My mummy has just been telling me the wonderful story of how she came to adopt me. When Luke passed away in January mummy was very sad and wanted to adopt an older Cavalier. She tried through many rescue charities but many of them had ex breeding dogs who had to be adopted in pairs. Although I once stayed in a horrible breeding farm it was some years ago.
Mummy then contacted Cavaliers in need in Ireland. She was willing to drive all the way there to adopt a dog. She says its a long way from Inverness. My mummy is soooo lovely.
They put her in contact with Janet, Charlie my friends mummy, who lives locally and she did a home check. They make sure you have enough garden and a nice home before you are passed for adoption.
Lovely Janet told mummy about Auntie Katie from NBCR. Auntie Katie emailed mummy my picture and she fell in love with me. Mummy drove all the way to Auntie Katie’s house where I was staying, 160 miles away, to pick me up. I have also fallen in love with my lovely kind mummy and my Bob.
I am such a lucky Princess!!!
Mummy hopes my blog will encourage others to adopt older rescue dogs as we do bring joy, happiness and companionship to many.
