Lucy





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 ;)

    1. Hello Trudie, thanks for the encouraging words, LS was reading up on them last night, and they do seem an attractive breed. Will photo her eventually...

  3. So pleased it has all worked out for you. You do really need a dog to take with you on walks like the lovely one you posted down that pretty lane. That walking will soon work off that bit of extra weight you say she carries.

    1. Yes apart from missing not having a dog, the walking was always important to, LS is always reluctant if the weather is bad ;).

  4. Congratulations Thelma! One should never be without a dog once you have lived with one, and I'm sure she will be very happy there.

  5. Morning John, She has been a long time coming, and you are right, dogs are part of the household, though for my cat friends, cats are part of their households, but you can't walk a cat.
