Ninja Area volunteer Lincolnshire

Sadly we have to report that Ninja has passed away this week at the young age of 49.  Alison our Lincoln shire Co-ordinator has written a moving tribute to her.

“Julia was one of life’s unsung heroes working tirelessly behind the scenes for Doglost.  She was a modest person, never wanting recognition for the work she did, her one and only aim was to capture the stray dogs and get them safely back home to their owners. Over the years she has passed her knowledge of tracking on to many of us and for that we will be eternally grateful.
Julia always made us laugh and never more so than the day she went out tracking with the tv remote in her pocket instead of her mobile phone.
Life without Julia will never be the same but we will carry on in her honour.
R.I.P Ninja”

Ninja helped with so many dogs here are just a few…

There are too many dogs to mention
Hope and her 7 new born puppies
Kerry and many many more.

    Such sad news. I have known Julia many years as we went to school together. Have some very funny memories! ( not to be published on here lol) We didn’t keep in touch but whenever I saw her in town we always had a chat. A wonderful person with a heart of gold. R.I.P Julia, fly high. XXX

    I love that you guys used the picture that I took of her/us. She was my best friend at school, and we spent a lot of time together out of school, also.
    Rest easy, Julia. 💜

    Well WHY take NINJA?.. I had the pleasure of her help and company whilst catching DORA reunited id number 60167 see what I thought of her!!!.. She was a carbon-copy of myself,ie working on my own, 100% concentration.. no one to ask to shut up,she would check outside before she spoke,and I what i found unbelievable she would only speak if it was really needed,, a quality seldom found. in fact she asked me to shut up a couple of times.. She would often ring me for my opinion on a few dogs the were on her HIT LIST. as mentioned earlier she was and will always be A LEGEND as with the animals she helped every one is different, and in a different situation. JULIA was that bit different but in a superb way..I used to check the FOUND DOGS reports and if NINJA was involved I could rest knowing she would catch it.. KEEP an eye on us from up above, A massive THANK YOU for all the people as well as the animals you have helped Regards to your family, what a loss but thats life…Ray xxx Dedicoat.
