Home from hospital

Day16: Home from hospital. Poor Wynny - doesn't she look miserable. I wanted to get her a stuffed toy of her very own to help her recovery, but without exciting her chase instinct towards rabbits etc. I feel pretty sure she won't be tempted by the gormless Floyd to chase flamingos.

During foster care the ex-racer is sterilised, and as for any dog this is painful and frightening. I wanted to get her a soft toy of her own that she could take on to her adoptive home, so I chose one that did not represent a small or fluffy animal, which many people (wrongly) believe will automatically be seen as prey. A flamingo seemed a safe choice.
