Introducing Lucy, she is not with us yet, we pick her up on Friday, having gone through quite a rigorous two hours at the Blue Cross, we passed the test. I can see it will be hard for the owners to give her up,but she settled down with us in the 'meet' room and is very friendly and affectionate.
She could do with losing a bit of weight and a trim of her wayward locks but she is a typical small black and white cocker spaniel.
Adam, the lad at the centre was very good, spending time on all of us, and after we had filled in another extensive form we were free to go. On the way home I bought food, a dog cushion, collar and lead. She has been to Portugal, which is more than either of us have, and is not a known chicken chaser. It seems she just wants a warm home, and does not like living outside in kennels, so there may be a few hurdles to overcome, we will see. She is rather pretty though ;)
