Dear Ena & Frank,
I just want to update you on Benji the lurcher/collie. He's now called Indy and he is a joy to have, everyone loves him. He loves his daily walks up Balbirnie meeting all his doggy pals.. He is eating and sleeping really well and is brilliant company, the best dog ever! Here is a few pictures..
Kind Regards
Jean Wood
Thanks so much for the update Jean, he looks like he certainly is enjoying life now.I know Abbie ( Sarah's daughter ) will enjoy seeing them as well as she was very fond of him, she used to sit on his chair with him on her knee lol. xx

Hi Ena

Further to our telephone conversation yesterday, here is a couple of picture of Crocus (now Minx) who we got from you just under 11 years ago, Minx will be 11 in a few weeks.

There are 2 photos of Crocus when we first got her and one how she is today (getting grey like us all!)

Regards

Wendy Ward

Hi Wendy

Love the photo's of your wee lass, thank you. Imagine you adopted her way back on the 15/4/04. She is looking very sweet and obviously loved to bits. xx

Holly & Kimmy xx >>
Posted: 2nd February 2015

Hello Ena and Frank

Been meaning to be in contact ages ago, apologies for the delay.

Kim, (now mostly Kimmy) who fortunately came into our lives during the spring 2014 is the most amazing animal. I love her to bits and is so unique - we have a great connection and I know what she is thinking !. The photos show how Kimmy and Holly (who also came from you over 7 years' ago) love their lives, AKA Teeny and Tiny! They get on good together and although Holly does still ignore Kimmy at times - she would miss her if she wasn't there though!

Kimmy is so, so clever, and has really come out of her shell - her favourite thing to do is to run and run and run, and run !!- she must have been tied up or enclosed all her life. She runs so fast in big circles she falls over her little legs!

I could go on and on about her but will leave that to another day... :)

The only downside to having Kimmy around is that Holly now looks and acts like and older dog - she is getting quite grey around the eyes.

Amy, Rose and Rionagh XXX

Hi guys,

Thank you so so very much for the update on Holly and Kimmy, so pleased Kimmy has settled so very well, remember she was a timid wee girl when she left the kennels to go home with you. Loving the photo's xxx

Ramsey xx >>
Posted: 21st January 2015

Hi Ena , thanks for the clip. What a pair!. Ramsay really likes looking at himself in the mirror. I think he thinks its his pal Alfie. Sorry i missed you this am. Left a message for you.

Had another lovely walk this afternoon down at saughton park. Lots of dogs and even a 15 week cairn terrier called Coran. She is lovely almost like a mini wolf. No problems with any of the dogs we met. He was wanting to chase the birds but im not ready to let him off the lead just yet. Both Alisdair and i wentout for half an hour earlier this afternoon. Ramsay was fast asleep in his bed when we got back and what a welcome we got, You would think we had been gone for a week! He is so good and so loving and we are so lucky to have him. Im sure you will be working your wonders on that lovely poodle. Look forward to seeing her on website after her beauty treatment. Im off to make the dinner now. Ramsay sleeping beside me on couch. Im not interested in making the dinner really . Would prefer just to sit and cuddle in and have my dinner brought to me! ha ha

Love Ann xxx

Ann thank you so much for the update, really pleased for you all xx

 

 

 

Frank and Ena did four home visits yesterday, well she did three and Frank did Lizzie's one on his own.I had already met my mum and dad on Saturday. When mum came today what a welcome she got from me,Ena says it was so lovely to see, as I was so timid when I came in.Alfie has shown me how to chase a ball too, he did the same with Korkie the Yorkie I hear.Well the rest of my life starts here, I just know it's going to be a good one.Love Ramsey xx Think Alfie wanted to come too as he jumped up when I was having my photo taken lol xx

Thanks to everyone who called offering me a home, but as you can see I'm well sorted now xx
