I asked Brian not to do this to me, but he decided on Lily as his B&T of choice. That left me with no choice but to give in to this face:
The fact that she is a little personality and unbelievably affectionate for a girl that was a (failed) kennel breeding dog until a month ago, and cuddled up on my partner's arm, led him to agree that we probably could fit in another cavalier.
This is Tansy who came in with Susie; the two proved very hard to home together. Susie has been homed to a wonderful pensioner down the street from me whose old collie I walk (so now I will also walk Susie); Irish Cavalier Rescue will cover the costs of her meds and care while my neighbour gets the cavalier he has wanted for ages. He is a former ballet dancer and instructor who sadly now is unstable on his feet and housebound -- so very sympathetic to a dog with a health issue and couldn't wait for her to arrive. He was so excited, and had cooked chicken for her on her arrival and Sam his old collie was thrilled with her as well.
With Tansy here, they can visit each other every week.
I have had both of them here the past couple of days plus am still walking my other neighbour's dog so have had 7 in total to walk and mind. Now it will be down to 'just' 5 by Saturday as tomorrow is my last day to care for Nico.
Both Susie and Tansy are two of the sweetest dogs I've had through rescue -- a real credit to their foster Joe who along with his mum took in these two as scared unsocialised dirty little things only a month or so ago. They are transformed doglets and just love attention.
