Since it opened in 1999, hundreds of dogs have passed through the kennels doors and have gone on to wonderful new homes and families. On this page you will see some of those lucky dogs in their forever homes, and hear how they've settled in and how they've enriched their new families' lives.

Posted: 1st July 2008

This is Margaret & George with their two wee Yorkie's the one Margaret is holding was one of our wee souls, who was very very lucky the day this lovely couple visited the kennels. They fell in love with her she was Toots back then and had a really tough time, she was actually found wandering the streets, not a lot going for her and look at her now in a lovely home with another wee Yorkie who loves her.

Henry >>
Posted: 1st July 2008

Hi Ena

Henry is now well settled in. It feels like he has always been here. He was neutered last week and is recovering fine from his operation.

He was a bit unsure when he first arrived and it took him 3 days before he ventured upstairs. He now considers the whole house his domain. He has got on absolutely fine with our cat, Misha, right from the start.He has also met his new extended family and they all love him. We are going for walks three or four times a day and he loves it. I have attached some pictures for you of Henry with Sarah and with my mother and the cat.

He has adopted my daughter, Sarah as his primary carer and sleeps in her bedroom. He has also been for his first grooming session and was a great hit with our grooming lady and also at the vet when he went there.

We are off to the US on the 26th of this month. Henry was booked into some local kennels, but a friend of ours (who has previously owned rough collies) asked if she could look after him for us. We figured that she was a better option so he will be in a proper home for the two weeks while we are away, and will get his regular walks etc.

Hope you are keeping well.

All the best

David, Marlene and Sarah Baird - and Henry, of course!

Mac >>
Posted: 27th June 2008

This is Mac ( used to be Boss)on a camping trip with his mum / dad and wee brother. Aren't they handsome and what a view.

Hi Ena, here is a photo we took on our camping trip, it was taken on a walk up to the queens view point in Aberfoyle. The dogs had a great time running through the trees, Mac loves jumping through long grass. We've still not managed to get a proper photo of the 4 of us sitting with the dogs- they keep moving, it took about 10 atempts to get the photo of the 2 of them on the bench! We will try and pop in sometime and show you some of the other photos and video clips we have. Everything is still going really well, we've had quite a few friends and family visit so they can meet him- he's been really good. We had such a good time camping that we are going again to another site next week!
The 2 dogs are in the garden at the moment playing with a bit of a plant they've broken off, they've got an end each playing tuggy around the garden! It's really funny all the games they seem to have invented to play with each other.
We've had Mac out with the parrot a few time too, he's quite good but it'll be a while until we fully trust either of them- the parrot can be a bit of a trouble maker and tries to go right over to Mac to tease him! We've also caught the parrot throwing food out of his cage to Mac!
I'm thinking about taking Mac to a training class, he's getting quite good at basic obedience but I just want to make sure Mac has the chance to socialise with lots of other dogs at his age. Also, as I was really busy when we first got him I thought it might be a chance for him to bond more with me- he's great with everyone but he is a bit of a Daddy's boy just now. Are there any classes you would recomend in the Dunfermline area?

Also wanted to ask do Rotties have webbed toes? Mac does, we noticed the other week, perhaps it's from another breed in him, I know we were never sure with what else he was crossed with. We've had him in water but he's not tried swimming yet!

Thanks again
Leah, Alan, Dylan, Mac & Coco

Tiffin >>
Posted: 27th June 2008

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww Look at Tiffin now !

Hi Auntie Ena,
Mummy's typing this as I dictate through eyebrow twitches, grunts and paw lifts. (Me and daddy's developed a special dog language so we can talk to each other)
Just wanted to tell you how happy I am in the big smoke (Glasgow!) and having such an amazing time.
I LOVE going to work with mummy and as I'm always very well behaved we go to the park every afternoon for a big run around.
She say's I'm such a friendly wee fellow and it takes her so much longer to get from A to B cos I say hello to EVERYONE!
I have friends in the park too who I meet every night - there's Daisy the Border Terrier puppy and Mickey the 3 legged dog and Snowy the Bichon Frise and Kia the Shih Tszu.
I love my new house though the bed's slightly too big for me to jump up onto at night. I have to really psyche myself up but I always manage in the end cos I just have to be close to mummy and daddy when they're sleeping though I do snore v.v.v. loudly and I take up most of the bed but they love me so much they let me have as much space as I want (spoiled rotten!)
Everyone says I'm looking really great. I've put on weight and my coats looking really lovely. Mummy always makes sure my wrinkles are clean and a dry shampoo/bath when I need it - I HATE having a bath! I'm confident now that I'm used to my routine and happy to show my big personality! Mummy's also bought me lots of lovely things x2 as I have everything at home and in the office too! Daddy would have a fit if he knew how much is spent on me!!
Moving to our new office end of next week. The windows are HUGE! and I'm so excited cos I've been over a few times to visit and I have a great time running up and down watching everyone as they go past! the people I'm watching stop and look at me too because I'm so cute, though they all think I'm a pug. Everyone I speak to say awweee look at that pug! I don't mind pugs but I think I'm much more handsome than a pug!
Since moving here I've been to the beach - Troon's my favourite as there's an ice cream van at one end so I get a wee treat when I've finished walking. People laughed at me the last time cos the ice-cream stuck to those big petted lips of mine and it looked like I had white lipstick on! I'm still scared of the sea - too much water (like a big bath) but I'm being brave and stepping in puddles now!
I have an obsession for laptops at the moment, daddy was playing me movie clips of Griffons on YouTube on Saturday and I sat up on the sofa and watched them with him still not figured out how the Griffons got in the computer.
Anyway time to go to the park.
Thanks again ever so much to you and the girls for looking after me in the kennels it was much appreciated and I've made mummy and daddy such happy parents
xx

Fingal >>
Posted: 15th June 2008

This young man's family were looking for a friend for Oscar their lovely collie / spaniel mix, they adopted from here. His mum called about a border collie we had, but the collie had been rehomed so I told her about this wee !! lad, well he was black and had a wee bit white on his chest. So Janice and her mum came to see him and that was it love at first sight. I just wonder when he will stop growing ha ha.

Ena

I thought you might like to see how 'little' Fingal is getting on. Here are a few photos.

As you can see he's growing into a fine young man. He loves everyone, man and beast. On the down side he's an ace digger ...so few flowers in my garden this year....the veg are not looking to hopeful either! Ah well, there's always next year!

We've been taking him out with the bikes, which he loves, as we can go at his pace.You can really see the hound in him as he lopes along. And he is finally getting up to full speed so Oscar now has to use his collie wiles to catch him. He finds cutting the corner ususally works...in a straight line he has no chance.

I'll keep you posted on his progress.

Thanks

Janice
