A few weeks ago Gerry had a lovely private message from Lisa Mitchell as follows:
"My daughter, Henrietta, is eight years old and shares my love of dogs. When Hope came to you a few months ago I showed my daughter the images and told her what had happened. She took it upon herself to recruit a handful of her classmates during lockdown to save some of their pocket money or earn money through chores so she could help you all out somehow. She knows that after Hope there will be more dogs like her needing help. She's been sending out newsletters to update people and has raised £170."
Yesterday we arranged for Henrietta and her friend Ridge to meet Hope, (now fluffy Flo as the children renamed her!!). They were lovely around her and we could see how proud Lisa was of her daughter. Flo certainly enjoyed all the attention and lapped up the fuss.
Thanks to Lisa for travelling all the way from Swindon to visit.
You have a kind, caring daughter, and everyone at Bristol DAWG would like to say thank you.
Henrietta did tell Gerry that one of her chores was to make her bed every day for 10p - but she hasn't made it since she stopped raising money for Flo, which Gerry thought was funny, sorry Lisa!!
