We just can’t let him go

Kepler in days gone by tied to a broom bush while I took his photo

Kepler, on a walk in days gone by, tied to a broom bush

The saga of Kepler’s re-adoption continues.

The Veterinary Section of the Social Services phoned me on Wednesday saying they’d received the necessary documentation from Kepler’s new owner to at last transfer him over officially.

I went there this morning, Friday.

The lady in the office suddenly noticed that there was no identification for the new owner attached to the form, even though the form demanded it, and therefore the transfer couldn’t be done.

What was more, the new owner who already has 5 or 6 dogs couldn’t be found on the computer register.

It turned out to be something to do with the computer not recognising second first names.

In the end it was agreed I wouldn’t have to come in again and the office lady would sign on my behalf.

In the meantime, Kepler remains our responsibility (6 months down the line from having handed him over) but if anything were to happen she will bear witness to the situation.

That was the best I was going to get.

      The worst is that I was very fond of Kepler and I have a pang every time I think about him and his endearing ways. It feels like all this bureaucratic complication is rubbing my nose in the sadness of it.

        I’d take him back in a heartbeat but none of the problems would be solved. And if we hadn’t given him back we wouldn’t have replaced him with Galileo!!

        I know it is all for a reason just hope he has a wonderful life
