all already xx
Happy New Year from Stan x
Happy New Year from Zion, hope you all had a great Christmas! X
Ivor has definitely settled down with us. I know it’s
only been a week but i couldn’t imagine life without him.
It's such a good feeling
when our pups come back for a visit. Thought we would never be able to rehome ZION - he was becoming one of those boomerang dogs - each time coming back for
a different issue! He was obviously just waiting for the right family to come
along! He popped in for a visit with his new mum and he was a different dog! He
has put on weight and looked so happy
:) This is one much loved pooch and it shows.
Thanks so much Emma for calling in - great
seeing you Zion xx
Hello everyone, Rolo update, I was a bit poorly sick just before xmas so I had a visit to the nice
vet lady. I had my own VIP entrance which was fab until I saw a picture of a
cat on the wall and almost launched off the table
I is much better now!!! Getting in to the new
routine of something call work and school. I run and hide when Mum gets ready
for work!!! Any way must go as I smell cheese. Love and woof Rolo
Decko (now Dobby) has had a good first day.
He has been getting on great with our other dog,
and absolutely adores the kids!
He settled down straight away when we put him to
bed, and we never heard a peep from him all night.
Much to my surprise he was totally clean when we
came down this morning (he has had a lot of tummy problems in kennels) and has
been eating fine.
He even came on the school run this morning!
He loved meeting all the kids, and enjoyed taking
the long way home through the woods.
His only issue so far is he got a bit stressed when
he realised there is a rabbit run in the garden.
We have since moved the bunny in to the shed round
the side of the house. He is still pacing the back garden whining, trying to
find where he has gone, but I'm hoping he will soon forget about the rabbit and
just enjoy playing on his nice big lawn
Hello, Just thought we'd
let you know how little Bran (renamed
from Bentley) was getting on after
his 1st week at home.
He's settled in so well and nothing seems to
phase him (apart from his reflection which took a few days for him to realise
wasn't a scary, strange dog!)
He's had a busy week meeting lots of new family
and doggy friends, exploring new places and lots of learning.
He's currently fast asleep and snoring on his sofa
after a morning at Habberley Valley
It’s Trixie’s third Gotcha Day today. We can’t believe where the time has gone. We are very
lucky to have her live with us! Here’s a few pics from the last 12 months which
she thought you’d like to see. She’s had another fab year. She had a little op
in May to remove a tiny sebaceous cyst (she wasn’t fond of the baby grow) but
other than that all fine. She send lots of love and hopes that all of your
current residents get to be as lucky as she is in their search for a forever
Tess getting the first of many walks around Himley
We had a wonderful visit
from our gorgeous boy ALFIE and his mum and dad who run the Black Star in
Lorne - Thank you for letting us give this fabulous
little lad his forever home. He is the best thing that could've happened to us
and we think he feels the same! He's cuddly, good on the lead, nice to the cat,
enthusiastic about walks and squirrels! Also rather keen on sitting on beds
whenever he gets the chance!
Elvis aka Teddy it’s been a month since he’s joined us and he’s really setting in well!
Heres an update on Ellie (was Alesha).
Shes been with us almost 2 yrs in March.
Jeez how time flies.
As I’m sure u remember she was a total nightmare but look at her now.
Within the last 3/4 months it’s almost as if something just clicked with her.
She stopped chewing things - apart from teddies - has finally realised that Lil
Charlie our chihuahua x is the boss and alpha dog and now responds very well to
commands on walks , etc.
It’s like having a totally different dog.
She’s very affectionate, loves us to play games and at night we have both dogs
in bed with us lol.
She’s spoilt rotten and has developed a lovely personality.
Oh and she loves her collection of dog jumpers, hoodies etc.
She is much loved and I’m so glad we stuck with her and everything finally fell
into place xx
Decko - Can't
believe he has only been with us a week, he has settled so well, it's like he
has always been here
Charlie chilling with
his new best mate Barney on his first holiday in Lincolnshire.
its the Kenco family. Sorry we have not been in touch for a while.
First off merry xmas, lol, and a happy New year. Late as it may be. XXX
we thought that we would upload a few pics.
First though I want to say that Kenco has lit up
our lives ! He is such an amazing dog.
I have been meaning to write this since before xmas
but time runs away even with the best of people. I'm not one of those, but I
. I hope you enjoy these pics just as much as I loved taking
He was cold but loved my jacket. Every time I put
it down he lies on it. I don't think that it's mine any more lol
And the last picture is tonight as I can't sleep.
Seriously though, Kenco has
helped me through so much and earned his place on my bed and in our lives. He
has grown in more ways than one and is the best of best friends!!!
He has a forever home locked down xxxx
Our beloved boy Max,
also from Forests Rescue. Changed from a thug to a
lap dog...but loves to be out sniffing for hours - squirrels are his favourite.
..never caught one ....yet! Just loves children, he our great-grandson have
been bonding since they met!
This is Basil from FDR had him for 4 months settled in well with our other dog
update;.getting too used to his creature comforts, won't go out when it's
raining now, except on his morning and pm walks, but turns round to come home
after not very far when it's wet.lol would rather play xx
Shadow has been to his usual groomer at the local pet shop and they
put his photo on their facebook page. Attached the picture for you to see. He
is not doing too badly for an old un. I noticed when I took him out in the snow
that he was leaving scrape marks with his back feet. He seems to drag them a
little before he puts his paw on the ground. The ladies in the groomers tried some bootees on him but
he didn't like them. I put some bandages over his feet yesterday. He didn't
care for them much but he was walking better at the end of the walk. We thought
he was slow coming home from his walks because he was tired but it maybe
because his feet were a bit sore. Also put some moisturising cream on when we
got covered by socks for a little while - til he pulled them off. We are going
to look on line to see if we can find something suitable in the way of boots
He still loves his walks and play
fighting with John and is still spoilt by both of us. We have had him almost 2
years now and he is still a funny boy at time. We have never known such an avid
TV watching dog!
Best wishes Jill and John
12 months ago today this crazy boy came to live
with us. We’ve had a mad year but he’s definitely part of his forever family.

lots of love from Rolo
No shower for Rolo today way too muddy! Box bath it is!!!
Had a lovely email from Reggie's mum to say he
was doing brilliantly but he has unfortunately been diagnosed with Kidney
Failure at 3 years old
They only knew there was a problem as he had really bad
breath - so we thought we share this info as something to look out for with
your own dogs.
He is however doing well, is now on special food and it is
certainly not letting it slow him down in any way. Here is fab pic of Reggie
being very patriotic bless him.
The ending of the email read -
"Regardless of his life length we will make
sure every second counts as he is fully part of our family and loved by
Massive thank you to Laura and her family - sending
Reggie massive hugs from all of us here
Monty (was Woof!). He was one of Eve's puppies -
can't believe its been 2 years!
"Happy birthday to Monty, two years old today! Happy
birthday to all of his brothers and his sister.
Thought you’d like picture of Monty (was Woof!) who’s 2 today.
He’s still as lively as ever. Wouldn’t be without him. He loves everyone he
meets and we all love him.
Hope you’re all well there and hope to see you at
one of your open days this year."
Can't wait to see you Monty
Happy birthday Monty from Luna

"Greetings from Weston Beggard, and the
new domain of the princess Cora (to be
renamed when we can get it right!)
Apparently this place is OK. Within 5 minutes she'd eaten her
dinner and asked for more.... we put blankets on the floor which she lay on
immediately, moving to the rug while we had our supper.... and she was really
Having extracted the big dog bed from the loft we have now
transferred the blanket off the floor... plus several layers of cushions. This was pronounced to be in order and she is now
curled up as relaxed as can be.
Apart from lying down on the freezing grass and
refusing to come in until Trevor produced something tasty, the first evening
has gone well."
