Letter from Daisy & family

Hi Sarah and Paul, we just thought we would give you an update 
on Daisy now that she has been with us just over 6 months.
She took a while to settle in completely and find her place in the group 
but is now very used to the routines of the day. Daisy likes nothing better 
than playing ball or bringing a ball to any visitor who may just play with her.
She would play all day if she could !
Daisy recently hurt her leg whilst twisting to catch a ball out on a walk 
and so we took her to the vets who found she has a profound heart 
murmur but you would never know it to see how fast she runs. 
We know ultimately that may have a huge affect on her life span although
both our previous collies all had the same thing and lived to be 13 and 14 
so hopefully Daisy will be with us for many years. Her leg just needed rest for a few days which was easier said than done 
but she is now fully recovered.  Even in the cold weather she still takes 
herself off to the lake for a dip when we are out walking or if she finds a 
bunker on the golf course with water in it that will do. She certainly is not 
afraid of water but as yet we do not know if she can actually swim.
Despite our best efforts we still cannot get her to go in the car so its lucky 
we have fields around us but with the warmer weather coming we hope 
to work more on that so we can get her to enjoy more variety of walks.
Here are a couple of photos we thought you may like, by the way the 
bed she is asleep in is a cats bed!

Take care and hope all is well with Wiccaweys.

Carol & Lyn
