Penny >>
Posted: 21st January 2010

Thanks Katie, Photo's would be lovely as well please if you can manage.


Hi there, we were so lucky to get Penny from you in January 2005, I am aware of the lack of contact to let you know how she is getting on so just wanted to do this now. I know, its a bit late!

Penny is LOVED by everyone and she totally believes that she is human! She works very hard when we have guests, meeting, greeting, cuddling, playing and showing them around. She adores our children, loves us and generally we are very lucky to have her. She is not in love with either of our cats but I am blaming Paddy who we got a couple of months after Penny, he swiped her with his paw and Penny has never forgiven him. Penny is not wild about any dogs either come to think of it, but she does like very large male ones! dislikes small ones of any type!! she isnt horrible just disinterested. You can walk along the pavement and she will totally ignore most dogs.

Our new kitten Pixie, is very interested in Penny but it is not mutual as long as Penny is still getting her love and attention she is fine and of course, she is.

Penny is now 4 1/2 soon to be 5 but is still like a baby at home, loves her walks and chasing any animal that should not be in her garden (sheep, deer, rabbits) but is quite happy to ignore them if they are out of the garden, she is very intelligent and very quick to understand if the odd guest arriving is unsure about her. She almost always wins them over in the end, even those who are not dog lovers.

With best regards and just wanted you to know how things are.
Katie

This is Chico ( now Poppy) getting ready to go home, she has a wee sis waiting at home for her called Daisy who is a lovely wee terrier x girl. You can hardly see Chico in the photo so in future anyone who is rehoming a black dog needs to wear white to set the dog off Haha .

Misty >>
Posted: 9th January 2010

Oh Misty you are a very lucky wee girl, what a wonderful life you have now xx

Dear Ena and Frank

Thought you might like to see the latest photos of Misty enjoying the snow and the log fire - she has her nose right on the hearth. She just adores her walks and now averages about an hour and a half a day. She likes to carry Ron's glove in her mouth on the way home!. She is booked in this coming Monday to be neutered. Ron has said that I've to take her, so that she'll still speak to him afterwards! She has made such a difference to our retirement, and couldn't be more loved.
Hope you are both well.
Kind regards
Christine, Ron and Misty XXX

Suki >>
Posted: 9th January 2010

Hi Suki,

Just a wee note to see how you and your folks are coping with the snow. hope you akll had a lovely christmas and this year is going to be the start of everything good for you.
Tell your folks we loved your card and will treasure it.

Lots of love
Ena and all at Second Chance xxxxxxxxxx


Dear Ena,

Today it is -10 degrees and in the garden there is now over 18 inches of snow. We are snowed in so I can't go shopping in the car ? which I love to do. Kathleen says I'm a shoppaholic and a back seat driver! We only have short walks - it's so cold Brrrr!
We had a lovely Christmas ? lots of people and lots of treats.
The best treat I had was early on Christmas morning when David dropped a large carton of cream out of the fridge. It splattered all over the kitchen floor and the race was on to see who could clean up the quickest - I think I got my fair share, it ways delicious.
Kate and Lesley came down last weekend and brought Sally. We managed to play at the park. Although I'm retired from racing I can still run faster than Sally in short bursts!
I'm really good now and can be trusted to to be let off the lead provided there are no small dogs or cats around. Having the freedom is wonderful.
Lots of love to you and everybody and all the best for 2010.
Suki and folks.

Happy 1st Gotcha Oliver >>
Posted: 9th January 2010

Well its a year today 9th January since " our " Oliver went to stay with Irene & Gavin, They used to come up to the kennels whenever they had a spare minute, and used to say are you going to let Oliver come and stay with us? I really never took it on board for a wee while that they wanted to take our wee lad home and nurture him, in fact Gavin was at the kennels one day and I have since heard Irene was on the phone to him saying " you better not come home without him" he has so landed on all four paws with them, as you will read further on he now gets fed through a tube into his tummy. He is such a wee star he's never ever complained just taken in his stride all that life has flung at him, and it has been a lot for any wee dog to put up with, but he has come through the other side after having three operations in a year, he would put us humans to shame I can tell you. Oliver needed people with love and commitment, but couldn't in his wildest dreams have wished for a better mum & dad and he also has his lovely nana Moira we all love this special wee lad to bits he is a wee star, he winds his way round everyones heart.

Bless you and your folks Oliver you are all very special to us. lots of love.

Granma Ena Grandad Frank & Auntie Mhairi xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx



Dear Ena,

Well, you didn?t think I would let our 1st anniversary of having Oliver go past without marking it did you? And what a year it?s been! Gavin and I are so lucky that you chose us to give Oliver a home. Sometimes we look at him and still can?t believe he'?s ours. Since the day he arrived he has been hell bent on bending (really that means breaking) all the rules. They started as ?

Oliver is not allowed upstairs
Oliver is not allowed up on the furniture
Oliver is not allowed in the bedroom
Oliver will NEVER be allowed onto our bed (I mean, that?s DISGUSTING!)

Take a look at the photos below and you will see that Oliver pretty much curls up wherever he wants. He has ?his seat? on the sofa, he sleeps in our room every night and usually jumps up onto the bed for a cuddle in the morning.

We are so blessed to have him.

Lots of love,

Irene & Gavin xxx

p.s ? message below from Oliver and some pics


Hiya folks,

It?s Oliver here.

Well I really can?t believe it?s been almost a whole year since I went to my forever home. It?s seems like only yesterday that Granma Ena and Auntie Mhairi were pacing about the kennels burping me like a baby! Mind you, I still see them most weeks as they very kindly help out with my care when Mum and Dad are working.

Life has been very eventful this last year. For those of you who keep an eye on the website you'?ll know I?ve not had an easy time of things with my esophagus problem. I?'ve now had 2 operations but (touch wood) I should now been fine. I now get fed via a tube that goes straight into my tummy and oh my goodness, I?ve never felt so full! It?s taken a wee while for us all to get used to feeding me this way. When Mum first took me home from the hospital she felt a little stressed at the thought of having such an enormous responsibility of feeding me and also making sure my wounds were clean but we soon got into the swing of things.

I had a little hiccup after my first op; I accidently chewed my feeding tube. Oops. I didn?t really think it was much of a big deal but when Granma Ena & Grandad Frank bundled me into the car and drove (at speed) to the hospital, I knew all was not entirely well. And when I saw that Dad had met us there, I REALLY knew we were in trouble; I'?ll never forget the look on his face. Anyway, after a 2nd op, the guys at the Royal Dick Small Animal Hospital fixed me. Honestly, I love it there. Everyone is so nice and friendly, not to mention amazing at looking after dogs like me.

I?m feeling much more like myself now and I?m sure I?ll start putting weight back on in no time.

I really have been so very lucky to have had such good care taken of me at 2nd Chance. I wouldn?t be here without them.

Love you all.

Oliver xxx

Gus (was Gumbo) >>
Posted: 6th January 2010

Hi Auntie Ena

Just to let you know I'm getting on fine. As you can see from the
attached pictures, I've made myself quite at home here. I love the
coal fire and my mum and dad keep telling me I'm getting to close and
I'll burn my tail.

Me and Jaq are having fine fun and have been chasing each other
around
in the snow.

I start my Bronze training class on 23rd January, but mum and dad
have
started already - they make me sit, lie down and wait for my dinner.
Its not all bad though because if I'm good and sit or lie down, they
give me a puppy biscuit!

Mum and dad say they will bring me up soon for a visit if that's ok.

See you soon.

Lots of love and licks.

Gus xx

PS Mum says can you maybe forward the pictures to Ian to let him know
how I'm getting on and thank him for my Christmas present.

Hi Gus my you have made yourself at home, love the one with the fire looks so cosy. Ian will be so delighted to see how well you have settled in he always asks about you.
My theory right again, the dogs / puppies that go out and come back always get the best home second time around, same thing has just happened with Katy your pal.

Jazz & Scout >>
Posted: 5th January 2010

Ena and all

Just wanted to wish you a great Christmas and happiness for 2010.
Scout has been rather ill this year with heart problems and then pancreatitis over the last few weeks, Thankfully he is on the mend.
Jazzy Jasper is fabulous. I was watching to see if Gumbo was taken (I really wanted to take him but three is a bit much!) and now I see you have another return. One of the best things I did was take Jazzy. Ok he had a few issues in the beginning and part of me sees why someone returned him because if you don't understand and have never had a rescue dog you may not realise it can take up to 8 months to a year for them to settle. Lots of exercise and love is the key. Thinking of you all loads. Every blessing and keep up the good work.
Susan x


Attached a pic of Jazz and scout on the beach and one that is a pdf of jazz running. I had to scan this one in but it is one of my favourites of Jasper.



Scout is doing very well now and they are both loving the expensive new digestive low fat diet!

best Wishes

happy 2010

Susan x
