Oscar xx >>
Posted: 26th April 2014

We had a visitor today, " our Oscar " even although he has been out and returned three times, he was still very happy to come in and see us all.So much so he made himdelf at home on the couch lol x

His folks cannot understand why he was returned as they have been working with him for only two weeks and they are totally besotted with him, as are the children and family who vist, and he has three friends to share his home with in the form of cats and they all get on so well together. Just want to thank Gary & Keith for first of all loving our boy and for the patience and umnderstanding and giving him the time he needed to settle in, all he needed was people with commitment, patience and most of all love. xx

This is Bracken the lovely Spaniel we had a few weeks ago, has gone out and settled brilliantly into his new home with Kayleigh the wee lovely wee Westie, it was great to see them of course wee Alfie or "Dancer " as Albert calls him, would have kept him I'm sure xx.

Posted: 22nd April 2014

Hi Ena and Frank
Hope you are both well.
Just thought I'd send you a quick email to let you know how well Gem has settled, she loves the all the cuddles and we love her. She seems to have become quite attached to me... She follows me everywhere to the point that I feel sorry for her because she'll get herself settled then I'll move and she'll come with me!
We'll bring her to visit you once she is confident that this is her home now.
Joanne

Hi Joanne / John,

Hi Ena, Frank and everyone at the kennels,

Hope you are all well. I’m doing fine. Steve took me for my MOT the other day and I’m a healthy and fit wee boy. Christine the vet was fair taken with me and said I was a cheeky wee chap with lots of personality. I was the talk of the waiting room.

Megan and I are spoiled by Liz on a daily basis and we get lots of playtime, walks and cuddles.

That’s all for now as my tea is ready – fresh chicken – yummy!

Lots of love and licks

Wee Baxter

Baxter thanks for the update, so pleased you have found your " forever" home, you sound as though your certainly taking a trick with everyone xx.

Olly liiks great but does cast even though he's a Labradoodle and isn't supposed to !!! Sophie wasnt with them as she's getting a bit older now and would rather have a rest than a walk. xx

Bonny & Hugo xx >>
Posted: 9th April 2014

Hi Ena,

Thought you would like to see this picture of Bonny (on the left) with her brother Hugo. We fostered then adopted Hugo last year. I am so proud of Bonny in this picture because she is not keen on other dogs being in the house and every time Hugo went to cuddle into her Bonny would growl then get up and leave. However, today Hugo was on the couch cuddled into me and my daughter. Bonny decided to jump up and cuddle in too with Hugo actually touching her and she fell asleep like this. It has only taken Bonny 1 year 1 month to do this but I am so proud of her. We ended up fostering Hugo because he was abandoned with his friend in a boarding kennel while their owners went away on holiday. The owners did not come back for them. Hugo’s friend then died while in kennels and Hugo could not cope without his friend by his side. I offered to foster Hugo because I though with him being older (12 years old) he would not pester Bonny to play etc and I did not want him to stay in kennels. We brought him home and all Hugo wanted was a cuddle with Bonny but she just growled and walked away. After months of them ignoring each other Bonny decided to try and play with Hugo but he just looked at her with a look that said I needed a cuddle when I first arrived but you didn’t give me one so I am not playing with you. Bonny has been through so much and I constantly feel proud of every small step she takes. It does take her time but she get there.

Love

Isla x

Isla what a lovely photo, you and your family are just amazing, the love and care you first of all gave Bonny, she wasn't the easiest of dogs. I remember she was so so timid hiding behind her chair at the kennels. Then to take in Hugo at 12 years old ( love the oldies) as I said your stars. xx

Alfie xx >>
Posted: 7th April 2014

Hello Ena,
Hope this finds you,Frank and the dogs in fine fettle.
Alfie is quite settled in now,and getting on fine with Bruce although they still have the occassional "arguement" over toys.Alfie is such a loving dog..he loves getting attention and playing,and he's a lot calmer now he's had " the op".
He's getting better on the lead and we're using both an extendable one,a normal one and the Halti.
Alfie is a bit aggro with other dogs though.He seems to see each new dog as a challenge and if he doesn't get their submission right away, he can get a bit feisty.I guess this will come with time and training.
Since he had "the op", his response to treats and verbal commands has improved, and we're optomistic about the next few weeks and months training.He certainly keeps us on our toes...*:) happy
He's a big daft lad really, and a typical lab.He's funny to watch and good with visitors to the house now too.
I thought we would have received something from the chipping company,so I emailed them.They have got back to me now, wanting to confirm my address and telephone number, which I presume you gave them on the form when I was getting Alfie.I've replied today with this, just to check our details are now registered against Alifies chip.If I have any probs I'll let you know, but I'm sure it's sorted.
How are things at the kennels? Hopefully you've not got too many dogs and the ones you do have are getting lots of visitors.
Our vets in Edinburgh had heard of you when I mentioned the name of the kennels,and thought Alfie was a cracking dog too.( they're huge labrador fans and thought he looked very well looked after and of good working dog heritage)
I've attached a pic or 2 for you.I took some of Alfie and Bruce together which I'll send you next time.
Thanks again for all your help with Alf's and I hope the kennel goes from strength to strength.
I'll be in touch again next month with another Alfie update.
All the best Ena,
Angus,Bronwen,Alfie and Bruce
Thanks Angus for the update on Alfie, glad to hear the big fella is settling in although still a work in progress lol, look forward to future updates. xx

Jinny & Andy visited on Saturday, it's so very nice what they do, on the anniversary of them adopting Mishka they never fail to come along with food and treats for our residents. Managed to get Andy in the photo last time but not this time, he doesn't like getting his pic taken, mind you niether does Jinny but she always obliges. Thank you guys and it was great to see the wee ones. xx
