Here's Chrissie, our new addition to the family! She was in a shelter for several weeks and we adopted her yesterday. She's so adorable and she's settling in really well.George loves her and is so relaxed around her. She was pretty badly matted so she had a good hair cut! We just can't believe our luck!!

PS Top pic taken in shelter. Bottom pic in the garden yesterday and the collar belongs to George hence the big size. She has her very own bright red one now!

Thanks a million guys. She's such a little dote. She's a bit nervous obviously coming from the shelter but she's doing really well. She has already claimed her spot on the couch beside George and he's more than happy to share! At this moment she's snuggled up beside my oh and seems more than content!

Generally it is better to link to the online album where the pics are stored (eg external website like Flickr or Photobucket, not albums within the board, especially as the URL structure may change with a new board version due out shortly). :thmbsup:

George looks like he's very happy to have a new friend. Will you be keeping both their coats short? I reckon Chrissie's coat looked cute long, even with the tangles :)

Congratulations on your new addition to the family. She looks like she is fitting in really well already. :) I'm sure she is so happy to be out of that shelter and into your loving home. :l*v:

Poor little Chrissie's coat was so mangled that she had a very bad rash on her chest. The vet is treating it with antibiotics and a short course of steroids. We're also bathing it to keep it clean. It's looking better already. We usually keep George fairly short. He's only been groomed quite recently and we got it fairly tight with the warm weather. She's a little angel. She's only had one little accident in the house because she's so comfortable on the couch and won't go out! She seems quite put out when we pick her up and carry her outside! :-)

Aww bless her. She does look like she's stuck to that lap like glue. It must be very rewarding for you knowing how much she loves being with you.

Yes George is much bigger. His build is completely different to Chrissie's and to most cavs I've met. He's tall with long legs. But I love every inch of him!! :-)

I can't see these photos either and I'm using a PC with Firefox. Anyone else having the same trouble?
