gorgeous Gumbo was dumped on me – almost literally – at the Montaigu market by a lady who begged me to take him. Gumbo belonged to her handicapped sister who lives in a small house without a garden. A great life for a puppy ! I looked at the poor dog emaciated, flea-ridden and frightened (Gumbo, not me !) and how could I refuse? I was rewarded by Gumbo peeing, pooing and puking in the car on the way home but once he realised he had a garden to play in he transformed into a normal seven month dog and ran round happily making friends with all the others. So, with a little education and affection Gumbo will be great I’m sure. Not sure what mix he is but looks to me as if there is a mix of Golden Retriever and Brittany Spaniel……. perhaps ?! He will be neutered, chipped and vaccinated just as soon as I can get to the vet.
