Kia >>
Posted: 10th January 2009

Hi Liz,
Awe thanks so much for the update on Kia.We would love to see her again sometime. We have been really busy but maybe we can try and get through to your neck of the woods at some point.

Hi everyone at Second Chance,
We have had Kia for 7months now and just thought we'd let you know that she is doing great. She is cheeky & mischevious full of fun at times and we wouldn't be without her. We are also being kept very fit with our long walks. She is still trying to catch the squirrels & rabbits. Thanks again for letting us have her and keep up the great work that you all do over there.
Liz, Robert and Kia


Hi Ena,
Sending you pics which were taken by Daniel this morning after her long walk with poor Robert who as you can see is soaking wet, Daniel and I were going as well but unfortunately Daniel has a bad cold so we stayed in the warm.
The pic taken on the stair is her favourite spot for lying when we are out she can see out the small hall window from up there, the other one is her trying to get in our bedroom and when we are not around and the door is left open we come up to find her nice and cosy on the bed ( fly is'nt she) .
I have to tell you all the admiring looks and the people who talk to us about her is unbelievable, cars even stop to let us cross the road!!
You are welcome to drop in any time you are over this way take care.

Liz Robert and Kia xx

Ebo >>
Posted: 5th January 2009

Ena, Mhairi,
I just wanted to give you both a quick update on Ebo (Steinbeck) to let you know how he is settling. So far he has been an absolute gem. No damage, no soiling (except a quick pee on the first day), hardly any barking and [touch wood] he's sleeping all night. We are giving him colossal walks though and in the 5 days we've had him I think we've clocked up somewhere between 20-25 miles...hehehe I've never looked trimmer :o)

No doubt he's a total 'live wire' but he's nothing but affectionate and full of life. Outside he does pull and although I can control that 90% of the time, Michelle and the girls find it difficult so we are, for the short term at least, getting him in a head collar. That said his control next to the road is impeccable. He's very quickly learnt to sit and wait before crossing and he gets that spot-on 9 times out of 10. He's so intelligent!

With other dogs he's a bit overly frisky but we're teaching him to approach under control, so we get him to sit at first when he comes in contact with another dog, and he's getting pretty good at it. We're desperate to get him running free but not until we can be assured of total recall. At the moment we know that isn't going to happen anywhere like the Rex Park because of all of the other dogs so we are taking him to quieter places so we can teach him to recall on a long lead. He's doing great already but it's such a big step trusting him off the lead...no doubt you can relate to that fear!!

Things he loves so far - cuddles, food, sticks (in fact whole trees; he tried to bring a whole one still planted in the ground the other day :o)), food, frozen puddles, food, pulling games, food, balls, food, digging, food, nosey-ing at people in the town centre, food.

Things he doesn't like so far - metal bridges going over water (?), being refused food, not being able to run, fireworks

Seriously though Ebo is doing fantastically and we're indebted that you have given us the chance to take care of him. True he's a lot of hard work right now, especially when he's out walking, but he's one heck of a fast learner. We absolutely adore him to bits and although I know there's always a bit of a 'honeymoon period' with new dogs, I'm sure already that this is a honeymoon period that is going to last a lifetime.
Speak soon, take care and thanks again.
Love and best wishes
Robert (Michelle, Laura & Katy) xx

Suzy >>
Posted: 5th January 2009

Some of you might remember a wee collie girl ( we named her Misty ) we had who was found wandering in Balbirnie Park, she had been seen for about a week before someone actually managed to catch her.Poor wee lass was in a terrible state matted and starving. However her saviours came along in the form of Margaret & Bill, who already had Jill an older border collie. They came up and sat with her every day until she started to trust them as she did us. Her mum sent us this story and a couple of pics. It is so nice to see her so settled after the trauma she went through. Thanks folks.

Ena,
Sorry the card is late! Anyway, I hope you had a good year and next year will be better in all ways.

Jill is teaching Suzy all her craftiness and they look out for each other in the park. Suzy is now the first to dive into the sea, having been scared at first. I hope the small donation will help.

We will bring Suzy up to see you sometime or pop into see us. Hope you are well!
Margaret, Bill, Suzy & Jill

Hi Ena
Hope you all had a good Christmas and a our best wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2009. Hopefully the pictures are okay, Harry is doing well but getting grey around the eyes, Brodie is always the same full of life and love, of course Toby who is nine and getting grey would rather spend his days by the fire, his mum is still alive at 14 so perhaps we will be lucky and he will also have a long life.
Our love and best wishes to all of you. Hazel

Another day of doing well.... Left her on her own for a wee while last night as Alex and I went to dinner. Amy was downstairs and Griffen upstairs where he usually is. Was away about 2 hours. When we came home all was fine! No mess at all. She was fast asleep on her bed. She hasn't had one accident in the house as she always comes up and stares you in the face when she has to go out and she aways does her business quite quick and can't wait to get back inside. If you haven't figured it out yet, we plan to keep her :)

Alex had part of your email missing so I wasn't able to send you the picture. Will attach to this one. We had a good day at Loch Lomond yesterday although there was a mishap. We are not sure what happened, but Amy bit Griffen on the nose. It scared us all! We think maybe he stepped on her foot by accident. She didn't break the skin, but Griffen gave her a wide berth all day yesterday. Everything had been going so well. The good news is that Griffen is back to being ok with her today. They absolutely wreck the house when they play. Having the hard floors make it sound like a herd of horses.

I am sure Griffen and her are still in the getting to know each other phase, but it looks like it will be a happy ending for all. Can't count the times they have pinched each other's food!

I will continue to keep you up to date. I am also keen to talk more about volunteering my IT and/or business skills.

Speak to you soon!
Teresa

Hi Ena,

Happy New Year, hope you are well.

My mum and I adopted Tess (previously Negra) back in May 08. We were
thinking about dropping in this Sunday (4th Jan) to say hello so you see
how well she is doing.

I've attached a photo of Tess too - I hope you can open it.

Thanks

Katie
