Hi Ena , it's been a while since we were up at kennels but mum keeps up to date on your website. We are getting on a bit now, we will be thirteen this year not that you would know it if you saw us playing at the beach which is our favourite place. We both keep well although Murphy has a few problems with his back. He had a fall and injured himself but the vet keeps an eye on him. Keep up the good work and we may get up to see you. Attaching a photo which we hope you can see. Love Murphy and Brodie

Bailey & Oscar xx. >>
Posted: 8th June 2014

We had visitors yesterday it was so good to see them all, even though Victoria keeps us updated with photo's and video's of Oscar and Bailey.

When Stetphen and Victori adopted Bailey as a young pup, they didn't have any family. Since Oscar who is now three years old came on the scene you never see one without the other it's so lovely to watch.Bailey also has a great extended family who also all adore him. Can't believe its six years though Bailey xx.

Scruffy xx >>
Posted: 8th June 2014

Well we finally did it !! let Scruffy go to her new home. This was a hard one as we had her a wee while and if truth be told wanted to keep her so sorry folks dragged our heels a wee bit with this wee lass xx.

 

Here is the wee lass with a very happy family, Debi/Kenny and Sam / Leighton. Poor Debi stalked us all week, because we thought Maisie and Scruffy would have been really good together. However she didn't. So we now have two very happy families which is great,.

Thanks Leighton ( young lad ) for the super poster you made for us, we really like it and the cards and flowers / mug.

What some people will do to get a dog hahahaha. Seriously we are so happy for all our dogs that have new adoptive families. xx

Korkie the Yorkie x >>
Posted: 5th June 2014

Korkie loves Doug, he just follows him around. Nearly a year now we've had Korkie and he's a good boy. Still hates big noisy traffic but there's always something with any dog. Like human's no one's perfect. I adore him and despite what he says so does Jim,. I regularly find him cuddled up beside Jim ! He's good with Molly ( grandaughter ) They have a healthy respect for each other. She loves Doug and of course he's just a big softie.

Love to Alfie.

Love Chris and Korkie.

 

Christine thank you so very much for the update on Korkie sounds as though he has it made with you and your family. Love the photo of him with Doug xx

Bonny xx >>
Posted: 3rd June 2014

Hi,
I thought you might like to see some photos of Bonny since she came to live with us. Be warned though there is quite a few so you might get fed up of them all!. I know how much you love dogs though so don't think you will be fed up lol. I will have to send them in more than one email. I also haven't been though all the photos so I will send you more in the future.
Bonny loved the house rabbit in the picture. She use to like the rabbit jumping on her back. The only time she didn't like the rabbit was when he went near Bonny's bed she use to just growl at him.
Looking forward to seeing you again.
Isla xxxx
Hi Isla all the photo's are lovely so picked out a few to share, Bonny is just nothing like the wee timid girl you adopted. You and your family have made her so much part of your family, she was even good when the children came on the scene. Well done and thank you so very much xx,

Rex and the Gang xx >>
Posted: 29th May 2014

Hello there Auntie Ena, its Rex writing for all the rest of the gang too. Hope all is well at the kennels?. We are all doing fine at home. Just wanted to tell you, im now a big boy as I turned 2 years old just there on the 28th of May..Mummy cant believe im 2 already..she keeps saying she remembers very clear seeing me when I was 13 weeks old for the first time while doing the night time checks and falling madly in love with me and then adopting me. Goodness I only had just arrived that Wednesday afternoon and Mummy had chosen me that night. Im a very lucky boy! Im doing extremely well at my jump jumps (agility) and ive even started competing at the agility shows..its very exciting and I just love it to bits..its just great fun. Ive also been learning loads of dance moves and dance tricks which I just love too. My favourite dance tricks are twirls, jumping through mummys legs, jumping onto mums back and reversing upstairs. I practice every day..mum says every time we are learning new moves or doing agility I always have a huge smile on my face, I guess im just a very happy lad:)
The rest of the fur babies are doing well..Tizer just won a 3rd at SKC in agility and mum was very proud as Tizer will be 11 years old in September and is still winning prizes, he always puts his heart and soul into ever run and just wants to please 24/7. As you can imagine for winning a 3rd at his show he got mega spoiled for doing so well. Gayle is doing well too at jump jumps..although this is hers and Jemma's first year competing together..so we will need to see how they do together..finger crossed for the both of them! Wee Bob has gained his weight back and is doing ok..at the moment hes had to stop agility until he gets better as we still dont know what was wrong with him but hes happy and is still cheeky and as usual always getting up to mischief. Jess is doing fabby as well, although the other day she had to get an emergency vet apt as she hurt her dew claw but shes back to normal now. Shes doing amazing at agility as shes now keeping all the poles up unlike before..everyone thinks Jessica is quiet, hmm not when shes at agility shes wild but shes happy and is completely crazy for it..which is good:) ... And Baby Joule is doing well too.
Well Auntie Ena im going to have to dash for now but have attached some updated pics for you to have a look at, hope you enjoy.
Loads of waggy tails and massive dog licks..Rex and the rest of The Gang♡.

Thank your mum so much for the story and love the photo Rex, as I know she's a busy lady. So good to hear how all our past residents are doing and baby Joels of course. Imagine two years already how time fly's. Lots of love Auntie Ena and Uncle Frank xxxxxx

Kim xx >>
Posted: 20th May 2014

Amy and Rose came quite a distance to take me home, they already have Holly, a wee rough coated Jack Russell who they adopted 7 years ago. So once again I will be well loved. Love Kim xx.

Ps: have promised to keep in touch with Frank I really loved him, used to follow him everywhere xx

Update on wee Kim she had a brilliant drive home and has settled in very well, had a very peaceful night. xx

Hi Ena

Here are some photos of Kim and Holly today - she is so loving things!

Amy, Rose and Rionagh

XXX

 

She certainly has made herself at home already so pleased for you all, Holly is looking great can hardly believe it's seven years since you adopted her. thank you girls xxx

Wee update on Kimmy.

 

Hi Ena and Frank

Just a short note to let you know that Kimmy (AKA Kim) is doing so well!

She has met lots of people and takes to most of them, although remains a tad timid with some men to begin with.

She has fitted loads into her first week with us - including beach walk, river walk, trips in the car, working at our new house build site, chasing the hoover, piling all her toys in one place and sleeping on beds!!

Holly still ignores her, but is tolerating her presence. This weekend Holly is staying with her cousin dogs, whilst Kimmy comes camping! I don't think she is ready for a sleepover at her cousins yet.

Will give you another update soon

Amy, Rose and Rionagh

Kimmy and Holly

:))

(Otherwise known as Teenny and Tiny!)

Amy thank you so so much great news she has settled in so well xxx
