Arrival Story: On the 24 May 2006, me and my siblings were taken into care (Rescue Centre) and was left there with a note pinned to the box we were in pleading for help, it had on it our breeding, age and an apology from the human who couldn't cope wiv us all (6 of us)
I was very frightened as me and my sisters and brothers were poked and prodded about by some human called a Vet, he treated us all fur worms, fleas and pricked us wiv somefink very sharp We wuz then put into a barred room with some food and water and a nice big soft thing which we slept on. We settled down and played somewhat, but we were so tired and still a little scared.
We had lots of humans milling in and out and one by one a sibling would be picked up and never came back
I followed suit and put my bravest face on to try and get a humans attention when the door wuz opened then, on the Saturday I was there again in the corner at the front squashed up against the bars half sat and pawing the air and whining trying to get this humans attention along wiv my only brother that was left.............. when I was spotted by a lady I now call mum, she couldn't help but see me - correction - hear me coz I was whining the loudest and when she bent down to speak to me I answered back and wagged my tail so hard I thought it was gonna fall off. She said somefink to the young girl who then came in and picked me up and handed me to mum who I covered in kisses and banged my tail against her side. Mum didn't like to leave my brother all on his own but just could not take him as well and was upset when, a lady who was directly behind mum said she would take him I was in mums arms and we went into the Rescue Shop and I picked out some toys and a bed and a collar and leash. Mum was chatting away and laughing to a lady behind a desk and there wuz a lot of paperwork lying around. Then a man came up and was ruffling my head and neck and next thing I felt a prick in my neck and heard someone say "all done - Chip in" and off we went to the car where mum had a cardboard box with a nice blanket in and a chew bone to keep me occupied for the long drive home - I liked travelling in that car too and fell asleep quite contented.

Well it was quite a frantic start to the day....mum's alarm didn't go off! Mad rush to get ready but thank goodness everything was left in the hallway the night before and we only had mum and my snacks to put in!
We gots there a bit late and the first display had already started *embarrassed* so we dove straight in BOL.
Then we had two hour stints at the Stand whereby the public was asking questions and petting me, me was in my element with that:D
On the lunch break we had a likkle mooch about the trade stands and me was getting stopped and petted all over the place, mum took me outside for breaks and pee stops so me got some fresh air throughout the day.
After lunch we did another display and a further stint on the stand:)
We had a pawtastic day and finally got home around 8pm. We will always remember this day as one where me, the little rescue dog, came good:D:D:D
me is back home from the new Vets where me had a thorough check; booster and weighed - she said me is as fit as a fiddle and weighed in at a spot on 17.3kg, new Vet suggested the weight recorded last year was underweight for me (15.9kg); ma teeth are amazing with no plaque at all and mum couldn't believe what happened at the end of the examination ...........me actually liked the Vet and gave her a kiss!!!! All mum can say is that'll do for her:D
