Hi Everyone,

I am back from my holidays, had a great time. I am so excited, I am collecting a six year old tri girl tomorrow. Before I went on holidays my partner rang me from work (he is a delivery driver) and asked me if I wanted a new little girl. Her story is pretty sad :( The woman that has had her for the last year can no longer keep her, she hasnt got an enclosed back garden and she has two young children so she doesnt feel she can give her the life she deserves. She seen an ad a year ago for puppies for sale and "the mother is free" she rang and arranged to collect the dog, the people met her on the side of a road somewhere (too ashamed propably to let her know where they live) she was in a terrible way when she got her, she was badly matted, had to have 4 teeth removed, had a hernia, an eye and ear infection and they failed to tell her that she is deaf. The poor little thing was just being used for breeding. She is a happy little girl now, she has been spayed and is well looked after. I brought Prince to meet her yesterday and they got along just great, I am collecting her tomorrow because my partner will be off for a week so we can settle her in. I would like to thank Karlin for all the help and advice she has given, I wll post pictures to you all as soon as she is settled :)

Good to know that she is going to be alright now. I always like to hear that a dog is going to a loving family, and I dont understand how anyone could ever want to harm one.

Much love and cuddles to your new girl!:luv:

I will post pictures as soon as I can, thank you all for you kind words, I am so excited, not long to go now. I am sure there are going to be tears when I collect her :cry*ing: , the woman that has had her for the last year really has taken great care of her, its just she hasnt got an enclosed back garden so she had her on a rope during the day and in the house at night. She also has 2 very young children and she really feels she cant give Lucy the time she deserves. She is going to be upset handing her over to me, I have promised her I will text her every week to let her know how she is:luv: , I have also told her about this site so I am sure she will look in every now and again to see pictures of Lucy. Well, only 7 hours to go :rah: I will let you all know tomorrow how we got on :dogwlk:
