It's Snowing and everywhere is covered with a thin layer of the white pretty stuff. The Llamas are bemused and as always are intigued with anything that varies from their usual routine. I have never come across animals so inquisitive and it will be hard to part with them when the time comes.
Old Henry was adopted by the Merseyside couple who came to see him.Their own elderly Freshfields dog Dave (love that name) appeared to have no animosity towards Henry and vice versa. I am thrilled to find him somewhere so quickly and hope that the two remain on good terms when they find they have to share their home.
A Very Welcome Visit From Penny.
Last year we rehomed a particularly traumatised farm dog called Rosie(now Penny) Some of you may remember the lovely video which owner Ian took of Penny and pal Bruno having a run alongside a river.It was set to a background of music and was very touching, especially considering the dreadful past this collie had experienced. I have only seen one or two dogs as badly frightened as her since my move to Wales.
Just look at her here on the left on the day she arrived, so scared she would not walk and below is Penny on the day she came to visit us , looking perfectly content and her eyes alert and full of intelligence. Fear Gone. fantastic.
It was wonderful to see her now, a completely different dog with confidence and happiness shining out of her eyes.Her progress was not without set backs and it has taken a lot of patience and understanding , but those qualities are exactly what Ian and his partner possess . They loved her from the start and were determined to do their best by her. They succeeded.
