at last! She's arrived....

This is in the car on the way back (Yes! I will crate train her..)


Getting a little more comfy...


Stopped off at the vet and she was given the once over. No heart murmur b*n*n*
She had her anal glands cleaned got her shots and had her dew claws clipped. She weighs 7.3 Kg and is about five yrs old. It looks like she had pups at some stage. She was GREAT at the Vets and is now registered as a member of the Lindsay family :jmp2:

She's booked in for Monday week to be Spayed, have one tooth extracted and the rest cleaned, her ears cleaned ,her nails clipped and her Anal glands checked.

I gave her a bath and she loved it...all clean now and snuggled up in her bed in the kitchen fast asleep :slp: :slp: Ooh! I hope she snores !!!!


Will post more pics when she comes out of her shell.

:flwr: :hug:

Ooooooh Claire Penny is beautiful. I'm all teary eyed. I'm so happy for you and for Penny. She is one lucky little girl to get a wonderful mum like you. God bless you for taking her in your home and your heart. She already looks so comfortable with you. I love the way she is resting her head on your leg. She seems to have fallen in love with you already.

What a gorgeous happy looking little girl. She looks so at home in that little bed. What a happy happy day for you and Penny. Congrats.

Claire, I've been checking the forum all evening waiting for you to post.

I don't know what to say. I'm in tears actually. You so deserve Penny and she deserves a loving home like yours too. She is beautiful btw, absolutely beautiful.

Oh Claire, I'm so happy you and Penny have finally made your way to each other. I'm sure you will give each other the many years of love you each crave.

She's a real sweetie!

I'm so glad she is safely with you at last! What a sweet face. So glad all the arrangements came through. Can't wait to meet her now! :) I believe she did come from a bad breeding situation prior to her last home. :(

13th January 2007, 11:08 PM
Oh Claire, I couldn't be happier for you. I know that Rudee is smiling down at you now and happy that you found room in your heart for little Penny.

Congratulations on your new girl.

Lots of love and big hugs for you all & yeah, I hope she snores too :lol:

14th January 2007, 08:33 PM
Good grief! I keep checking the board yesterday to get an update on you and Penny and NEVER thought to check the gallery. Duh! Now that I'm caught up all I can say is YEAH!!! What a doll. I can't imagine having to give her away. She sounds so sweet and I'll bet that in no time she'll warm up to her new family and surroundings. You both are very lucky to have found each other.

I'll let you know when her puppias arrive. Make sure you post plenty of pictures.

14th January 2007, 10:25 PM
She's just beautiful, Claire. And she looks so happy to be resting next to her new mommy. :luv:

I am soooo thrilled for you!!! I am tearing up with joy that you guys have FINALLY gotten together! How wonderful!! I hope your back is all better too. You guys are just a match made in heaven! :luv:

14th January 2007, 11:25 PM
Sydney here,

Penny, from one tri-color to another, you are a very very pretty girl. You are so lucky to have such a good Mom and Dad to take care of you. These humans are pretty good to us, so give your new Mom and Dad lots of love and they will return it ten fold I'm sure. You're in very good hands now. And to Claire, from all of us Cavaliers out there, thanks for giving Penny a good home and another chance. We all love humans like you. *ng*l

Ahhh. I'm so glad that things turned out right, in the end, Claire. Are you keeping the name 'Penny' ? On Dog Borstal, on tv, they recommended that a lady change her dog's name slightly, so he wouldn't associate his name with past events (In his case rescue and some bad behaviour with his new owner).

I'm another who didn't think of looking in this section for an update.

I did not cheek on here till now but so happy for you and of couse for your little Penny more photos please my Sam send lots of love and say you are now home good wisher from Barney and Jazzie as well----Aileen

15th January 2007, 10:17 PM
She's gorgeous!

16th January 2007, 02:46 AM
Make that 4 of us checking the wrong section. The other 3 are just a tad swifter than me, as I took a full day longer!! I wanted to see pics and now that I have, Penny has a look in her eye as if to say - maybe this time all is good? Oh boy, she doesnt know the half of it yet - good is way to much of an understatement. Penny is going to receive 3x the fold of love she could ever expect from you and like wise her to you.

Good thing Karlin today was posting messages saying she was moving things about to keep rescue stuff together - that finally got me on the right path so I could view these darling photos!

P.S. I think she will be fine after the spay with just her dog bed in a nice quiet corner. She has load of time later once she is settled and reassured this home is great to get used to a crate should you want her to learn for future use e.i. car, vet.

16th January 2007, 02:51 AM
Congrats What a beautiful girl

16th January 2007, 03:03 AM
I am so happy for you Claire! Penny is a lucky girl. :flwr:

I hope you have many joyous years together.

16th January 2007, 02:04 PM
Bless you Claire, she is stunning, gorgeous.

I was another one looking in General and Rescued to find info on her, I am sure you are just loving all that loving.

Is your back better sweetie, sounds like you have got yourself one gorgeous addition to your already wonderful family. :D :D :D :D

Thinking of you. :hug: :l*v: :hug:

18th January 2007, 08:50 PM
Penny is beautiful! It sounds like you two have a very special story! I hope to be able to find out more about it here somewhere! ;)

Claire, Penny/now Minnie Moo (cute name) is just gorgeous! She looks so much like my Murphy. He says he is absolutely smitten with her! I am so happy for you all. You have so much love and joy ahead with each other.

Hope your back is better.
