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.

Frodo >>
Posted: 6th February 2006

This is the wee five month old Spaniel boy, who never reached the kennels far less the web site! Used to be Oscar is now Frodo. There are chickens at his new home and he just doesn't know what to make of them. This is him in his new home with his big "sister" Freya, isn't she lovely! I'm sure she won't be long in teaching him the ropes.

P.S. There has been a new photo added, it's of me and my big sister enjoying the view.

Lucy the Dachshund >>
Posted: 6th February 2006

Dear Ena,

We thought we should give you a bit of an update on how Lucy has been doing since she moved in with us. Quite simply she's been a real little star and even people who don't like dogs seem to be totally charmed. Some pictures from Christmas are below...

We've noticed that her character has really started to emerge now that we've got to know one another. Lucy loves being made a fuss of and will come to tell you when she wants attention. Usually she's happiest curled up next to someone which is where she is right now. Sleep and a warm blanket seem to be very important to Lucy since she sleeps a lot of the day. First thing in the morning, Lucy usually needs to be coaxed out for a quick 'relief walk'. Quite often she'll run (yes, run!) back to the stair door so she can get back to bed.

As you probably noticed when she was staying with you, Lucy really loves meeting people, children especially. On the other hand, she's still getting used to other dogs and usually another dog is fair game for barking.

Food in general isn't really a problem now. We've discovered she's got a taste for rawhide chews, pig's ears, filled hooves and cod liver oil. Basically if it looks or smells horrible she'll devour it. She also adores Quorn sausages, sliced ham and pretty much anything we happen to like.

Playing games is also becoming a favourite thing to do. By accident we discovered she loves squeaky toys, though any game with a squeaky toy involves digging holes. She's a bit confused/frustrated she can't get through her blankets! We've learnt how to play fetch (squeaky toys bounce really well) and even tug-o-war games.

House-training has come on a lot, due to regular walks (every 2 or 3 hours) and to help prevent accidents we found an American company who make incontinence pants for dogs (Simple Solutions, you get them from a company called Pet Planet in Livingston). Lucy seems to have no problem with wearing them (I suppose they're nice and warm). We also converted a big camera bag into a 'doggy-bag' for bus journeys, going on longer walks and for getting up and down the stairs. Since it's padded and quite firm, the bag's the ideal thing for her.

At the vet's she's been a little star and does exactly what's required. Our vet is very much a fan and she's now taking medication and supplements to help with her back problem, which is probably arthritis. To get her to take these we've resorted to feeding her sardines since she's still a wee bit picky about actual dog food. Handily Lucy likes the James Wellbeloved dog kibble so we know she's eating everything she needs.

Going out in cars and on buses has dramatically improved. After we first got Lucy, she really hated bus journeys but now she's really quite happy. Car journeys are still a bit hit and miss but she's a lot better than she was a few months ago. We've taken her as far as Glasgow and back. We're hopeful she'll get the idea that going to sleep is the best way to deal with it or that the car isn't a bad thing.

Best wishes and hope things are well with everyone at Second Chance.

Gareth and Susan.

Rosie and Lennox >>
Posted: 31st January 2006

Rosie and Lennox were rehomed together and went to live with their new Dad in Dundee.

Mhairi went to visit them just recently, don't they look good and Lennox obviously adores his dad (they both do), but just the look on his face watching his dad.

Molly and Bailey >>
Posted: 31st January 2006

Hello Ena and Frank

We hope you are all well. Enclosed are some photos of Molly and Bailey taken on Christmas day. As you can see Bailey was most impressed with his new blanket made of paper and was really indignant when we cleared it away and swapped it for his stocking. Molly appears to be saying 'nice pressie Mum, Now how do I get in to it'?
The two dogs are very close and it is hard to believe that they have only been together now for 8 months. Many visitors think they have been together all of their lives.

We hope to get up to see you in the near future.

Yvonne and Andrew

ps Bailey sends his love to Phyllis and Christian.

Hugo >>
Posted: 28th January 2006

Happy happy story today!

This is Hugo who was rehomed from here last year, sadly he turned out to be the dog from hell, Chasing joggers and the last straw was he turned on this wee girl (in picture) his dad phoned asking us for help. But if John and his family couldn't help him we didn't know who could, as John has been around Springers all his life.

Well I went to the gate today and this is who was at the gate Hugo and his family. I was so pleased to see them all and Hugo is now impeccably behaved. This made my day/week/year!

I would like to thank them for taking the time to work through things with their boy, if only every dog had such committed owners.

Ben and Trixie >>
Posted: 28th January 2006

Hi Ena,

Hope you had a good New Year. I met Tam and Trixie yesterday on their walk and I just happened to have my camera so I thought aunty Ena would like a photo of two lovely dogs.

Trixie is doing just fine and is very protective of Tam and his family or "her" family I should say and Ben is his usual wonderful self, making us happy each and every day. It's two years on Tuesday since he came into our lives Ena. Can you believe that? I certainly cant. I'm just telling Ben that and he's looking at me with his head cocked and ears forward if you know what I mean. We're going to the beach tomorrow so he's looking forward to that.Absolutely loves running on the sand and swimmimg as all labs do.

Bye for now
Ben and Angus

Jake >>
Posted: 28th January 2006

This young fella has been in his home for a few years now and is really a part of the family, just like the other happy hounds he has fallen on all four paws. Here's what his "Mum" says:

Jake is fantastic with aaron, aaron loves him to bits, we took jake to the vets and aaron was screaming when the vet touched him. I have enclosed a picture for the happy hounds page.

Mylo >>
Posted: 24th January 2006

Hello Ena,

We are just in from a very muddy walk in East Lothian and thought you would like a Mylo update. Most of the attached photos were taken on the walk and some last night playing with his ball. He is growing fast and developing lots of confidence. He is also perfecting the "cheeky collie grin" which works a treat to woo the ladies when out walking !
Hope to pop over soon to Fife and let Mylo give you one of his "grins"
Cheers
Carol

Sasha >>
Posted: 21st January 2006

Dear Auntie Ena,

Sorry itís taken me so long to let you know how Iím doing, but I have been so busy since I moved in that I just havenít had the time. Iíve already mastered toilet training (that was easy) and Iím just trying to get used to sleeping downstairs on my own. I get lonely sometimes and whine a bit, but Iím getting used to it, and I know that my new doggy mum and dad need some time on their own and I canít be with them all the time. Iíve also got a doggy grandma and a big sister who love me and take me for lots of walks. I went to my grandmaís house today for the first time and played in her back garden which was really good. I can also run around without my lead when we go for walks now, because I know to come back when Iím called, although sometimes I pretend Iím not going back until someone gives me a biscuit!!

My favourite place is on the stairs and I often sit here and watch whatís happening through the banisters.

Hereís a photo of me in my favourite place and also me getting into the Christmas Spirit (I donít know what that means, but I love playing with this hat and often hide it under my bed so they canít take it off me!)

I hope you are all doing well at Second Chance and donít miss me too much Ė if I ever get used to the car (I really donít like going in the car, but Iím practising because Mum and Dad say I can go with them during the day to work if I can go in either the car or the van) Iíll get the family to come back over and say hello.

Lots of love

Sasha

This is Max getting ready to go to his new home with his mum & dad, doesn't he look at home on John's knee, I have phoned about him (as we do) he has made himself right at home.

For the lady who brought him to us, and has phoned a few times to see how he was doing (she was so broken hearted at having to part with him), I hope this helps you.
