Bonnie with her mum, looking very happy. Strange thing is her mum asked when she came into the kennels and when I told her she said, oh that was my birthday. So all meant methinks. Bonnie can open doors so I hope she's a good girl and doesnt go opening doors tonight !!! Phoned a wee while ago and she is relaxing on the sofa, Bonnie that is, she looks like she is smiling on one of the pics xx. xx

Couldn't make up my mind which phot so here are both x.

Had visitors this morning Alfie and Neil dropped by to say hello along with their friend Tom. It was so good to see them Alfie looks amazing, Neil looks not too bad as well !!! I just think it is so nice when people take the time out of their busy lives and bring our past residents back to visit. Thanks Neil xx

Ps: Neil came across this photo of you and Alfie out in the lane, the day you adopted him x

Lucy & Bramble >>
Posted: 29th October 2013

Update on Lucy thank you so much for this. xx

Hi Ena, sorry i missed your call, she is being a super girl pleanty of walks 7 in the garden on the leas. had her supper with Bramble & all great.

 

At last finally decided this should be my new home. A lady had called about me and her story was quite sad. She and her husband have Bramble who is a blind Labradoodle boy, whose pal has sadly gone to Rainbow Bridge,and Bramble has been feeling very lost without his pal.So they came to visit yesterday, and me and him had great fun, the fact that i'm blind doesnt matter.( Ena says I remind her of how Blue our Border Collie pup was, no one would ever believe he was blind either) mum says I slept all night, I was so tired. So they came back again today to visit and we had great fun. I think we might be tired again tonight our folks will be hoping so anyway.We get on so very well together so looks like Bramble has a best pal again. This me mum / dad and Bramble. lots of love Lucy xxx.

Ps; I would like to thank the dozens of people who have been in touch offering me a home. Love Lucy xx.

Well Wilson has worked so well with him he is now great around children. No it doesn't stop there !! Then it was Red's turn ( she has just won gold in agility) Then it was wee Brett's turn he broke the mold he's a Patterdale !! Last but by no means least they kinda adopted Star another Border Collie pup, another wee Second Chancer. They also have Faith, Kai and old Buzz he's lovely as are they .all.Not forgetting Axel A credit to Kate and Wilson.

Haven't seen them for a while mmmmmm wonder why !!!

Bruno >>
Posted: 18th October 2013

Update from Bruno xx

Thanks for the update so pleased he has settled so very well xx.

Hi aunty ena and uncle frank. Bruno here. Just a quick update on how I am getting on in my new home with Rena and Elizabeth. I am having a lovely time time here. We have a cat called Giblet and a fish called Pablo. I have three beds in my new house and I can sleep in any one I want, as you know, I am fond of a little nap!!!! Sometimes me and Giblet even sleep in the same bed. The food here is great too, i love my scrambled eggs in the morning for breakfast and i even tried pasta and cheese sauce last night. There is a squirrel in our garden, but I haven’t managed to get close to him yet. In the evening after my little walk we all sit on the sofa and watch tv before bedtime, i like watching animal planet. I have to go back to the vet on friday as i have a sore tooth, but joanne the vet is really nice and she gave me some medicine for it and it’s getting better. my ears and eyes are much better too, and i am a happy little boy. I am so glad you let me go to my new home, the girls really love me and so do all their friends who call me cute!!! Elizabeth has some photos she is going to send you as Rena is not very good with the computer. i had to show her how to do this!!! Lots of love to you and all the other dogs you are looking after. Bye for now,

Bruno. xxxxxxx

 

 

Very happy ending for wee Bruno he now has a new loving home, we are all so very happy for him and so grateul to Rena and Elizabeth for taking him into their home and hearts.

He is going to need lots of TLC which I'm sure he will get in abundance. He is now safe to live out the rest of his life in comfort surrounded by love.

We would like to thank the couple who found him and took the time to make sure he was safe after finding him in such a state.

First photo when I was handed in to the kennels, then one two or three days later, then a couple of me getting ready to go, I feel so so much better now. x My doting new family taking me home xx

Pooch >>
Posted: 18th October 2013

This is me Pooch with my new family, I've met them a few times now, and was really pleased to see them today. I have a wee Cavalier as a sis, Darcy was very quiet when I met her during the week. I'm going to have lots of fun going for walks chasing balls, but I don't think I'll be getting to many squeaky toys, at least not when their trying to watch the tv. !!!! Love Pooch xx.

Update on Pooch !!

Pooch and Darcy chilling out after a nice walk!!! :) Thanks for the update Linda.
