Leo's Diary
24th April 2019

8th May 2019
This afternoon Leo attended Highgate Vets @ Beezon Road in Kendal to give blood to the Pet Blood Bank. He had a full medical and gave a sample of blood for checking before they started.  All was well so he lay on a nice comfy bed and gave his pint.  All finished he had a bandage on his neck, given some food and came home with the others to have more food and rest for the evening.
9th May 2019
Leo was fine this morning and up and about as if nothing had happened yesterday, but what he did will help to save the lives of up to 4 other dogs. Well

done Leo.
10th May 2019
With Leo giving blood on Wednesday we delayed his booster inoculation which was due on the 2nd May until today. This he had done this afternoon in readiness for him going to his new home tomorrow.
11th May 2019
This afternoon Leo's new owners came to complete the adoption paperwork and adopt him.  Once all completed off he went to his new home where we hope he will have a long and happy life.
