It was sooo lovely to see " our " Shadow and he looks so very well, coat gleaming and so silky soft now, thanks to all the love and care he gets from his mum Jinty. xxx

Rusty x >>
Posted: 21st February 2014

Rusty is already settled in his new home. He was really well behaved in the car and has thoroughly enjoyed meeting the rest of the family ! He had a nice walk with Holly and Alex and then played 'fetch' in the front room. He's even managed a little bit of food.His tail never stops wagging and he sits on everyone's knee. You can already see that he's going to be a fantastic family dog. A great big thanks to you because the beginning of the week was so sad. See you soon when I return the harness. Take care . Hilary x
So pleased he has settled in so well, but we knew he would he is so friendly xx

Hi.. This is poor wee Fraser recovering from operations on both his back knees where the Cruciat ligaments snapped.. It will take about 3 months of care to hopefully get him back to normal.. For the first month he can only get 5 min walks.. And he is on a strict diet.. So the poor we soul doesn't know what's going on.. But it was go for the operation or !! Well we didn't even consider the other... Xx
Eileen & Bob so sorry to hear about wee Fraser, but he couldn't be in better hands,as he'll get all the love and care he needs to recuperate.

Baxter update xx >>
Posted: 19th February 2014

Hi Ena, Frank and all my Friends at Second Chance,

Just a wee update. I’m doing fine and have settled in really well. I play with lots of toys every day and eat everything at mealtimes. Liz has got me a neck torch like Megan’s so I can see where I’m going when we go for a walk in the dark. It’s pretty neat and I look really cool wearing it.

I made friends with Jack and Dexter at the week-end – you remember they were adopted from Second Chance by a nice lady called Liz who is a reporter. She said I’m just her kind of dog and I’m as cute as a button.

Take care and I’ll keep in touch.

Lots of licks

Baxter x

Great news about wee Baxter knew he just needed the right home with people who understand the wee lad thank you. Nice to hear you met up with Jack & Dexter they are lovely boy's too xx.

Just put a photo on from the ones taken when he was here, he has a much more comfy chair now !!!

Lovely Purdy x >>
Posted: 19th February 2014

Dear Ena and Frank
Just thought it was a while since I'd brought you up to date with Purdey, and wanted to tell you she's on great form.
She's very dignified looking these days with her grey muzzle, and with that goes a more relaxed personality now that she really does believe she's in her forever home. She's also got a proper waist line and being a wee bit lighter takes the weight off her one (hind) pre-arthritic leg. The photo was taken on holiday last summer, and you can see she's holding up her paw to ask to have her white bits scratched.
She has some wonderful human friends who love to help with her, though I'm afraid she's shocking with cats, birds and occasionally tradesmen. But when she goes with my neighbour to the local sewing class or the village bingo everyone just loves her to bits.
Or to put all that another way, she's the soul of a staffie in the body of a collie!

I hope you're both well, and the kennels are thriving.
Yours, Marjory MacLean

Marjorie thank you so much for the update on Purdy ( wurdy gurdy gurdy ) sorry thats what we used to call her. So pleased she is doing so well she is looking great.
We are as busy as ever you'll have met Linda's Timmy I expect, he's lovely but was a bit of a handful to start with.
I'll update Purdy on the web site tomorrow and thank you so much once again for the update.
Kind regards
Ena.
Xxxxx for Purdy x

Big licks from Purdey Wurdey, which indeed is sometimes what she gets here as well! I've never known a dog before who laughs using her tail, and gently burps in your face to express her deepest adoration. V v cuddly.
