Gentle Joe – The Perfect Gentleman (Oldies Club)

joe-3172009-017 Come on in, the water’s lovely!

joe-3172009-003 This is good fun

31/07/09  Joe has sent us some pictures of him having a paddle!

2/07/09   Joe has decided to write to us himself and show off his new coat.   He says, ” My mum said it’s about time I wrote to thank you all for taking care of me when I had to change homes.  She also said you would like to know how I am getting along in the West Country.    Well, my feet have hardly stood still I’ve been so busy.   We go for lots of little walks up the lane or over the field and I’m allowed off the lead now so I can go faster (see picture).

I’m getting very good at sniffing out fox poo but mum doesn’t seem too pleased I don’t know why!

I’ve met ‘Auntie Jill’ at the vets and she felt me all over and gave me some tasty titbits too, I can’t wait to go back there.  I’ve also started a new career, modelling.  What do you think of my snazzy new coat?  I feel like the bees knees in it.    Mum said my fur is so soft that when it rains I get soaking wet and that’s not good for me.

Mind you it has been so hot recently that I don’t feel very energetic and I certainly shan’t need my coat just yet. Well I must stop now I just have to check that my beds been made so I can have a snooze. Bye for now

Love Joe XX


17/06/09  We’ve received an update on how Joe is doing in his new home:

‘Joe is already a big part of our family. To start with some of my cats who have not lived with dogs before were a bit
spooked but Joe was the perfect gentleman and by Saturday they all had free range and were mixing well.
Joe is exactly what we wanted and has the most fantastic nature despite suffering some discomfort from his arthritis. As Graham said to him “this is your last stop boy, no more house moves.”


These are some photos of Joe relaxing at home. Foggy in the photos is our blind 14 year old cat, two old boys together.

Thanks you so much for looking after Joe and then letting us have the honour of having him in our home.’
Jeanne & Graham

A perfect happy ending for this dear old gent.
