Happy Endings - January 2022
POSIE WAS BEAN
I just wanted to tell you about Posies (Was Bean) happy ending!
We adopted Posie (MT Bean) at the end of November. We drove all the way from Kent to get our special little friend. Since then, we have had a ball! She is loving her country lifestyle and enjoys her training. She is best friends with our cat, Penelope and she has regular visits from our MT collie cross Joey (Hurry) who lives with my parents - they love to get muddy together!!
Thank you Many Tears!
BUMBLE BEE WAS INK
In Early 2020, we were lucky enough to be chosen as Ink’s new Family We seen little Ink on your website and fell in love immediately. Following a visit, we knew she was right to join our family. We were so excited to give this little girl her forever home. It is now over a year on, and she has with out a doubt grown and become an invaluable member of our pack. We named her Bumble Bee, as she has the energy of a Bee, always non stop and enjoys every moment of the day. Please see photos below of her happy time with us.
Thank you and for ever grateful
Richard, Marie and Garin Thomas
NESSA WAS COPY
Just to update you We collected Nessa (Copy ) from you in November. After the initial overwhelming few days, we discovered a very bright, inquisitive eager to engage puppy highly motivated by treats. Very impressed she slept through the nights after only a week. I can't say I missed standing in the garden in the early hours in the cold and rain as she blended into the shadows. It's took a little while for Willow our very timid rescue cocker to accept a bouncing leggy puppy.You can imagine our delight when we found them snuggled up together. Nessa has certainly benefitted from Willows company Nessa enjoys Puppy Day School one morning a week playing and socialising with 5 other puppies and will continue until 20 weeks old plus puppy classes one evening a week for the next 8 weeks . We are just curious to see how tall she will be.
DAISY MAY WAS DAPPA
Just wanted to let you know how we are getting on.
Dappa is now Daisy May be good but may be bad! She settled in quickly and makes friends with every dog we meet. She learnt recall very quickly but does go deaf if she has a scent to follow. She has a great time playing with other dogs but has a special friend called Rosie who is as mad as herself. She is at present trying to dig for rats in a field but has also used her digging skills to bury bones around the garden and help me getting holes ready for plants. She is very loving and wants to help with everything I do and I’m so pleased to be her owner.
HAMILTON WAS CAMPBELL
It is now a year ago since we adopted Campbell who is now going under the name Hamilton.
For being a dog that had always lived in kennels he took to being a pet indoors as duck to water. To start off he spent a lot of time hiding in his cage and figuring out who the dog in the mirror was as well as how doors worked. However, it was only a week or so until he found out how comfortable the sofa could be and that he did not need to get exited every time he saw another dog, leaf, bird or any kind of rubbish drifting over the road in the wind.
My older dog Bailey was not as enthusiastic about getting to know Hamilton as Hamilton was to get to know Bailey but they are now happy to curl up on our bed when home on their own.
Hamilton is still changing and learning, he follows me around like a shadow, he can walk without a lead if I have enough treats in my pocket to come back for and he sleeps in his bed beside mine.
We are so happy to have Hamilton in our lives and we look forward to many more years together with him.
Here they are, Bailey on the left and Hamilton on the right.
NORRIS WAS STAR
Happy New Year! Thought you might like to see how the adorable Star is getting on.
Star is now called Norris (after Lando Norris the racing driver).
A year ago we lost our beloved schnauzer to a splenic tumour. Our other schnauzer, Ralf, really missed the company of another dog but we weren’t quite ready to move on. Just before Christmas we saw Norris (Star) on Many Tears and decided to apply. Having been initially told that someone had beaten us to him, we were absolutely delighted to get a phone call whilst driving home from visiting family, telling us that we were now top of the list. After a frantic run round to the vets to get the documentation sorted and a home check done, we were back on our way to Bristol to collect him. Just over 2 weeks on and he has settled in so well! He is not phased by the cats at all (even though they’re bigger than him!) and Ralfy has accepted him and the bond is developing. Norris is absolutely gorgeous and a proper little character. When he’s not sleeping, he’s racing round the lounge after Ralf or chewing anything he can get his teeth into. The best Christmas present ever!
Thank you so much for allowing Norris into our lives ????
Best wishes for the New Year.

ROBYN WAS CAIN
We collected Robyn 2 weeks ago. She has fitted in really well. Robyn sleeps with Mitzi on their bed and Dali is her play buddy. Robyn has been fantastic with toilet training and learning to sit - small biscuits are a wonderful encouragement. She was meant to be here.

Double trouble mother and daughter Gladys (red collar) and Patty (pink collar)
Sherry was Cherry had a write up of giving up the will to live by your vet, so a donation was asked in place of an adoption fee. Within 24hrs of having sherry home I recognised the symptoms of an infection our previous dog had had, a trip to the vet confirmed a severe case of ecoli. Within 24hrs of taking antibiotics Sherry was a completely different dog... That was 3 years ago and she is now 12 years old!
ROSIE BANKS WAS VIKKI
Just thought I'd send you all a big thank you for letting us adopt Rosie(was Vikki) whom you rescued from Ireland as a 9 month old in 2009. She turns 13 today and has been the most wonderful girl and a huge part of our family. She has 'put up with' quite a few new dogs in her life(we rehome elderly and abused dogs) and lost her brother Matty(adopted from you at the same time) 3 years ago. We love her to bits . Thank you again for giving her to us.

NOODLES (NOO NOO) WAS SATURDAY
This bundle of joy joined our family back in July and what a huge character she is. Noodles is a fun loving pup who wants to be everyone’s friend. We take ages walking on the beach as she has to meet everyone and roll over and have a tummy rub. It feels like she is getting bigger and hairier every day. She is a real dirt magnet and loves to run and jump in puddles and digging in the children’s sandpit and sometimes the garden. She has attended puppy school back in Autumn and has another class starting soon. Noodles and my daughter won 2nd for young handler in their first fun dog show. We are currently going through the dinosaur stage, and she has selected hearing at time. She is such a toilet roll thief, and you can’t leave the door open for a second as any opportunity she is there. She loves to be groomed daily and all the family help. She adores the children, and they love her. She makes us all laugh on a daily basis. She is definitely one in a million and we are very fortunate to have her join our family.
Warmest wishes Paula and family xx
An update on Bert the beagle since we got him in Sept 2021. He is still called Bert and now respond to various commands (with a little associated reward) generally obedient too and never strays too far from our side. Most importantly, he is getting on with his big brother (Barney) well and is very comfortable to snooze with him on the sofa. He loves meeting new dogs and has learnt some great habits from his brother (and not picking up any bad ones). He has a great character and is starting to warm-up to the idea of play. Such as the idea of chasing after a toy and bringing it back (although not always to us, but his bed instead – as he is a little bit of a hoarder). He loves his belly rubbed and stretches out to show us when he wants attention. We are very happy that we have been able to give him a new forever home.
