A few months ago I wrote a story about Dudley living at the Holding Base in North Scotland. This week the lorry arrived to take Dudley and some friends to the Sanctuary in Sidmouth.
It is always a difficult time having a last cuddle and waving them on to their new life whether it be a new Guardian home or to the Sanctuary where you know they will be safe, loved and cared for. Waving Dudley goodbye was particularly hard, he had probably been one donkey that had tested my behaviour skills to the limit. But we pushed through and what a character he turned out to be.
