After returning from their trip to Gateway Animal Clinic the dogs once again hunkered down together. Hours later, huddled together in the late evening hours of the night the girls welcomed petting from Becca before she head home for the night.
We will continue to take each day one day at a time and look forward to learning more about each of the girls as individuals. Knowing the dogs while they are here and as they transition to their foster provider homes will give us the insight our Dog Adoption Committee members will need as we carefully screen and place the dogs into their forever homes. We are accepting applications for the dogs placement however we will not be processing applications until the dogs are near-ready for adoption. Our volunteers will stay in touch with applicants as we approach the placement date. The puppies, however many are bestowed upon us, will be ready for homes at the start of the new year.
The team did amazingly well with some stand out performances .. Gus Shivnan taking out Gold and being named U19 world champion in the surf race, Jayden Murphy smashed out Gold in the ski race & Oska Smith taking the Gold for the beach sprints! .. George and Jack took home Bronze in the board rescue and Lachie Falloon who co-captained alongside Zoe took out Bronze in the Board Race. Summer Rolston came in 3rd in the Oceanwoman, Jayden Murphy 2nd in the Oceanman. The NZ girls Ocean Relay team came in to take the Bronze, the Boys took out Silver and the mixed team brought home 2nd place! The boys in the beach relay put their pedal to the metal to take home silver too!
Zoe arrived home from that week with 2 weeks prep to go before flying out to U19 World Champs. We are both forever grateful to the hockey team and the fact that the comp was on that week. That helped her turn a massive corner mentally and really really fast.
Zoe has been training very hard in the pool She also manages to fit hockey in as well,, Westlake girls have had some amazing games and such a beautiful team. A lot of happiness comes from the turf for her 59ce067264
