Update from Basil

Dear Sarah and Paul, Just a line to let you know how Basil and I are getting on . He is now registered with my vet and has some treatment for his eyes. He has settled down well after peeing on my log basket to mark his territory. But there has been no repeat performance. He now trusts me but any sudden movement will make him cower. On the plus side he will now lead when we walk the fields and off the lead in the dog walk at welland park comes to my whistle. He answers to some commands, but will only sit if there is a treat to be had. { he is not daft ] .  He is a good boy and only needs time and love, we are going to make a great team.  Richard.     

Update from Sally & family

Hi Sarah and Paul,

Just a quick update. Sally is really settling in well. I'm so proud of her, she is so much more relaxed now and loves a good fuss, so much so if you stop she paws you to fuss her again.  She is enjoying lots of walks. We also met my mum and her dog on a walk on Sunday, was intending just to meet Megan and walk on by but they got on really well so we walked together. Yesterday we took Sally to see Megan in my mums Garden. They got on great, Megan is a 5 year old very friendly Border Collie and was a positive influence on Sally as Sally really enjoyed running around with her, even managed to bring us a tennis ball. Sally is relaxing so much more at home and beginning to go outside to go to toilet but still early days. I love the way that we are now getting to see her cheeky mischievous side, can see we may have trouble ahead, lol :).  Honestly I cannot thank you enough for letting us meet Sally and make her part of our family :)   I will keep you updated as she progress's and will put some photos on the Facebook page as we get them.

Thank you again

Gayner, Mark, Amy and Jay xx

Update from Molly

Hi there,

Sorry we haven’t been in touch earlier but here, at last are some pictures of Molly at home and on holiday in Cornwall. She has settled in really well and has decided she’d like to stay with us.

Best wishes,Ian & Jaq

Update from Fynn & Indy

Hi Sarah and Paul. 
It was a year ago Fynn came to live with us in Bristol, how quickly that year has gone. Indy was already very much settled into our family life having adopted him in 2010, considering Indy was used to having all the attention he has accepted Fynn into his life and they get on very well. Fynn has been an absolute star. His confidence has grown enormously which is a delight to see. He has also been doing agility classes which he loves.
He is such a friendly boy and loves meeting dogs but is still a bit unsure around people he doesn't know. They are a wonderful pair and we regularly have comments from people saying what wonderful dogs they are. We are so lucky to have these amazing dogs in our lives and would like to thank you for making this possible. We love them very much. 
Wishing you a very happy Christmas. 
Best wishes,
Kevin, Sara, Indy & Fynn

Update from Rocky

Hi Wiccaweys,

We have had Rocky for almost 8 months now and we love him so much!
He already has my parents wrapped around his paw and has settled in nicely to his routine of a couple of walks a day, treats and milk at bed time. He is a very energetic boy who loves his food and will do ANYTHING for a bit of grub, even cooked veg and has already learnt some tricks and some more basic commands.
He was a little reserved at first and took a bit of time to get to know us, he is still a little unsure of cuddles but now puts up with it and gives in - i think he may have realised that cuddles can be quite nice! He was also food possessive but slowly over time that has deteriated too!

Recently he has enjoyed long walks around the Oxfordshire countryside, loves swimming in rivers and even went to Bournemouth beach where he had his own ice cream! His favourite thing to do though is go exploring through the woods, chasing all the smells and getting a good run. He has already settled in so well into our family and we are looking forward to many more years with him!

Thanks again and we will stay in touch,

Helen & Rocky  x

Update from Swift (now Peggy)


We thought you might like to see a few photos of Swift - who we have renamed Peggy.  We took her to Yorkshire over the bank holiday and she had great fun at the beach and on walks through the countryside.

She has settled in really well and we were able to walk her off lead after a couple of weeks.  She responds to her new name and her recall is very good now: on one occasion she even turned back having set off in pursuit of a deer that ran across her path.

She is an absolute joy and we wouldn't be without her now.

Thank you.

Lynda & James - and Peggy 

Update from Chany

Hi Sarah & Paul,

Just to let you know that I am fit, well & a very happy chappy.
I love life, its great with my two best friends, Pip the Springador
& Tiger the Cat (I know - a cat!! but he`s a real cool dude).

I`ve been going to obedience classes for nearly a year & last night
I passed my Kennel Club, Good Citizen, Bronze award.
My Mum is soooo VERY PROUD of me
(she is any way because I`m a really smashing lad & she says that
she is very lucky to be able to share her life with me, but this was extra special),
what an achievement.

Say “Hi” to all my friends.

Love Chany xx
