Ollie >>
Posted: 11th October 2013

Good morning Ena and Frank
Thought I'd send you a few photos! As you can see Ollie has made himself at home and we are amazed at how calm he has been in the house. He is a clever boy and is responding brilliantly to training, only pulling if he sees a dog or bird. Sophie and him are getting on really well and he will accompany her today down to the vets when she gets her lump checked again. Looks like it will have to get removed under a quick anaesthetic as the results have come back inconclusive. Sophie had a mast cell tumour removed a few years ago so we would rather be safe than sorry!
Anyway, Ollie has been an absolute gem and we love him to bits!

Bob a Dog !! >>
Posted: 11th October 2013

Hello Auntie Ena and Uncle Frank its Bob. Just thought I would update you on some pictures of me as its my Birthday at the end of October and I'll be a big 9. Can't believe im 9years old already..WOW!!
Jemma has fostered me completely now since Mummy♥. She said, she now has 3 boys not just Tizer and Rex. Jemz is making me work hard at my jump jumps (agility) which I love. Sometimes I am slightly naughty whilst training and prefer my own courses at times rather than the ones I should be running, but everyone just laughs at me and says I am just adorable..*smiles hugely*. I am training hard for the winter shows but I dont work for free Auntie Ena..you see, Tizer + Rex are toy mad and work for their toys at agility, whilst im not that 'daft' I will only run if I have SAUSAGES. Those are my favourite *yum yum*. I have told the 2 boys they should swap their toys for sausages but they looked at me like I was nuts, on a personal note and keep this to yourself but, those 2 are the crazy ones refusing a sausage for a tennis ball. Do you agree?
Anyways check out the pictures of me and my buds and I hope you enjoy them. There is one of me on my own. One with me and the 2 boys. A picture of me and with Joule (ive been teaching her to toy fight and jump on the sofa and bark at everyone walking past..oops! ) and I have also sent an uodated one of me and the gang. I do have a bag of food to hand in to you for the dogs at the kennels.
Loads of licks..
BOB a DOG xx

Bob how lovely to hear from you and your " siblings " you all look so good and well behaved too. I especially love the photo of you on your own, you look so handsome. Can't believe either its that long ago. Good luck to you all for your "winter athletics " Lots of love xxx

Me and my brothers and sisters are nearly 1 year old.
A lot has happened in my first year. Most recently I broke my leg so I have been housebound for nearly 15 weeks. Luckily my family love me loads and my mum has spent every day loving me and looking after me. I am on the mend now and hope to pop in to show Ena how handsome I am. I hope my brothers and sisters are all happy and it would be lovely if they could send in their pictures.
Love Humphrey xxxx
Humphrey hope you are feeling lots better now, you won't believe it but your brother Alfie came to visit yesterday, you know he was the most greedy one of you all. He lloks great too xxx.

Big Ben. >>
Posted: 8th October 2013

Hi Ena & Frank just a quick one from me (big) Ben! Last week I went on my holidays and had a very exciting time... We were all over the highlands from Argyll to Inverness visiting family (who all just loved me, my head's getting bigger and bigger!) and then over to Uist, phew! I was a very good boy on the ferry over and so here are a few pictures of me enjoying myself on the beautiful Hebridean beaches, so much sea, sky and sand! I loved having a good gallop about playing with seaweed but even better were the sand dunes behind the beach where there were RABBITS GALORE! I wasn't allowed to chase them unfortunately even though I nearly stepped on one at one point - spoil-sports! - but I did insist on putting my nose down every single burrow just in case... Anyway we all had a very good time although I was very happy to be home too after such an exciting week. As you can see I'm still a skinny lad though I love my food and I'm putting a good bit of muscle on from all the walks here, I've got quite a bit of spirit which is shining through now and have a certain sense of humour particularly where my exceptionally long nose and food is involved... very much loved indeed, but then what do you expect I am a rather special chap as you know...
Lots of love from Big Ben x
(and Lucy and Matheu ;)
Ben how wonderful what a lovely update on you and your folks, Frank and myself are so so pleased for you, to think you hadn't lived in a house, didn't know how to walk on a lead, to the life you have now. Your story makes what we do so worthwhile, so next time someone takes a wee dog and brings him back after a few days, and I want to pack it all in. I'll think of you and the many like you to put me back on track. XXXXXFirst pic is of Ben in his new home xx.

Bonnie ( was Beauty ) >>
Posted: 1st October 2013

Hi Ena,

It was really good seeing you again today and of course seeing more dogs as I can't get enough of them!.

As promised I have attached some photos of Beauty (now called Bonny). The latest picture of her is the forth picture (the one with the pink collar). This was taken a few days ago.

She has come a long way since we got her 9 years ago. When we first got her she was terrified of everything cars, people and if she saw you picking up a can of deodorant for example she use to run away to try and hide behind the toilet and cower while wetting herself. She took quite a while to trust people and was really scared when we had visitors. When we had kids she was protective of them when they were a baby. When the baby cried she ran up to the moses basket started to cry too and then ran up to get your attention. She also didn't like people she didn't know holding the baby. When the kids started to crawl Bonny would growl and show her teeth at them. We taught Bonny and the kids at a very young age that if Bonny goes on her bed she is not to be touched as she wants peace and quite. The kids also hardly went up to Bonny to clap her. They basically just ignored eachother. When they did clap her they knew as soon as Bonny growled or showed her teeth they were to back off straight away (of course always with me or David (my husband present)). Now though Bonny is letting the kids clap her without showing any aggression and she is even giving them an occasional lick. She makes me so proud everyday and I am so thankful that you let me adopt her.

Kindest Regards

Isla,

It was good to see you too, you will never know how greatful we are that you happened along. our " Beauty " certainly landed on all four paws that day, thnks for the commitment and love you have shown her. I always remember her as being so scared at the kennels and hiding behind her armchais. Thanks for the photo's she looks lovely. I know she must have been hard work but looks so happy and settled. xx

Wanda & Larry >>
Posted: 29th September 2013

Frank and myself went for a wee run today to catch up with Wanda and Larry who were adopted on the 31st December2011, when they were 14 & 16 years old. We had promised their owner if anything happened to her we would look after them.So one Saturday morning the police arrived at the kennels with them sadly their " mum " had passed away overnight. So we took them in, quite prepared for the fact we might never find a home for them at their age, how wrong we were. They have been living the life of Riley since then.Have such a wonderful home and are so loved, in fact when we dropped by unannounced Larry was tucking into a plate of stew and thoroughly enjoying it he is nearly 18 and is failing a bit now, but Wanda at nearly 16 is still very sprightly. It was lovely to see them all xx

Frank with Wanda / Wanda/ Larry/ Larry again with his adoring mum photo's tell their own story xx xx.

Brodie >>
Posted: 29th September 2013

Hi Ena

Just a quick email to say how well Brodie is getting on and how much we love having him here. He has turned into a very sweet and loving dog who gets on great with his brothers Gus and DJ. He is brilliant around the house and also with other dogs when out for walks. He is off the lead now and running around and making friends with everyone.

I just wanted to thank you for giving us the opportunity to have him in our lives and I've hopefully attached some pics for you to see how happy he is!

Best wishes

Alan and Hazel

Thank you both so very much for the update and photo's of " our boy Brodie " to think he was labeled " aggressive " was beyond our belief !! Anyway thanks to Harry at Kingdon K9 and of course your very good selves who have put the effort / commitment / patience but most of all the love he needed. So pleased that this time I got it right for him !!!

Love the photo's.

Ps: He's getting to be a big lad.

Thank you so very much xx

Penny >>
Posted: 29th September 2013

This wee lass went to stay with her family at the Tiroran House Hotel on the Isle of Mull as a puppy. Can hardly believe she is now 9 years old.What a great " job " she has as the "meeter and greeter" at the hotel, she goes down a storm with everyone, and she loves all the attention. She sent us this update and some photo's love them xxx
I just thought it might be good to let you know that I am well and having a great time, sleeping in this photo, but hey, my days are very busy keeping a check on everyone coming and going at our busy hotel.
Anyway the guests love me, my family love and adore me and I love and adore everyone so its pretty tiring being me.
I am 9 now and find keeping the other animals in check a pretty full on job too, Pixie the fluffy cat is always around which is a bit of a pain and Paddy, well he just does his own thing and pretty well stays out of my way, I really don't care for them coming through to see all the guests though, that’s my place and my space!
Anyway, I am very well, apart from a sore ear which the vet thinks may have to be operated on but we are just going to see how the medication goes and if I stop scratching it, well that will be even better. I have a wonderful life and although I hate not being with all the family, it only really happens when my folks go on holiday, once a year and I get spoilt rotten by my granny in yorkshire. that’s pretty good cos I get to sleep on her bed and be lazy when I feel like it, and pretty well doing what I like which is basically the same as being at home!
I love sausages, they are my favourite food and they always make sure that there is one left for me after breakfast, so I don't bother getting up until around 10am when they are ready. Think I will send you some more pictures if you ask me to.
Lots of love and will write some more soon.
Penny, the very happy border terrier in Mull, thank you for my 2nd chance!
X

I have to go though as I still have some visiting to do, bet me and Charlie will sleep all night no probs, as we've had a right busy day. Love Jet xx

Robbie / Bella/Lady & Russell. >>
Posted: 27th September 2013

Hi Gail,
Thanks for the update on your's and Helen's guys all looking good, would bee nice to see you all sometime. xx
Hi Ena & Frank,
Here is our Robbie. He loves us all to bits and especially Mummy Helen. Harry loves his brother too and they are great pals. Harry has epilepsy so he is on medication and been having at least 2 bad fits a month. It's very scary but our confidence growing in how to handle these awful times. Bella and Jessica are best buddies and play loads but Russell is the one who lies beside her in her bed. Lady (formerly Tanya) is doing well - she is 9 now but so very young at heart. Will pop up and see you all some time. It was just so difficult to come to the Kennels after leaving the 3 of them with you even although it was done through love & adoration for them all. Will miss not having them forever but so very lucky to have three & Helen's two doggies in my life. Jessica is very proud to tell everyone that she has 3 doggies.
Love to you all - on your website nearly every day and love the Happy Hounds section which really reflects the passion, love & devotion you both have for the dogs & also the marvellous support you have behind the scenes.
xxxxx
