Wee Murphy the Jackadoodle >>
Posted: 16th February 2012

Hi Sue, Thank you so much for the updates, sounds though the wee fella has settled in well xx



Hello Ena - just a quick email to let you know we are all getting on fine and Murphy is settling in
very well. He is certainly quite a character - mostly in a good way!! He has obviously been used
to having a bed as he has taken very well to the bed you gave us and finds it very cosy -not to say
he doesn't take the opportunity of trying to sneak on to the bed or chair, usually very quietly and
unobtrusively. We have discovered he is not a morning dog and quite likes a long lie - just raises
a bleary eye when I get up at about 7. However, once he is up is keen to be on the go. Loves
playing with his toys and will spend hours and hours running after a toy, bringing it back and
dropping it for it to be thrown again - just doesn't know when to give up! Someone has obviously
put a lot of effort in training him. He is very good at sitting, lying down and staying/not
touching (in the house at least), and when out on a walk when we come to a road if you say 'wait'
he will sit down until told to walk on.

I have been off on annual leave this week and so we have been out and about to various places to
see how he is - travels very well in the car - just stays on the back seat (probably helped by the
fact that our car has an armrest between the front seats, which is usually in its upright position,
and this stops him from trying to sneak though too easily). We have left him on his own in the car
for short spells too, and he seems fine and is still on the back seat when we get back. He's been
fine with other dogs we've met when out and people. He's been out in the garden a good few times
too of course, but always supervised - we usually play for a bit and then pretend to be 'busy' to
see what he does on his own and as yet no problems.

Regards

Sue

Murphy >>
Posted: 11th February 2012

This is Murphy a wee lad who chose his family all by himself, he used to
bark at everyone but never ever growled or barked at Jim or Sue and no
one could change his mind no matter how many people offered him a home,
so it was just as well Sue and Jim loved him too. xxx

Posted: 11th February 2012

Hey, it's jen and Grant, just thought we would give you an update on Holly. She is doing great, we have discovered that she is wonderful at opening doors, and she is eating all of her biscuits now that have softened the. Thanks again for giving us a wonderful new addition to our family.

ENA: Jen and Grant, thank you so much! As you know, this dog was previously only out for 48hrs, before she was brought back for growling at the other dog in the house. Now she stays with you, Grant, Ivan and two cats, and is doing brilliantly. Thank you so much xx

Aww how cute are they, they have all settled in so well thanks to yours and Jacks commitment and patience xx
**************
An after tea, after hide chew session - partly tired, partly in the huff because they have had the hide chews removed after the 15 minute session. They think they can keep going without any ill-effects. We don't!

Happy!

Nipper >>
Posted: 30th January 2012

Dear Ena,
Just to let you, and his previous owner, know that Nipper is settling in
nicely here, and we are very happy together. He is getting
lots of long walks, and is eating happily. I have not yet tried letting him
off his lead, but he has a very long extending lead and he is quite happy
roaming around on that. He also gets lots of runs in the garden. He would
very much like to play with some of our squirrels, but they keep running
away from him. My children are thrilled with him, and he has been brilliant
with them, and with my neighbours' children who have also enjoyed playing
with him. I have attached some photos for you.

Many thanks for a sweet natured, well-behaved wee dog.

********

Brilliant update Kay thank you so much, so pleased he has settled in so very well

Posted: 27th January 2012

Hi both. Small dog feeling better each day. Keira next door tried as usual to eat the postman so that alerted everyone that he was due. They were so disappointed when he didn't come to us that Jack went out and posted a newspaper. Usual chaos and now everybody has settled down happily again. Take care! Us x

Lorraine how cute and don't they look well, especially wee Susie ( Frank's girl )
