Penny on Hols with Charley xx >>
Posted: 20th July 2014

Hi Ena, Penny is having a great holiday. She has walked miles and absolutely loves running around with Charley.

The weather has been really hot but she is coping with it better than the rest of us. Went to Helmsley yesterday and she had a bit of Dad's crab roll Mmm.

Takes us ages to get anywhere because people keep stopping us to admire her (think this has put cp's nose a little out of joint lol....)

Aw poor Charley she is just as lovely, so so pleased that Penny has settled in so well and obviously gets on great with Charley xx.

Another Penny update, this wee one is doing so well xx

Hello Ena,

Back from holiday in Harrogate. We all had a lovely time though the weather was extremely hot for us all (not a complaint of course).

Just to let you know that Penny was at the Vet's today. She's been spayed and had her teeth scaled and polished. We noticed that she had a wee mark on her left eye, so asked the vet to investigate while she was knocked out. Turns out it was an old ulcer which had heeled. She cleans her eyes with her paws and we think she maybe caught it with her dew claw which was really sharp so the vet has trimmed that as well.

She is currently lying beside me feeling right old sorry for herself, quite rightly so. She managed a little bit scrambled egg which is a good sign.

Take her back to vets on Monday for checkup. I will let you know how she gets on.

She is adorable.

Regards

Margaret x

Scooby update xx >>
Posted: 17th July 2014

Hi Ena & Frank,
I am having a fab time with my new family. I've settled in well, i'm now sitting and waiting when told, although when I'm hyper I don't listen.... We have enjoyed lots of walks, although I was a bad boy on wednesday as I ran after a ball in the park and didn't listen when my name was being shouted, so I'm not allowed off the lead just yet until they get used to me and I am a good boy and do as I'm told, hopefully that'll be soon...
Here is a few pictures of me....
This is me waiting in mummy coming out the kitchen....

Its like live action where's wally haha.

Jack & Mylo xx >>
Posted: 14th July 2014

Hi Ena
Thought you might like a wee update on our boys, Jack and Mylo. Such different dogs but both fabulous.
It's almost two years since we adopted Jack but we feel as if he's always been part of our family. What a lovely and loving boy he is (although he'd win medals for hunting out poo on our walks!)
It's almost a year since we adopted Mylo and it's taken him quite a while to relax into our family but he's just hilarious. There is never a dull moment when he's around and he's even got Jack to come out of his shell.
They chase each other, play tugging games with their towels and toys, and generally fill our home with mayhem and we wouldn't be without them.
I've attached a few photos.
Best wishes
Dawn

Thank you so much for the update on your " Boy's " Dawn really appreciate them and it's so good to see and hear they are so happy xx

Fudge xx >>
Posted: 10th July 2014

This wee lass has so landed on all four paws, Fudge never reached the web site Margaret came up the other day and just totally lost her heart to the wee girl. Fudge has never been on a lead or been in a house so everything is very strange to her. She will need to be treated as if she were a puppy again and take things step at a time.She will get all this with Margaret and Flick xxx

Fudge's first day and night, thank you xx

Hi Ena and Frank,

This is me in my new garden fifty mins after leaving you. Have not
eaten much, and did not go to the loo, but after a long and curious
and couriouser day I slept in my new bed in the bedroom with my
blanket. I was very good and lay wearily all night. Up at eight and
went to the garden and toilet, aren’t I clever!
So much to investigate, I even managed a growl at Sammy starling, but
okay now as so many birds around. The world is a truly wonderful new
experience, so my love and heartfelt thanks for getting me a new life,
see you soon.
Love Fudge Nelson-Greenfields.
Thanks too from my co-owners Margaret and Flick.
PS. We all hope Fern will be placed in a lovely home soon. I am
sending you some photos, one is from the kennels on Tuesday, the other
50 mins after arrival, beside fence and another in my bed 30 mins ago,
and of me exploring my new garden and relaxing in the sun

Milly xx >>
Posted: 10th July 2014

Maureen & Brian came to visit today with Milly their lovely Labrador, what a shame felt sorry for them, the journey that should have taken just over an hour took them 21/2 hours due to all the road closures ect for T in the Park !! However it was lovely to see them and the brought lots of items for the thrift shop in August. Milly is looking great her folks just adore her. xxx
