Letter from Darcy (now Eva) & family

Good morning,
Was it only Sunday we picked her up?!  Feels like she's been here much longer.  She's definitely got her little furry paws under the table!
We changed her name to Eva & she is already coming back to it really well.  She & Muttley are inseparable, it's great to see them playing tug & racey chasey games after only 2 days together.  Mutt has even consented to sharing his toys in the interest of a good game! 
She gives really good cuddles & likes to lean up against my side for an ear scratch.  This morning I sat down & instantly had Mutt on my lap & Eva against my side - Jas had made me a cup of tea but when he brought it in I didn't have a hand spare!   

Thank you for letting her adopt us.  I'll send over some pictures when I have a minute to get them off the camera. 
Best wishes & two very waggy tails,
Flic, Jas, Muttley & Eva

Letter from Tobi & family

This was taken just after you phoned the other day. He has settled in really well and put on quite a bit of weight. Will send more and keep you up to date.

Letter from Romanian Ronnie & Mum Jean

Dear Sarah and Paul
I will send you a couple of photos in the right format but this is just a token of good faith and to reassure you Ronnie is fine! My dad took these and I await the separate files.
Ronnie is making great progress in all areas except one - the car!
He now does all the stairs well and has spent half a day on a few days at my office. He has spent time alone in my flat and appart from a few loud howls, is fine. He has 3 walks a day, two good sized am and pm and one short toilet break midday. He still is amazing on the lead. He has had a few good runs courtesy of the long training lead I now have and after letting off steam he trots along happily beside me

Letter from Pete Bramble


I thought you might like to see a photo of Bramble after going to the groomers yesterday. Shorter than planned, but it was the only way to get rid of some of the mats. Doesn't he look beautiful !

Best wishes

Letter from Sam & dad

Hi Sarah & Paul,

Hope you are both well and things at Wiccaweys are good, it's now been 18 months since getting Sam and I couldn't imaging life without him now. He is an amazing companion and every day just gets better and better, he is generally very well behaved but still has an insatiable obsession with footballs (to the extent that I can't take him anywhere where they are playing football or rugby!!!
I have attached some recent pictures.

Letter from Sam & family

Hi guys ... Sam is a kovely happy chap ... He hasn't quite made friends with the cat yet but we'll get there eventually. People excite him very much but he's a lovely walker and can sit when asked to! Rachel & Glyn

Letter from Flora, Zoe, Red & family

Hi Sarah and Paul,

Just letting you know how Flora and Zoe are doing. I cant believe its only been a week, wow how much has changed!! Flora has really come in leaps and bounds! When we first got her home she was so shy, she wet herself in the car on the way home, she cowered away when you try to have any interaction with her. I had taken a week off work to make sure the two girls settled in just fine. After a few days Flora started to show signs of trusting me a bit more, she still has trouble with chris but then i have been spending a lot of time with her. She started to folow me and Red everywhere in the house, she would occasionaly take a treat straight out my hand, she started to learn what the lead meant and got very VERY excited! A week later and she now come to the door with tails wagging when the lead is shown, a few times now she has let me put the lead on her without her running back to her bed. She loves loves loves her walkies, her tail wagging high in the air and she has started to want to run after Red and pick up sticks to play with just like he does. She plays with him at home too, chasing eachother up and down the stairs and wrestling. She has also started playing with me! Unfortunately this is usually just before bed time and involves chewing my bra (she wont play with anything else and somehow always finds a bra to chew from somewhere!) She sleeps next to me too, Red is left wondering why she's allowed on the bed and he usually isnt! Its so lovely to see her happy, she has taken a real liking to Red, has no problem whatsoever with the cats or the rabbit. She is learning alot from Red and I think the jealousy is working, she wants a fuss too when I get home, she loves her treats, loves dinner time. She still has a long way to go yet though, she still needs to take that step forward, but she's getting there!

As for Zoe, what a little bombshell she is! I kept her in the guest room for a few days, ive never seen the guest room used so well! Both Zoe and Flora seemed to really like the bed haha! Zoe quickly learned where the strokes and cuddles came from and after a few days I left the door open for her to explore the rest of the house. She is a noisy lady! She meows at everything! And she is in love with Red! She follows him everywhere, purrs around him and would love him to pay her some attention. She was also very glad to see my other cat Delphi, unfortunately Delps feelings weren't mutual. Although Dephi has officialy accepted Flora into our home (she came for a walk with us, thats her little acceptance ritual!) I can't believe how agile Zoe is, she is more than capable of jumping great heights, and she is also desperate to go outside (we have to get out the door ultra quick before she realises!) We call her Rolley Polley Zoe as she loves her tummy tickled, Ive only started to pick her up the last few days and so far she loves a quick cuddle and occasionaly a lift up the stairs :)
Anyway, I hope all this will give you a smile , as they both have given me so many! I love watching their progress. I have been taking pictures when I can and will email those over soon!
