The snow has all gone with us now and the rain returned Friday night with vengeance . Sue kindly sent me a photo of Maisy out in the snow with their other dog Milly and also a lovely portrait photo of Maisy. Maisy is from Primrose's litter born September 2012. Thanks Sue, great to see what friends Milly and Maisy have become.
Next some news of Lucy, who left us over a week ago now and is settling in well with the Lawrence family. Thanks Judith for letting me know how well it is all going and I know Lucy is going to have such a wonderful life with you and your family.
Just to let you know Lucy is settling in well and appears to be happy. We cannot believe we have had her a week, time has flown by. She eats well and likes to go out and gets really excited and loves to meet and greet people. She is very friendly with other dogs which is a bonus. We have not yet let her off the lead as it is early days. Attached are a couple of photos.
Yesterday, Friday, we took her to our vet to get her checked over and she confirmed Lucy does have a mild heart murmur. She gave Lucy the kennel cough drops so we now have all injections together and they will now be due all at the same time. Our vet was very impressed with all the paperwork which we took to go on Lucy's records there, and she said she only wished all other owners did the same- feather in your cap Jane! Lucy's ears have cleared up nicely and the vet just advised to finish off the few drops left and that we had done a good job. At the end of the check over our vet said we had a very good dog and were very lucky to find her. By the way, could you let us know the dates of Lucy's season. It is so the vet can book her in to be spayed as they do not want to do it too early or too near her next season.
Today we are taking her out in the car to Bridport and may be down to the coast if the sun keeps shining, although it is bitter cold and this evening she goes with us to our daugher's for an evening meal. So Lucy is getting out and about and meeting people and other doggy friends!
Hope all is well with you and the family and that you are now all rid of slap-cheek.
Best wishes Judith and Tony and Lucyx
Hi again Jane!
Had to let you know. We took Lucy into Bridport and EVERYONE loved her. It is a very dog friendly town, one of those arty places! You can take the dogs into the shops and the Pet shop assistants loved her and gave her treats and the children in there were making a fuss of her. Loads of people with their dogs and Lucy loved every one of them and they her. They have a market through the streets on Saturdays and of course Lucy was well away with the market stall vendors and especially the ones selling pet food!
We took her into the Ropers Arms, a really old Pub in the town and they welcomed her with open arms. All she was interested in was the open kitchen door but unfortunately we were too late for food so stopped for a hot drink but we will be going in there again now we know they permit dogs. Needless to say when we got back to the car she "zonked out" and we did not hear a pipsqueak from her until we arrived back home. Really successful and fun day.
Lastly some photo's of our girl's.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
