Scruffy >>
Posted: 22nd January 2011

Well I did it, I have found a lovely home with a special wee lady friend, everyone including the humans are very very happy. They even had a note on the door saying welcome home Scruffy how nice was that.I would like to thank everyone who called about me and I hope they will be happy knowing I now have a very special home.


Sometimes words are not enough to express just how humble & lucky I feel getting Scruffy. Please believe me, my dogs are my life & they are my babies. My whole life revolves round them, NO dog will be more loved or cared for than my new wee man. THANK YOU ALL. I intend to try, no not try, going to be some kind of help one way or another to help your brilliant charity.

Regards a happy Irene xx

Love Scruffy xx

Jazz >>
Posted: 18th January 2011

Well this wee man Jazz was only on the web site for a day when he found his forever home, with such a lovely couple, he has settled in a treat so watch out for more updates.

Update 9th Feb:

Itís me Jazz Ė How are you?

Iím still alive & well. Sorry it's been a while since I've been in touch. My Mammy has been very busy with work & spending all her free time with me. She sends her apologises for not getting me to the computer sooner.

Where do I start? A lot has happened in the last 2 weeks.

I have settled in very well. I go to work every day with my Daddy - Andy. I love travelling in the van. I get to see the countryside & when I get bored I just settle down & have a wee sleep.

I have my own new cushion & water bowl at work. I get taken on lovely walks down by the river every day and I get to play ball with all the workers so I get lots of attention.

I have been going to canine capers every Saturday morning Ė itís a doggy obedience class but really itís for humans. Mammy & Daddy learn how to behave with me so that I can understand what they mean & what Iím allowed to do as well as have fun. I like the class cos I get to see lots of other dogs & people but its hard work for Mammy & Daddy Ė they have a lot to learn !! Next week they have to bring my hair brush - fun fun fun !!!

Iím going on a big walk next Sunday to practice walking on the lead & recall so that should be fun Ė hopefully Iíll be able to get off my lead more if it goes well. I was a bit naughty last week - I got excited and took off like a rocket out the front door, straight across the road & barked a lot at the neighbour & his daughter. It was a little silly & my loud barking 'to say hello of course' frightened the little girl a bit. Understandably Mammy & Daddy donít want me to keep doing this in case I get hurt.

I hope you donít mind but my name is Sprocket now Ė I kinda ignored Jazz a lot Ė Mammy chose it cos sheís a big fan of the schnauzer off Fraggle Rock. I do respond a lot more to my new name Ėmaybe because I usually get cuddles, ruffles & treats when they call me & it's not used for telling me off.

Mammy will come to see you soon - she has some money for you (I'm worth every penny, apparently - Ha) Probarbly the next Saturday she is free, maybe the 12th after I have been to pretty paws to get a wash & trim - hopefully it won't take too long but she's not sure if I'll like it. We had a trial run tonight - I had a shower & a blow dry - I liked the shower & managed to stand on my own without being held for a good 5 mins with the hairdryer on me - so things are looking hopeful.

See you all soon & thanks again for looking after me.

Yoshi & Buster >>
Posted: 13th January 2011

This is Susan & Scott with Yoshi & Buster. This lovely couple adopted Rocco a Rottie boy about 11 years ago and sadly Rocco has gone to Rainbow Bridge last year, he had such a wonderful life with this couple who adored him. Susan was just reminding me the other day how hard it was for them back then as we are really careful where all our dogs go but especially Rottie's. However they proved to be such an exceptionally good home that not only has Yoshi gone to stay with them but also wee Buster. We couldn't have asked for a better home for these two wonderful dogs. Susan says did she have a choice EH !! NO. xx

Murphy >>
Posted: 5th January 2011

Hello Ena, Mhairi, and everyone at Second Chance! Hope you had a
great Christmas and New Year! As we welcome 2011 we thought it
was high time we let you know how well Murphy's doing.

He really couldn't be better... he has settled into life here
like he was made for it, and he radiates happiness to everyone he
meets just to make sure they know it. He's funny, super
affectionate and full of personality, and we love him to bits.
He's very, very special indeed. We can't imagine life without
our Murphy-boy. He has a super-special bond with his daddy,
Alec, who he seems to love even more than me - probably because
I'm always around, whereas daddy goes to work and it's very
exciting when he comes home!!

Right now he's in front of the stove with his sister Luna,
enjoying some heat. He spends most afternoons and evenings
moving between the rug in front of the stove, the reception area
(where it's cooler!) and the couch (which, it goes without
saying, is comfy).

I'm attaching some photos of the dogs enjoying the snow. He's
loved the white stuff over the last few weeks, but isn't as keen
on the bitter cold as Luna - he'd prefer to be by the fire, thank

With lots of love from Rebecca (plus slobbers from Murphy and
Luna) xxx

P.S. If you happen to get another setter into the kennels at any
time, please do get in touch with us.

Hi Rebecca how spooky was that getting your e-mail, we were up at Wolf Hill rehoming our two Golden Oldies and Mhairi said had we time we could have visited you !! So pleased to hear that " our " boy and your Luna are doing so well together. Love the pics and by the way watch what you wish for your card is marked for another Setter ha ha x
